Welcome to my Magicka Sorcerer build for Dragon Bones patch. This build is aimed at End-Game PvE content but works as it is on basic overland content.
Here you can find info on how to setup your attributes, what gear you should use, how to set your skill bars and champion points.
Max Magicka: 38000 – 45000
Max Health: 16000 – 18000
Max Stamina: 9000 – 11000
Spell Damage: 2300 – 3700
Spell Critical: 40 – 60 %
64 Magicka, 0 Health, 0 Stamina
What weapon trait should I choose?
Infused is the go to choice if you only wanna push higher damage on single target.
Nirnhoned is the best choice overall and provides best balance between both AOE and single target damage.
Recommended choice is to go Infused on Main Hand and Nirnhoned on Backup Hand Weapon.
Don’t have access to some of the recommended gear or want to use something else? Here’s other options you can go with such as:
You can switch Ilambris to Valkyn Skoria.
You can use Julianos instead of Mechanical Acuity.
You can switch Moondancer to Infallible Aether or Willpower.
If you don’t have access to Maelstrom Staff, use random staff with specific trait and enchantment instead.
Item Set Info:
Empowered Ward, Crystal Fragments, Inner Light, Force Pulse, Bound Aegis, Greater Storm Atronach
Mages Wrath, Elemental Blockade, Liquid Lightning, Haunting Curse, Bound Aegis, Elemental Rage
You can switch around the places of abilities as long as you keep the same abilities on same bars. However you can switch places with Empowered Ward and Mages Wrath if you want to have your shield on back bar and execute on front bar.
Greater Storm Atronach to Shooting Star
Re-morph Force Pulse to Crushing Shock
Inner Light to Power Surge
If you’re new to the game or Sorcerer class in general, I suggest you to read carefully what the different abilities do, how much they cost, whats their duration, cast time etc. so you understand how you should rotate your abilities and how they work.
