|“||Respect for the dead? Hahaha! I'll have none of it if that's what it takes to make ends meet!||”|
The Necromancers of the Elder Guard have long been allies with the dead, and they call upon them to rise from their graves, and aid in their quest towards retribution. The Necromancer has an especially close affiliation with the almighty king of the deceased: Vallacre, the Slaughterer. If she is to invoke his wrath, all who stand in its wake shall fall before him, and he is the epitome of fear itself.
Necromancers use the powers of the dead to attack their enemies. Their fighting styles are mostly mid-ranged when possessed by Vallacre the Slaughterer. While Wands are her specialized weapon, it is not uncommon for someone to use Twin Swords or Daggers due to their lack of speed and melee damage; however, Wands are still most used because most of the Necromancer`s skills do magic damage.
- At level 50, the Necromancer awakens as a Defiler. At level 75 the Defiler awakens as a Thanatos.

Awakening as a Defiler
Oh mighty Vallacre, my king, I call upon you! The ultimate Slaughterer of injustice, who strikes fear into the hearts of all living creatures; it is you who truly liberates the Dark Elves from oppression!
Hear this calling from your humble servant! Through this lowly form, unleash your true majesty upon this world!
I beseech your wrath upon the arrogant Elves, the deceitful Dwarves and even the shameless Dark Elven apostates who desecrate our name! I implore your relentless acrimony, to rain flames of vengeance to the treacherous Human race, and all its filth and corruption!
At last! The army of terror will rise and march forth again, at the summoning of the Great King! All opposing foes shall tremble in the shadow of his might! Prepare yourselves for inescapable despair!
Oh Vallacre, Great King of Terror! Hear my summoning! Ascend from the depths of your oblivion! I am but an instrument of your awesome embrace! Arise from your dank, shallow grave, and possess this body again!
Cursed be to Amora! Glory is the legacy of the Dark Elves!

Awakening as a Thanatos
|“||I shall guide you to the world of souls
Control the souls of the world with extreme necromancy.
Those who wish to learn necromancy... I will start this letter by sneering at your ignorance and recklessness.
No matter what you have on your shoulders, the choice you’ve made is wrong.
It’s like destroying a pillar just to fix the roof. If you have any sanity left, stop this madness.
And to those who still greedily seek a way to this.... Congratulations. You will not die in peace.
All of you!
Do not awaken the soul that surpasses your own capability.
Necromancy is a sorcery which materializes the remaining energy in the world.
Some foolish people have included the incarnation of evil spirits as Necromancy, but how are you going to control a powerful soul which has a will of its own?
Do not break the taboo with your foolishness.
If you do not wish to be constrained and suffer until your existence becomes less than that of a speck of dust.
If you do not wish to die before you are actually dead, you shall give up your ludicrous greed.
If you run into someone lucky, come to me. I would like to see the face of the person who ignores this friendly advice.
Well, that’s only if I am still sane by then.
