Useful Info

Necromancers are evil casters of Necromancy and Conjurations, often found surrounded by derived undead minions. They usually appear in the Crypt, the deeper portion of the Dungeon, or in one particular Ice Cave ending along with an army of simulacra.

Tips & Tricks

  • High magic resistance or a single rank of negative energy resistance will negate their Agony spell. While Necromancy might be their obvious strong suit, don't underestimate the punch of their various Bolt spells.
  • Try not to create any high-level corpses around them; they can animate a dead unique just as easily as you.
