The min-max choice is STA, both because you can't cap it with gear alone, and because STA is more important than INT to a necro (Lich line of spells means massive mana regen, the more HP you have the less you have to lifetap, the size of the mana tank isn't important since you will almost never be full mana). INT is also much more common on gear, my necro was 200+ iNT without even trying from low end tunnel gear, with raid gear you'll easily hit INT cap.

Either way you're fine, but if you're the type to min-max and will regret not being 100% optimal, go STA. If not, INT or STA are fine.

STR also a good option. Necro make a really good Drain Tank from 4-30. Also helps with carrying capacity.

If you're min / maxing, then Stamina. (Even though Necro only get 2.4 HP per STA at 60, so +20sta is only +48hp) -- It's nice to see high stats at level 60.

You can't make a serious mistake here, you'll be fine with any of the 3 options

Big fan of Str on any toon, especially if it won't be heavily twinked.

These threads start out so vague then turn into 50 pages.

OP, what are your end goals? Do you play your chars to 50ish then quit? Do you want to min/max?

Some combination of INT/STR will probably see the biggest benefit while leveling. But at 60, if you're gearing out which will pretty quickly max INT, then you'll probably want to go STA. I went 25 INT/5 STR on my Human Necro, no regrets. But if I knew I was going to raid a lot with him, I would have definitely gone STA.

I honestly donít remember what I put my start stats in but concur you canít go wrong with stamina, intelligence or str.

Stamina: pitiful returns even at 60 but moar stamina = moar hp which for necro is huge

Intelligence: obvious benefit is obvious but capping or getting to 200+ is easy. Mana pool is less important on a class that can lich.

Strength: a quality of life stat for the full duration of your time enjoying the character.
