Tanky Team Support, Minions optional

You only need 2 Forma for this build...
...however, there's room for variations.

Many Nekros players use Shield of Shadows in their builds to add more tankiness - which requires you to keep up your minions permanently. I prefer being tanky without having undead things around me all the time, occasionally blocking shots and vision. :)

This is how it works:

  • Since you usually bring Nekros for the extra loot, you'll want tons of range, so even that random Valkyr player one hall away from you will generate extra loot.
  • Despoil + Equilibrium have proven themselves to be an amazing combo to ensure health and energy sustain...
  • ...and since Despoil enables you to pick up health blobs all the time, Health Conversion will reliably buff up your armor value.
  • Enemy spawn mechanics are somewhat tricky in this game. If you are in a survival mission and want to kill and loot as many enemies as possible, grab Enemy Radar. (And add Animal Instinct to your pet/sentinel.)

Here's where the extra Forma comes into play:

If you actually do want to summon your undead army, you could replace Overextended/Augur Reach with Shield of Shadows/(Umbral) Intensify.

Arcanes:

  • Guardian, Grace, Aegis, or Barrier can add that extra chunk of survivability.
  • Pulse provides a chance to replenish additional health for you and nearby allies whenever a Health Orb is picked up.

There's always some more potential to further minmax, but I like this build and its moderate amount of polarized slots, leaving room for variations and alternative configs.
