The powerful Necromancer will be one of the character classes in Diablo 4. Masters of Undeath, they were incredibly popular in previous entries in Blizzard’s action-RPG franchise. Now armed with the Book of the Dead, they can command a wide variety of unnatural powers as they also battle the forces of hell.

Like all classes in Diablo 4, Necromancers have access to Legendary Aspects, which allow players to affix certain abilities onto their gear as they explore the world of Sanctuary.

However, to do this, they will have to find these Necromancer Legendary Aspects within the dungeons around the game. Each dungeon in the game has a specific Legendary Aspect as a reward. Unfortunately, it's not yet clear which dungeons will have which aspects, outside of the Fractured Peaks area.

Note: The abilities listed below are the official descriptions for the Legendary Aspects.

Diablo 4’s Necromancer class and all known Legendary Aspects

All Diablo 4 players will find these Legendary Aspects in their Codex of Power, which sort these into categories. All the powers they will find in this list are exclusive to Necromancers, and no other character class can use these.

In Diablo 4, Necromancers can act as summoners, combat spellcasters, and can also deal damage in close-quarters combat across a variety of spells. They will use abilities such as Skeleton Warrior, Corpse Explosion, Bone Spear, Iron Maiden, and Decrepify to battle the forces of Hell.


Many of the abilities will be familiar to Diablo 2 players, but there is a new feature. They can use the Book of the Dead to customize their undead armies, so that they can use their minions in a way that best suits them.

When it comes to their Legendary Aspects, some information is presently available. Here is everything we know right now about these abilities. Some of these Legendary Aspects can be unlocked in the Diably 4 Early Access Beta - although the class won't be playable until next week, when the Open Beta begins.
