Guild Wars 2 Necromancer Class Detailed
Guild Wars 2 brings back the Necromancer class from the first game with some interesting twists. Players used to playing the pet-centric Necromancer can look forward to more gruesome magical undead minions but there seems to be a bit more this time out. The necromancer has some new abilities like area control through “Wells” and “Marks” as well as “fear” based attacks to break enemy morale.
As indicated in the earlier news about Guild Wars 2, all classes have some solo healing power now, so the Blood Fiend summon allows the dread Necro to summon a minion that heals when it attacks.
Guild Wars 2 continues to show some interesting improvements over its predecessor. With a persistent shared world and more traditional overworld while maintinaing Guild Wars strengths like a one-time purchase, no subscription sales model. You can read all the gory details over at the Guild Wars 2 website.
