Making Death Look Cool


When it comes to summoning and controlling the dead, the EverQuest II
Necromancer class has it down to a ghastly science!  This
formidable pet class has long been a favorite for soloers, but many
will sometimes forget how useful they are in groups and raids as
well!  Have you always considered playing one?  With
a fully updated Necromancer guide, there is no time like the present to
roll an alt and get to know this master of the dead!

Why choose necromancer?

You're not a back row root-and-nuke specialist like most mages, you're
not a damage-absorbing "tank," and certainly not a healer (except to
your pet). You wield the dead as weapons (pets), and specialize in
reducing your enemies' health slowly over time by a variety of means,
most insidiously the lifetap -- the conversion of some of the damage
you cause your opponent into power for you.
