    oh yeah my bad, 10.5 on UMD.
    Ok thanks for clarifying about balance. Thought it was a strictly must max stat..

    Will probably go 8 int and 18 con.

    do i only have to give up 1 skill pt. on concentration to get Tumble? 0.5 tumble is ok to be able to boost it later on right?

    Thanks alot.

    of course, if you don't mind using scrolls (or having the spell), you could just rely on the spell for your tumble-related needs.

    I would like to advise people to read this only as a reference and not as a guide. I made several mistakes on my build because i blinded done all it comanded me to.

    Possibly because it's severely outdated and the author has explicitly stated as such.
    Once I get my moods under control, I might actually get a character past level 7... ooh, shiny!

    Paladins got some love! Now for Warpriests...

    and yet, i wouldn't be surprised if a single feat swap pretty much resolved all the supposed problems with your build (for the record, you can still have a damn good sorcerer by following this guide exactly, with a bit of tweaking for the new elemental lines, it just won't be a savant).

    yeah pretty simply -just make sure you have empower or maximize by level 6 and you can get your PrE - then get Spell Focus:Evocation (maybe Conjuration for Earth Savant but most people will switch out of before level 16 or so on most builds due to lack of high level spells for acid). Other than that max Cha - Int to 12(or 14 if you really like balance) and Str for carrying stuff (and not getting enfeebled).

    The guide is good for structuring your build. Everything else is fixable with a buy of spell swaps over a few days and/or an enhancement respec which are both cheap.

    Enjoy your blasting - I am.

    I was wondering what to do. What is better to get with Enhantements? Max some prestige class like earth Savanth or max all the elements without prestige class?

    Whenever I do a search, I specify 3-6 months or newer. It's silly to blame an OP of a post that's a year or more old - any MMO changes too much for that.

    Is that why you're responding to a post from September? (sorry, couldn't resist. )

    This thread does need a serious update though, two new races, new prestiges, spell point and enhancement changes, and extend being nerfed into near-uselessness makes it less than useful.
    It was the night before Hogswatch....

    Feel free to write it up and either post it here, or PM it to me. I would be happy to include changes, I just don't have the time to do it myself. I also haven't played for a long, long time (something like 2 years) so I don't have the in-game knowledge to back up anything I might say.

    Anybody that wants to write it up will of course be given credit.

    Another useful race for sorcerer is half elf,since they get an get the extra feat for cleric dilliante.That makes it much easier on the umd.

    You've necro-ed a 3-year-old thread.

    Half-elf didn't exist when it was written. Heck, Elemental Savants didn't either!

    There are more up-to-date Sorc guides out there. I looked at
    http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=361303
    when I was planning my first Sorc life. Even it is a year old now, without anything about all the Epic stuff that came with the expansion pack, though it's still a decent guide if you were just going to level to 20 and TR.

    Preserving this for posterity. This convinced me to play a Sorcerer. Now that I have, I want to be a Wizard instead. It's more my style, it seems, considering what's happened in the past few (~3) years.

    Odd that I would check this now, and see none other than Endarire commenting on it less than a month ago. Fancy that. I know you from BG and MinMax.

    I think this post was EXTREMELY helpful. People in DDO don't understand that there's a pool of beginners who'd love this information. SO don't listen to these old cranky seniors ;D +1

    Uh, all the information is outdated though. And I mean completely outdated, not even a little bit not outdated.

    There's a good reason for that. I haven't played DDO in something like 4 years. I just like to come back and haunt my old stomping grounds, now and then. Maybe get a forum infraction point or two while I'm at it.
