Stamina Sorcerer PVE Build

Tempest is a strong Stamina Sorcerer DPS PVE Build that relies on Shock Damage to clear almost every PVE content in the game! Tempest is using shock damage based skills but also a few Pets to deal massive damage and provide utility to the group. If you like the idea of a Shock based warrior that can also command Pets in combat, then Tempest is the perfect Build for you!

An excellent Build to farm areas with many groups of enemies that can be very effective against single targets as well. The Build offers different setups, depending on the type of gear you wish to wear!

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Sorcerer Beginner Guide. For a Two Handed Stamina Sorcerer PVE Build take a look at Wrecker.

If you are looking for a Solo PVE Build for Arenas like the Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows, take a look at my Stamina Sorcerer Solo Build.

You can find more Builds in the Sorcerer Builds page.
