Necro Questions & Answers

Posted by Suzie Ford on Aug 31, 2010  | Comments

Necro Questions & Answers - MMORPG.com

ArenaNet's Lead Designer Eric Flannum and Game Designer Isaiah “Izzy” Cartwright have been "summoned" to answer fans' questions about the latest announced class, the Necromancer. Devs cover several of the Necro's arsenal while talking about Fear, Death Shroud, Minions, Wells and more general questions about the class.

Q: Fear sounds like an unbalanced crowd control mechanic. Could you explain this mechanic in more detail? How often can you use it and can you remove it? Are there certain types of enemies that are immune to fear?

Eric: Fear is a condition and is therefore removable by anything that removes conditions. How often fear can be used depends entirely on the skill that inflicts it, so it will vary from skill to skill. Boss monsters are currently immune to fear, but this is something that we are constantly balancing.

Izzy: Currently, fear lasts 2 to 5 seconds in PvE and 2 seconds in PvP, but these are just the current numbers and we’ll continue to refine and balance them as we keep playing.
