Idk...Tonyy (necro in ms) pretty much topped all parses in group content in ros and tbl when I was with him. One group in ros we were even mostly pulling singles/doubles and he still was slightly ahead of the other dps. And these are raid geared ms mains. Sure sphere helps when your with an sk that is tanking an entire etw of current mobs, but I genuinely believe all those crying about necro group dps...probably just kind of suck, sorry But hey, these are just my anecdotes. Truth be told, necro need a serious dot revamp without any shadow of a doubt. But those who can't parse now...probably still won't parse after dot revamp. Ps, necro pets being barely better than sk and enchanter pets is pretty amazing, cause chanter pets and sk pets tank like a boss.
