“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
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.
- In True Vault Hunter mode they are renamed Unholy Necromancer, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter mode they are renamed Desecrated Necromancer.
- Killing a Necromancer counts towards the Magical Massacre challenge in the challenge list.
- The badass version of the Necromancer has a chance of dropping the legendary Chain Lightning grenade mod and also has a chance of dropping the blue rarity version of the Magic Missile grenade mod.
