Terrify - This ability will create fear in the heart of enemies. The enemies who are affected will be unable to use their abilities and run away in fear. Sometimes it makes them vulnerable to attacks, with reduced armor. You can also recast this ability while active and will refresh its duration.
Desecrate - It allows Nekros to create an aura around him that has turns enemy corpses into extra loots. It could be anything that is a part of the enemy’s loot table. When this ability is active, it will use the energy from each corpse consumed. Until you have sufficient energy, you can activate this ability else it gets deactivated.
Shadows of the Dead - This is the ultimate ability of Nekros. Using this ability Nekros can create several shadow copies of enemies that he killed recently, prioritizing the strongest. These shadow copies will get bonus damage, health, and shields and act as they have life. Each shadow will lose some energy or health every second when they are active. When you cast this ability again will refresh each shadow’s shields and health and will summon them to stand by Nekros side. You can summon more Shadows until the maximum shadow capacity is reached.

SHADOWS OF THE DEAD
The Main Nekros Build
Desecrate, the third ability of Nekros offers you another opportunity to loot when an enemy is killed. You need to channel your ability and dissolve the corpses around you using your energy. Doing this will get you chances of getting another drop. The drops include, from energy, health to more credits and mods or resources (like Endo, Life Support, Power Cells) that the specific drops. Creating a Nekros Build will be easy because even without all the corrupted mods you can still get a decent build. Make sure to equip with mods that provide you as much as range, efficiency, and survivability. Adding some duration and strength will help you to cast shadows of the Death ability and to block attacks. This Nekros Build is suitable for high-density missions like defense, excavation, survival, as it will allow you to kill a huge number of enemies in a short time and to get the maximum amount of resources.
The Solo Farmer Build
Using the Main Nekros Build will not be efficient if you don’t find Trinity or to farm some extra resources and credits. This is where the Solo Farmer Nekros Build helps you. This build is created around the augmented mod Despoil; it will allow you to use your health pool as a resource instead of energy pool. You might get a question that why should we do this. If you think so here is the answer. Mostly we will prefer Rejuvenation, which is a better energy source when compared to Energy Siphon. Secondly, you can find health orb easily when compared to energy orbs. It is because of your Desecrate which helps to have a lot of health orbs on the ground. This build quite similar to your main Nekros Build, but you have to sacrifice some of the duration and strength ability to get a more stable build.
The Shield of Shadows Nekros Build
This build focuses on your fourth ability Shadow of Death which will revive up to seven enemies from the dead, fighting for you until they die again. Add as much as duration and strength ability to your Nekros build and combine it with Vitality to achieve more survival. The Shield of Shadows, will redirect some damage and make you look tanky. Coacation drift mod boosts Rejuvenation which heals you and your shadows.
Nekros, suited in a good team environment where he will be playing the essential role in farming Warframes. For every resource group you need one Nekros, hence getting Nekros at the sooner is an essential one. The solo farmer Nekros Build will be a good option, but farming Orokin Derelict Assassination alone is not that easy. Try to get some help from the recruitment chat or find a good gild.
