Sorcerer Leveling Build

This is a Build used specifically for leveling your Sorcerer. It centers around doing massive AoE damage to clear enemies quickly while leveling and getting gear for your main Build.

Leveling Builds are a great way to expedite your character to finish the campaign and reach level 50. From there, you can work on setting your Sorcerer up with optimal armor and weapons for your preferred Build to prepare for the more challenging levels.


  • Arc Lash – a quick hitting Skill that will give you Mana and help you move quicker.
  • Chain Lightning – your main source of damage.
  • Teleport – your main source of mobility.
  • Ice Armor – gives a huge barrier to help with survivability.
  • Frost Nova – helps keep you safe by Freezing all enemies close to you, while also making them Vulnerable.
  • Unstable Currents – gives a huge damage boost while it’s active.


Once you unlock your Key Passive, you’ll want to get Vyr’s Mastery, as it will help your damage and survivability.

Passives to pick up while leveling:

  • Elemental Attunement, Align the Elements, Mana Shield, Protection, and Electrocution will increase your survivability.
  • Elemental Dominance, Glass Cannon, and Coursing Currents will boost your damage.
  • Devastation – will give you more Mana.

Enchantment Slots

Once unlocked, you will want to put the following Skills into your Enchantment Slots:

  • Fireball – will greatly increase your AoE potential.
  • Chain Lightning – gives free casts of Chain Lightning.

What’s Next

Once you reach level 50, you can start working towards an endgame Build: these Builds focus on being able to survive and clear endgame content. You can either make adjustments to this Build to make one focused around Chain Lightning, or you can respec your character entirely to start working towards a completely different Build you like.
