Now that Discord has a one second activation time i think you should switch Mind Bender it out for a better PvE skill. if shadow of fear 2 sec activation seems like a problem switch it for something like the already mentioned suffering or Pbond. Watch me work it 04:31, 30 May 2008 (EDT)

Discord used to have 2 seconds activation. It was buffed. - Misery Is Hawt19px 04:46, 30 May 2008 (EDT)
i know, thats why i typed 'now that'. Watch me work it 05:01, 30 May 2008 (EDT)
Why would you want to stop using it because it was buffed? Do you mean switch out Necrosis? Discord still has a 2 second recharge, so does necrosis. This way you can spam spam spam more. Necrosis only does slightly less damage, even with aftercast I think you'd win. - Misery Is Hawt19px 06:36, 30 May 2008 (EDT)
i meant switch out Mind Bender, sorry typed it wrong ;), Mind Bender is still useful but so are lots of other PvE only skills.Watch me work it 12:43, 30 May 2008 (EDT)
  • Weapon of Warding>Resilient with all that condition removal
  • Mend Body and Soul>Vengeful Weapon
  • The minion bomber should be necro primary to have a hope of maintaining energy.
  • Infuse Condition isn't useful there because it doesn't have any form of draw and isn't meant to be tanking.

¬ Klumpeet 07:36{GMT}31-05-MMVIII

I also think a normal necro MM is better, i use that myself but haven't tried the rit one so not commenting about it. Resilient weapon is great for its armor, since you will have almost only low armor partymembers, and Mend Body and Soul>Vengeful Weapon really depends on the situation. Btw, signet of lost souls overkill imo since you already have SR and a minion bomber. Watch me work it 04:29, 31 May 2008 (EDT)
I don't really have a problem with having a N/Rt Bomber, although I would take out Discord for Jagged Bones, Infuse Condition for Animate Shambling Horror and possibly find room for Spirit's Gift (for lots of small heals for your Minions). Some skills to consider for your Rt/Ns would be Protective Was Kaolai, Pure Was Li Ming and Weapon of Shadow. -Mike 08:53, 31 May 2008 (EDT)
I tried all of these but jagged bones isn't neccesary, animate bone minions is more than enought. one shambling horrors isnt enought, tried taking shambling on 2-3 necro but then they all cast it at same time which greatly lowers efficiency. infuse conditions isn't worth taking i agree. i also took PwK on every N/Rt, works really really well. another advantage of a necro Minion bomber is that you have room for a secondary, creating room for the always useful Protective Spirit. Watch me work it 10:01, 31 May 2008 (EDT)
I agree on you guys, i think i'll switch the bomber to n/mo with aegis, PS and SoA, and PwK isnt that bad idea to have on 1 n/rt Smurf Minions 15:03, 31 May 2008 (EDT)


I've been using this for HM:

Assassin's Promise "Finish Him!" "You Move Like a Dwarf!" Necrosis Enfeebling Blood Mark of Pain Optional Optional
Discord Signet of Lost Souls Putrid Bile Animate Shambling Horror Rip Enchantment Patient Spirit Healing Ring Infuse Health
Discord Signet of Lost Souls Putrid Bile Animate Shambling Horror Blood of the Master Patient Spirit Healing Ring Healing Whisper
Discord Signet of Lost Souls Putrid Bile Animate Shambling Horror Death Nova Patient Spirit Healing Ring Vengeance

Kills fast. Insane single-target damage, lots of aoe. I wouldn't really recommend Assassin's Promise without some good PvE skills to go with it though. Thought about switching the necs to N/Rt's but meh, haven't really messed around with it so far. P A R A S I T I C 18:00, 14 June 2008 (EDT)

Vengance =P --Fallen (talk) 18:22, 14 June 2008 (EDT)
It's like a temp res - by the time the 30secs is over, the battle is usually almost done and the death is a free corpse. As for the posted build: I'd put Enfeebling Blood on the human player - the player will always use it better than a hero, and that's important because of how much damage it reduces. I'd just drop Weaken Armor, but put it on a hero if you really want it. Too many res skills imo. Use 1 or 2, but 3 is abit overkill. At least put Death Pact Sig on one of them. I'd take Rising Bile off the human bar - the 20secs is abit too long for PvE and the target might be dead by then, or the aoe damage won't even do anything by the time it does trigger....Replace with Putrid Bile. Replace the Res too....the human player should be taking advantage of all 8 skills, not 7 + a res. Not sure about Rotting Flesh - I never liked it in PvE, but I also haven't tried it out for a Discord team build, so I can't really comment on it. A few people bash Discord in PvE for being single-target damage, but it's also in a line with plenty of aoe. The human bar can change to something else and bring more aoe if needed. The strength of high single-target damage is being able to kill specific threats alot easier in HM. P A R A S I T I C 07:35, 15 June 2008 (EDT)
^^What he said. Rotting Flesh is good though, as most PvE enemies aren't human, meaning no drawback. Plus it helps getting conditions on every, thus making Discord almost unconditional. But, in all honesty, Sab-way is much better.--Fallen (talk) 12:37, 15 June 2008 (EDT)
Indeed, as opposed to Dorks, oops, Droks who trolls vengeance in pvp builds in a time of heavy enchantment removal meta in pve the skill after it's buff would prove very helpful as it unconditionally resurrects with full health and energy preventing further dp also, it is good. As for enfeebling on the second nec indeed, I doubt heroes chaining this skill well infact you invest alot of points in curses for the sake of one skill having a curse necro elready. --Tiger Tiger's Fury Tigrr grrr!! 12:46, 15 June 2008 (EDT)
Discord teams arn't really comparable to "Sabway" (which really is just a compiled setup of old builds) in anyway, except that there's 3 necs. Sabway relies alot more on minions to do damage. It has almost no direct damage at all. SS is pretty bad on a hero since they'll rarely ever use it on the best targets. With Discord x3, you have pretty much enough damage to pick out any enemy from a mob and have it dead right there. P A R A S I T I C 17:10, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
Well, I run DB/MB on my sin, and coupled with Sab's stuff and physical henches, I clear mobs before Crit Agility recharges. That's really all I care about. I just don't see Discord having the same affect. I'm all for trying it when my account is unbanned, but I'm always going to abide by some variation of Sab's build.--Fallen (talk) 23:31, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

I'll give this variant a try soon, looks odd but who knows,could be just as effective or even better! Watch me work it 15:51, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

An x/A with Assassin's Promise should be just as good, or even better in some situations....Cry of Pain spam > mobs. An Assacaster could also fit the role and would still have it's 2ndary open. P A R A S I T I C 00:01, 20 June 2008 (EDT)
This really works out very well, you only need the first 3 skills and hero's will finish it, as for bosses, it still lasts long enough :), i'll give it a try with putrid explosion soon Smurf Minions 05:34, 21 June 2008 (EDT)
But Just use N/Rt healers, that works way better than healing prayer N/Mo. DiscordsigWatch me work it 12:44, 21 June 2008 (EDT)

Did anyone who rated it 0-1 actually tried it?

As i see, you guys think it's 'sabway' with discord as elite, it isn't as it's a normal minion bomber with 2 half n/rt healers from HA, nothing sab's on that. Smurf Minions 15:23, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

yeh people crying about single target damage < Aoe clearly haven't tried this.Watch me work it 15:53, 19 June 2008 (EDT)
The people complaining about single-target damage don't seem to know what Death Nova or Putrid Bile do. If you don't want minions, Putrid Explosion whoops pretty hard too. The people trying to compare this to Sabway have never stepped into HA. P A R A S I T I C 00:01, 20 June 2008 (EDT)


I've been trying some things with the Assassin's Promise variant and i figured out that his works the best:

Assassin&#039;s Promise &quot;Finish Him!&quot; &quot;You Move Like a Dwarf!&quot; Ebon Vanguard Assassin Support Enfeebling Blood Suffering Insidious Parasite Resurrection Signet
Discord Animate Bone Minions Death Nova Signet of Lost Souls Dwayna&#039;s Sorrow Aegis Protective Spirit Shield of Absorption
Discord Putrid Bile Rotting Flesh Protective Was Kaolai Spirit Light Signet of Lost Souls Life Flesh of My Flesh
Discord Putrid Bile Animate Shambling Horror Spirit Light Mend Body and Soul Signet of Lost Souls Recovery Flesh of My Flesh

The 3 curses spells on the main player are more a backup, you need only the first 4 skills, the rest is obvious :) Smurf Minions 04:17, 22 June 2008 (EDT)

Looks good, heroes know how to use Dwayna's Sorrow? DiscordsigWatch me work it 05:11, 22 June 2008 (EDT)
Yup, they use it on minions and when they go boom you get 20 health for each minion that was effected :) Smurf Minions 06:59, 22 June 2008 (EDT)

One Putrid Bile is enough imo. DiscordsigWatch me work it 07:30, 22 June 2008 (EDT)

You get more AoE with 2 putrids as it has 12 seconds recharge Smurf Minions 08:04, 22 June 2008 (EDT)
I suggest making this variant the main build, it's better in most situations, and though I don't agree entirely on the skills on the heroes, thats just detail. DiscordsigWatch me work it 13:53, 27 June 2008 (EDT)

Just did Ring of Fire HM with this build and it worked very well! I even wasn't infused and had no big problems :D 16:55, 25 October 2008 (EDT)

Yet another "Variant"

OKhere's what I've been using since... well it's been a long time. But anyway, it is way more aggressive than the build with the 2 N/rts (I don't know why there is 2 TBH but w/e).

Assassin&#039;s Promise &quot;Finish Him!&quot; Ebon Vanguard Assassin Support Mindbender Enfeebling Blood Putrid Bile Malign Intervention Resurrection Signet
Discord Animate Shambling Horror Verata&#039;s Gaze Blood of the Master Dwayna&#039;s Sorrow Malign Intervention Protective Spirit Vengeance
Discord Animate Shambling Horror Verata&#039;s Gaze Death Nova Malign Intervention Rip Enchantment Enfeeble Dwayna&#039;s Sorrow
Discord Life Mend Body and Soul Spirit Light Protective Was Kaolai Enfeebling Blood Foul Feast Flesh of My Flesh

Mind bender is optional really but I really like how fast things go with it. It can tank a lot, and even one of the MM's death isn't a critical mistake. Since most of the builds posted here seem to focus on fleshy areas, malign intervention is totally the way to go if you want a hex. You get a hex, 20% reduction, a minion for 5e, and if it dies, soul reaping. You can even cast assassin's promise at the end of a fight if you haven't on the last mob, just be carefull not to turn it ally then. Note that this build totally sucks in non fleshy area, and it was not designed for that anyway. I know, Vengeance, but it used to be a res sig so replace it if needed. I never use the res sig either so it could be replaced by whatever. 06:43, 2 July 2008 (EDT)

I stopped looking after seeing you had Vengeance... Godbox GodlyCompanion-cube 06:55, 2 July 2008 (EDT)
And thats why I said you could replace it by whatever res you want. 09:24, 2 July 2008 (EDT)
2 N/Rt is a win/win situation, killing isn't a problem so why not bring some more heals yeh?, and bring you move like a dwarf it's one of the best skills in-game especially if you can spam it every 3 sec orso. DiscordsigWatch me work it 06:17, 4 July 2008 (EDT)

Just keep the heroes the same and let the player choose his primary and secondary, make it more like a group of heroes kinda like sabway that vanquish anything, just get rid of the build that the player should use and add it in variants, cause i think it would be better if it wasnt a necro build, but a hero build, other wise you could just title this Build: N/any Discord Spam Team.--Fire 19px Tock herd yuo liek mudkipz. 18:46, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

Phantom Pain + Shatter delusions can be painfull too, and with that you still have alot of place for almost anything :), as i said, the player has alot of room for his own ideas, you probably don't even need to take something that synchronizes with the build, only need to call a target (though bringing up a hex+condition at a target + calling it works good) Smurf Minions 12:11, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

other professions

hey guys I use a paragon ALWAYS. I vanquish alot and do guardian, and im getting bored of sab-way and paraway. This build has been looking pretty interesting to me, but i dont want to waste money getting my heroes runes and equipment for the discord spam build because I am not sure how well it will work if I am running a paragon primary (always an imbagon). That any/N bar above will probably not work cause paragons dont have good energy management without shouts, so I was wondering if one of you might be able to post a paraogn build for me. ThanksKlomi 13:51, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

give your heroes some hexes like suffering and Parasitic bond so you only have to take care of the conditions, barbed spear could be good. DiscordsigWatch me work it 04:07, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Another Variant, Dervish/Necro Specifically

I love using this build with my Necro primary character, however my Dervish is whom I have worked the most on and wanted to use this build with said toon. And this is purely as an alternative to the */N Discord spammer above since I haven't finished Factions and couldn't be bothered to pay for an Elite Tome for Discord.

<pvxbig> [build prof=D/N myst=10+1 cur=12 scythe=8+1][Avatar of Lyssa][Enfeebling Blood][Weaken Armor][Shadow of Fear][Mindbender][Pain Inverter][Eternal Aura][Faithful Intervention][/build] </pvxbig>

So, I guess this variant (along with a +15 staff with 20% Ench / +30 depending on your choice of flavour) gives the derv an abundance of energy, and ability to recharge AoL quickly to keep up the mana count. That and enchants running out = more energy back and minor healing. And a bit more oomph to attacks if you decide to swap out to a Scythe when energy runs a bit dry. Just a thought. Sureshot 19:21, 8 August 2008 (EDT)

I recommend using withering aura. especially on a dervish powered by enchants. Bring mystic sweep then 05:26, 12 August 2008 (EDT)

would also sync with the ebon assassins Majikmajikmajik 22:45, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
The Ebon Sin has horrible AI - if you cast it on somethin that's adjacent to another enemy, the chances of it attacking your target are really really low. So it actually has bad synergy with MoP. I stopped using it cause of that. If you're playing as primary Nec, you can bring MoP yourself since it'll be recharged by AP. Without it, the 20sec recharge on it is pretty bad. Even worse on a hero. If you really wanna use it, just drop the Restor points from one of the necs and spec into Curses then add it along with Enfeebling Blood.

Animate shambling horrors??? Because even if you micro it, competing for bodies with the MM is a good thing, right? Variant at best.

If it is not for Paragons and Warriors please dont fake it and state that it is for ALL PROFESSIONS, otherwise do some energy calculations and convince us how all 3 10e PvE skills can work for my them.

if it's "you move like a dwarf" thats the nrg prob why not take "your all weaklings"? no dmg but it's a condition. now you don't going to tell me that my brother can't use this build with his para, "mister person who is going to coment me" ;)-- 12:55, 22 November 2008 (EST)

I've tried both with and without Assassin Support, and it makes a whole lotta difference. First off, it's a decent damage spike, often dealing ~80 damage even in HM. Second, it knock-locks the enemy--I've caught mesmers in HM mid-casting Cry of Frustration by chaining "You Move Like a Dwarf!" with Assassin Support. Third, it's an expendable ally--in HM, all the nukes are gonna come down as soon as someone's in the aggro bubble. If the assassin takes the heat, you have an expendable corpse, AND the assasin's taken hundreds of damage instead of a team member as all spikes concentrate on him. And finally, he body-blocks a bit, which can give you the few seconds which make the difference between life and death in HM. All in all, Assassin Support feels like the best choice all-around for the fourth slot. Ghostwheel 14:57, 6 January 2009 (EST)

Meekness > Shadow of Fear

Sure it has high energy cost and 17% sacrifice but it is "all foes in the area", with this amount of minnions and Soul Reaping the Necromancer will be sure to have enough energy. And this teambuild should be able to outheal the 17% sacrifice easily on its own. 05:25, 5 February 2009 (EST)

To be honest the only reasons i choose shadow of fear over meekness is because i usually ball enemies into groups where possible to kill a bit easier and faster plus it is cheaper in energy cost and a tad more spammable in areas with hex removal ;) T1Cybernetic 06:39, 5 February 2009 (EST)

Why should you worry about 5 more energy? It is a 3 necro build with a MM in it, duh. Meekness is better because it has a wider area which means no fear of hex removal. DarkSpirit 11:33, 17 February 2009 (EST)

I've seen it work, although it dies in like 1 second literally. Just enough time for the minions to march in and take aggro. Tbh, it's only really useful against heavy AoE. --User:Thc 14:15, 9 February 2009 (EST)
Those sins still soak aggro rather well it doesnt mean that everything would rush to attack them though. --Anonimous. D: 14:24, 9 February 2009 (EST)
If you cast it on the closest target, then yes, everything will attack it, since nothing else is in range. But it dies in literally 1 sec or less, so the usefulness is questionable --User:Thc 16:15, 9 February 2009 (EST)
It makes foes waste skills on useless targets. ---Chaos- 07:34, 10 February 2009 (EST)
That's true, I guess. --User:Thc 00:55, 12 February 2009 (EST)

Thc, lets assume that your ebon vanguard rank is 8 or above it is not hard to achieve when youre going for discord anyway. --Anonimous. D: 07:54, 10 February 2009 (EST)
Okay, done. Now say something useful? --User:Thc 00:55, 12 February 2009 (EST)

Mark of Death

Useful when taking on things in healer infested areas like Eastern Frontier and can be used as a cover hex for AP. Add it to variants?-- 17:09, 14 February 2009 (EST)

Broken Template

It seems that the Curse Resto template is broken. At least for me, can someone check/replace it with a good one?

not broken for me. here's the code for you: OAhkUoG4BGqTMzOgI2dDTpJ1+iB Fox007 User Fox007 sig 08:46, 15 February 2009 (EST)

revert war

just variant them both. in my personal opinion, enduring toxin sucks for mainbar, but I'll post here before I revert more... ---Chaos- 10:03, 15 February 2009 (EST)

Well, I agree with IP's thinking on Enduring Toxin actually. --Anonimous. D: 10:07, 15 February 2009 (EST)

stop being so fucking retarded

stop being that you just defend a position like retards, I made the last version of this discord now Im updating it for a newer one because its way better. Researching into discordway I have discovered that having another copy of bile and bone minions is redundant and two mms kept interfering with each other so it bad, new version has better defense, it has wow 12 resto and such also double shamblings for extremely fast exploiting which it was originally intended for. Enduring Toxin is fantastic against high hp mobs that might not get killed as fast and mark of death is godly with dw and has recieved positive feedback for everyone who used it so stfu and stop reverting.

You also defend a position like a retard, and you also revert. -- lyssan 10:11, 15 February 2009 (EST)
Thats how pvx works, nobody would care about evaluating edits by any unfamiliar user/IP I had same problems before. --Anonimous. D: 10:15, 15 February 2009 (EST)
How is enduring toxin mainbar? Barbs and MoP are both far superior against healers. ET is only decent if you have no other options... so it should be in optional, at best. -THC
Because people are being retarded. It's like "yay, degen!" in a team relying on strong damage spam. ---Chaos- 14:38, 15 February 2009 (EST)

Stop trolling with enduring toxin

It is 4 degen. It is not good. Stop --User:Thc 12:19, 18 February 2009 (EST)

lol, think it's for the degen? --The preceding trolling attempt was made by Chaos (talk) . 12:33, 18 February 2009 (EST)
Leave it optional. Chaos, you don't need a cover hex because you don't cast AP until the enemy is right at 1/2 health, and then you use Finish Him and it's over. Cover hexes are fucking retarded on this build. If some people are too stupid to figure out when to use AP, then leave it in the variants, but imo it's a pointless addition.

When I run this my heroes use different bars, so what I said above is invalid. Although, I still think it should be left optional. Adorably shocked mcmonkey sig (13:00, 18 February 2009 - )
Is what I did, but Anon RV1'd it. --The preceding trolling attempt was made by Chaos (talk) . 13:02, 18 February 2009 (EST)
No I don't think it's for degen. It's a cover hex, but there are obv better cover hexes available, such as barbs/MoP if you're a necro. Thus, optional--User:Thc 18:20, 18 February 2009 (EST)
I personally dont perfer enduring toxin, but a 1/4 cast hex, with a quick recharge is always nice. --Drah Drah-Sig1 18:47, 18 February 2009 (EST)
Thats same reason I liked that idea. Maybe it should be kept optional because Mesmers posess better options for same purpose.
If you realise that ET is not for degen why are you suggesting MoP/Barbs for cover hexes? --Anonimous. D: 19:11, 18 February 2009 (EST)
becase those are some useful skills? --The preceding trolling attempt was made by Chaos (talk) . 05:50, 19 February 2009 (EST)
MoP/Barbs are useless as cover hexes, long casting time. --Anonimous. D: 05:51, 19 February 2009 (EST)
Any cover hex that casts in one second or less is alright. --The preceding trolling attempt was made by Chaos (talk) . 06:30, 19 February 2009 (EST)
PI is a half decent cover hex >.> And somewhat useful. Goodnight la sig 2 00:37, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

You're right, barbs is not a cover hex, but I meant it's a hex that prevents AP from being removed (e.g., you cast barbs first). ET is not a good hex and definitely not main bar material. Here's why:
1) Has an irrelevant effect and has no guarantee of lasting more than 5 seconds.
2) Hex removal is not enough vs. smart play.
2) The only time a cover hex is needed is vs. multiple healers. In the case of multiple healers, you want more damage. Barbs provides the equivalent of something 40+ degen. For damage purposes, the choice is clear.
3) Vs. a single healer with hex removal, hex removal is irrelevant. You simply knocklock it and kill it.
4) Vs. high HP opponents, AP becomes less important than DPS. Barbs lets you DPS, speeding along play. -- 04:45, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
