The popularity of Elder Scrolls has exploded over the past several years. With the release of Elder Scrolls Online, players have a vast, new territory to explore and new races, classes and skills to master. One of the most powerful skills in the game is the crowd control (CC) ability.

Best CC Skills

The ESO Sorcerer has some of the best CC skills that can be highly effective, especially when battling a horde of enemies. There are three skill lines a Sorcerer possess including Stormcalling, Dark Magic and Daedric Summoning.

Stormcalling

The Stormcalling ability utilizes raw energy to deal massive amounts of damage to the surrounding enemies. The ideal CC spell for this path is Bolt Escape because it offers two benefits. First, it helps the caster to perform instant attacks by teleporting them in a straight line. Second, it stuns all enemies that are in close proximity to the teleportation. This is an excellent spell when fighting many enemies as it allows the player to move around and stun their enemies simultaneously.

Dark Magic

The primary focus of Dark Magic sorcerer spells is on CC. There are a number of trap spells that limit what the enemy is able to do. The three best Dark Magic CC spells are Repulse, Rune Prison and Encase. The Repulse spell causes nearby enemies to be knocked backwards and trapped for a short period of time. When the Rune Prison spell is cast, the enemy is sealed by a runic prison. Those who are imprisoned become disoriented but have health regeneration. Finally, with the Encase spell, dark shards emerge from the ground to immobilize. These spells are so effective because they allow the player to pound the enemy with destructive magic while they are immobile.

Daedric Summoning

With Daedric Summoning, the Sorcerer has the ability to draw powerful allies that can aid him in battle. The best CC skill within the Daedric Summoning path as recommended in esoclassguides.com is the Summon Storm Atronach. This spell allows the caster to summon a powerful helped who has the ability to stun enemies within a specific area. This leaves them open to severe attacks. Not only does the Storm Atronach assist with CC, they can effectively deal lightening damage to foes.

The Sorcerer in the Elder Scrolls Online is a highly effective class. When selecting a magic path that focuses on CC, Dark Magic is definitely the best option. Although the others are powerful, many have had success with Dark Magic spells.

In elder scrolls online it can be said that some of the most mind blowing experiences can be felt when playing as a sorcerer. When choosing the path of a soccer though, it’s worthy to note that there’s a wide variety of skills associated to each race, but a few that work more cohesively a sorcerer. Here are 3 of the best races to select when going down the path of ESO Sorcerer.

AltmerAltmer
If you’re in the Aldmeri Dominion, playing as the ALtmer is undoubtedly the best race to choose within the game when choosing the path of a Sorcerer. The Altmers have a huge magicka bonus that increases your overall max maigcka. If you increase this overtime, your max magicka will be so high, you’ll be able to easily dish out spell after spell without rest. Unlike other races, all the Altmer’s bonuses are entirely dedicated into building a truly powerful Sorcerer. They also have a bonus of ten points for alteration, destruction and mysticism along with five bonus points for alchemy, conjuration and illusion.

Breton
Breton
Sorcerers naturally tend to have a low defense in all RPG games, this is done in order to balance all the classes. Sorcerers have the ability to inflict an incredible amount of damage. To help counter this you can play as the Breton. They have an increased defense and a wide variety of magicka bonuses. Their defense bonuses are also very useful because sorcerer with dps build do not get much points to use on increasing their health. They have a bonus of ten points for conjuration, mysticism and restoration. They also have a bonus of five points for alchemy, alteration and illusion.

Dunmer
DunmerAnother perfect example of one of the race’s ability to enhance the experience of playing as a soccer is the Dunmer. This race is available to those within the Ebonheart Pact. In comparison to the other races, they have a higher than average magicka score and inflicts extra damage when casting fire spells. They have a bonus of ten points for blade and destruction and also five points for athletics, blunt, marksman and mysticism.

Choosing any of these three races is sure to increase the overall experience of being a elder scrolls online sorcerer class. As you can see, the Atlmers or high elves are more on the lighter side of sorcerer spectrum, the Dunmer or Dark Elves specializes in darker forms of magic while the Breton would be considered a greyhat magician.

A DPS Sorcerer has a few options when it comes to choosing the best build. If you prefer to use a pet, you will want to put some points into the Deadric Summoning skill line. If not, you will want to focus more on the Storm Calling skill line which is purely offensive. The third skill line is supportive in nature. Here are some of the best skills and abilities you should consider taking from all three sorcerer skill lines:

Storm Calling

The Storm Calling skill line is focused on dealing lightning damage. For active abilities, you will want Mage’s Fury,  the damage dealing skill all sorcerer should have,  and Surge. Lightning Form and Lightning Splash are more situated for fights with a high amount of adds to kill. Bolt Escape is an optional stun.

For passive abilities, you will want to grab Capacitor, Energized, Disintegrate and Expert Mage. All are important. In most cases, you will want to use the Ultimate from this tree, as it will increase your damage significantly.

Dark Magic

The Dark Magic skill line is full of supportive abilities. Most are optional, but some can be very handy. Dark Exchange is probably the most useful active ability as it allows you to regenerate both Health and Magicka. It means that you could heal yourself without having to group with the eso templar class. The other active abilities are crowd control abilities that are optional.

For passives, you will probably want Unholy Knowledge at least. The rest are focused more for players who use a lot of CC abilities. The Ultimate ability in this tree isn’t nearly as useful as your other two options, but may be beneficial for certain fights where an offensive dispel is needed.

Daedric Summoning

If you love playing a pet class, you will want to invest quite a few points into the Deadric Summoning skill line. Daedric Curse is a damage-over-time ability that will be useful for all DPS specs during longer fights. Unstable Familiar and Summon Winter Twilight are your pet-summoning abilities. Conjured Word is decent for gameplay survivability, but optional.

All DPS Sorcerers may find that Power Stone is quite useful, as it reduces the Ultimate cost of abilities. Other passive abilities in this tree are for players who have chosen to use a pet. This tree’s Ultimate is also pet-focused.

Sorcerers have many options when it comes to choosing a build that does maximum DPS. You should first consider how heavily you wish to utilize a pet in combat then choose your point placement based on that decision. Pets can deal decent damage, but can also be a liability at times.

The sorcerer class will have players taking the role of spell caster and summoner. Players will have the ability to personally wreak destruction with powerful direct damage attacks, to change the tides of battle with varied crowd control spells, or to summon powerful Daedric companions to do their bidding for them. While each individual tree has their own strengths and weaknesses, it’s important to remember that classes in The Elder Scrolls Online will be able to mix and match skills from different trees(See more information in elderscrollsonlineclasses.org). You won’t be forced to choose just one.

sorcerer storm calling

Storm calling will be the first choice for sorcerers wanting to dish out as much damage as they can. The passive skills in the storm calling tree are fairly straight forward, such as increased regeneration, a flat increase of lightning damage, a reduction of cost for some spells, and the chance to disintegrate low health targets. The active skill “Bolt Escape” will allow sorcerers to teleport in a line and stun enemies. “Lightning Form” will surround the sorcerer in electric bolts, increasing damage reduction for a short time. The other damage dealing active spells, “Mage’s Fury,” “Lightning Splash,” “Surge,” and the ultimate “Overload,” will be the player’s go to damage dealing abilities.

Dark magic is the second skill tree choice for sorcerers, and one that focuses on crowd control and utility. The passive skill “Blood Magic” heals you whenever you hit an enemy with one of your dark magic skills. When you’re hitting an enemy affected by dark magic, “Exploitation” will guarantee you an increase critical strike chance against them. The active skills of this tree are an array of useful crowd control abilities that will have your enemies knocked backwards, disoriented, immobilized, or snared. The ultimate skill for eso sorcerer, “Negate Magic,” is very powerful. It will dispel any magic effects in a target area, as well as damage and silence any enemies that are spell casting.

Daedric summoning is the third skill line for a sorcerer, and, you guessed right, it deals with summoning Daedra. Summoned Daedra, aside from fighting for you, will each either give you a unique buff, or debuff your enemy. The passive skills in Daedric summoning will reduce the cost of your summoning spells, or bolster your Daedric companions.

Don’t forget, the beauty of TESO is in the game’s dedication toward allowing the player to play how they’d like. Each of these three skill trees for the sorcerer are powerful in their own ways, you can always mix and match to allow for a vigorous, hybrid play style.

5 Devastating Skills Your Sorcerer Should Have

The world of the Elder Scrolls Online is truly immense. In order to have the greatest impact on impressive characters that you encounter, it’s vital that you’re also in possession of a well rounded and intimidating character. This will require plenty of hack and slash time, which will enable your character to level up. With leveling up, certain abilities will become available to you to use. Take advantage of this opportunity and teach your character only the most relentless of fighting abilities. If you’re playing with a sorcerer, there are certain abilities that are completely necessary for you to have the most exciting time on the Elder Scrolls Online.

It’s important to keep in mind that certain abilities will be connected to only certain skill lines. For example, with the Dark Magic skill line, certain abilies are much more prominently used. The first skill line, which goes by Storm Calling, will have completely different abilities available, as well. This also goes for the Daedric Summoning skill line. With each line, you have your sub-par attacks and your fair share of devastating abilities. The following will only outline the best of the best of each.

Dark Exchange is an ability that is highly suggested for those who are seeking to create a character who fights purely (or mostly) with magical abilities. Using Dark Exchange, the character gains the ability to give up stamina, in exchange for both life and mana. This ability has such an attractive quality, due to the fact that you have the ability to give up something of less importance to a sorcerer, in exchange for two things that are most precious. It can come in handy with those dire situations, where you run out of life potions and teetering on the brink of death.

The second skill in this eso guide list as refer to www.tesguide.com is geared most towards sorcery characters with a high favor of offensive abilities. With the Bolt Escape, you have the ability to move in a straight line, quick as lightning, while also slicing through your enemies for a “shocking” effect. This attack stuns enemies, allowing you the chance to deal devastating blows to their life energy.

Mage’s Fury is the third ability in our list, which is also most favored by offensive minded sorcerers. No elemental sorcerer should be without this horrendous ability. Rain lightning from the sky, effectively causing damage to large groups surrounding your character. There is also the chance of debuffing an enemy, which can actually cause them to explode from the force.

The fourth and fifth abilities do the most damage, when combined. When any type of summoning ability is coupled with the Expert Summoner ability, you have one force to be reckoned with. This skill increases numerous aspects of a summoned Familiar, Atronach, and a Winged Twilight summon.
