Basic tips

The Sorceress class is a high DPS class but is low in HP for the most part. It’s basically the standard wizard spellcaster of other games. In order to get the most out of the sorceress, you will want to focus your upgrades around a single element. For example, maxing out all fire will give you more damage faster than a balanced approach with all elements lower damage.

You’ll also want to take full advantage of the teleport ability as well if you can. These movement spells allow you to act as offense and defense at the same time because you can avoid attacks while setting up other ones.

The Sorceress also has enchantments that you can add to attacks. For example, the Hydra summons a dragon that spits fire at enemies. If you put this skill into the enchantment slot, you will summon an extra head for every burning enemy a hydra kills. This essentially doubles up your attack for each enemy exponentially. If you choose a ice build instead, ice bolts or shards will be summoned by themselves and automatically attack enemies already frozen.

So, the Sorceress is an extremely well-rounded offensive attacker, but you’ll need to balance defense as well. Even with the high DPS, you’ll quickly find yourself in the jackpot without a proper build.
