Necromancy in Ultima Online is a different school of magic than Magery. It is a dark art, that deals mostly with death and the dead. To successfully use it, besides Meditation for full mana reserves, the skill Spirit Speak is needed, taking the place of Evaluate Intelligence. The actual usage of the skill is fairly easy, as only a special spellbook with the spells of Necromancy is needed to start training.

Note however, that the skill does have its own reagents:

Bwuo.png Bat Wing
Dbuo.png Daemon Blood
Gduo.png Grave Dust
Ncuo.png Nox Crystal
Piuo.png Pig Iron

Depite it seeming logical, this skill is not hurting the karma of the player.


To train the skill as fast as possible, follow this guide for which spell to ast a lot at which skill level for maximum effect.
