Sorcerers are like the bombers in the army, they provide the big punches that can really destroy Mobs or Bosses, and they do it from a comfortable distance. This is a really fun character to play if you like blowing things up.
As part of a group, you will be strongly desired for your offensive capabilities. Sorcerers are capable of both area attacks and targeted attacks. This means that you will be very useful in both making it through the dungeon, but also essential in taking the Bosses down. Fireball is a base offensive skill that you will start with that will be with you as you level up through the game. A simple spell, Fireball is a quick cast and can be used to finish off monsters that are close to death.
Magma Bomb will be your first available area damage skill, and will be invaluable to your early Boss and Mob gold farming. As you level up you will need to upgrade this skill as it is a cheap way to cause damage within a small area. Combined with Painful Trap, which will form a circle around you and explode when an enemy comes too close, you will be able to play offense while defending your position at the same time. This is a great way to start accumulated better equipment and level up your Sorcerer, which will, in turn, lead to more riches as your quality of prey improves.
Pain Blast is another skill to utilize when you hit level fourteen. This area damage spell will really start to add the damage up as you move up in levels, and can be deadly to large groups of enemies or Mobs you encounter. This skill will hit enemies every 2 seconds for ten seconds, which means you can be delivering other damage to them while this spell still works. This is key to understanding how to be a juggernaut Sorcerer. Stack your attacks on top of each other to deliver devastating amounts of punishment to your foe, ending battles quickly.
Soloing with a Sorcerer is going to be a real challenge initially. It is not recommended as an efficient way to collect TERA gold, as you will struggle to deal with the fact that you are not very good at surviving attacks. It can be done, using spells such as Back Step, which will instantly catapult you five meters away from the monster attacking you. There are also a number of traps that your sorcerer can cast, use these after aggroing mobs and lead them to their deaths in large numbers. This is one way you will be able to escape the quick death that attempting to stand toe to toe with monsters will produce with a Sorcerer.
This means that making the most gold with a Sorcerer comes down to being able to play as a team member. You will be a really valuable one, and you will find some great loot for your character while you are at it. As you reach the higher levels, Fire Blast is a small area damage spell that will cause massive amounts of damage. Use this to strike large Mobs on the way to Bosses and clear the path for your group with a blazed earth policy. Do not forget that you are very lightly armored with a simple robe so you will need to keep your distance from the fight.
