[CLASS BUILD] The Sorcerer's Apprentice (twisted sneaky dps scroll user)

Recommended Posts

Mechanics that concern this build haven't changed, so it still should be viable. 

I did not try to solo with this build. It's build like a glass cannon and that's not good for a solo run. When soloing with a rogue I would always use Shadowing Beyond.

Great! Yeah id change the build a bit, made a similar build 1.5 years ago by stacking spell holding items on my rogue with a shield. Devastating dmg while still being able to tank, tho he was supported by a group to stack debuffs on enemies. Not sure how it would work while soloing. I am going to try it out. Got bored with the monk, such a boring class :p

Hello!

 

Ive been trying to make this build for a long time, but I’m kinda thorn between this and a wizard per se.

 

My main thing is: I want the character to have nice mental stats for RP purposes. In this regard what do you think it would be better, from an RP and fun points of view: this guy or your Zeblastian?

Hmm, from a fun point of view? Hard to say. Both will drop down pretty quickly once targeted, so this can be frustrating.

 

From lvl 11 on this is pure fun - especially with a fellow wizard who can provide afflictions.

 

Spell binding gear and scrolls will be rare in the early game, so the beginning will be more rough. But taking Prestidigitator's Missiles and Penetrating Shot early is nice.

Hi!

 

Hate to bring up an old thread but I can't get over the idea of this build.  Is it a crazy idea to try and tank this build?  I love the idea of a mechanics specialist on the front line who wants to do nothing more then sit there "Riposte"ing and casting scrolls.  As far as stats I don't think might would be overly important because the base damage of scrolls is pretty good.  Also I can't seem to dump any stats here either because all are important.  I'm going to try and take a stab at this for stats but feel free and chime in and call me crazy here.  :no:

Tanking with a rogue is tough in the early game. Later on it's okish.

 

As shield aim for Badgradr's Barricade in Durgan's Battery. Perfect shield for Riposting.

 

I would also focus on items with spell bindings. Look at Bitter it, Flames of Faîr Rhian, the White Crest and so on. Then you don't need that many scrolls all the time.
