===Weaknesses=== * Weak in early game. * No skills for disposing of junk items like Jinxed Jewel Of Encumberment. * [[Reincarnation]] in your [[Resurrection Phase]] can suddenly and unexpectedly cause you to become unable to act. * If a kill opportunity suddenly pops up, using Drain Soul will cause a slight delay that can allow a player to escape danger. * If you are slightly too slow with Drain Soul and the target dies before you use it, you'll typically have to wait 3 turns before getting another draining opportunity. * Being constantly on the lookout for Drain Soul opportunities can take up a lot of mental resources useful for other strategizing. * You require Boots and Gloves to make the most out of your [[Ethereal Gem]]s; a Gem's utility is much more situational otherwise. For this reason, Saboteurs and Quantum Physicists can effectively counter much of Necromancer's strength. [[Spectral Screen]] can steal your Ethereal Gloves. And if you're poor enough, Warlock's Goldfiend can make it difficult for you to even purchase Boots or Gloves at [[The Market]]. * Paladins and Priests can remove Drain Soul from themselves (and other players in the case of Paladin), and a Paladin will gain Empowered Dice. * Lawyer's Sue can make killing another player painful. If you are not careful with counterplay, Lawyers can also use Confiscate Evidence to steal your Spirit Slippers or steal your Light Wand to prevent you from having a Revive. * [[Evil Barrier]] and various Curses can prevent you from removing Temporarily Denied with your Spectral Cleric at a crucial moment. * Bone Mage can be countered with [[Magical Mind]]. * If you gain [[Frost Immunity]] to protect your Boots and Gloves, your Chilling Ghost cannot apply Faerie Frost to you. * In an FFA game, some Skeleton and Zombie Minions require good luck to be useful without Command Undead. * Enemy players can view your SP through your Master Of Death Buff tooltip and can also see turn counters for and the names of your Undead Minion Buffs. * [[Mystic Shop]] can appear as a random event, in [[Cards Of Fate]], or through the Arcane Portal in [[The Haunted Mansion]] during Halloween, giving non-Necromancers access to one of Necromancer's "more exclusive" strengths. Ethereal Gem can also be found in [[Reinforcements]]. * If there's not enough predictable death occurring throughout a game, your endgame strength can be underwhelming. * In very long games, space gain from Spirit Slippers can become underwhelming.
