necromancy Rotation

⬥ This rotation requires igneouskalmor. If you don't have one, remove deathskulls from the rotation and use touchofdeath and fingerofdeath where possible.

⬥ This rotation consistently hits sub-25-second kills and seeks to hit sub-15-seconds. It requires teleporting to Wars Retreat between kills for adren.

⬥ If using T95 gear, you will be consistently hitting sub-20-second kills and may wish to add in a omniguard spec before your t90 special.
