Necromancers have really valuable items in their loot: Boots of Haste , Noble Axes and Skull Staffs. They have a weak defense so even knights are able to kill them with a litte limitation: their Death Hit works only if you stand next to them.

The most cost-effective way to hunt Necromancers is solo them for knight of level 60+ and paladin, mage or druid with level 40+. As they drop Boots of haste not so rare, you can count on a few pairs after 4-5 hours of hunt. The best way to kill Necromancer is just hit it with Fire or Ice Strikes until it dies, as fast as you can to avoid summons. Lower level druids or mages can summon demon skeleton or even 2, as it is much safer to make Necromancer retarget on it. While killing a few Necromancers at once, you should be careful, as they can surround you with the summons and hit from distance. The most effective way of killing Necro is at Necromancer Quest, which brings biggest benefit for levels 80+. Higher level Knights (70+ approximately) can easily hunt these creatures after the Summer Update of '07. Just run up to them and melee them. Using Exura with Soft Boots will make you use very little Strong Health Potions or Great Health Potions, whichever you are using.
The same counts for Paladins, except that they have to stay at a distance and maybe run around to avoid being hit by it's summons.
If you are a 55+ Mage you can easily hunt necros solo by just using Strong mana potions, as you'll only need to use Flame Strike and exura. But be careful, if you run into a spawn with 2-3 necros they can summon a lot of minions and that could result in a lot of mana waste. Try to stand still and use Fire Wave cause they will keep exactly 4 spots distance from you which makes it easy to defeat up to 5 necros with a few waves.
