Description

Baelnorn is a Sorcerer Vampire PVE Build for Solo and Group gameplay. This Magicka Sorcerer PVE Build is utilizing the Vampire skill-line and is optimized for Vampire Stage 3.

Baelnorn combines the Sorcerer’s Pets and Skills with Vampire active and passive abilities to allow you to complete almost every PVE content.

For a non Vampire Magicka Sorcerer PVE Build you can take a look at Stormborn or Overlord. If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Sorcerer Beginner Guide.

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