Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios have officially announced that the Necromancer will be one of the five starting Planeswalker classes available for Magic: Legends players at launch. Themed around the core purpose of black mana from Magic: The Gathering, Necromancers personify power at any cost—even death.

 

Players who choose the Necromancer class will find themselves in a constant balancing act between life and death. Summoning creatures, sacrificing them for benefits, and whittling down opponents over time will be key to a Necromancer’s success. Key abilities for the Necromancer include Grim Siphon, a mid-range lashing attack that drains life from foes over time; Grave Upheaval, a damage-dealing secondary ability that targets foes and summons two skeletons; and Soul Wither, a utility ability that applies slows and damage over time effects to nearby enemies.

 

The best Necromancers will walk a razor-fine edge between tremendous gain and devastating loss. Players can spend their own life force to summon powerful creatures, while saving just enough health to siphon life away from foes and friendly units alike as their undead army grows ever stronger.

Players will choose their path through these diverse planes while collecting and upgrading a multitude of unique spells to create a powerful spell library. They can then use these spells to control the chaos of battle as they fight to save the Multiverse from its greatest threat yet. Magic: Legends launches on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation®4 in 2021.
