Hey all,

The Necromancer class is now live and available for testing once more! If you previously created a Necromancer, your same character should be available to play.

If you utilized the Character Copy feature since you last played the Necromancer, please bear in mind that you will need to create a new Necromancer to play. In addition, we will be activating Season 11 for testing later this afternoon. We'll update this post once the new Season is available for play!
