Necromancer Class Guide
Necromancer Class Guide

A new playerable class called Necromancers has been added to The Elder Scrolls Online: Elswyr and like all the other classes they come with three different skill-trees with different themes all of which focus heavily on controlling corpses to do their bidding, this includes the ability to armour themselves in undead forms. Although they are primarily concerned with death, necromancers can also heal both themselves and their allies. If you do decide you want to play as a Necromancer and master the dark arts you need to be aware that you will be playing an outlaw class and using their abilities could have repercussions. Necromancy is frowned-upon by Tamrielic society so whenever NPCs see an overtly necromantic act they will either act with fear or aggression and report it for the crime it is and you will gain a criminal bounty which will result in you constantly suffering harassment by law enforcement. Check out our Necromancer Class Guide to learn what all their abilities are.
