Title: Alter Aeon Necromancer Class Expansion
Post by: Dentin on November 03, 2010, 03:44:44 pm
As many of you already know, the new Necromancer class has gone live!  This is the first class expansion ever to be added to the game, and probably won't be the last.

This new class adds a lot of flavor and new options to the game.  The class has a pretty heavy emphasis on minions, which is a dynamic that really didn't exist before.  Some of the available spell and skill groups for necromancers involve:

- creating animated entities of various sorts
- raising your own undead
- summoning demons for fun and profit
- using dragon teeth as powerful spell components
- blood skills involving your own blood
- controlling undead and demons
- soulsteal and other spirit-based spells


A full spell and skill list can be found at:

It's already looking like a really solid addition.  So far all of the bug reports have been typos and other minor things.  There will naturally be a lot of balancing work in the next few months, but for now it's going very smoothly.

Congratulations on the successful expansion.  Any clear favorite for the 6th class yet?

My guess would be druid/shaman/ranger, though it'll be quite a while before I seriously look at the spell/skill lists.  I already posted about this elsewhere before I saw this note, so rather than repost it please take a look at this:
