Notes About This Class

  • With 15 Attunement and 15 Intelligence, the Sorcerer has exactly one option and that is to cast sorcery. This is the starting class best suited to using sorceries as early as possible, and best suited to builds that use only sorcery and nothing else.
  • This class starts with the lowest Resistance among all classes. This is not actually a good thing, since your starting Resistance does not affect your level in any way, so all it really means is you'll have slightly less defense compared to other builds of your level.

 

Builds That Use This Class

  • While this class can technically use the same 50 Vitality, 16 Attunement, 40 Endurance, 10 Strength, 40 Dexterity, 32 Intelligence build that the Wanderer can at level 125, it is actually slightly less optimal with it due to the lower Resistance. With 0 Humanity the difference is 5 fewer points in defense, and with 99 Humanity the difference is 1 less point in defense.
  • As can be expected from a class called the Sorcerer, it is in fact the best for builds focused solely on sorcery or weapons that scale with Intelligence like the Moonlight Greatsword. With 50 Vitality, 16+ Attunement, 40 Endurance, 16 Strength, and 50 Intelligence, you too can be a mighty wizard with magical lasers and a giant sword made of moonlight.

      Key to being a pure sorcerer build is distance, stealth and well placed unsuspecting magic attacks. The best melee weapon I can suggest right off the start is the Jagged Ghost blade, it dose a LOT of damage and makes short work of up close enemies. You can get the dagger very quickly and early by first boosting your liquid humanity to 10, get the homeward bones from the secret spot under the elevator from the undead church to firelink shrine, head to new Londo, get the transit cure and begin farming. (Also, be sure to get The Wolf Ring ASAP for poise.) Be sure your intelligence is over 20 and you have heavy soul arrow, you can one shot the ghosts and if they don’t drop the knife, they will drop more transit curses. I’m able to get the jagged blade in 1-2 runs using this tactic. Two spells I highly recommend getting ASAP is the Distraction Spell and Hidden Body. The distraction spell works on just about all enemies and even some bosses, you can use this to keep them off you and spell spam them to death. It works WONDERS for the Capra demon battle. Hidden body is very useful for the catacombs and especially getting around those wheel skeletons. Also, you can run up with your ghost blade and assassinate the necromancers. Anyway...just a few tactics I use for my pure sorcerer class runs. Only downside I have is lightning...I should really look into getting that Occult Shield.

        My favorite class all around! In DS1, first thing I do is choose the master key a just make a mad run for blight town. From blight town I go straight to ash lake, make a run for the great stone dragon, gain the dragon headstone, become half dragon and now fun begins! I use firebreath when I run out of magic and...it's sort of a nice look! Only downside is watching my character drink estus...through his neck...like an idiot. I hope they fix this in the Remastered Version.
