Baldur’s Gate III – Is it possible to make a good Necromancer with melee?
Guys, gather round! Picture this – you, ruling over a zombie squad, while still holding your own in a brawl? Get set, cause we’re diving deep into a killer build – War Cleric 1/Necromancy Wizard X. Okay, it might not make you the punchiest guy in a fistfight, but with an epic combo of spellcasting and perks, you’ll own the battlefield in no time. Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of how to juice up your necromancer skillset.
1. The Magic of Mixing Classes:
Mixing a War Cleric with a Necromancy Wizard sounds weird, right? But, it opens up a whole new realm of game-changers. Getting your feet wet in War Cleric at level 1 gives you access to some key armor and shield proficiencies. That means you can take a punch in the gut, all the while focusing on casting those devastating spells.
2. Checking Out Other Paths:
Yeah, the War Cleric 1/Necromancy Wizard X build is pretty rad, but it’s not the only one on the block. Have you considered the Pact of Blade Warlock with an armor dip? There’s a catch though – we’re still waiting to find out if they’re packing Necromancy spells. So, if you’re dead set on raising the dead, sticking to the War Cleric 1/Necromancy Wizard X is probably your safest bet.
3. Why The Oathbreaker Isn’t Always King:
In the world of D&D, Oathbreakers can get their hands on the Animate Dead spell at level 9. It’s a safe bet this will cross over into Baldur’s Gate 3. But, if you’re all-in on Necromancy, taking a half-caster class like the Oathbreaker Paladin might not be your fastest track. They’re like the slow-pokes of Necromancy – taking twice as long to get to Animate Dead than a Wizard. Rolling with the War Cleric 1/Necromancy Wizard X means you’ll be animating corpses like a pro in no time.
4. Choosing Your Race and Making the Most of It:
Want to ramp up your necromancer skills? Choosing the right race is key. Check out the humans – they’ve got light armor and shield proficiencies right out of the box. Pick a race with the right proficiencies, and you’ll have a character ready to dish out damage and take a hit.
Ready to shake things up with the War Cleric 1/Necromancy Wizard X build? It’s a perfect setup for those eager to dive into necromancy while staying flexible in a fight. Merge the War Cleric’s armor and shield perks with the Necromancy Wizard’s spell-slinging, and you’re an unstoppable force. Pick your race wisely, harness the power of the undead, and get ready for a wild ride in Baldur’s Gate 3!
