Starting Necromaner Profession

has that. The Necromancer is extremely strong if used as your primary profession.
The damage a Necromancer deals is not one of the highest of the four casting
professions. You'll notice that you are weakening your enemies attacks and

dabble your points everywhere, but instead focus on maxing out attributes that
you plan on focusing on specifically.
