Can't find Perceptor's Stamina in my AA line.  New and trying to learn.  I see the OP is very old, so I'm thinking I'm pretty much SoL, at the moment.

Has anyone updated the necro soloing build for post SF and the AA tree changes?  I was previously running a build somewhat similiar and I free handed it after the aa builds and it's plenty effective against `most' things, but I've lost a lot of survivability against ^^^ (like the griffon and mithmarr in love.)  Anyone have a good suggestion for a comperable build top to bottom for a solo necro with tank pet?

I've been gone for awhile.. since before nearly every class has had it's AA lines and stat scaleing redone.

Came back with the wife.. and we're playing a SK/Necro duo (Shes the SK).. and I'm telling her to pump the INT line because that's how it used to be done. Apon further investigation I'm way out of touch with her class and feeding her the wrong info. I got to looking at my own trees and felt completely lost.

The two builds on here are good, but I was sorta looking for a middle of the road hybrid build. With her being a tank, I don't want to take the full solo pet tank route.. because she needs to learn to tank.. but is a weaker player. I figured some kind of hybrid build between the two would be helpfull for leveling.. at which point I can fall into one of the two primary builds.

Anyone out there run a build with Duo'ing with a weaker skilled SK in mind? I'd love some help working something like that out. Give me abit of meat in the DPS department.. but take some of the tank burden off her when she gets overwhelemed as a newer player.

Thanks!

majority of soloing in SF can be done in full dps build and should pose no problem for duoing pair

  • Perceptor's Bodyguard - 4

(Note: You are now at 50 points spent and can now start working down TSO trees, sadly you will have to waste 10 points in the general tree to get to the mage enhancements to your Solo ability)

TSO GENERAL – 10

(Note: none of these will help you from a Solo/Survivability point of view but 10 points must be spent to get to the next tree. As a suggestion extra power is always good for a mage and extra health is good for your Lifeburn.)

  • Any ability – 5
  • Any Ability - 5

TSO MAGE – 11

  • Root Mastery - 5
  • Runic Protection – 5
  • Bewilderment - 1

TSO NECROMANCER – 14

  • Archlich's Lifetap – 5
  • Shield of Bones – 5
  • Disease Mastery – 2
  • Wrath of the Undead Servant – 2

(You now have 186 points spent. 70 in Summoner, 70 in Necromancer, and 46 in the TSO trees. You have a total of 14 points left over to be spent in TSO trees. Nothing else helps you much from a Survivability point of view but here are some recommendations on how to spend them)

  • Minion's Pact – 5 (extra debuffing)
  • Macabre – 3 (Shorten timer on Feign Death)
  • Noxious Clensing – 1 (Self Nox Cure)
  • Pet Weapon Mastery – 5 (Extra Damage)

I think SOE have changed some stuff.

Well i hope you can help me out.

Sentinel's fate lvling/dps Build

Well i managed to get my adept3 lvl 83 rogue pet, and i wanted to try a build focused on this familiar. Why ? I found that theres many quest in Sentinel's fate asking you killing XXX mobs to update and i wanted to kill a bit faster. Sooo here is my build.. it's focused on the familiar keep it in mind.

Oh and as a feedback.. Now my rogue pet is killing so fast.. so fast i feel useless SMILEY

Ok its based on a 170 AA pool start.

SHADOWS AA TREE

TSO GENERAL

Heart Constitution 5/5Swift Journey 5/5 (or anything else)

TSO MAGE

Root Mastery 5/5Runic Protection 5/5Bewilderment 1/1

NECROMANCER AA TREE

Now.. you've got 18 AA to spend.. you can choose to go for Bloodpact or Ooze Crawler.. Once you've got 70AA look at SF AA again.

Minion's Adeptness 5/5Minion's Soustealing 1/1 (5)Noxious Debilitation 5/5

Well.. at this point you might be 90.. it's time to think about a raid/group or a solo-tank build again.

Drop the scout pet, get Expert mage pet and start researching for it so you eventually get it mastered. Scout pet is [Removed for Content] atm and has been for years. If you need better tank, then use the tank pet.

http://everquest2.com/Mistmoore/Giga/

go to the AA tab (to lazy to type it out).  That is a 250 AA build.

Gonna move things around a bit, mainly points of FD focus into deity pet for the extra INT for more dps.

It works just fine for me.  With the right group build I am parsing 26-30k+.  No caster buffs I am still doing near 20k.

Hello, I'm new to the necromancer class and recently back from a year hiatus.  I am hoping to get some updated information on an AA build focused on dps.  I'm not sure which pet to use, the scout or mage, and there appears to be conflicting suggestions thus far.  Can anybody help me?

Thank you in advance.

One post back is my AA build which is current.  It is a very useful and powerful dps spec for groups or raids.  Only thing I would chance is putting points into master strike and/or deity pet.  Just haven't got around to figuring out what I wanna remove points from first.

Thank you for the quick reply.  I saw your post and followed the link, but found the AA tab very difficult to read, so I wasn't having much luck with it.  I'll look at it some more and see what I can glean from it.

I was also wondering though... which do you rcommend, the scout or the mage pet?  I realize this can be situational, but I'm not even sure which situations call for which pet. SMILEY

Mage pet, the scout pet is still the weakest line in our pet lines.  They gave it a little love, but nowhere near the amount it needs.  It still melees like it is in jello and the flurry chance etc just doesn't do it.

I second the post above.  Even when I first looked at the game in TSO the OP's way of going down the AA trees for a solo/tank pet build seemed pretty re-re.

Yes, Tainted Heals are great, but your damage is so terrible you'd have been better off starting off as a Conjuror and then waiting until you had 50-60+ AAs before you bothered betraying to Necro if that's what you want to play...

Also, some discussion must be given to whether or not a new/leveling player should level with the mage or tank pet.  When I betrayed to Conjuror I didn't use my Stoneskins or pet stonskins - or even my pet heals on anything but Heroic and Named MOBs.  I used the Mage pet from basically 30'ish to 60 with no issues.  I cannot see the benefit of doing a tank build even for leveling since I can't imagine a 60 Necro has worse surviveability than a 60 Conjuror given the Fears, Roots, Stuns, Life Tap/AE Life Tap and Tainted Heals.

The conjuror forum has all sorts of information and discussion about this.  This forum seems a bit barren.

Sorry if it feels like I'm just complaining.  If I had the knowledge and/or experience I'd contribute it in a New York second.

in all honesty you will get more info on the forums which must remain unnamed, they are and have always been a better collection point for info concerning this game

Could someone please post an updated AA Progression chart like what the OP did?  I am coming back after almost a year, and am lost.  I want to know first and foremost the proper sequence for a Tank (Solo) build.  Thank you

Right now it's a bit awkward since the AA trees just changed.  I believe most of the differences now though are going to be you don't need to take filler AA to go down a specific tree.

I can make a new AA thread in the near future.

In the mean time here's roughly the DPS spec that I'm using on my Necro.

Play around with the STR tree however you see fit. Do note that, because of Blood Pact, Reanimate isn't a good option in my opinion for us. And the Necro tree is about 30% needed AAs, 70% Filler.

Here is what I use as a raider . This is a slightly different spec than I have been using since I changed a couple points around in the Heroic tree to drop the points in Prowess ( I did hours of parsing on this )

http://beetny.com/eq2aa/#GU63;et250...1t300a@3080a001

With this AA setup you will notice that

Crit is not maxed ( guild and content only require about 410cc unbuffed )

NO teamwork ( had to many problems with it)

Shadow Step is at minimum ( doesnt seem to work half the time)

Re animate is present ( AND USED A LOT in the new content)

in the Heroic tree points are in HP and a receint change from 8 in prowess to 8 in ET as the loss of 138 int from prowess made almost zero difference but on raids a 3.2 second longer ET will make more of a difference

I run right side prestige but as we sometimes have 2 necros in raid ( I know Right!!! ) the other necro runs left side for self re animate ( parses well below my parses )
