The Elder Scrolls Online is coming out soon, and one of its main draws is its freedom of choice. Players won’t be bound to the classic cookie cutter molds that they’ve been made accustomed to in past MMORPG franchises. With that in mind, we know that leveling is going to be a very experimental process for everyone, and nothing is yet set in stone. This can be an intimidating fact for the power leveler who just wants to get to the end game content and maximize their pvp ability as soon as possible. There will be a lot of competition out there, racing just as hard to get to level 50, so how does one make their way in a game that doesn’t have any set rules in place yet? Luckily, the beta period has offered great insights to the way each class is played, so let’s take a look at some basic tips and strategies a player can utilize when playing the sorcerer class.

It is true that any of the four classes in the game will be able to use any weapon and any armor they like in a way that offers wonderfully unique styles of play, however the sorcerer class is reminiscent of past MMORPG caster classes which emphasized maintaining a glass cannon role, and it’s the way many players will utilize the sorcerer once the game is finally released. It’s easy to see why, as the light armor skill tree will offer numerous perks to a player’s magicka use even at the cost of heavier armor that mitigates more damage, so it’s easy to see that light armor will be the first choice for many fledgling sorcerers. As far as weapons are concerned, sorcerers have many ranged spells they can learn from any of their three class skill trees, and if they’re using cloth armor it’ll be good to have quite a bit of space between them and their enemies, so a nice ranged weapon would be one of the most helpful to choose.

The only two ranged weapons to choose from are either the destruction staff or the bow. The bow is certainly not a bad choice, as it allows for the distance a sorcerer will want, but the destruction staff offers that and much more. Sorcerers ought to choose the destruction staff when first starting, as its first skill choice, DestructiveTouch, will give players the ability to not just pick off enemies from a distance but also to stun them once they do get too close. As far as the actual class skill tree to utilize, all three are very powerful in their own right, however Dark Magic will offer the sorcerer some added utility capabilities for additional survivability that the other trees don’t have, so it’d be a great choice for the solo power leveler but might not good for making gold.

Keep in mind that the Elder Scrolls Online will be breaking many molds once it’s released on April 4th, 2014, so there will be many different ways that people will play that are just as effective as any others. Use the above tips to help get started, but don’t be afraid to switch things up to suit a different play style. Deviating from the norm is, after all, one of the strong points of the game.
