Help me decide between sorc and necro

I am a returning player and I was almost decided on playing a magsorc. I never played a sorc before, but I like the way the skills look with all that lightning and how it's good for tough solo content (at least that's what I've been reading throughout the internet). But reading some elder scrolls lore and looking at how necro skills look made me think that maybe I would be more satisfied with a magnecro (I prefer to play a magicka class until the time I think it would be fun to try a werewolf build). Unfortunately, because of how new the class is I cannot find that much material and opinions about the performance of the necromancer. So my questions are:

1- What's the actual state of the necromancer in the game? Is it better in something compared to the other classes and the sorcerer in particular?

2- How is the necromancer performing in solo content? Can I do vMA or world bosses with the same "easiness" that sorcs and templars do, or at least something close?

3- Is the necromag still lackluster compared to necrostam as it's said in some earlier posts?

4- Which benefits the class bring to a werewolf build?

    1. Magcros bring major vulnerability to the group and whatnot. Afaik they pull good numbers and survive well for dps.
    2. They have good self heals, aka the heal ghost, as well as strong ulti generation. So solo content shouldn’t be too rough.
    3. I believe they’re about the same in builds, but magcros actually use more of their class skills than stamcros.
    4. The passives may work for werewolf, but unfortunately WW was pretty heavily gutted a couple patches for pve and maybe pvp? I rarely see them now on any class.
    I will kick everyone's butt, even my own.

    In the middle of 2019 most of the post said that necro had a lot of stamina morphs and they were always better than the magicka morphs of the class and that made stamcro were more viable than magcro, but I'm don't know how much of that is valid right now. Maybe something changed for the better in other patches?

    I saw a video of Alcast doing vMA as a WW and I thought they were still good. What nerfs it got?
