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).
