Hmm, that's a tricky one. These are my favourite classes.... Necromancer should be more fun in PvE! Wait, noo, I don't know. Just play both. Toss a coin to decide which to play first :)

classes are all so much fun i have trouble just picking 5.. keep switching between them everyday.. currently leveling necro and warrior but that thief and mesmer keep staring at me... then my good ol engineer as well grrr :P

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

I chose to be a MM necro due to me dieing all the time and it helped me not die. It's fun though you can build one completely different way to another.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

I really like the survivability of my necro (lvl 43). I am also trying a mesmer, really fun,but she is only lvl 8 atm. I did die a lot in BWE's with a mesmer tho but they have tweaked them so I am not sure how squishy they are now.

You will find mesmer a little weak at the start but after a couple of levels it starts getting better.

I'm a lvl 35 memser using sword/pistol and staff, my mesmer is kinda different from the usual crowd as I'm trying to make it the most melee focused possible. (Have high damage and almost 50% crit chance already)

It's fun and all but sometimes I get thoughts in my head if I shouldn't have started as thief instead as i always start as thief but wanted to try and get a swordsman able to cast magic and mesmer is the closest one there is. (Wish the secpter could be used in off hand tough, sword 2nd skill is too good to miss.)

Wouldn't the torch work better in off hand for a melee build? I know pistol has high damage, but the stealth then aoe burn of the prestige seems to go better with sword to me (especially since you are using staff as alternate which is very condition damage based)

Or focus, for fun leaping through that speed up field and the defensive bubble illusion. I guess all the off hands work with sword except sword itself which seems to work better with sceptre in a block build.

Torch is good but the aoe damage is honestly low, on the other hand a pistol has a shot that hits max 3 enemies giving them each a different status effect (An extra stun skill) and the phantom while shooting seems to slow down the enemies.

With a sword/pistol I always start summoning the phantom, shooting the stun pistol skill, go melee and use the sword skill that makes you evade hits and if it#s still alive I still have the signet that can stun the enemy and/or blind it while waiting for cooldowns.

It's pretty good even vs veterans and champions switching between sword/gun and staff while distractiing it with stuns and illusions/phantoms.

Torch is the 2nd in the list for me, I only use focus for the speed buff it's phantom is not that good in pve.

Between my mesmer and necro, I prefer mesmer. However with mesmer I have to kite and dodge a little to keep myself from being killed while with necro I can tank it a bit because of the built in life siphon in some attacks and higher health pool- build necro with some toughness and you have yourself a magic casting tank. Necro reminds me of my dark powers brute in City of Heroes which steals health from the target and builds up damage the more I fight.


One thing I do differently on necro over the other classes is that I use the healing well over all the others even when solo, despite it being 40 seconds cooldown, it heals better than the rest and you have a couple abilities depending on weapon you're using that heals you as well, the default heal is horrible and the pet minion is weak.

The Necro is a complex healer - multilayered.

For instance - I tried a build with siphon on hit & crit, decreased well cooldown, and use staff for combo on multilayered wells (blood and darkness a favourite) and the heals are great (lifesteal and condition removal including burns and bleeds every shot) as long as you stay in the well and the blinds are locking your opponents direct attacks down you get a period where incoming damage drops off a cliff and your heals erase dots and are supplemented very well.

It's a five second game changer....

Hate the first fight in TA though - use well of blood and the the vine/worms basically fill them with ground targetted damage - gits!
