This Build was not favored by the PvX community.

This build focuses around the heavy degeneration condition Burning. This is done by heavy use of Mark Rodgort and Conjure Flame combination. Uses a "They're on Fire!" Paragon for mitigation and IMS, and a Weapons Master for increased damage and further party buffing. The 2 heavy damage dealers on the team are the Conjure Dervish, and the Conjure WoTA, with 2 Smaller Heavies, the Paragon and The Daze and Burn Ranger. The team Necromancer makes healers angry with Soul Bind and rips up standard defenses with Defile Defenses and Anti-Enchantment skills. The Necromancer can also shoot down Frontliners with empathy, and make everyone mad with plenty of hexes.

"ToF" Paragon

Primary party buffer through "They're on Fire!" and "Watch Yourself!", and due to the overabundance of Mark of Rodgort, burning should be consistantly spread throughout enemy lines, thus having "They're on Fire!" is the best mitigation skill around. Also has the party's IMS and massive crippling skill Crippling Anthem, as well as the anti-interrupt, Song of Concentration.
