Necromancer SnB PVE Build

Table of Contents

Description

Erebus is a Sword and Shield Stamina Necromancer PVE DPS Build! The build is using One Hand and Shield as its main Weapon to deal damage and fulfill the role of DPS.

Although a traditional Tanking Weapon, you can use Sword and Shield effectively as a DPS weapon with the right setup. Erebus offers two different setups, one with Trial gear and one without. It is also a great DPS Build for Group or Solo gameplay.

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Necromancer Beginner Guide.

If you are looking for a Solo PVE Build for Arenas like the Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows, take a look at my Stamina Necromancer Solo Build.

You can find more Builds in the Necromancer Builds page.
