Class Icon

Necromancers are powerful sorcerers and masters of death. Using dreadful spells, they're able to raise horrifying undead creatures and restore their health by syphoning it from their enemies. They can even transform themselves into a powerful Lich, gaining access to new necrotic abilities.

Necrotic Energy

Your HEALTH is the Ability Resources to use attacks for Necromancers. Your abilities grant you Necrotic Energy, which is used to activate Lich form and restore your Health.
