This build has been designed for the following use:

This build is a compilation of 7 heroes: 6 that are rated as great on this wiki, and 1 that is player made but not submitted. The idea behind the team is that you will be able to play any class, and still clear virtually all hardmode content. I've personally used it to clear SE fully on HM, plus multiple other EotN hard mode dungeons, Vanquishing all over the world, and HM mission clears.

SoLS Necro Healer 1

Template code

This build is designed for massive healing and survivability on the Heroes part. As such it it not recommended to change any skills here

  • However if you wish to remove a skill: Enfeebling Blood.jpg Enfeebling Blood is your best option. If you choose to do so, you can also bring Soul Reaping up to 14. Keep in mind Enfeebling Blood is a great Melee shutdown skill

Equipment

  • +1 Soul Reaper in the Helmet, Full Survivors Insignia/Vitae Runes/Rune of Vigor
  • 40/40 Restoration set


SoLS Necro Healer 2

Template code
 save


This build is designed for massive healing and Energy regen to the entire party. It is not recommended to change any skills

  • However if you wish to remove a skill: Blood Bond.jpg Blood Bond is your best option. I'd recommend replacing with Order of Pain.jpg Order of Pain. Order of Pain is useful when running a melee player or when you intend on keeping minions alive longer
  • Alternatively you can utilize Strip Enchantment.jpg Strip Enchantment for harassing enemies

Equipment

  • +1 Soul Reaper in the Helmet, Full Undertaker's Insignia/Vitae Runes/Rune of Vigor
  • 40/40 Restoration set


Minion Master

Template code
 save


This build is designed for massive damage through making and exploding minions. It is not recommended to change any skills

  • However if you wish to remove a skill: Death Nova.jpg Death Nova is your best option. If you choose to do so, you will be missing out on large amounts of AoE damage, but you will also keep survivability of minions. I'd recommend changing it to another minion making skill and Possibly taking Animate Flesh Golem.jpg Animate Flesh Golem
  • Also note that removing Death Nova will dramatically reduce the effectiveness of your Soul Twisting Rit as your minions will use up charges from the spirits

Equipment

  • +3 Death Magic in the Helmet, +1 Soul Reaping, 1 Bloodstained and 4 Minion Master Insignia/Vitae Runes/Rune of Vigor
  • A full defensive set (Consists of a Spear of Enchanting With +5 Energy and a Shield with -5/20% and +30 HP)


Soul Twisting Rit

12 + 1 + 3
12 + 2
Template code
 save


This build is designed for protecting the group from damage, thus alleviating the work the healers have to do. It is not recommended to change any skills

  • Keep in mind that if you removed Death Nova from your Minion Master, keeping Minions alive will take a much bigger toll on the Soul Twister, dramatically reducing its effectiveness.

Equipment

  • +3 Communing in the Helmet, +2 Spawning Power, Full Shaman's Insignia/Vitae Runes/Rune of Vigor
  • A full defensive set (Consists of a Spear of Enchanting With +5 Energy and a Shield with -5/20% and +30 HP)


Energy Surge Mesmer

Template code
 save


This build is designed for massive damage and abusing the AI's interrupt ability, I do not recommend changing any skills. Shatter Hex is extremely vital in virtually all HM environments.

  • However if you wish to remove a skill: Cry of Frustration.jpg Cry of Frustration is your best option. You can replace with a Domination Skill that is effective on non-grouped enemies (As Cry of Frustration is useful on grouped)

Equipment

  • +2 Domination Magic in the Helmet, +1 Fast Casting, +1 Inspiration, Full Survivor Insignia/Vitae Runes/Rune of Vigor
  • 40/40 Domination Set


Panic Mesmer

This build is designed for massive damage and abusing the AI's interrupt ability, I do not recommend changing any skills. Shatter Hex is extremely vital in virtually all HM environments.

  • However if you wish to remove a skill: Wastrel's Worry.jpg Wastrel's Worry is your best option. You can replace with a Domination Skill that is effective on non-grouped enemies (As Wastrel's Worry is useful on grouped)

Equipment

  • +2 Domination Magic in the Helmet, +1 Fast Casting, +1 Inspiration, Full Survivor Insignia/Vitae Runes/Rune of Vigor
  • 40/40 Domination Set


Earth Defense Ele

Template code
 save


This build is designed for assisting with protection and damage in the group. If you wish to remove a skill:

  • Magnetic Aura.jpg Magnetic Aura is useful against melee groups, If you are going to be facing ranged groups you can utilize Swirling Aura.jpg Swirling Aura instead (You will not need more than the 3 points in Water Magic+

Equipment

+3 Earth Magic in the Helmet, +1 Energy Storage, Full Survivor Insignia/Vitae Runes/Rune of Vigor 40/40 Earth Magic set

Usage

These heroes take full advantage of the AI. Other than flagging heroes to optimize position there is no needed Micro management

Counters

  • Heavy AoE interrupts
  • Limited Revival (I.E. most heroes do not have a revival skill as you ideally won't be dying)

Variants

Replacing the Earth Ele with an SoS spammer or another Mesmer

Notes

Personally I always bring along Consets, Honeycombs, and sometimes Scrolls of Resurrection to further assure my success

The Earth Ele used in this team comes courtesy of Mira Phantasm
