The skills

Necromancers are the masters of dark arts, they can summon undead minions and suck the life force from enemies. Necromancer can cast a well to create a special area around him and give buff or debuff to those who stay in the area. Only one well can be activated at one time.

Example:

Well of Blood applies a regeneration boon to all allies within it. A necromancer can only have one well skill active at any time.

Another special necromancers ability is summoning undead minions. Minions can be used to attack enemies or sacrifice themselves to give power to the necromancer.

Example:

Necromancers have a healing skill called Summon Blood Fiend that creates a minion that heals its master while it attacks. After the minion has been summoned, the Summon Blood Fiend skill is replaced by the skill Taste of Death, which allows a necromancer to destroy the minion to gain a larger amount of health.
