It resembles Blizzard's Abomination a bit too much...

I for one like the ugliness of the blight fiend, kinda reminds that necromancy is a dark, morbid business (compare with D3's pretty goth boys/girls and clean shiny skeletons they command). But if blight fiend was centaurish or even centipedish it would had been even cooler.

Does D3's Necro have a summon besides Skeletons?

Ive watched steam on D3 with necroaction - he just click LMB at the start of location and release it at the end. I dunno why ppl "play" D3, it look like a parody on progressquest :roll:

Yes, a golem. Very much what blight fiend is, but more pretty, cuz it's made of pure meat instead of bodies stitched together. That is, unless you pick a certain rune and turn him into golem of ice, in which case it stops looking necromancish altogether.

Well, a friend of mine is quite satisfied with D3 necro. The reason he states is that while in most games summoners are "lazy" and passive, D3 Necro is not like that while still being a summoner. I don't know the details though. Kind of a bummer though that, yet again according to a friend, none of top 500 necro at the moment use summoner builds, because it's weakish. Perhaps what you had seen is a caster necro, not a summoner one.

P.S. it's kind of hypocritical to wonder why ppl play D3 because of holding LMB while GD is essentially the same for most builds.

D3 Witch Doctor summoner basically does everything D3 Necro summoner does but better, far as I can tell from levelling the two up side by side (they use the same gear so you can round robin it when you do that). You get up to six zombie dogs (skeletons who have special abilities without needing to be direct commanded like necro skeletons), one gargant (golem), spammable temp spiders (like necro skeleton mages except they don't cost non-regenerating mana to spend like necro mages do) or one giant spider if you hate wasting time spamming the little ones (which you probably will but unlike Necro mages, switching to one giant spider is an actual option), five dagger midgets, and like tree other midgets of various types depending on what you choose for their rune (midgets aren't as cool as Necro revives but the coolness of necro revives dissipates fast when you realize you only get them for 25 seconds each) in addition to your follower (mercenary).

The necro skeleton mages in D3 really kill the summoner build on various levels of fun in most peoples' opinion (including mines) because Blizzard's itemization insists on shoving them down your throat as you're forced to stop to spam them and then MANUALLY devour up the mana to keep spamming them in order to utilize the necromancer summoner equipment set and Blizzard refuses to change how the skill works. It's powerful but lame because you're forced to spam LMB to summon them over and over and over again (and during that casting time you can't move) unable to do anything else without even having to aim. LMB builds in every other action RPG (D3 included) at least have you to aim the cursor somewhere!

Centipedish like a human centipede? Urgh, nope. I'm fine with the Blight Fiend being disgusting, but there are limits.

Centarish... Hmm... This reminds me of the Undead cavalry in the Kohan games. They were skeleton centaurs and their description is that they were made of human knights and their horses.
