Magic: Legends Unveils The Necromancer Class

Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios have officially announced that the Necromancer will be one of the five starting Planeswalker classes available for Magic: Legends players at launch. Themed around the core purpose of black mana from Magic: The Gathering, Necromancers personify power at any cost—even death.

Players who choose the Necromancer class will find themselves in a constant balancing act between life and death. Summoning creatures, sacrificing them for benefits, and whittling down opponents over time will be key to a Necromancer’s success. Key abilities for the Necromancer include Grim Siphon, a mid-range lashing attack that drains life from foes over time; Grave Upheaval, a damage-dealing secondary ability that targets foes and summons two skeletons; and Soul Wither, a utility ability that applies slows and damage over time effects to nearby enemies.

The best Necromancers will walk a razor-fine edge between tremendous gain and devastating loss. Players can spend their own life force to summon powerful creatures while saving just enough health to siphon life away from foes and friendly units alike as their undead army grows ever stronger.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
