Necromancers raise the dead and get health and energy from other dying creatures. Most skills require some health sacrifice. Necromancers are the death mages in Guild Wars. They steal health with spells or place curses on enemies, as well as raising minions from the dead.


  • Soul reaping (primary): Soul reaping allows the necromancer to gain Energy when a creature nearby dies.
  • Curses: Curses improves the ability of a necromancer to cast curses, which have a negative effect on the enemy.
  • Blood Magic: Blood Magic improves the skills of necromancers that steal health from enemies.
  • Death Magic: Death Magic improves the skills that deal damage to enemies directly, or that raise minions from the dead.
