Necro All

The Necromancer (Japanese name) is one of the new classes in Etrian Odyssey V. They are capable of manipulating the spirits of the dead, called wraiths, using them as minions for a multitude of purposes, be it attacking, defending, spreading ailments, or healing the party. Necromancers are hence very flexible and can fill in various roles in the party, but clash with other classes like Rovers who also bring their own companions in-battle.


Wraiths are a unique summon and a resource for the Necromancer, and have their own stat progression, tied to the Necromancer summoning them. If not used for any spell, the Wraith has a chance of doing nothing or attacking a random enemy, with a very small chance of inflicting paralysis.

Legendary NamesEdit

Spirit EvokerEdit

The Spirit Evoker puts an emphasis on gathering a larger number of wraiths as fuel for their supportive skills. They enjoy a more well-rounded stat growth for better survivability.

  • Strengths: Good coverage of elemental damage and ailments, on top of defensive and offensive abilities regarding Wraith attacks.
  • Weaknesses: Potentially skill point intensive. Support skills branching off Life Exchange are luck-based and have chances of unreliability.

99 +16 +32 +0 +8 +8 +8 +12 +12

Spirit BrokerEdit

The Spirit Broker takes a more aggressive approach, with attacks that help them create wraiths with massive health pools, before using said tanky wraiths to shield the party or do absurd amounts of damage. These receive a stronger Intelligence and Wisdom growth.

  • Strengths: Capable of immense amounts of damage using Wraiths with high enough health. Zombie Power on instant death-vulnerable FOEs creates 9999HP Wraiths that can be flung with Fair Trade for just under 10,000 damage a turn.
  • Weaknesses: Lack of offensive variety. Gates of Hell, their staple damage source in boss fights, is extremely TP intensive.
