For the class mod in Borderlands 2, see Necromancer (class mod).

Necromancers are wizard enemies in Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. They use dark magic to attack, and cast spells to raise the dead. Necromancers have skulls for faces.



Necromancers appear in high level areas inhabited by skeletons, where they often operate as a ranged unit behind the ranks of their skeleton allies.

Necromancers usually fight from a distance, casting skull missile spells and summoning skeletons to do their fighting for them. If a Vault Hunter gets too close, a Necromancer will lash out with a melee strike and try to get as far away as possible.
