<pvxbig> [build prof=ritua/necro spawni=12+1+3 deathm=12 restor=3+1][boon of creation][explosive growth][animate bone minions][optional][death nova][blood of the master][optional][flesh of my flesh][/build] </pvxbig>

  • Optional Optional 2 should be:


  • Possible Weapon set options:
  • Best Vigor rune possible and superior Spawning Power. All other minor runes to conserve health.
  • Survivor or Radiant Insignia. Runes of Vitae and/or Attunement are also recommended.


  • Create Bone Minions when you already have a Flesh Golem. This doubles the Explosive Growth damage and provides two targets for Death Nova. With Boon of Creation, this skill almost entirely recovers its energy cost upon successful cast.
  • Use Blood of the Master to keep minions alive between battles.
  • Use Death Nova on yourself as a cover enchantment in disenchantment-heavy areas.

Check General minion mastery guide for an in depth discussion of minion usage.


  • Enchantment removal.
  • Corpse denial, including faster-casting Well spells.
  • Holy Damage, which causes double damage against undead creatures.
  • High-powered Area of Effect damage, easily dispatching the low-level minions before they come into Death Nova range.
