    Everquest has them

     

    World of Warcraft has warlocks, which are almost the same thing

     

     

    Your argument is like a two legged dog with an eating disorder...weak and unbalanced.

    The 2 best for necros are EQ2 and EQ1.

    Who let you in the VIP section?

    Best Necromancer class that comes to mind is in Everquest 2

    But others has em too:


    • Lineage 2

    • Vanguard

    • AoC

    • Everquest

    • City of Villians

    • Probably some other asian mmos

    People who have to create conspiracy and hate threads to further a cause lacks in intellectual comprehension of diversity.

    Dark Age of Camelot has a necromancer class on the Albion realm.

    No required quests! And if I decide I want to be an assassin-cartographer-dancer-pastry chef who lives only to stalk and kill interior decorators, then that's who I want to be, even if it takes me four years to max all the skills and everyone else thinks I'm freaking nuts. -Madimorga-

    In terms of games with the most fun necro class, I'd say it would be a toss-up between Diablo 2 and Guild Wars.  Neither is a MMORPG by the definition used here, though.  If you want something MMO'ish, I wouldn't recommend Warlocks in WoW.  They don't really deal with the dead much at all, so no raising an army of skeletons or anything like that.  Their shtick is more demons.  In fact, the DK class which is going to be released with WotLK is probably closer to your usual necromancer archetype.  You've got some spells to manipulate the dead and raise minions, but it's more of a melee caster overall.

  • If you want to get retro, Dark Age of Camelot has a number of classes that could qualify, and people do still play the game. There's the Cabalist, who animates stone and deals with life force stealing. The necromancer, who summons an undead pet and casts all spells through it (and becomes an invulnerable ghost incapable of interacting by anything other than their pet when the pet is summoned). There's a Midgard class that summons spirits, and another that summons a skeleton pet who summons other pets.



    I've never played Guild Wars, what's the necromancer like in there?

    It's actually pretty cool.  GW has some great classes.  Takes a bit more brains to build one since, by default, your base build has no spells or points in any skills.  Of course, there are always the cookie cutter builds that work fairly well, but everybody will add their own small twists out of personal preference.

    Only deal with Guild Wars is that its PvE content is highly linear, and it won't stand up to the consumption rate of a super hardcore player.  If you're casual or don't mind going a little slow, it has a good amount of content, though, especially if you have the xpacs.  Still, at its heart, GW is an Arena PvP game.

    red stone has them, and I bet barely anyone plays it so you can zoom up the rank quickly.

    The Warlock in WOW can play like a Necro with the talent tree setup for it and it's probably the most fun I had with a magic/pet class cause I found the necro class in EQ2 to be very bland.

    You could try MMORPG.com all you need is a Avatar picture of a necromancer then you just need to find some 3 year old dead topics and reserect them

     

    Seriously tho i hear WoW has a Necro class as does Everquest 2.

    Another great example of Moore's Law. Give people access to that much space (developers and users alike) and they'll find uses for it that you can never imagine. "640K ought to be enough for anybody" - Bill Gates 1981

    World of warcraft warlock is nothing like a necromancer class,The warlock can summon demon's that fight along side him as he dose alot of magic skill's and can only have one pet out at a time/the death knight has a ghoul that can rise with a cooldown or tho talent's make it a allways out pet but the pet add's lil to the class and the death knight is just a beefy melle class.. im also looking for a game with a summoner/necromancer class which seem's to be vary underrated in the gaming industry
