Magicka Sorcerer Pet PVE Build – Overlord

Magicka Sorcerer Pet PVE

Table of Contents


Overlord is an easy Magicka Sorcerer Pet PVE Build. The idea behind the build is to let your pets do the hard work for you while you are supporting them with additional damage. Your Pets can DPS, draw aggro and even heal you making this build capable of completing hard solo and group PVE content.

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

For a non-Pet Magicka Sorcerer PVE Build, take a look at Stormborn.

You can find more Builds in the Sorcerer Builds page.
