take dhuumfire over death perception in soul reaping ( IX over VIII )
over foot in the grave (VII over VIII) they will be so much more useful.

Possible / suggested trait variations:
Curses - VII over IX
Death Magic - IX over VII ( against burst heavy comps) ; II over III ( against condition heavy comps )
Soul Reaping - VII over VIII ; IX over VIII ; I over II ( only if you choose IX over VIII, both are great traits)

Sigil variants :
scepter - tormenting sigil over earth sigil, bursting sigil over doom sigil
tormenting sigil over bursting sigil, generosity sigil over bursting sigil.

Also skill variants, spectral walk over summon flesh wurm and plague over flesh golem ( much, MUCH stronger outside of 1v1s because the flesh wurm dies in under 2s most of the time).

Flesh golem*

thnx Sadrien for the suggestion, i thought about it and did some changes based on what you posted earlier, i took dhuumfire over death perception since this build damage main damage is condi might as well add some more condi then, shrouded removal as you suggested i considered it replacing putrid defense since condi removal in pvp is much more essential, and about soul marks i think i'm gonna stick on that so my reaper's mark will be unblockable, i need all fear to count since primarily my damage comes from fear and also i'm leaving lingering curse also behind since bleed also plays a major part on my dps, about the sigils i'm so going to follow that, great choice of sigil really works well with fear, btw i chose summon flesh wurm over spectral walk because i find the wurm more convient to use as a escape goat, i just place the wurm far away from the battle, and bout the golem i totally forgot to replace that i'm really going for plague form also.

Occasionally flesh worm will work, but in Spvp I find it much more useful to have spectral walk and juke people with ledges in combat over leaving engagement entirely.
