Necromancers are mages who specialize in the conjuring of undead creatures. They usually have raised undead lurking inside their lairs that are permanent and do not dispel unless defeated.

Equipment and combatEdit

Necromancers wear robes that increase the regeneration of magicka by 75%; when disenchanted these robes allow the Dragonborn to learn the Fortify Magicka regeneration enchantment. When forced into close-combat, or when their magicka pool is completely drained, they use Iron Daggers or Iron Maces. Sometimes they will use a steel dagger or a steel mace but this is normally at higher levels. At highest levels, they will move on to orcish weapons.

Above Level 81, Ascendant Necromancers spawned with Console Command will sometimes wear Ancient Nord Armor instead.

When brought to battle, Necromancers immediately reanimate the corpses nearby, then flee from melee range and use Sparks, Flames, or Frostbite. They may also cast Conjure Flame Atronach instead of reanimating the dead, if there aren't any on the area. A minor note, unlike their equivalent in Oblivion, they do not conjure skeletons from nowhere.
