Surely, this deserves to be nerfed, right? :oEdit: And I forgot that it can be buffed to 33% if traited! :o Almost every class has access to a trait or signet (some have both) that grant's 25% movespeed increase, plus as other have mentioned the same effect can also be gained with runes and also consumables.Swiftness grants an increased 33% making it superior to the permanent 25% increase gained by traits, runes and signets and Necro has far less access to this boon than most classes do, combined with a lack of gap closer's.All in all having a permanent 25% increase on a trait or sigil really isn't that much of a benefit for a Necromancer since pretty much every class can gain this same benefit really easily and surpass it with swiftness, superspeed and gap closer skills, all of which Necromancer lack access to.This puts the Necromancer at a major disadvantage in mobility compared to most other classes which is one reason why it's bulk is justified and it's access to hard CC like daze/stun and fear as well as soft movement CC's like cripple and chill.Also it's access to pulls to which is unfortunately not that useful at times since for experienced players it's pretty obvious to see coming most of the time.Necros are more designed to lock down opponents rather than chase them but with cleanse spam and some classes having too much access to stunbreaks and teleports/leap skills etc this locking down tactic is nowhere near as useful imo as both the offensive and defensive effectiveness of gap closer skills are.Reaper darkness GS has a pull tech which can be useful with blind pull and spinal shivers are extremely powerful. I think some like you are seriously undermining how useful it can be. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
