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.
- 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 Chain Lightning grenade mod.
- the origin of Necromancy is a claimed form of magic involving communication with the deceased – either by summoning their spirit as an apporation or raising them bodily – for the purpose of divination, imparting the means to foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge. The term may sometimes be used in a more general sense to refer to black magic or witchcraft. This has evolved in modern culture as magic used by necromancers, wizards or mages who controle the dead as they see fit (often for evil).
