There are seven classes in Diablo 3. Here you will learn everything you need to know about Diablo 3 Necromancer. We will share information about the main features of this class, equipment (including sets) and also write the list of the best Diablo 3 Necromancer builds.
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.
As a Commander of Dead Necromancer can summon troops of skeletons warriors and mages, golems and other awakened corpses to attack his enemies. By command, they will attack at once with a significant strike. 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.
Also, Necromancer can take control of other creatures and use crowd control skills. In addition, combining it with curses. Moreover, there is a way to overcome your enemies with massive corpse destruction. Once you kill some mobs you can instantly use their bodies and explode them to clean your way through the numerous packs of monsters.
Necromancers prefer to use Scythes. A unique type of one-handed weapon that only necromancers can use. In the other hand Necromancers hold Phylactery – off-hand that manipulate the flow of Essence.
But you can also choose to use a two-handed Scythe if essence flow is not your main target.

Since early childhood, I was fond of gaming. I played Doom 2, Red alert 2 (with all possible DLCs) and, of course, The Sims. I grew up but my passion didn't go away. So now I am writing about the stuff I love the most: video games!
