Diablo III brings the Necromancer closed beta to life

WAKE ME UP INSIDE (wake me up)

It’s time to start dredging up corpses and making them do what you want in Diablo III, because the Necromancer closed beta has arrived. Of course, it is a closed beta, so if you haven’t been invited to test the new class you’ll have to just watch other people testing it. Still, you can look through the full list of Necromancer abilities to get an idea of what it’ll be capable of once you do get to play it in the future. It’s necromantic stuff, you know.

You can also test the rest of the patch as well; it might not contain any more corpse-animating weirdos, but it does contain new Challenge Rifts, new Adventure Zone maps, and various quality-of-life improvements and fixes. Obviously, those aren’t the things that will draw the most attention, but they’re all still there. And who doesn’t want more adventure zones to explore with the eventual and inevitable Necromancer? No one.

I love the Necromantic theme, and the synergies between the abilities sound like they’d be really fun to play around with. Of course, I’d go straight for a minion build if I got my hands on the class, same as how I played the class in Diablo 2.

I just want to know how much the necromancer is going to run, since I remember seeing that it would be a paid class.

Blizzard really needs to stop slacking off. They are capable of doing so much more with Diablo.

Grinding Gear Games response to this is probably:

true, but the pet classes in poe are not that great for true end game given the need for leeching, vaal pact and/or CI

the necro looks pretty solid as an alternative to the witch doctor

I don’t know if it’s just because it’s a new class, but it’s a lot of fun. Nothing like hurling corpses to defeat your enemies.
