Diablo 3 Necromancer update: All the big Blizzard changes REVEALED

Based on fan feedback, Blizzard have released a new Diablo 3 Necromancer update, affecting the new character’s various skills and passives.

Passive changes include: “When this passive successfully prevents death (Final Service), the Necromancer is immune to incoming damage for 4 seconds.”

While this won’t be the final version that will be released by the development team later in 2017, it does point to some things that won’t make it out of the beta phase.

The new PTR update also adds Necromancer Set Dungeons to Adventure Mode, as well as a time limit to complete them in 5 minutes.

Blizzard have yet confirm an official release date for the Rise of the Necromancer pack, although with a beta running smoothly it appears we can’t be too far from launch.

For anyone who has tried the new characters, the Necromancer packs a huge variety of skills across long range, short range, and pet-oriented skills.

Fans will be hoping that following the release of the new pack, Diablo 4 news may be released at Blizzcon 2017.
