Placement of Death Shroud[edit]

What exactly is an other skill vs a weapon skill? Based on the following definitions, Death Shroud has different places.

  1. Weapon skills are the 1st 5 skills on the skill bar. → Death Shroud is weapons skill.
  2. Weapon skills are the skills on a bar determined by the weapons wielded. → Death Shroud is other.
  3. Other skills are the last 5 skills on the skill bar. → Death Shroud is weapons.
  4. Other skills are all non-weapon based skills. → Death shroud is other.

Now, combining different opinions together.

  1. Weapon Skills are 1st 5 and Other skills are last 5. → Death Shroud is weapons.
  2. Weapon Skills are skills determined by weapons. Other skills are last 5 skills. → Unknown
  3. Weapon skills are 1st 5, other skills are non weapon skills. → Unknown
  4. Weapon skills are skill determined by weapon. Other skills are non weapon skills. → Death Shroud is other.

Link to profession article[edit]

We need a link to the profession article itself on those lists; currently nothing here links to the Necromancer article. Adding a statement "A list of necromancer skills" at the top of the article looks a bit ugly, though. Would you people prefer a notice at the bottom right, like the link at the bottom here, or something else? Erasculio 14:36, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Skills and traits[edit]

It was mentioned at one of the fansite forums how traits actually change the skill description. So it's possible that some of the skill descriptions we are using are actually "wrong"; or rather, that they are about skills under the effect of a trait, not only the skills themselves. While I expect most skills to be correct, it would be good to keep our eyes open about this. Erasculio 10:30, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Definitely something to look at more closely before game's released.(Xu Davella 11:09, 14 March 2011 (UTC))

Well of Blood[edit]

Can somebody please remove Well of Blood from the list(apparently it's an utility skill)? I don't want to destroy the grid. Corvus 20:15, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Aquatic skills[edit]

Some necromancer aquatic skills can be found here:

Trident weapon: Crimson Tide - Bleed your target Feast - Weaken and damage foes around you Sinking Tomb - ... your foe and make them sink Frozen Abyss - Freeze the area around you, chilling all nearby foes

also dont forget the downed underwater skills. in the demo is also the new necro downed skill pictures. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Bone Golem[edit]

A bit of inference, but this quote may mean there is an elite minion skill for a Bone Golem:

"You can run a minion on heal, bone minion utility (which gives you 3), Bone fiend, and Shadow fiend, and a Bone Golem. Giving you a fairly large minion army." sauce(reddit).

I'm hesitant to add it to the page without perhaps some further confirmation. But this is more just an fyi. Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 00:07, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

I see that the page was created for this skill and was entitled "animate bone golem". Can someone source this for me. Also the guru compendium is not a source, I'd like the original please. The name which starts with animate does not match the minion summoning skill style from GW2. Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 18:18, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
Scratch that reddit. Now I"m curious if a flesh golem is the same as a bone golem or different. Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 18:20, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Can someone fix the necro scepter skills?[edit]

It is beyond my ability to fix this. The second skill should be Feast of Corruption and the third should be Grasping Dead. The third axe skill is Unholy feast. Deathly Swarm is the first focus skill. Enfeebling Blood is the first dagger skill. Mark of Blood is the second dagger skill. That fixes all of them. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Never mind I figured it out --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).
Stop 'fixing' things, the page reflected the most recent necromancer information from G*Star. Several abilities were shuffled between weapon sets, including FoC being moved to axe, UF to OH-dagger, etc. The page has been reverted and is thus current. Do not change it back.

Spear or Harpoon[edit]

In the new video from the press beta weekend the spear no longer exist and instead the necro has harpoon skills. Which some are different than the spears skills. at 2:35ish they show each of the harpoon skillsRaziah 05:51, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

All the skills[edit]

[1] have fun! 08:51, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Added Descriptions to Skill list[edit]

I've added descriptions to the skill list to make theorycrafting and such a little less tedious. 11:53, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I've switched it up to pull the descriptions straight from the infobox. It doesn't pull the recharge, so I've left those in. --JonTheMon 18:26, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
I really hate this description update. It's nice to have the cooldowns and information readily available, but it really messes up the aesthetics of the page; I wish we had/supported pop up tooltips on mouse over instead.Crucis 00:22, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
I really love this skill page layout and I might go ahead and do it for the Guardian. Omlech 06:16, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Credibility of Necromancer skills.[edit]

Watching the reference video for the necromancer skills I noticed some discrepancies between the skills shown and the skills provided in the wiki. Can someone please double check the validity of which weapons has which skill? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

They'll be fixed as the game enters public beta. The list is updated by the playerbase, and so far, the "playerbase" has not been able to log into the game, only selected members of press or friends and family of devs. -Auron 03:16, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
The recent changes are according to a recent interview with Jon Peters, so they haven't been filmed yet. There have been changes on the luna atra skill too as well that haven't been mentioned by Jon Peters or in any officially allowed info, so that info can't be implemented (yet) on here.--Ee 05:49, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Spectral Walk[edit]

It's missing from the skill list despite being on BWE. I tried to add it to the list but on every preview I managed to break the formatting on Well of Suffering for some reason. If somebody more competent would add it that'd be nice! The page for the skill already exists. :) LastDay 10:29, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Done ;) -- Cyan User Cyan Light sig.jpg 10:39, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Terrestrial Skills?[edit]

Why is the does the Profession Mechanic area contain a category for "Terrestrial"? These are Death Shroud skills. Jpk0721 (talk) 23:37, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Because the "terrestrial" skills are death shroud skills used on land, as opposed to the "aquatic" skills used under water. — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 23:49, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
