Ok, so if a necromancer has the power to raise the undead then isnt it possible by some dark magic that they could sacriface someone to reanimate someone whos dead and make them into there servent? Like for example, a fight in Icecrown Citdel could be a Necromancer with 4 acyolates and he sacrifaces them to reanimate Grom Hellscream, Orgrim Doomhammer, Anduin Lother, and Uther the Lightbringer. They would be reanimated but would only serve the necromancers and become the perfect killing machines.--Icon AzgalorMaelstrong 13:30, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

I guess you need the corpses (or at least bones) to reanimate someone, like Kel'Thuzad was reanimated. Pudim17 (talk - contr) 19:42, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
While a Necromancer can raise the dead, I do not know if they need to sacrifice another person to do so. You are free to speculate however you want, but Blizzard will make whatever plot devices or boss tactics they feel like making.--SWM2448 19:49, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Necromancy as seen so far seems to require the remains of the one to be reanimated, as was done with Kel'Thuzad as previously mentioned. However, the original Death Knights were created using a process similar to the original post. To quote from Death knight:
Orgrim Doomhammer's first act as the new Warchief of the Horde was to crush the orc warlocks of the Shadow Council. He grudgingly spared the council's former master, Gul'dan, in exchange for the warlock's servitude; in turn Gul'dan promised to create a host of powerful new warriors to serve the Horde. After experimenting at length with the souls of the recently slain council members, Gul'dan successfully instilled the spirit of the necrolyte Teron Gorefiend into the corpse of a fallen knight of Stormwind. Thus, the first terrifying death knight was born. Gul'dan transformed his other council members as well, creating a vast legion of unholy warriors whom sowed chaos and fear throughout the land of Azeroth during the Second War.
