Classes: The Necromancer

Necromancers - Masters of death. With their powerful pets and variety of damage over time spells, necromancers are one of the best solo classes in the game.

How should you develop your necromancer to best take advantage of his abilities? What are the important faction considerations for a necromancer? Which spells work best, and which are not worth their price?

Post your strategies on how to best play and develop the Necromancer and read, rate and comment on what others have to say.

ya i heard of another good TSS zone--Blightfire Moors i belive is what they are called.like lv range 23-35(NECROS ARE GODS HERE!, they are able to agro kite a lotta mobs here for insane xp, same goes if ya wanna go to sunderock.) Direwind who also be good, should be better xp then icefall too.

I just started playing EQ a few weeks ago, and I love my Necromancer, but could you tell me what PC stands for? The level 14-25 place. Thanks!

PC will be very nice xp into the high teens, and is a favorite powerlevel spot for many people.

I'd add Natimbi to the list for the 51'ish to 59'ish range. Can kite on either side of the river near the zi.

I also concur with Icefall as a good xp zone with lots of kiteable content...70+ seems about right.

Try Dawnshround peaks from 30-40, better in a group than solo, but kiteable with care and/or daring.

Nobles' Causeway in the low 60's has 2 kiteable Murk camps. WoS is good xp and drops in groups during the 60's also.

The 69.1 mission is great solo xp (need 3 people in group to get mission) at multiple levels in the 60's and possibly into the 70's (haven't been back in a while).

Finally, Overthere is also good in the mid-teens, near the fort and beach. Drops sold well when I was leveling up, but probably not as well now.

Enjoy.

At level 70, the Jewel of Atiiki Efreets are VERY good exp. The bonus to doing them for exp is the drops for the Death Visage mask quest. If you do the first pyramid, can also get the drops from the named rock dervish. The drops from the named Efreeti is ok as well.

At this level The Buried Sea is nice as well. I like the pirate camp on the back side of Jardells Hook. The bonus to them is that you can do the majority of the hand augment quests involving Jardells Hook at that camp. I would do the Just Deserts quest over and over again there, until you have all the quests for that island done.

I know this is a solo guide, but the first two missions for Solteris access are great exp at this level. Especially the Statue mission.

ya know, I have been playin EQ for a long time, and have always played Necros, with just a few other classes... Every one is always saying go to OT in the teens through the mid 20s and sometimes the way to mid 30s, and no one ever says any thing about zones for the Iksar Necro.. OT is not really an option for the most part... but you can solo with great eaze if you just try lookin for the right place... one that I found to be really good if you just took your time and kited was in WARSLIKS WOODS there are wolfs, and skellys, as well as bandits along the north side next to Cabilis, there are Muarders over by the zone to OT. strait south of the zone to Cab. is a fort with Goblins, they are good for xp in the 30s..as the named Goblin Dob is there..plus you are able to get in to the zone Dalnir. a great place for a low lvl raid.. ya know in the low twentys with a couple of higher ups helpin out. What I always was lookin for was places that I could go and just work by myself but could also bring people to help out if I wanted...
