Hi everyone, I made my first character today, and my plan is to make him a necromancer, I'm not sure if that's possible but it's what I'm hoping to do!

Thanks for the advice, my only concern so far regarding the game is balancing it with my new job, cause I'm already getting hooked smile
Welcome to PFO.
my wizard is very necromancer..

would get mage for armor feature.. gives some physical armor.. and base defense.
get necromancer feature .. concentrate on spellbook spells that use those words.

for weapons.
diminishing wand.. primary attacks.. chill touch.. carrion strike.. and midnight ray( can get this one after you level wizard a bit)
secondary attacks.. weakening ray.. devour caress…. weakening ray adds drain.. devour caress hits hard and heals..( at melee range).. last cantrip is noxious flume.. its acid damage I think.. but you need something that is not negative energy for when you fight undead.

for staff attacks ..
not 100% sure on pure necromancer.. I prefer physic staff.. has good crowd control.. which is why I like it for fighting at range.. but am sure there is decent necro line up you can come up with.. diminishing staff is the type of staff you are going to want for those cantrips.

can see all the cantrip attacks at .. you are wanting to match the keywords on those cantrips.. to the keywords found on the diminishing staff..

holler in general if you have any questions or get stucksmile
Just be aware there are no "pets" in game yet .. so no summoning critters like undead.
Welcome Stephan 9854, I am very new to the game myself but everyone is very helpful with tons of advice.
