The Elder Scrolls Online is going to be a long game with its promised level cap of 50. Players everywhere will be racing to level up as quickly as they can once the game is finally released. There will be four distinct classes to choose once getting into the game, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Let’s take a look at the best way to level up for the sorcerer class.
Classes can be played in whichever way they want in the Elder Scrolls Online. Players decide for themselves what type of weapons they want to use, what type of armor they want to use, and what class skill trees they want to use, so there will be numerous ways to play. However, the sorcerer fulfills the classic glass cannon role seen in previous MMORPGs, and many players will find that playstyle the most beneficial to them. The term glass cannon was chosen for casting classes because they can dish out a lot of damage just like a cannon, but to balance things out, they generally have low health and armor as if they’re as fragile as glass.
The sorcerer will be given three skill trees to choose from upon starting the game: Daedric Summoning to summon familiars, Dark Magic for utility, and Storm Calling to dish out lightning damage. They’ll also be given a choice of armor skill trees to choose from as well as weapon skill trees. It is true that a sorcerer can use any weapon they like, but choosing a weapon like the bow or destruction staff is a good choice because it will allow the caster to stay safe and far away from their enemies, which is what many of their class skills will be doing as well.
The destruction staff seems to be the most ideal because it will allow players to do damage from a distance like the bow, but it will also give players the ability to stun or knockback enemies that get too close with its first active ability called Destructive touch. Getting that spell first will give the player the ability to dish out extra damage while staying alive simultaneously. After that, it’d be good to get the first active ability in one of the three sorcerer skill trees: Mage’s Fury, Crystal Shard, or Unstable Familiar, just so they’ll be able to output even more damage, as Sorcerers can be fairly weak in the early portion of the game. Later on, choosing light armor is a great choice for spellcasters, as its armor skill path will give players bonuses to their magicka and spell line, so remember to drop skill points in that to strengthen your more active skill choices. Cycle between armor, weapon, and your chosen class line based upon what type of trouble you’re having. If you’re not doing enough damage, get something to increase it. If you’re having trouble surviving, get a skill with a bit more utility.
Just remember that sorcerers can play in whatever way they choose. The above guide was just a recommendation based upon how many people will want to play the game, as it is a familiar role to anyone who’s had experience playing past MMORPGs.
