Summoners are always interesting but as it stands now I immediately leave games with a necro in it. Not only do i dislike video lag from too much going on in the screen (mainly due to the over-developed spell animations on runic's part), but i kind of like being able to tell who is a bad guy and who is a good guy. Also, I enjoy getting to those bad guys without having pathing issues related to minions. My experience with the necro as a summoner in this game is I end up standing around waiting for the minions to kill things because I can't get to them and kill them as a melee class. This is just my take though, food for thought.
