How To Unlock Necromancer in Loop Hero?

There are certain conditions that need to be met to unlock Necromancer in Loop Hero. This special character will only be unlocked if you have built a crypt. As soon as you unlock it, he will be able to equip — 1 amulet book, 2 rings, and a shield. The most important stats that come with the Necromancer in Loop Hero are ‘Max Skeletons’ and ‘Summon Quality.’ 

For the unversed, Max Skeletons is an ability that can be used to summon a number of Skeletons whereas the Summon Quality is something that you can use to increase the chance of getting higher tier skeletons.

Here are all types of skeletons and what they do in Loop Hero:

Basic Skeleton It comes with low attack and HP
Assassin Skeleton They have high damage, but low HP
Tank Skeleton These are brutes that come with massive HP, but low damage
Archer Skeletons You can only summon these after the max number of melee skeletons are reached.
For the uninformed, the recommended order of stat importance is Skeleton Level > Max Skeleton > Skeleton Quality > Max Skeleton.

Thick Necromancer Build

The build which Loop Hero players can try out right now is ‘Thick Necromancer’. To do this, you will have to look into building a forest in their base. Once established, the next thing you will need to do is build an Ancestral Crypt.

Once built, collect as many thickest as possible to boost the speed of summoning skeletons while using Laying down one’s life. Once you are done doing that, it is time to shift your focus on the skills of Field Practice, Unseen Care, Residual Heat, and Laying Down One’s Life.

While focusing on the Skeleton level, you will need to have four to five summon slots to divide the damage from Laying down one’s life. Notably, you can also do this by picking up the Art of Control trait.
