I think shapeshifter is more for an end-game tanking, mostly labbing. Exemplar and Fighter Mage provide a bit of extra dmg (through Colosseum and Chronofield) and much more crowd control. But you should really just test out what suits you, mercs lvl so quickly so there is no downside to switch around.

Shapeshifter if you feel you need another tank (or aren't using VK), otherwise I would recommend Necrolyte for the debuff. It helps alot for both your survivability as well as his and VKs.

As this guide hasn't been updated in a while, has there been any updates to the build or experience people can share? I'm running a Malice Necro now and wondering its end game potential for labs (I saw the video of the Samael kill but want to see if there is other content out there).

Same here. I'm in mid game with some set and crafting items. The issue is the low defense (lowest in the necro builds). I think some SSU and xis runewords are the "must" items ('cause you need to fill the physical res with items too).

Hey all, I know it's late in the season and this thread is pretty dead but I've been having an excellent time w/ Malicemancer. Got Uldyssian down a few days ago, farming my way up through labs and working on Void now. I need to boost my PR a little but I've got some ideas for that, the character seems really strong once it gets going with endgame gear/full sigs/good MO/jewels. Not the fastest farmer but the single-target damage gets really nutty with Bane and Dream Eater is really powerful sustain.

Yeah I was thinking the same. Is it a viable build to play after 2.0?

With the new 2.0 update, I noticed there is a new runeword Necro shield - Twisted Mind. +1 to Bone Ripple projectile and up to %40 MF. Seems like a great farming item. Hoping to get it soon and try it out.

And yeah, malice necro plays well in 2.0 so far. I can comfortably farm dunc and teganze in mostly T4 gear. If I could just get my hands on a Black Masquerade...

That malice skill that auto kills enemies if they are nightmared, confuse cursed and poisoned... seems kinda bad :)

I actually play with melee necro (2 handed). But I think for some ubers I will respec for malice. In the old patch it was awesome for farming Astrogha trophy. Have a nice game!!
