Sorcerer1-1Attribute points can be provided by every level you gain on the sorcerer. These cam be used to invest in stamina, health, or magicka. The strength of your character may depend on this important choice. A sorcerer will obviously have a major need for magicka. How you use your staff skills and class skills will be determined by magicka. How quickly you can put out DPS will be decided upon by your magicka pool. There is a soft cap for attributes although it is tempting to sink most of your points into magicka. A decrease in the effectiveness of attribute points after a certain amount is caused by a soft cap. However, health cannot be soft-capped, while magicka and stamina can. Therefore, even with an emphasis on health, attribute point allocation should be fairly even over stamina and magicka. Stamina may be less important if you are deciding on a pure mage build. But putting attribute points in stamina may also be a good idea. Dodging, sprinting, manually breaking roots and stuns, and using skills like dark exchange will still call for the importance of stamina. You do not want to limit yourself in this area, since mobility is critical to the sorcerer.

As you get sorcerer’s good gear and your character advances,your demand for attribute points will also change. There is a good chance your gear is providing a great deal of magicka you are wearing mostly light armor. That way, even before attribute points are taken into consideration, it is bringing you close to the soft cap. Since your attributes will be in high demand and nowhere near soft cap, you may want to invest some in health and heavily in magicka in the early game. Depending on your build, you will probably want to save some of the points spent in magicka into either stamina or helath once you surpass level 40. It is vitally important to invest points into stamina if you choose to use a weapon other than a staff. Stat can be brought over the soft cap with veteran ranks increasing attributes across the board.

Regardless of the penalty, some players are in favor of pushing a vital stat such as magicka far over the soft cap. It is not recommended to push this limit very far although it is okay to go slightly over the soft cap. Your health stat is essential to your survival with being a squishy light armor user. Therefore, it deserves a quality investment of points.

Which Armor and Weapon Works Best for Sorcerer Build?

The Elder Scrolls Online has one of the most flexible character-building systems of any modern MMO, and this can make figuring out which builds and equipment to use a slightly daunting task. While there are four classes, they can all use any of the weapons or armor in the game, along with the associated skill lines. Which builds and weapons are “best” depend entirely on what role you want to play.

Let’s start out with armor choice. The most “typical” choice for a elder scrolls online sorcerer class is likely to be Light Armor, due to its various passives that assist with magicka, magicka regeneration, and various other “Mage” abilities. Nearly all of the class skill lines use Magicka, so unless you plan to be less focused on spellcasting (using a non-staff weapon, for example, or relying on summons) you may want to consider this first. Medium Armor tends to assist in Stamina, Stamina regeneration, and stealth, so consider using it as part of your build if you plan on using other Stamina-using skills such as a bow or a melee weapon. Finally, Heavy Armor is mostly about aiding survivability. This can sometimes be a viable option for healing or summoning-focused Sorcerers.

Next we’ll look at weapon choice. The most obvious weapons for a Sorcerer are the three types of Destruction staves (shock, fire, and frost) and the Restoration staff. These skill lines all use Magicka, so as mentioned before you may want to pair their use with Light Armor. The three types of Destruction staff have generally identical attacks with the exception of the crowd-control effects tied to some of the skill abilities, so take this into account when choosing which to use. Some build is good for making gold through farming with eso sorcerer. Some is better for PvP. If you do decide to use bows and melee weapons, make sure you have the Stamina necessary to power their attacks.

Finally, let’s look at the three class skill lines. Storm Calling is largely a collection of direct damage and area-of-effect abilities, with some nice passives that aid in Magicka reserves and regeneration. It’s a good choice with Light Armor for those who want to do damage from afar. Dark Magic is more focused on crowd control abilities and various other “utility” spells, and is best mixed with other primary attacks. Daedric Summoning consists mainly of summoning and defensive spells, which can make it more viable with smaller Magicka pools, allowing more opportunity to use non-staff weapons and heavier armor.
