Sorcerers summon and control weather phenomenon: hurling lightning bolts and creating electrified fields, summoning tornados and impenetrable fog and calling upon Daedric forces to summon Storm Atronachs and magical armor.

— Game Description

Sorcerers are warriors who wield the powers of the arcane to destroy their foes with lightning, summon fierce Daedric minions and curse enemies with powerful dark magic. Sorcerers are an incredibly versatile class in TESO which can fill the role of both DPS and Tank through the three main skill lines; Dark Magic, Daedric Summoning and Storm Calling. Due to this versatility Sorcerers are a very strong class for the solo adventurer as well as group play.
