I've hosted this on the DA Forums to prevent Furro from editing it and subbing in Combust bones for every spell slot

1HB? The only primary a necro should ever equip is Epic.

Even before the advent of Death Bloom it's been pretty much impossible to go OOM as a Necro, so I wouldn't really endorse the idea of using spec augs or mana augs in general at all (HSta > HInt by a mile)

Correction on the Burn section, No idea why I couldn't see that it was stacking when I tested last week (36k to 38k might've fooled my drunken eyes *Nod*) but Messing around right now and it appears Glyph is indeed stacking with Spire/EC (loaded up the chanty and it's stacking with IoG aswell), So I'd once again recommend it's usage within the primary Burn.

Should have a revision for the Proc aug section shortly too (Overall rate and breakdowns)

Cleaned it up a bit, added 2 swarm pet toys, the new Symp Proc rate breakdown and a link to some alternate spellsets for Add based events/PoWar

Going to leave it at that until TBM releases and then update with that stuff and expand on some stuff I laz'd out on

Just make sure I don't rewatch Clannad in the meantime /cry

It's been a week almost since TBM release, where's the TBM update? /em ducks!

In your pet section of the guide, please include something about necro pets; how to control aggro and preventing Team Tank from killing a kitten in real-life.  This has been asked of in other guide request posts as well with respect to Magician and Beastlord pets.  Pet aggro on raids is brutal without monitoring, in fact, even Enchanters I believe have a type of AA pet that has huge aggro.  Oh, and Rogues have an AA pet, not sure if it still has the aggro it had during CoTF.

I can think of 3 different ways to reduce agro on necro pets.

/pet feign, Summon Companion AA, and Calm Demeanor AA.

The biggest thing is just toggling off pet taunt, there's really no reason a pet should be anywhere near the top of agro outside of the Tanks all getting slaughtered

Ps. Should have time to do a Guide update once I'm out in Regina, as long as my coworkers don't want to go out for dinner every night

Something to note if you have Hand of Death repop and don't have Lifeburn up yet. Self-Sacrifice will work, but if you have Deadskin (or another rune), or Gift of the Grave, or Shield of Consequence, the damage won't be enough to make HoD work. Recommend making a hotkey to block these temporarily, or make hotkey where it blocks these and fires the Self-Sac, then a second hotkey to unblock so you can get your buffs back up.

Alrighty, I stopped being lazy and updated for TBM, nothing really changed for Necros, the only real DPS boost was in the form of a new innate pet crit dmg line. Added 1 more AA explanation (Gift of Deathly Resolve)

Don't quite feel the need to add an alternate spell set for damsel of decay but can if you guys want, could also do something in the vein of a prioritized AA list if there's interest, Don't be afraid to ask!

With HoD update, self-sacrifice is now completely useless.
