ESO Sorcerer

Guide to TESO Sorcerer Class

Update: This article contains only a brief introduction. If you want something more detailed and in-depth, this manual is for you. If you want to level up the Sorcerer as fast as possible with the best build, I recommend the first thing to do is head over and get yourself a copy. Not only does it have a much more detailed and up-to-date strategies on the Sorcerer, but an amazing leveling guide as well (see my review). I could have saved myself a lot of trial and error with this.


The Sorcerer is one of the five classes in the game, and it looks to be ESO’s standard magic class. In theory, the Sorcerer would be a spell caster in light robes wielding a staff, but because classes are not limited in what gear they can use the Sorcerer may turn out to be a very versatile class with a lot of options.

Since the Sorcerer is a magic based class, managing your mana is of paramount importance. According to www.elderscrollslevelingguide.com, this goes beyond merely making sure you have a lot of mana, as items, armor, and weapons will have various attributes that can make it worth your while to use. When looting, focus on items that grant more mana, lessen mana cost for spells, or increase the rate at which your mana regenerates. Carrying around a lot of mana potions for those awkward moments your mana suddenly runs out is a good idea as well.

The Sorcerer has three skills trees for you to pursue: Storm Calling, Daedric Magic, and Dark Magic.

Storm Calling, as the name suggests, is mainly about lightning spells and dealing damage with them. One spell in particular in this tree, called Mage’s Fury, has a ‘snowball’ effect in that the longer it is cast the more damage it does. This increasing DPS culminates in a powerful finish just as it expires.

Daedric Magic will focus on summoning creatures to fight by your side. Like in the large single player sandboxes, this opens up multiple strategies. For instance, you might use your summoned minion for extra DPS, or you might be of the mind to use it as a meat shield if you are wearing armor that provides a lot of buffs to your magical abilities but little defense. They also make good distractions if you find yourself in a situation that requires retreating to regenerate mana or heal.

Dark Magic is set to be the great crowd control tree that gives the Sorcerer a degree of control over how fights play out. One of the spells available is a knock back, which is good for keeping melee enemies away. Another spell shown off allows the Sorcerer to root enemies in place for a certain period of time, giving them not only a convenient battle tactic but also a useful disengage that makes retreating more manageable.

As a class, the Sorcerer will have a wide range of options when it comes to how they approach any fight, including PVP.
