Hello DDO Forums, I'm new to the game (playing for about three weeks now) and am thinking of making a Sorcerer. I know that Concentration is essential, but it occurred to me that I could pick up Quicken Spell at level 1 and, when under attack, just switching that on and either CC'ing or running around and blasting them till they're dead.
The reason for picking up Quicken Spell rather than raising my Concentration is because I'd like to put as many points into UMD as possible, that way I'd be able to heal with wands and scrolls as well as use magical abilities from wands and scrolls I wouldn't normally have access to because of my limited spell selection as a Sorcerer.
As far as race and stats I was thinking of choosing a Drow and going with the following:
Skills, I plan on putting 4 into Balance and UMD, giving me a +3 in Bal to start and a +6 in UMD.
Please let me know your thoughts on this initial selection, and let me know if there is a way that I would be able to have a nice UMD as well as Concentration, because I realize how much SP Quicken Spell would eat up. Thanks in advance!
