Usage

Use this to farm for resources or if you just need a survivable platform. It is designed to give you as much +armor as possible because percentage armor increases are so inefficient on Nekros. Beyond that, it stacks hp and extends range for maximum despoil desecration. Methods of healing are recommended. I suggest mediray, Magus repair, or a life steal weapon like Wings of Purity Furis

Variation

One variation I use has Equilibrium instead of Augur Reach to help keep you topped off.
Some people seem to like using Shield of shadows but I really dislike it for several reasons:
First, the damage resist on shield of shadows in ability strength dependent but modding for strength is basically useless for the rest of Nekros' kit. The same can be said for modding for ability duration(which reduces the health drain on shadows, effectively extending their life). If you are modding for either of these then you are using up mod slots without increasing health or range. Reality is, none of nekros' abilities are really good enough to justify modding with a view towards abilities, especially when you are as squishy as nekros.
Second, Spawning your own units both creates visual clutter that I just find gets in the way of killing things and reduces the number of enemies that can spawn which is almost always a bad thing(nekros is all about killing and looting) unless you're trying to do some sort of cheese interception strategy where you intentionally lower the unit cap.
Third, Shadows encourages you to stand still which essentially never necessary and is often counter productive.
Fourth, The cast time is GLACIAL.

In sum, don't use this ability.

Counters

Nullifiers are an annoyance as are sources of massive burst damage like Corpus Techs.
