    Frost staff? doesn't really seem right. Lighting staff, also doesn't seem right. Fire staff, maybe be? But still a reach. Seems like wee need a disease based staff or something undead.

    I'm %90 percent sure the stamina variant of the class will be a disease based one with stamina scaling pets and also probably disease type dots,(%10 doubt cause stamblade has some disease damage in its kit, but come on now stamDk didn't stop zos from putting the best poison ability in the game to wardens)

    So with that expectation in mind, I'll be planning to use mine with 2h/dual wield(PvP) to maximize my damage while taking advantage of disease defile procs. Plus I have this weird feeling I might really enjoy playing a stamina pet spec, due to how easy it is to abuse pets in PvP and how damn effective they are for holding your ground in battlegrounds.

    For what weapon I think ''fits'' the theme, none. Maybe a destro/resto staff build. In all honesty a stamina necromancer makes no damn sense when you think about it, but this is ESO, not your typical fantasy MMO.

    Ice Spike, Ice Storm, Dread Zombie, Close Wounds, Greater Ward, Turn Greater Undead, Ebonyflesh

    Necromancers use cold damage, so yes, a frost staff fits them just fine.

    Wait, you're telling me you didn't expect pets when you heard ''necromancer''?
    How about we not call them pets for Necros...how about minions.....or summons....

    Frost Staff absolutely fits for the "grave diggers" imho. Remember the "Necromancer stairway" where we created our Flesh Atronach with Tharn? Was hella cold in there that the corpses don't rot.

    The same as the rest of the classes, which ever weapon you prefer. This isn't one of those games that pigeon holes your class into a certain weapon type.

    I’m gonna be more than a little upset if necro gets some good frost while basically every morph contained Warden’s Winters Embrace tree remain “for tanking only”

    I'd love to see a tome and an orb on one bar (craftable by a Jeweler), and a staff on the other.

    But..it's going to be staff/staff and 2 1hand and bow/2hander on the backbar. Just like everything else.

    For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen. - Douglas Adams

    It is a rare mind indeed that can render the hitherto non-existent blindingly obvious. The cry 'I could have thought of that' is a very popular and misleading one, for the fact is that they didn't, and a very significant and revealing fact it is too. - Douglas Adams
