An easy to use 1 Bar Magicka Sorcerer Solo Build. The build is designed to utilize one only Skill-bar and can help you complete almost every PVE content in The Elder Scrolls Online. From the easiest Overworld to the hardest Solo gameplay like Veteran Maelstrom and Vateshran Hollows Arenas.

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Sorcerer Beginner Guide.
