In this week's Community Spotlight, we focus on the thread, "MMORPG with the best Necromancer class?" by Larloch.

Larloch says:

Which MMO has the best Necromancer class? If you want you can list and rank the ones you have played. Explaining why would be great. Thanks guys.

khamul787 picks Guild Wars:

As with a lot of people here, I'm saying GW. My necro was one of my mains for about 1000+ hours and I absolutely loved the feeling of being a true minion master. Micro managing nearly a dozen minions with buffs and debuffs, keeping them alive, using them to keep me alive, body blocking... I just love the class ^ ^

Dragim (and many others) vouch for the EverQuest Necromancer:

I would say Everquest, because it was a heck of a lot of fun and they had usefulness (well, at least in the beginning) besides just being damage output.

My corpse is lost, can someone help me find it?!

Can someone summon my corpse for me?

Necro was so so so valuable.

Vahrane feels the Vanguard Necromancer doesn't get enough credit:

  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?

For me, it's the City of Heroes Necromancy Mastermind.  You had a total of six pets out at once and they ranged from a couple of zombies to an awesome CC-loaded Lich.  Like any other Mastermind, you could pair up this skillset with any of the other powersets available to the archetype and this allowed you some interesting levels of flexibility.
