I bought the Necro this morning.  Gave her an Ancient Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker with a Gem of Ease, assigned my 800+ Paragon Points, and started Campaign on Torment I.  She was level 69.7 or so when she killed The Butcher and finished Act I, so I just switched to Adventure mode.  Ran around in Act II just long enough to hit level 70, and decked her out with whatever was usable in the Stash.  Started running Rifts.

Sometime after lunch, my son asked if I wanted to MP, so we MP'd for a while.  Got up to T5 or so, stopped for dinner.  Played a little solo tonight, got up to T6.  Almost no luck with sets, so everything's piecemeal right now, plus I'm still learning how to play her.  Pretty fun.  Worth the cash.

Good progress Orbert. I'm somewhere in the 30s I think.

Not so much on higher torments.

It took me until last night to reach level 70 with my Necro. I started trying to take it slowly and level up trying out the skills, but lost patience quite quickly and upgraded some scythes and popped in a Gem of Ease. I didn't have time to try her out as a level 70, but upgraded a bunch of rares and now have her in Inarius 4-piece, Trang-oul 2-piece thanks to RORG with BiS weapon in hand and cube. Will try some rifts next time I'm on, but I note Necros only have 3 elements, so CoE cycles more quickly than other classes.

Getting my Necro to level 70 last night has given me an itch to play that I haven't felt for a few weeks...

Got 2 necros to lvl 70, one each in softcore and hardcore.  I was able to get all the new class achievements too!  Now I will try to get all the set pieces and the new class specific items for the cube for both softcore and hardcore, and master the new set dungeons.  I had fun playing it over the weekend messing with all of the skills while leveling up and trying to figure out which build I'd like to play moving forward.

Haven't had as much time to play as I'd like.  My necro is up to Act 3, lit the towers, and raised the catapults.  Playing with revives at the moment.  I was using Corpse Explosion but switched for not other reason than trying out skills.  Somewhere in the 50's at the moment.  Been playing campaign mode at Master's level.  Progress is a bit slow as I just haven't found many useful items, and I don't really want to dip too deeply into the cache of stuff.

I managed to complete the Inarius set last night, so only missing a ring for the Cube before I'm decked out in all BiS. I also need to level my gems.

Thinking about heading over to EU next and running through Campaign on EU which I need to do before I can access Adventure Mode out of season...

I concur.  It's fun early on, but fades later.  Revives feel the same way.  Sort of reminds of the revives in D2 which were dumb as hell and never were where you wanted them to be.

Did a 80 Grift using the Inarius set, seems to be pretty powerful, almost like the impale DH set.
I wish the other sets were as much fun.

Not sure if it's just bad luck or more that my expectations are too high, but it seems like it's taking forever to collect any set items for my Necro.  She has two pieces of Inarius' set, two pieces of Trag'Oul's, and one of Rathma's.  Some interesting new Legendaries have dropped, but so far nothing beats the Ancient Deathwish she's using which originally dropped for my Sorc.  Running bounties and rifts at T7 because so far that's all she can handle, but I'm getting frustrated with the drops, or lack thereof.  I have to keep reminding myself that I've only had her for two days.

Orbert - It seems that the smart players (not including me) saved up crafting materials and had enough stuff to craft complete sets.
That's why we had Grift 80-90's in the first day. I had two complete sets drop (trangs and Rathma) before I had half of the Inarius set.

The female necro voice actress is terrible. The portrait art is high school level awful and I can't begin to understand how that got into the final product. It's painfully jarring next to all the good portraits.

Otherwise, I'm enjoying the class well enough. Just plodding slowly through the campaign in hardcore, but having fun in the process. All the skills so far have been pretty fun to use.
