Greetings All! I know this question has been asked before and I have done my homework on the subject, but a lot of information that I see is quite outdated and I thus would like to bring this up again. Please bear with me and I appreciate your help. I am quite new to EQ2 and am having a hard time deciding a necromancer and a conjuror. Conjuror: Stronger Pets; Frigid Winds (strongest snare in the game); Strong encounter-wide damage; Call of the Hero. Necromancer: Weaker Pets; Tainted Heals; Strong single target damage (though takes a while to ramp up due to DoT effect); Rez/FD. Is the above more or less right? Now to my questions: Are both wanted in groups? Who is wanted more? Are both wanted in raids? Who is wanted more? Which one is stronger at soloing heroics/named mobs? What would you recommend to a new player? (My only other character is a level 30 brigand - who I love and with whom I soloed named ^^^ level + 2 heroics - but constant positioning gets boring.) Thank you in advance.
