Our goal as a Necromancer will be to maximize DPS. Spell focus items become active in Luclin, which raises the DPS output of the Necromancer significantly on boss fights. There are more focuses than just the ones on this guide. This guide was built to maximize stats while picking up the important focuses, to improve both damage and quality of life. Focus Items do not stack, the highest one takes effect. This build does have an overlap or two, which is just a coincidence.

We will want the following focuses:

– Improved Casting Range 15%

– Increased Spell Haste: Detrimental 20% // DoT 33% // and Beneficial 30%

– Increased Damage: Direct Damage 23-26% (23% in this build) // DoT 20%

– Mana Preservation: All spells 20% (18% in this build) // DoTs: 23% // Beneficial Spells 40% (Self-Only)

– Any additional “skill mods” we can get. Some examples: Brilliance or Ro on Crown of Energy reduces our chance to fizzle. Orb of Secrets has a +2% (10 max) increased Meditate skill mod

**Note: Damage and Mana Preservation focuses have an “up to” modifier. For example: If you see +20% Improved Damage referenced in this guide, it means your spell damage will do anywhere between 1-20% increased damage. The same goes for Mana Preservation.

Necromancer Goals:

1) Focus Items

2) +15 Mana Regen from items (Flowing Thought).

3) Maxing Intellect/Stamina

4) Obtaining as much Mana and HP as possible, with Mana as the tie breaker. Also +HP Regen where possible

5) Pet Focus (Gloves of Dark Summoning)

6) Shield Item for additional AC (Secondary Item in this guide counts as a Shield)

Below are the approximate stats you can expect:

This character doesn’t have any +stat AA clickies (Mana/HP/Regen/Resists, etc) clicked, so if you have any of those add them onto this profile to estimate your stats.
