There are loads of mages out there, but what I want to know is the different builds, the ones that aren't just a sorcerer, light armour and a destruction staff.


Gone to a better MMO, soz guys, it was fun.

Tanky Sorc build that mainly uses 2-handed weapons. Lightning Form, Bound Armor, summons, and Dark Exchange.

I'm going all out crazy and doing something that no one else appears to be doing in ESO launch. I'm gonna play pure-blood Sorcerer style
Sorc, 2 handed damage staff, with light/medium armour and sticking distanced DPS (and heals when swapping out staff)

It's shocking I know what with the whole fashion of heavy armour sorc in pre-launch.

You're not alone. Seems with ESO lots of mixed builds are popping out. I for one am a traditional mmorpg player hence i'm also sticking to the cliche Tanker/Healer/DPS builds.

Despite how good hybrid sounds, i still feel cookie cutter holy trinity build is still the optimal build when played in a party and will be highly sought after. Hybrid builds seem more of a solo build or a fill in the party build. No offense to anyone.

I've always loved the hybrid builds in MMOs. I played inquisicar cleric in Rift and I did very decent damage while blowing full speced healers out of the water.

I'm planning on making a light/medium armor sorc. For weapons I'm going to keep duel swords, a bow, a destruction and resto staff on me. I'll switch between the weapons depending on the situation at hand.

I'll be a sorcerer who who does whatever the heck I feel like. That sword is sweet looking, let's give that a go. It's one of the reasons i dislike traditional MMO's. I end up finding something extraordinary, but it seems to always be for another class than I am.

Which is more difficult: To do as you wish? Or to have power and choose not to?

There are different builds for sure. I don't think any good sorc will only play the light armor/caster type because there are just better builds suited for different situations. A high mobility healer or tank loaded with cc could probably more or as much as a dps sorc.

If you go medium armour, keep a full set of it, and add magicka regen enchantment on the parts. Only if you plant to go 3/2 for example, worth to split the armour sets to light.

I have decided to be cookie cutter in my first sorc build because everything I have tried until now in beta indicates that will be pretty powerful. It does take away from randomness in char but synergies really do have an effect on gameplay. I am going Dumner light armor with resto in one slot and desto in other. One ranged class skill with points poured in. Heavy on all applicable passives. The 5 slot toolbar is the largest factor in my decision. Since we only have the 10 slots I am being choosy of what skills I put into those slots. It can be fun to have points all over but at some point it becomes a waste.
