NEXT LEVEL
MAGICKA SORCERER

PURPOSE

This is a super strong Magicka Sorcerer PVE build that uses NO trial or mythic gear and only THREE or FOUR buttons capable of parsing over 100k DPS! This will be a perfect step to push yourself out of your comfort zone with bar swapping.  2 abilities on the front bar, 1 or 2 on the back bar, a static rotation, and infinite sustain, the perfect middle ground between a 1 bar build and a complicated full 2 bar trial set up.
