" Life is so fragile, and so meek.

It can bend with a single word spoken; an utter.
It can shatter with a single pierce; the smallest.
It can kneel to the weakest of sick; a drop.

"But what of you?", asked the feeble man. The answer was simple.

I take life, not live it. "

"Q & A" SECTION:


Q: Why are different skills types scattered among the Trees?

A: This allows for diversity, and encourages exploration of the 3 trees. All 3 trees will have something that will be useful to you and the build you want. The passives will also play a much bigger role then just being small boons. You may find skill and passive combinations that will be surprisingly effective to how you wish to play it.


Q: Why use Major Brutality only as a damage buff in this class?

A: Major Brutality is a "Universal" buff, that increases both magic and stamina based skills. With this in mind, this will make Minor Buffs from other Class Skills very valuable to the Tomb Keeper. Such as: Using ____ on skill use will give Minor Sorcery to allies for 20 seconds. This Minor buff will be synergized with Brutality, since it's Universal and cannot be overwritten by other Majors and Minors. So you will be achieving 25% + 8% more damage if playing with allies who have and use those class skills.


Q: This is a lot of minions, why so many?

A: I feel this game lacks heavily in the Conjuration School. Not to say bad things about the Sorc, but their minions are very weak, very few, and feel like they were not thought out well enough. An immobile Storm Atronach was also quite distasteful. With the Tomb Keeper, it focuses heavily in minion usage to deal all kinds of effects, while you yourself deal heavy damage or use them to assist you in Tanking and Healing. All the minions will feel they have genuine purpose, and at the same will still deal significant damage instead of a frugal amount.

    Indeed.

    However, Necromancy is banned by the Mages Guild.

    The only exceptions to this rule, are magic involving Daedra and Corporeal Spirits; like how the Dark Elves do.

    This class reflects that rule giving a "Necromancer" feeling, but still following the rules of the Mages Guild and it's Lore.

    Basicly looks pretty good in my opinion, but there are some things I would criticise or that would have to be improved imo.

    1 - Got the feeling that too many of the abilities are about mainly dealing damage, but too few for plain buffs like major ward and so on. These might be not so cool, but every class should have the resistance buffs and some others.
    Maybe change a dot to an armor buff that also deals some damage aside the buff (like the dk buff where you can choose between a small extra dot or more survivability).

    2 - Three permanent pets might be a bit too much for how they work in eso. With 3 of your 5 skills per bar set in stone by them (should you use all at the same time) would be something I definetely wouldnt enjoy playing if it was the only way to reach 35+ numbers for example.

    3 - "Scathing Rot - Increase the chance of taunting a target with Non-Taunting skills by 15%/25%/35%."
    You cant leave that passive like that. The idea might be cool when having a tank in mind, but you must think of all the thousands of casuals who will use this passive without knowing and ruining basicly every random dungeon by running in circles with the enemies and wondering why they keep dying. (The imagination of this passive ingame terrorises me. I detest people running in circles with the boss.)

    And dont forget that ZOS basicly wants every class to be viable as healer, tank or dd. Your proposal looks like a class that is meant to be played as mag dd. Additionally, Staminamina eh eh waka waka ehhh eh. Think of them too.

    Thank you very much for the detailed examples and opinions.

    I take all criticism seriously in the development of this new class.

    As I will be working on new changes in the next build.

    I will keep your notions in mind.

    No it's not.
    After you complete the Mages Guild questline, there's an orc woman in Eyevea who summons flesh atronachs while other students watch. One even takes notes. She also summons daedra. Everyone else in Eyevea seems fine with her doing this.

    The "Alpha 17.c" build is now live.

    - Changes were made to make the class suitable for all roles, like all the other classes are.

    - All minions now have a unique ability upon activation.

    - Skills can now be morphed to fit Stamina-Based Builds.
  • ben_roprim
    I forgot to add some things to the build.

    Added the rest of the Stamina Based abilities, Radius Stats, and other minor changes from my notes.

    Sorry about that!

    That is all the changes that will be done for now.

    Dont really like it, tbh.

    I'd rather just see a necromancer guild/skill line with a few basic undead summons. Joining this skill line removes your access to mage's guild skills.

    M'asad - Khajiit Nightblade - Healer
    Pakhet - Khajiit Dragonknight - Tank
    Raksha - Khajiit Sorcerer - Stamina DPS

    As much as I would as well, I feel it would break the lore of the game it's established thus far. As 3rd party Necromancer groups are disliked by the Mages Guild cause they refused to join them and regulate the Dark Art. There are reasons why Necromancers are not seen in the Mages Guild. There may be a few in there, but most Necromancers are "Chaotic Evil" then say "Chaotic Good". So a Tree branching in Necromancy from the Mages Guild or any guild for that matter, wouldn't seem flavorful for the Time Line this game take's place in the Elder Scrolls Universe. At least, in my opinion.

    I am not sure what BiS is, so you'll have to forgive me.

    As for complaints, there was 2; including yours. Reception has been very well so far. And as I said, changes are to be expected. This isn't a project I plan to rush.

    Well, the base of the class is magicka.
    But, can be Stamina based when morphed. Just like the NB and DK are magicka based from the start. That is what she meant by Magicka Base Class.

    I heard ESO is coming out with a necromancer class.

    Highly doubt it will be as flexable as my creation.

    I feel ESO is lacking in the flexability department, it's what killed the game for me and why I don't play anymore.

    I really hope that they take the skills seriously (probably not, sadly), so it genuinely feels necromatic.

    In that regard, I feel bad if it's not up to snuff when people buy it from the dlc.

    They'll be getting another slinkish tree, that's a watered down version of my necromancer class.

    Very little is even similar. I can only assume Soul Fang is what suggest is the same as Scythe yet it is nothing like it. Had to go through the list twice to figure that is what you are thinking. In the end I think you are seeing things and suggest not wasting time on an attorney.

    It seems more that you are the one taking things a little seriously by still suggesting it was based off your "creation", a suggestion that got such little interest when it was posted a year ago.

    Nope, not serious. No rage here :) I only shed 1 tear, I promise.

    Clearly there was interest though, since Zenimax themselves made it.
