Template Build: Sorceress

This build is going for AOE DPS, as such your top three stats will be:

Intelligence = adds to magic damage
Wounds = adds to Hit Points
Initiative/Willpower - This is a toss up here, you can go Willpower for caster disruption or go Initiative to lower the crit % against you.

The 25 points will be placed as follows: (There will be a few extra points from RvR rewards, however we will not use them here)

15 in "Destruction"
Buy the following skills in the Destruction tree for one point each:
Black Horror
Disastrous Cascade
Shadow Knives
Paralyzing Nightmare

Skills in the tree you do not buy: "Piercing Shadows", "Lengthening Shadows" and "Never ending Agony".

The last 6 points will be put in "Agony". Any additional points should also be placed in "Agony", there is no reason to buy the bottom or second to the bottom skill in the tree.

80 RvR points to be placed in:

Acumen level 1 = 1 point
Acumen level 2 = 3 points
Acumen level 3 = 6 points
Acumen level 4 = 10 points
Acumen level 5 = 14 points

Resolve level 1 = 1 point
Resolve level 2 = 3 points

Sage level 1 = 2 points
Sage level 2 = 4 points
Sage level 3 = 6 points

Focused Power level 1 = 5 points
Focused Power level 2 = 10 points
Focused Power level 3 = 15 points

The purpose of this build is to put out the best AOE DPS possible.

Here are the planned active morale skills:

Level 1 = Dire Blast
Level 2 = Siphon Power
Level 3 = Darkstar Cloak
Level 4 = Paralyzing Nightmares

Slotted Tactics can be changed "on the fly", as long as you are not in combat. Since there are 5 quick slots available, I would set each set to a different use. One for PvP fight, one for PvP heal, one for PvE Group, and one for PvE solo. Here is my set for a "PvP fight":

Umbral Fury(if in group) Endless Knowledge (if solo)
Increased Pain
Glorious Carnage
Triumphant Blasting

Build Strength:


Best AOE DPS in the game, your enemy will notice it and so will your group. This build gets real ugly if you start getting a decent amount of crits: every crit knocks the enemy back(Triumphant Blasting) AND gives you 200 point morale bonus.( Glorious Carnage) This build puts out a lot of DPS, gets a lot of kills, always scores near the top in the PvP damage,(In PvP scenarios) and makes you a menace to the enemy.

Build Weakness:

Glorious build right? Well you have to pay for all that uberness: Your backlash will be common and noticeable, so it is necessary to keep a healer nearby. You will not be as good against single targets. PvE is going to suffer a little as you cannot mass AOE PvE mobs, this is because you will get a ton of agro and no healer can heal you faster then five to seven mobs can drop you.(You will need to really chill-out in PvE) This build will be a little better if your Sorc has the Apothecary trade-skill as heal pots will help against the backlash.

wow nice, i personally have seen how well an AOE sorc does in scenario's compared to the other classes, and if u've got a nice group with alot of other people distracting the enemy, the damage that the sorc can dish out is immense!
