Things That Go Bump In the Night, Or the Necromancer

Creepy dead things. That describes the Necromancer, or just the Necro, to a tea. The master of the undead, raising the bones of old, all the while draining the life from the enemy. So let’s see what we can dig up on our grave robbing friends.
Root Ability
Summon Skeletal Horror 0 pts: Summons a skeleton to fight for you. This is your first DPS pet.
Revivify 4 pts: Channels energy in to your pet, restoring 10% of its health every second for 8 seconds. Consumes charge. Your basic ZOMG FLUFFYS GONNA DIE!!! Heal spell.
Essence Link 10 pts; Reduces healing on target by 30% for 60 seconds. When your pet hits do damage, you are healed for 9. Yet another ability to keep us alive through our pets.
Summon Skeletal Stalwart 12 pts: Summons a skeletal warrior to fight for you. This is your basic tanking pet.
Exhume 16 pts: Reduces the casting time of your next summon by 15 seconds. This is our instapet ability.
Summon Shadow Revenant 26 pts: Summons an undead Mage to your aid. This is another DPS for us, this time we get a caster.
Death’s Grip 32 pts: Stuns the enemy for 3 seconds. For the next 60 seconds when your pet damages them, their speed is reduced 30% for 3 seconds. Good for making a fast get away in PvP.
Mass Grave 51 pts: Summons an uncontrollable level 50 zealot and revenant for 30 seconds. Lots of high DPS pets running amuck killing for you.
Getting to the Roots
Most if our root abilities are summoning abilities, or deal with healing us or Fluffy. Picking the right pet at the right time can make all the difference in the world. Exhume can help you switch out from one to another on the fly as needed.
Branch Abilities
Death’s Ally T1 5/5: Increases yours and you pet’s death based damage by 5%. A flat out boost to DPS plain and simple.
Fresh Graves T2 5/5: Increases Soul Rend’s damage by 25% per stack of Deathly Calling. Grave Touch reduces damage to pet by 10% for 10 seconds, and has a 100% chance to deal 50% more if target has Necrosis. Yet another ability that will boost our pet’s DPS.
Symbiote T3 5/5: Increases healing from Essence Link by 30%. More self healing for us, means less our healers have to worry about us.
Life Bane T4 5/5: Increases pet’s damage by 2% per point in the Necromancer tree. The more points we put in this tree, the more damage our pet does.
Detonate Bone T4 3/3: When your pet dies, it has a 100% chance to explode stunning nearby enemies for 2 seconds and dealing damage equal to 10% of the pet’s health. Fluffy becomes a suicide bomber. The more HP Fluffy has, the bigger the bang.
Soul Purge T4 1/1: Channels deadly into the enemy doing 431 damage over 8 seconds, and heals you and your pet for 593 health. Consumes charge. Yet another way to help your healer, by keeping you and Fluffy alive.
Ancient Tomb T5 1/1: Summon an undead rogue. He’s a DPS pet plain and simple.
Master Chirurgen T5 5/5: Increase pet’s health by 50%. More health means Fluffy stays around.
Vengeful Spirit T6 3/3: Increases the number of stacks of Deathly Calling converted by pet’s Blood Corruption by 3, and gives BC a 100% chance to not consume stacks of DC. Oblivion has a 100% to interrupt to spell casting. Ruination’s damage is increased by 9% per stack of DC. More damage and utility for your pet.
Clattering Bones T6 1/1: Bone Shatter reduces pet’s incoming damage by 6%. Blood Spike’s critical damage is increased by 150%, and increases cool down reduction by 1.5 seconds. Even more pet DPS and utility for Fluffy.
Lich Form T7 1/1: Turns you in to a Lich for 30 seconds. Increases your mana regeneration by 20%, damage by 20%, and pet’s damage by 30%. The final form. We become an undead ourselves.
Pulling it all together
DPS, DPS, and more DPS. Our branch ability are all about boosting both ours and our pet’s health and DPS. Everywhere you look in our tree you’ll find talent after talent to boost our health and damage output. All of our talents work together. Master Chirurgen is a huge boost to Detonate Bone. Everything works together to boost other abilities. So until next time don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.
