"The Necromancer creatures, while weak at the low levels, become much more powerful at the high levels. The Necromancer is weak in the early game, but strong in the mid and endgame. Larger maps give the Necromancer time to develop the higher level creatures. All Necromancer units (and ghosts) are undead, and are therefore immune to mind affecting spells, Bless and Curse, and are always at neutral morale."

The Necromancer is both a faction and a class of Hero in Heroes of Might and Magic II.


The Necromancer faction is one of the two factions from Heroes II that aren't based on previous factions, the other being the wizard.

The Perpetual Storm building gives defending heroes or captains +2 spellpower. The undead nature of the necromancers protects them from curses and morale effects, but also blocks blessings.

The Necromancer town is the only town in the game that cannot build a tavern, as its undead troops cannot benefit from the morale increase the tavern provides. In the original game, the spot normally occupied by the tavern was vacant, but the Price of Loyalty expansion added another building called the Shrine in its place, which increased the Necromancy skill of all Necromancer heroes under the player's command.
