WoW's equivalent of a necromancer - the warlock - is quite fun too.

     While I loved EQ and its necros were fearsome I'd have to say that Vanguard necros have always seemed more fun. Unlike EQ necros they have access to multiple pets at once and take the body parts of mobs, like skin grafts (mentioned by 1!! Only 1! poster earlier) as well as other limbs, of differing qualities with different bonuses and REALLY make your pet. WTH is with all the necro players that haven't touched Vanguard? Seriously?

Can someone summon my corpse for me?

Necro was so so so valuable.

Agreed.. I think EQ1 had the best of many classes.. classes back then were role defining, not this homoganized stuff we have now..  Fear kiting was an art.. lol  along with what Necro's did in general..

Vanguard has the best Necro so far.
Necros can be improved in any mmo but Vanguard is quite advanced how it plays and is able to upgrade its pet.

"Torquemada... do not implore him for compassion. Torquemada... do not beg him for forgiveness. Torquemada... do not ask him for mercy. Let's face it, you can't Torquemada anything!"

I don't know if it's the best, but the only Necro class that held my attention for any significant length of time was in Lineage 2. So, just throwing that out there for something different. 

 

Judging by the posts though, I need to go back and try the EQ1 Necro :)

Vanguard Necromancy without a doubt!

Same as the EQ Necro but with even more...

Dps,charm undead, powerful pet than can be customized, feign death, resurrect other players, fear, snare

find corpse, summon corpse, levitation, waterbreathing,

sacrifice their health for more power or to heal others, stances wraith and Lich, Meat (HP/Str/Dex Buff) and Orb (Mana/IntWis buff)

Seriously cool class!

Kind of a tough one. Really depends on how you like your necro.

For traditional:

Probably either Vanguard, or EQ1. Kinda straight forward / bland, but put together well. It's very much your standard, dot-heavy / minion army class. If that's all you view a necromancer to be, then these games fit that perfectly.

Personally, I liked how GW1 handles the necromancer the most. Probably because it's the most versatile, and they do the most with the concept of a necromancer. It's not just limited to 'pet army' class, or a 'dot class'. It's one of the few games where the necro really feels like a master of death, disease, and decay. Whether you are cursing enemies for various different effects, spreading mass disease, raising undead minions, exploding corpses, feeding on corpses, consuming spirits of the dead, using your own life to power spells, or manipulating the dead to empower the living, it's all fun and interesting.

I just can't think of any other MMOs that have even half of that in their necro classes. With the exception of maybe GW2, but it's not out yet.

Definitely EQ1. That game was so freakin hard and it was damn near impossible to solo anything with the majority of classes. Necros were the exception and gods in that game.

 

I liked the EQ2 Necro, but it was a huge step down in perceived awesomeness.

 

The Rift Necro is cool, but the tank pet really sucks, which knocks it down a couple levels from my previous two choices. It also is not a viable spec at all except for leveling or soloing. It sucks in PVP and PVE at the end game which is a real shame. I also thought there were much more interesting mage souls available like the Dominator, which is one of the coolest mage classes I have played and what has kept me interested in Rift, besides the awesome guild I am in.

 

I loved the Succubus and the Felgaurd pets in WoW. I had alot of fun in Battlegrounds with the Warlock class.

I personally loved both GW 1 and AoC Necromancers.

In GW 1 they were just end all be all. And they gave that vibe of mastery over death n decay. A bit cabalistic too. Didn't like to play them because of their scary looks(hunchbacks lol).

Meanwhile in AoC you could actually choose between the mastery over the pets(Reanimator tree), shadow/cold damage(Nightfall tree) or the hybrid. I liked that freedom and how you could sacrifice the soul points(things with which you summon minions) for higher damage("Despoil the soul" was the name of trait if I am not mistaken). That choice is sadly lacking from most of Necromancers and therefore just stunts the RP possibilities of Necros(not to mention Necros start to feel...Vanilla? then). Not to mention that you get to play Thulsa's very own class(!!!)...

My opinion of course!

Of the games I've played I really liked Rift's Necro, in fact the mage class overall in rift is my favorite theme park class in any MMO ever. I like the synergy of Necro, Warlock and Chloro souls.

I want to be Uncle Owen again.

EQ1 hands down..........Was a master of all, could kite, dot, dd, mez,  heal, rez, and pull mobs.   I so hope eqnext has that class, if so I might of found my new home.

EQ1 you could solo a necro even more so in EQ2. Play it and you'll see.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

It's a coin toss between EQ and Vanguard for me.

Necros and Bards were gods among mortals in that game.

I'd go with DDO, played it for a long time and necro's always been good there, you float around, have red bright flaming eyes, kill stuff the press of a button, deal some nasty dmg, can't be instakilled couse you are dead and you get healed by negative dmg (immune to normal healing). Depends on the form you use.

Also because the loot you get is unique and the "build" you use are different from toon to toon there's infinite possibilities to build your character and be different from another.
