In my opinion this set and potentially some other sets I have overlooked would have a nice synergy if the actual corpse was something necromancer skills could interact with.
After all it spawns a "corpse" O.o!
What do you think?
See, now this is the kind of depth I would like to have in the game. Interactions between class skills and sets are virtually non-existent. If we had more sets that could alter a way we play a class or skill line, this game would have far more diversity other than "how much weapon/spell damage do I get from this set?" That question is literally what any build boils down to when deciding on what to use, and of course the sets which give you the most potential amplifications will be the only relevant ones.
When they announced Necromancer class and skills, I fully expected Templars to be able to use Repentance on Necro-generated corpses, which would have led to some interesting synergy between classes, but no devs had to kill any depth and fun there.
