Diablo 3 Necromancer Lore

Necromancers are the ones who balance between life and death. They can make benefits for them by reviving the corpse and cursing enemies. Necromancers fight from far with the help of allies they create for themselves with the dark forces.

All who oppose me…beware.

Necromancers are also referred to as The Priests of Rathma. They live with a strong believe that Sanctuary is effected by the eternal struggle between light and darkness which will never end. Even though they try to bring balance to the world.

Want not, waste not is the way Necromancer calling on Essence (energy harvested from living and dead beings), summoning the fading life force of corpses.
