View Full Version : Need Build Ideas for a Sorcerer

Hi, I'm on my way to grab the completionist feat and after I reach 20 with my druid (which will happen in like a day or so) I will start a new life as a Sorcerer (I prefer the Eldritch Knight but I'm open to other ideas).

So as I was saying I'm collecting Past Life feats and I currently have ALL the Specialist PL's, the Paladin and Barbarian, the wizard and soon the druid, all of them as a 3x stack.
I'm looking at the Sorcerer now and I need ideas since I see so many ways to go and more ways for it to go horribly wrong.
I have access to all races (and classes) and all iconics but I won't touch the Iconics at all yet since I'm mainly tapping out at level 20.
I prefer pure classes since I'm also rating the play experience for my final class (and I will probably settle on the Warlock when and if it arrives even if it sucks since THAT is my favorite D&D class of all time and I've played all versions of the D&D ruleset and variants from other publishers).

As I already stated I really like the Eldritch Knight tree but wouldn't know where to begin to tie that into the sorcerer (I did not go EK for the Wizard life, I went Palemaster+Harper for that), but I am open to any suggestions.

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

fire/acid savant, pickup offensive spells and just blast your way through every quest

Pretty much what Vallrad said except consider fire/air over fire/acid because air has some nice utility stuff like the "wings" effect and no knockdown.
Fire has the best AOE damage output though and if you intend to at all touch epics then Fire is the way to go. Also despite a lot of people saying that you need to get rid of fire in vale, this isn't really true as you are mostly fighting non-devils in the actual quests.

For my sorcerer I did a pure Fire adamant body WF with a few points in EK to get the PRR from shield and to drop my ASF down other than that though EK is pretty week and Melee sorcs are not very strong.

I might go into epic level with sorcerer but I do not know since I do not know how that class plays.

Do one of these and never worry about sp, and never stop to shrine.

What weapons do you recommend for a Toaster build using the second one with the monk levels if it's not headed past level 20?

I've never quite experienced such a disconnect in a character class as I'm finding in the Toaster. I mean sure it's fun to blast things, but that's ALL he does. I might just go for the one PL on the sorcerer since this is not a nice feeling.

Fire savant until vale, then switch to Acid. Use barbarian sprint boost and ride those quests like you stole them.
