The Build is designed for Battlegrounds and in general no-CP PVP. While its nature is primarily that of a Crowd Control build, Undertaker can kill solo several enemies as well.

Build Difficulty Rating – 4

Undertaker is a fun DPS-Support hybrid Magicka Necromancer PVP Build. The build offers several support abilities that heal and crowd control enemies.

An excellent PVP Build to defend choke points and deny space to the enemy thanks to its fear and burst damage.

Undertaker is Magicka hungry. Your Magicka will go down fast in a prolonged fight which increases the build’s difficulty.

To deal with this you can use potions, restore Magicka with Mystic Siphon and even heavy attack with your Restoration Staff.


Buff yourself with Summoner’s Armor and summon Spirit Guardian. Start your attack with Stalking Blastbones and Degeneration to boost your Spell Damage.

Finish enemies with Crushing Shock. Use Harness Magicka to get a shield, Mystic Siphon on corpses to restore Magicka and Radiating Regeneration to heal.

Agony Totem can fear enemies, boost your defense and provide your group with a synergy.

Glacial Colossus is your offensive Ultimate and Light’s Champion your defensive/support.
