UPDATED for patch 1.6 currently on the PTS (not final). I will change the skills again and give opinions on them once this becomes final.
Welcome to our ESO Sorcerer Skills Guide. Utterly unique and special, the Sorcerer’s abilities are truly magnificent to use and even witness. The combination of interesting, relevant builds are staggering due to the classes design. In part two of our series, we delve into these skills, discuss my morph selections, and explain how I use them. Let’s get started!
