Summon-able Pets for the Necromancer
The necromancer has the ability to summon a variety of undead minions, or pets. Pets are available on a point-based system. The higher a necromancer's level, the more points available to expend. At level 5, 10, 15, and 20, a necromancer has 2, 4, 6, and 8 points available respectively. It is also possible to increase the number of points available to expend by learning and using the "One With Death" feat. The "One With Death" feat gives the necromancer one more pet point to expend after each application at the cost of 887 HP, and the effect can be stacked up to three times.
Each pet costs a certain number of points. Since the summoning system is point-based, the necromancer can choose any type of minion to summon no matter what type, as long as points are available. Thus, a necromancer might choose to summon a Mutilator and two Reapers for a 5 point cost, as long as points are available.
There are three main types of undead servants: Undead Minions, Deathless Acolytes, and Dread Archmage. Typically all of the creatures of a particular type will have similar attacks. For example, all of the Undead Minions use melee attacks. The difference between different types of creatures is significant because of the feat tree. Different feats that are learned might apply bonuses or affect only certain categories of undead servants. For example, the "Grim Hunger" feat affects the attacks of the Deathless Acolyte and Dread Archmage minions, but does not affect Undead Minions at all.
The pets available are as follows:
|Name||Level Available||Point Cost||Minion Type|
|Blighted One||25||1||Undead Minion|
|Necrotic Bomb||35||1||Undead Minion|
|Blood Arcanist||80||4||Dread Archmage|
