Sorcerer

Overview

Sorcerers are masters of offensive and aggressive magic. They have only limited healing abilities, but can draw from a wide range of attack spells. Through the ages, they have focused their research on destructive magic to aide them in battle.

Because of their focus on magical abilities, they are sorely lacking in physical skills, and have little physical strength to carry items and equipment.

Tips and Tricks

All vocations should use their strengths to their own benefit. For example, it would be useless for a knight to try and make money selling runes. Instead, use the unique aspects of the vocation to your advantage.

Making Money

  • Sell Runes. Sorcerers can make large amounts of money as a Provider of various kinds of runes, especially Fireball and Great Fireball. Sorcerers are also the only vocation that can make Sudden Death runes. Because of the high level requirement to make them, Sudden Death runes can sell for very large amounts of money.
  • Offer an Hell's Core or Rage of the Skies service. Since Sorcerers have very strong attack spells, when you reach the level requirement for the Hell's Core or Rage of the Skies spell, you will become very valuable on a large hunt or quest. With this spell Rage of the Skies it is even possible to kill a Dragon with one cast, and the spell will attack all creatures in a large area. Even helping with a quest that you have already completed, you can charge a large amount of money to help a group complete the quest.
  • Summon creatures for others to convince. You can charge a fee for summoning creatures for a paladin to convince. Since paladins cannot use the Summon Creature spell, you can summon a creature for them, and if they have enough mana, they can use a Convince Creature rune to take control over it and use it to help them hunt.

Gaining Experience

  • Use a blocker. This way you can hunt larger creatures that you would not normally be able to take on alone. This will most likely cost you quite a bit in Runes, and you may need to pay the blocker for their services, but you will gain more experience than would otherwise be possible.
  • Hunt with Summoned Creatures. When hunting with summons, you do not need to use as many runes, and you can stay in your hunting area longer because you are not using as much mana with your Wand.
  • Use Defensive Fighting when you are hunting with Wands. Changing your fighting mode will not affect the damage that your wands will cause, but using Defensive Fighting will cause you to take less damage from any melee attacks.
  • Use your surroundings. Since most Wands cannot attack as far away as a Bow or Crossbow that Paladins use, sorcerers need to use trees, stairs, and other obstacles to help maintain a distance from strong creatures. With some practice, you will be able to fight strong creatures without taking very much damage.

Advancing Your Skills

Magic Level

  • Never have full mana. Your Magic Level is advanced by using mana. Every second that you have full mana, you are losing potential magic level advancement.
  • Spend as little time as possible in Protection Zones. You cannot use mana that you do not generate, so spend as little time as possible in situations where you do not regenerate mana.
  • Always eat. Make sure you have access to Food at all times. If you run out of food, then you will not be able to regenerate mana for using.
  • Use Wands to hunt. Using wands uses mana. A Master Sorcerer can regenerate mana as fast as the Wand of Vortex will use it, so they can potentially "train" their magic level by attacking creatures with this wand.
  • Use your melee weapon when gaining Soul Points. You need only to kill one monster every 4 minutes, so you are not worried about killing monsters quickly. This frees up your mana for spells and you can use up your mana completely if you wish to train your magic level. The only time to use your wand is for leveling, otherwise best train your melee skill since you can use spells to use up mana.
  • Carry Mana Potions. Not only is this a good idea if you get in a jam, but using Mana Potions will help you advance your Magic Level faster.
  • Don't use Magic Shield if you don't need to. Any mana that you lose to your Magic Shield does not count towards your magic level. If you are not in danger of dieing, use Light Healing, Intense Healing and Ultimate Healing spells instead.
