Players who love to use Necromancer Shadow Builds tend to use Sever as their Core Skill and this can often lead to builds that have a good Critical Strike Chance.
To improve such builds further, you can make use of the Aspect of Empowering Reaper, which gives a chance for Sever’s Critical Strikes to cause a pool of Blight to be spawned.
The pool of Blight spawned by Sever will deal an additional percentage of damage to enemies who are unlucky enough to stand in it.
Aspect of Empowering Reaper Effects (Sever Aspect)
The Aspect of Empowering Reaper provides your Sever Skill with a chance to spawn a pool of Blight by a certain chance percentage.
This will spawn under an enemy that you have dealt a Critical Strike to and the pool of Blight will deal an additional amount of damage based on a certain percent of its normal damage.
A pool of Blight caused by Sever’s Critical Strike may only trigger once every 3 seconds before another one can be spawned again.
Aspect of Empowering Reaper Location
The Aspect of Empowering Reaper is unlocked by completing the Flooded Depths Dungeon, which can be found in Hope’s Light.
Hope’s Light will need to be unlocked first by completing the Stronghold Event, which requires you complete certain objectives.
How To Get Aspect of Empowering Reaper? (Flooded Depths Walkthrough)
Within the Flooded Depths, you will be fighting your way through the Keeper’s Quarters until you find your way into the Compromised Oilstores.
- Slay the Plague Ship Rower
- Activate the Gate Release
- Travel to the Compromised Oilstores
- Destroy the Drowned Bell (3)
Destroying all 3 of the Drowned Bells in the Compromised Oilstores will complete the Flooded Depths Dungeon.
Aspect of Empowering Reaper is a great way to deal bonus damage in an area but there are more benefits to this, especially with Necromancer Shadow Builds.
Shadow Damage and Blight along with other passives and Aspects can be extremely beneficial for a Necromancer, providing more ways to hurt enemies.
With the many passives that synergize with each other, the ability to spawn a pool of Blight can be a great way to take out groups of enemies.
