Default Returning - absolutely torn. Mage or necro?

I will be mostly a filthy casual and soloing.

I love the mage class but I also love the necro. Eventually i would like to perhaps acquire my epic.

How far behind is the mage in terms of soloing than the necro

Depends on what you want to do. Chain cast pets or dot stuff up and fear it. You have a lot more versatility with a Necro to solo higher end mobs. With a mage you just have to get really good and chaining pets. I have leveled 3 Necros to 54+ on this server, so I am kind of partial to them. Play what you find the most fun.

If you like grouping, go mage.

Necros do have lots of utility but most get lazy and don't make the most use of what's in front of them.

Necro is way more versatile, but mage game play (at least until pet chaining) is more relaxed. It's so relaxed that you just die when things go wrong since you do not have a good save skill. Gate is possible of course, but usually will be too slow... or you will have to cast it pretty early.

Groups seem to prefer mage because of higher DPS in group encounters. Necro dots are really more for soloing since mobs die too fast in a group.

necro is more versatile, u get more options and utilities

mage is straight forward, and may get a bit repetitive long run

Mage. Gnome Mage. I got my epic on p99 so it’s doable.

Necro if you want your epic(though necro epic isn't exactly easy). Also just a way more versatile class, mage not having any real form of CC kinda blows when things go wrong.
