Attributes and Skills

Optional Slot

  • Shameful Fear Shameful Fear - Faster carrier kills, trigger for Toxic Chill, but long casting time
  • Parasitic Bond Parasitic Bond - Self heal and trigger for Toxic Chill
  • Consume Corpse Consume Corpse - Self heal and energy gain, with shadow step

Variants[edit | edit source]

  • Viper's Defense Viper's Defense instead of Heart of Shadow Heart of Shadow for more frequent shadow stepping

Equipment

  • Tormentor's insignias
  • 40/40 Death Magic set
  • 40/40 Curses set
  • High energy Death Magic set
  • Defensive sets (+10 vs Lightning and Fire especially)

Usage

  • Cast Rotting Flesh -> Suffering on the middle npc to nuke shrines. Do not aggro while casting Rotting Flesh. Run from the shrine after casting Suffering, and move to the next target.
  • Use Heart of the Shadow often to get around the map quickly and nuke safely from above.
  • Use Enduring Toxin, Toxic Chill and Signet of Toxic Shock to kill carriers or pressure foes/finish off weakened shrines if needed.
    • On carriers Enduring Toxin will last forever barring removal, so you may not want to cast it on a carrier if it would be advantageous for its team to let it die and respawn at the quarry with a slab when they capture it.

Counters

  • Anti caster
  • Condition and Hex removal
  • Interruption

Notes

  • The Rotting Flesh -> Suffering combo kills slowly, so there is more time for an enemy healer to intervene. Theoretically, this is countered by the pressure created with the small 10 second downtime between nukes.
