Important Info for Magicka Necromancer Healer Build PvE

Buff-food

Ideally you want to use the Clockwork Citrus Filet as it provides you with a little bit extra Magicka and Health. However, that food is quite expensive, the other option is Witchmother’s Potent Brew that has similar stats.

Blackrose Prison Arena

This section of the build is dedicated to the Blackrose Prison Arena, it is a bit different compared to the usual Trial and Dungeon setup due to how the Arena works and because you fight such a huge amount of enemies each wave.

  • Alternative Gear Setups
  • Skill Setup

Gear Setup

As a healer it is quite tricky in Blackrose Prison. There is a few good sets that I can recommend. I would always slot Olorime because of Major Courage in combination with Earthgore which heals for a lot when you are in a tough situation. As a second five piece set you have some options. If you are new in the Arena Kagrenac's Hope is a really good option so you can res your buddies faster. Sanctuary is also nice because it boosts the heals of everyone. A more advanced set would be the Infallible Mage where you also focus on keeping up the Minor Vulnerability debuff on big enemies to increase the overall damage.
