One Bar Magicka Sorcerer DPS Build

One Bar Magicka Sorcerer DPS

A fun and strong One Bar Magicka Sorcerer DPS Build for Solo and Group Gameplay! The build is using the Oakensoul Ring Mythic Item to boost its damage and capabilities! Thanks to the buffs from this ring, we can focus only on offensive skills and achieve great damage with this one bar build!

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

For a traditional Magicka Sorcerer PVE Build, you can take a look at Overlord.

You can find more Builds in the Sorcerer Builds page.
