Sorceress Class

The Sorceress is a magic caster that stays behind and pummels enemies with frost, fire, and lightning spells. They deal ranged elemental-based magic with high DPS and stay on her toes for quick mobility. Her abilities make her perfect for dealing with large crowds. Sorceress’s low health has to be considered when engaging, but her abilities and mobility allow her to go on the back foot, assess the situation, and come back harder.

Identity Skills

Sorceress’s Identity skill is her Arcane Meter. This meter can be tapped as pleased with varying degrees of usage. The Arcane meter gets used up with each of the following abilities so use it strategically.

  • Blink: This allows her to move instantly or teleport to a location within a 15-meter distance. Great for moving away from difficult situations.
  • Arcane rupture or Arcane torrent: Arcane Rupture can be activated when the meter is at 30% and Arcane Torrent at 100%. Arcane Rupture puts her in a Magick Enhanced State, which deals greater damage, and gives Push Immunity Super Armor, which prevents any knockback. If you let the meter reach 100% then you can activate the Arcane Torrent, this has the same effects as Rupture with the added advantage of more elemental damage and faster casting and cooldown of spells.


Reflux: This engraving takes away the Arcane Rupture or Torrent states and only Blink is usable, on top of that it gives a boost to spell cooldowns and damage. This engraving, once equipped, will impact the whole tripod and skill combination you have on and everything needs to be rearranged to better serve this engraving. And since it takes away such an integral part of her the best usage of this engraving is only when it reaches level 3, before that it’s pretty lackluster.

Igniter: Now this engraving is more up her ally. It lets her keep the Arcane States and compliments it with cutting down the cooldown times in half, critical rate and critical damage are considerably boosted and her overall damage potential in the Magick Amplification state is even more refined. This engraving is likely the no-brainer for most as it plays to her strengths.

Best Skills and Tripods

Sorceress’s Skills are elemental based with each one having a specific purpose, Fire is for high damage and burning enemies, Frost is for slowing down enemies, and Lightening is for stunning enemies. Each one of these elements has a role to play on the battlefield so it’s best advised that a mix of spells should be equipped.
