The sorcerer strikes and evades and strikes again, flanking the foe, leaping out of danger, playing a game of position. With only sorcerous robes for protection, staying out of the way of attacks is of paramount importance, and dealing massive amounts of damage in a spectacular fashion is all in a day's work for this explosive player class.
Warriors of the intellect, sorcerers are at their best when they stand apart, watch for vulnerability, then make their foes pay dearly for it.
In battle, you play a game of position with the foe, finding the best line through your opponents, the best spot from which to strike, the best moment . . . and then smiting. If that sounds fun, roll up a sorcerer!
The sorcerer smites foes with magic focused through an arcane disk that leaps and whirls as it shapes and augments the sorcerer's innate power to destroy foes. Whether fire, ice, traps or curses, the disk channels raw magical power from the sorcerer into targeted attacks and spectacular area of effect skills.
The sorcerer's only armor is the robes, gloves, and shoes of an arcanist. They do not provide a great deal of protection against attacks, so the ability to flank and dodge during combat can make the difference between a live sorcerer and a dead one, particularly while soloing.
Sorcerers burn their foes with fire, freeze them with ice, and blast them with pulses of arcane energy. They set traps of explosive power and traps of pure killing agony. They recharge the mana spent in combat, and are soon ready to fight again. Their unbridled killing clout makes them indispensable to any party of adventurers.
Sorcerers are artillery. They deliver power against a target, either with pinpoint accuracy or in punishing barrages. Sorcerers shorten any fight, clearing out minor threats quickly with area-of-effect attacks or doing massive damage to large foes with targeted skills. They can also provide covering fire, slowing down the enemy or blunting an attack so that healers can do their jobs and melee fighters can maneuver more easily. Sorcerers may not be as flexible as other classes, but when you're in a knife fight it's awfully nice to have brought along a gun.
