Tod, No offense intended, but compared to any other class, necros are not group friendly. You give more to the group as any other class after you hit level 20ish. Certainly there are exceptions to this rule, but the new spells, while fun, do not even come close to the damage level of a voker or the ...

since wraiths dont have stoneskin, necros will not really be able to solo until they have ghouls at level 41. Their new spells are useful, but I do not think they make up in power for the loss in pet power. 90 percent of necro power always came from pets, so the downgraded pets hit them hardest. Tan...

the biggest difference is wraiths no longer cast stone skin. That and they dont use sorc spells which means they are useless vs wraithforms and undead. This has a huge impact on the soloability of the necro class because wraiths die very quickly now.
