This build has been archived as of 21:20, 22 July 2008 (EDT), for the following reasons:

  • Dark Aura functionality changed to match description; since neither Protective Spirit nor Aura of the Lich prevent "lose life effects", you pretty much kill yourself whenever you cast
  • Changed functionality of Aura of the Lich.

This build had been designed for the following use:

This build was in the category Other before being archived.

The purpose of the 27hp sacrifice farmer is to bring the necromancer down to 27hp and use sacrifice skills combined with Dark Aura to deal massive AoE damage.

<pvxbig> [build prof=necro/monk deathm=12+1+3 soulre=1+3 bloodm=3+3 healin=9 protec=9][protective spirit][healing breeze][dark aura][blood of the master][dark pact][aura of the lich][mending][balthazar's spirit][/build] </pvxbig>



  • Use Radiant insignias on your armor to boost your energy.
  • Every piece of armor should have a superior rune. Death Magic is a must.



The usage is similar to 55hp builds. Cast Balthazar's Spirit and Mending when you enter an area and wait for your energy to return to max. Once you see your enemy, cast Aura of the Lich, Protective Spirit, Healing Breeze and Dark Aura. Once you are in the fight, spam Blood of the Master and Dark Pact to deal AoE damage through Dark Aura. Maintain Aura of the Lich, Protective Spirit, Healing Breeze and Dark Aura during the battle.




  • This build can survive larger groups of enemies than a normal 55hp build because of Aura of the Lich.
  • Another advantage of this build is the fact that you don't have to wait for the enemy to attack (or cast a spell) to deal damage, unlike SS or SoJ. You can also run down enemies that scatter.
  • The idea of this build is to decrease your health below 55hp without any Death penalty, so you can keep your energy as high as possible.
  • With Aura of the Lich, 15% Death penalty will decrease your health to 16 (with the -50hp Grim Cesta unequipped), 30% is 18hp (with one piece of armor off), 45% is 19hp (with two pieces of armor off).
  • If you don't have the -50hp Grim Cesta, you can still use Aura of the Lich to bring you down to 52 health. In that case, dark aura and sacrifice skills can be changed to other attacking skills (such as Mark of Pain.)
  • With 27hp, sacrificing 5% health results in 0 damage taken, 10% = 1 damage, 17 = 2 damage, 25% = 3 damage
