Diablo III finally got some new DLC and it’s a new character class! The Necromancer has made his/her triumphant return to Diablo and it’s a lot of fun.
I was a little worried about buying this DLC. Asking $15 for a single character class seemed expensive to me, but I took a leap of faith and spent $30 on the DLC. I bought one for my wife and I to play and it’s money well spent. The necromancer is a beast of a class. My build, at the moment, is focused on raising the enemies that kill from the dead to fight for me while cursing my enemies, spamming bone spear of doom, and zipping out of harms way with this cool blood dodge ability.
This class is a true hybrid and does everything well right now. I can be a dps spell caster, a tank, or just raise as many minions from the dead as I possibly can while I sit back and relax and watch them rip everything to pieces. I love this character right now. I don’t know if he’s, my necromancer is a dude, my favorite yet, but he’s definitely in my top 3 right now.
My wife also chose a necromancer and I’ve been building mine around her build. She likes to use her giant flesh golem to set up corpses while exploding them in a gory, aoe mess that fucks shit up. We play well together and we both have nothing, but positive thing to say, erm… write, about this DLC. I was afraid that it wouldn’t be worth it, but this is a quality character that Blizzard has made for us to use. Both the male and female have nice voices, animations, and they even come with some nice cosmetic items too. I have bone wings, a really ugly pet, and a nice looking portrait that I don’t use :).
This dlc got me back into Diablo III and I plan on running multiple builds until I find the perfect one for me. I also want to get back into season mode since I missed a few of them. Season 11 starts soon and I think I’m going to run a fresh necromancer for it. Blizzard knocked it out of the park with this dlc. I’m enjoying it a lot and I’m glad my wife is too because I spent $30 on this :).
Have you tried the necromancer dlc? What do you think of it?
