Why ESO Update 41 is expected to be a renaissance for PVP Sorcerer?
For those who are tired of magical boredom in recent PVP fights, we hope you can hear this little whisper in your enchanted ear because game-changers have been rolled out by the ESO Public Test Server (PTS) patch of Update 41. Let's explore this update's mystical tapestry that will revive our slinging strategies.
↖ Sorcerer-Specific Changes
- Status Effect Buffs: All status effects have been powered up by developers with some direct damage ones like Concuss and Chilled getting serious upgrade. The Poison effect now has an execute mechanic i.e. a boon for builds focused on doing damage.
- Crushing Shock: Status effect revamp significantly favors this core sorcerer skill; however, this is not limited to them; all ranged magicka builds will notice more power behind their spam attacks.
- Set Synergies: Even better choices include Asylum Destro staff plus sets such as Draugr's Rest which work well with status effects. Charged trait has merged down but still stays as number one contender when you think about boosting your status effect efficiency.
↖ Class-Wide Adjustments
- Nightblade Tweaks: Incapacitating Strike gets a damage boost, as well as increased debuff duration and Killer's Blade however Nightblades may be forced to change their stealth tactics due to changes made to Killer's Blade. Siphoning Strikes may change the build for sustain-oriented players since it now costs health to gain resources instead of granting them freely.
- Warden Wins: Northern Storm has had its buff transformed into a warm front for wardens and now does more damage while also having a new ramping mechanic for weapon and spell damage.
- Necromancer Nudges: Necromancers could be confused by Blastbones changes. It is now more of a self-buff than a PVP powerhouse.
- Master Dual Wield Nerf: This set no longer increases flat damage; instead, it scales with weapon and spell power. Equipments choices should be strategic from now on.
↖ Sorcerer-Specific Changes
- Encase Evolution: Vibrant Shroud is the new face of this once useless root that provides an AoE heal, with minor vitality to allies – which may have some implications in group play.
- Hardened Ward Reimagined: Without twilight matriarch, you can use the shield as a heal and get some much-needed survivability on your sorcerer character.
- Daedric Summoning Boost: 10% increase in max magicka and stamina from Expert Summoner regardless of pet presence boosts your damage output as well as resilience levels.
- Dark Magic Developments: Defensive playstyles may find it interesting that Daedric Mines were replaced by Daedric Refuge - shields cast on the ground to protect allies.
↖ Tips and Tricks
- Embrace the Status Quo: Abilities, sets, or builds that would reflect increased power of status effects are worth considering when building your character around this trend.
- Charged or Not Charged: With overall status effect buffs, charged trait remains important despite being nerfed. Consider other traits such as sharpened against the main focus of your build before making up your mind though whether charged trumps others depends on your own build’s focus,
- Healing Harmony: In some builds vibrant shroud can substitute Twilight Matriarch hence providing an AOE heal without the need for pet management. Compare with lower healing output against skill slot savings.
- Vigor Shifts: sorcerers need to be mindful of abilities and sets that give these buffs or debuffs because shields are influenced by major and minor Vitality now.
- Gear Gearing: gear choices matter more than ever due to the nerfing of Master Dual Wield. Thus, put your money on armors that fit your style either offensively or defensively.
Update 41 is turning into a renaissance for sorcerers in PVP. There may be some that would miss their old ways of playing but this opens up new strategies and builds. As we adjust ourselves to this new magical terrain, let's bear in mind that knowledge is power – and here, power means nothing else than total control over the battlefield.
