Class Overview

Pure Power

Sorcerers aren't concerned with subtlety or misdirection. They don't spend a lot of time waiting for their enemies to line up for a perfect shot; instead they clear out minor threats quickly with area-of-effect attacks and deal massive damage to large foes with targeted skills.

Ground Zero

Sorcerers are deadly from anywhere on the battlefield. They strike, evade, and strike again, playing a game of position few classes can match. Massive damage is their primary defense, weakening foes with a variety of effects and then destroying them without a second thought.

Disc-overy

The sorcerer's disc is the conduit for their will, transforming intellect into sheets of flame, icy spheres, and even pure explosive energy. The spinning disc focuses, reinforces, and redirects each spell precisely where it's needed.

Precision Planning

While meteor strikes, lightning blasts, and ice storms have their place, sorcerers also have lock-on skills to drain and weaken their foes, as well as charging attacks to build power for an even bigger boom. Ignore sorcerers in battle at your peril—there's so many ways for them to destroy you!
