Sorcery DPS build?

brfabeirasbrfabeiras Posts: 182 Arc User
How viable a DPS using only Sorcery powers is? If it's viable, what powers should I pick?
Is it better to choose a specific theme (Darkness, Infernal, etc), or mixing powers?
@flowcyto could you help me out? :)

    Sorcery is a fine set to make a dps build from. Its a solid, versatile powerset overall. It'll kinda depend if you want to dps form >50ft or not, as adding in Hex gives it higher dps, but is limited to 50ft (and you can also use Skarn's for AoE, though its also 50ft limited). A long-range version should prob just use the Wisp from Infernal SN to boost Soul Beam, and Star Barrage for 100ft AoE. Here's a long-range dps version, for reference:

    Vindicator: Merciless (3/3)
    Vindicator: Focused Strikes (3/3)
    Vindicator: Mass Destruction (2/3)
    Mastery: Intelligence Mastery (1/1)

    (not an early-leveling build, which could take Eld Blast temporarily and retrain out of it later)

    The last few powers slots can be w/e ya want. DEX/Int Con or EGO/Int/Con (still w/ an Int focus) could also work for the SS setup here. Pretty straightforward to play: use Wisp on cd for debuffs/buffs and Conjuring, Soul Beam for Single targets, and Star Barrage for AoE. Gears mostly for Int, w/ some Con and Dex.

    Wouldn't it be better to have Cursed on Wisp for the magic debuff?
    (Hopefully) Useful CO Resources: HeroCreator (character planner), Cosmic Timers/Alert Checklist, Blood Moon Map, Anniversary Cat Map, and more (eventually, anyway).

    Oh, yeah I grabbed the wrong adv there. Meant to get the hexed one. I'll fix that in the post.
