Do you like to play with dead things? Heck, who doesn’t? It’s one of the most well-adjusted activities that any person can do while causing all sorts of awkward silences at Thanksgiving meals. And thanks to MMOs, we can engage in necromantic play without being arrested and subject to many tut-tuts from passers-by.
Many — not all, but many — MMORPGs include Necromancers in their class line-up, even if they’re not called that by name. Summoning skeletons, exploding corpses, and yanking souls out of bodies like taffy is all part of a day’s work for them.
So which MMO has the best Necromancer? Personally, my favorite is my Unholy Death Knight in World of Warcraft, because I like having friends who don’t have tongues to make snide comments back at me.
