      Never really used it because I just killed everything before it got a turn and now I read that it's applicable with shackles of pain.

        Okay so there’s a really cool loop you can create with all
        Party members having this spell, living on the edge, and skin graft.

        So every time someone dies, ALL their CD’s get reset, including ones you can only use once in combat.

        So in say, maybe the hardest fight, you can use living on the edge, last rites to revive a party member, and living on the edge again on them.

        They can then use living on the edge after that expires, last rites, and living on the edge on the newly raised player….

        You see where I’m going with this?

          At first I thought this skill was stupid but if you combine it with shackles of pain it can be pretty awesome.

            Yet another way to completely break the game: Have two guys alternately kill themselves to resurrect the other. It resets all cooldowns, including spells that you can cast only once per combat like this one. While you do that at the end of a turn, the turn will never end while it's never gonna be anyone else's turn.

              Does this require a target? Say, I'm alone and don't have a target to resurrect, can I still cast it on myself to combo with shackles of pain and living on the edge?

                Have one of your party members dead. Be a buffed up necromancer with large health pool. Use Shackles of Pain on your target, then Living on edge on yourself. Next turn resurrect fallen comrade with Last Rites, dealing your full health worth of unblockable damage to self and enemy. You survive, they don't.

                  It deals damage equal to your vitality and armours so you can survive if you have Living on the Edge. It's NOT a /kill skill.

                    Showed up at Necro venders once I hit level 16, it does not instant kill the caster so it can be used out of combat freely. Last rites does prevent death if using it in combat.

                      hi, so wondering if this will work with shackles of pain and living on edge skills??? as well as something like comback kid, unstable, and i don't even know if comback kid and morning person would work together but i imagine this could be a huge burst build.
