Plot

Rise of the Necromancer introduces a new playable character class – the titular Necromancers, known as the Priests of Rathma. The school decided to respond to the Sanctuary’s call, ending their training in the depths of Kehjistan jungle, which had teached them to maintain the balance between life-giving and deathly powers.

Mechanics

The necromancer, whose gender can be choosen at the beginning of the game, has control over a special school of magic, drawn from the power of death. Their power stems from blood and bone – raw materials of life, and they can use it to tip the balance of life and death, and create living dead that answer their call. Diablo III Necromancer is based on D2 one – even if the add-on doesn’t introduce all the abilities known from the previous installment, that version of the hero was the main inspiration for the developers. The player can make use of a spectacular Corpse Explosion, a ranged Bone Spear, summon skeletons, Siphon Blood from his enemies, or use Blood Rush for short-range teleportation.

Additionally, the new hero has his dedicated legendary items and sets, and an in-game pet. The add-on also introduces more character slots, a portrait frame, pennant, banner, and a unique sigil, as well as two additional stash tabs for PC version.

Technical Aspects
