The Necromancer is one of 7 playable classes available to start a game in Diablo 2: Resurrected . This type of character can summon the undead and curse his enemies. Next, in this post, you will be able to know its details in depth ; its attributes, abilities and what is the best build that we recommend for this class.

How to play with Necromancer? Helpful tips


The Necromancer class is perhaps the most difficult to play in Diablo 2. On the one hand, playing alone with this character is more risky than with the others, it requires good management and experience of their skills. For example, the Curses branch is very useful for team play, but somewhat limiting if you play alone.

Focusing on a single branch of the Necromancer will exclude you from playing others, so you have to choose very carefully beforehand what you are going to dominate with this class. Poison and Bone skills are generally very effective (especially late game), but getting started can be tough for beginners.

Obviously, the Necromancer’s stat distribution is based on improving Energy as the core attribute , while the important secondary attributes are Vitality and Dexterity . Remember that the weapons to use should be mainly those of mana regeneration .

Necromancer attributes

The initial attributes with which the Necromancer starts from scratch are these:

  • Strength:15
  • Dexterity:25
  • Vitality:15
  • Energy:25
  • Hit Points:45
  • Stamina:79
  • Mana:25

Leveling up

With each new character level you raise, the Necromancer will gain the following attribute points:

  • Health :improves by +1.5.
  • Stamina:improves by +1.
  • Mana:+2 buff.

Attribute progression

The stat progression with each Necromancer effect point is as follows:

  • 1 point of vitality:grants +3 points of life.
  • 1 Vitality Point:Grants +1 Stamina.
  • 1 energy point:grants +1.5 mana.

Summoning Skills
