Necromancer has, my entire life, been my favourite class in RPGs. Few games these days have them, and whenever a game releases with one I always try it.
I spent a little time (Under an hour) trying a necromancer out during the tests. I was not a fan of the first pet they start with. I MUCH prefer the standard Skeleton/Zombie based necromancers. Fiends and stuff like that seem a little to "warlock"y for my tastes.
So basically my questions are: Is the necromancer a viable choice for this game? (Pet classes have a tendency to be overpowered or garbage in pvp)
Do they get any more generic style pets (Skeletons, Zombies, That sort of thing)?
One of my favourite necromancer classes in a game was DAoC. That 2h armoured skeleton you got at 50 (I think?) Was just epic.
