    I haven’t played in 5 years. Did they ever get around to revamping the Necro class?

    Necro class has been revamped... a few times. So most of your top DOTs have been consolidated (with an expected much higher mana cost), and that means you can only cast the TOP one (for your level) per type. Some lines have not as of yet (minor issue). However, your Wounds line has been nerfed to crap in the sense that it also got consolidated so you can only cast the top one and so you can no longer stack all the wounds line and then sit back and wait for the glory that was the proliferation for all of them to do their job. Now you get ONE wound DOT and when it does proc its proliferation, its result was not increased. The actual wound spell did get a minor increase in damage though.

    The new thing with a necro is that you will now USE ALL YOUR mana ALL THE time.

    Welcome back.

    I feel like someone doesn't understand necros these days at all.

    Necros are in a wonderful position right now. Some older necros just don't like change. The ones that love the way things are now don't ever speak because they know how just ridiculously overpowered necromancers are these days and don't want to mess it up.

    Good time to return if you are wanting to necro.

    Having to experience the glory of proliferation sooner and more often by just using your regular DoTs. The horror.

    Cragzop, at NO point did I say necros are NOT in a good position now. I simply explained the changes to the OP and how the DoTs were consolidated and the Wounds line changed (if that was how years ago necros stacked them). Simple. Nothing else. Wounds were nerfed. They were, does not matter whether those were overpowered or not. Simple math.
    Dude has not played in 5 years... gave a coles note of the revamp. Thanks for the reply. Cheers.

    Christ, guess a necro can't post anything these days, if one or two wizards are around. I hope the new expansion brings much love to your class. I mean that truly, and not in a sly or condescending way.

    For the most part yeah, just a couple left to do, plus many AAs got consolidated, you should come back now, i need another competent necro around.

    Nec class envy. A classic since the dot patch of 2002 :)

    You mistakenly forgot to point out that necros are way better than ever after the recent upgrade/revamp. How could I not make light of that?

    Necros are better than ever, its like god mode when playing one. Cast less dots, more time to chat to your groupies on raids, and still out parse every other class by 300-500K DPS on average.

    Best class to play for sure, that is if your one of the lucky 3 allowed on raids lol.
