Due to vacation and summer season, our build guides might not be fully updated yet to reflect the recent balance patch. Visit our Discord server for immediate support.

Overview

As a good complimentary build to the Condition Reaper one, the Condition Scourge excels at providing supplementary defensive support abilities for a group whilst still going full damage, as well as superior area damage to its Condition Reaper counterpart. Because both builds are so similar in terms of their equipment (minus infusions) it allows for an experienced Necromancer player to swap between the two on the fly as a situation requires it.

Scourge has a simplistic "rotation" in that you have less skills overall to use, but it is counterbalanced by the need to "maintain" parts of your kit for your damage output to excel; namely keeping up two sand shades, using punishment skill in tandem with said shades and maintaining life force to allow for use of your Shroud skills.

If you keep on top of this, Condition Scourge can also adapt itself to utilize tools to assist a team, be it a requirement for more condi cleanses, barriers, portals, boon corruption, etc; with all of this packed into a build that will not have its damage disrupted should the group be forced out of melee range.

This build is recommended for situations where boon corruption may be needed for the team, extra forms of projectile mitigation are required, or if large scale cleaving damage via

Epidemic is desired (and can also allow you to solo/carry most fractals should you gain enough mastery over it).

Swap Weapons

You can also run

Superior Sigil of Bursting instead of
Superior Sigil of Geomancy
if you are heavily using
Epidemic
for an encounter. You also don't need to weapon swap if you run
Superior Sigil of Bursting
. Can run a Dagger for more condi cleanse, or a Warhorn for more CC (for the former geomancy is fine but for Warhorn you would just run bursting).

(Placing your Scepter and Torch in your weapon slots as shown above will allow you to weaponswap despite only having one torch).
