Necromancer Introduction

Necromancers are the blade-wielding, undead-commanding, area-of-effect specializing spell casters of EUO. They are equally at home in playing as a front line combatant, slinging spells from the back, or acting in a support role.

They have three class skills: hexblades, necromancy, bonecrafting.

Necromancer Skills

Necromancy

Necromancers have one skill pertaining to the use of magic: Necromancy. For more details on spells and magic in general, refer to: Magic and Spellcasting.

Hexblades

Hexblades is the melee combat skill used by necromancers. Wielding hexblade weapons also allows necromancer to cast spells without penalty instead of using a staff, and provide the similar benefits (quicker casting times, weapon tint effects, etc).

Hexblades requires wielding a ritualized weapon which is created via the Dark Ritual necromancy spell. These weapons are the athame, the sickle, the stiletto, the kris, and created by casting a Dark Ritual spell on an equipped longsword, scythe, rondel or kryss respectively.

  • longsword->athame
  • rondel->stiletto
  • kryss->krys
  • scythe->sickle

All non artifact weapons of the correct type will convert into their hexblade equivalent, and convert back by casting Dark Ritual again while wielding the hexblade.

All hexblades use the 10:90 STR:INT ratio.

These weapons have the same stats as their unritualised parent, but are slightly faster.


HEXBLADES SPECIALS BUY THESE AT THE UNI! You can also use the 'special move' generic ability to cast apprentice special etc, as for the fighter specials.

black lightning It's blood bolt, but intelligence adds damage

healing bolt It's a reverse blood bolt, that leeches health and restores yours: doesn't do as much damage as black lightning of course

Bonecrafting

Bonecrafting is the only class-specific crafting skill in EUO.

For necromancers, equipping a bone tinted armour or jewellery increases their hp by roughly 10%, with diminishing returns for each additional bone tined item equipped to a maximum of a 50.5% bonus to their hp. For non-necromancers, bone tinted items only increase their hp by half of that.

Bone tinted weapons grant +10% dmg to spells.
