Diablo 4’s Necromancer Stars in New Trailer

Summon Skeleton Warriors and Mages to fight for you, explode corpses for massive damage, launch bone shards, and much more.

A new trailer is available for Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo 4, with the Necromancer finally getting the spotlight. The class is multi-faceted, capable of hurling bone projectiles at enemies, leeching health with blood, exploding corpses and summoning an army of the dead to fight. Check out some of those skills below.

The Necromancer was one of the better classes in the open beta, and the developer has thus toned it down a little. Your summoned minions die more often, providing more corpses to use, and Corpse Explosion’s damage is reduced. However, the Book of the Dead’s stats are increased, and the Skeletal Warriors and Mages should be less bright.

These changes are available in the upcoming Server Slam from May 12th to 14th. Diablo 4 is out on June 6th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC. If you’re looking to hit level 100, strap in – it could take +150 hours on average, according to associate game director Joseph Piepiora.
