Hello! So, I have been playing a Malice Necro for about a week now, and I havesome questions. I tried on Discord, but no answer.
First a bit about my build:
Lvl 73(right now)
20 Dead Ripple(Will max but was scared of mana cost)
Max Nightcrawler
10 Dream Eater(No cooldown)
3 Meditation
1 Terror
1 Occult Pact
18 unused skill points


My damage is really good, but I feel a little too squishy. My res are at 75(0 physical res). So, is it worth putting points in Death Ward, or Tenacity, to try to increase my survivability? Also, is Death Pact worth maxing?

Thanks!

Death Pact is good and you should put some points in it. I ignored Death Ward, felt like the investment wasnt worth it. Death Ripple mana cost is not soemthing to worry about. Dream Eater mana cost can get crazy at higher levels but high mana regen can offset it easily.

Veil King is the man, and as long as you make sure he tanks you dont need alot of defenses besides resists and life. Resurgence for 50% minion avoid is amazing - dont overlook that. Occult Pact is really good at dealing with packs advancing you and Dream Eater sustain is great.

Oh thanks so much! Was wondering about Veil King too, I'll get it when I'm 90 then. I'll keep Dream Eater at 10 for now, until I can upgrade my gear. Do you recommend maxing Veil King and Resurgence?

Yeah, Resurgence is crucial in Veil King survivability

does anyone know why the set shield is at a lvl 115 requirement? given the Twisted Mind rw being lvl 110 and the rest of the set being 90, i'm guessing this wasn't intended? or am i missing something?

Is this kind of build still viable? It's not been updated since 1.4, and I don't see any other posts mentioning malice necro
