"Sorcerers summon and control weather phenomenon: hurling lightning bolts and creating electrified fields, summoning tornadoes and impenetrable fog, and calling upon Daedric forces to summon Storm Atronachs and magical armor."
―In-game description[src]

The Sorcerer is one of six playable classes in The Elder Scrolls Online. It is the only class capable of summoning daedric combat pets and teleporting.

Sorcerers are more suited for dealing high amounts of damage and shielding themselves from damage with conjured wards. Sorcerer attacks are generally lightning based.

  • The Sorcerer is good for ranged players, as the high offense, yet relatively low defense generally keeps the player at least a few meters away from the enemy.
  • The Sorcerer is good for players wishing to play any sort of Battlemage class, merging high-damage spells with a one-handed weapon.
  • The Sorcerer is the class least recommended for new players, as it is the hardest, but very beneficial, to learn fully. The low defense, yet high offense, can fit very well with players that learn how to use the playstyle correctly.
  • The ability to summon creatures in combat can be used to keep distance between the player and the enemy, and in the most dangerous situations, the teleportation ability may be used to avoid large sums of damage.
  • The Overload ability is one of the highest damage-dealing abilities in the game. Although it is an ultimate ability, it can still be used often due to its low ultimate cost.
