Sounds neat, huh? One player is requesting that class be implemented in WoW. Predictably, Blizz CM Nethaera shot him down.
I'm not sure this class would add anything to the game that the Warlock or Death Knight don't already bring to the table. Players seem to be calling for every type of class ever introduced into Warcraft lore to be playable. But we all know how tricky class balance is, wouldn't adding more classes just make things harder for the devs?
Either way, I put it to you, faithful readers. Would you play a Necromancer class if one was implemented in the game? If so, what's the appeal that the current classes don't already offer?
EDIT: Corrected name of Death Knight class.
