  • As additional energy isn't needed, Undertaker's Insignias or Survivor's Insignias are your best choice.
  • A 40/40 Death Magic set.
The Equipment Template for this build is:


  • Always keep up Contagion, Dark Aura and Death Nova.
  • Destroy enemy shrines, focusing mainly on Quarries.
  • Use Putrid Bile on your target, preferably an NPC in the middle of the shrine, which will always be a Mesmer.
  • Use Shadow Walk to teleport to your target.
  • Use Signet of Agony and Touch of Agony to trigger Dark Aura and eventually Death Nova.
  • If possible, try to use Death Nova on dying allies.
  • Do not fear dying. You will be resurrected very fast, and dying triggers Death Nova.
  • Use Dash to get to shrines faster.


  • Massive enchantment removal.
  • Tactical snaring.
  • A monk.


  • Pairs well with a ranger carrying EoE.
