Oh my wish I hadn't seen this one LOL! I just started a sorcerer, level 18 right now. I am using 2H/Bow and using Arena and Night's Silence, Bosmer, 5Medium/2Heavy armor. The downside to this setup right now is I can't heal myself if I need to other than a potion. May have to step back and rethink my setup.
Do you have Champion points? If so how are they distributed?
Does anyone know if this build is still viable?
And how about passives and champion points distribution? Can anyone help with that?
I haven't leveled enough to worry about Champion Points (lvl 29), yet, but passives would be to reduce Ultimate cost and to give you back health and magica and to reduce ability cost; pretty much just what you think they'd be. I don't see anything under Restro Staff I'd take, but the 1H&Shield passives all look good, especially Sword &Board and Fortress. All the Heavy Armor passives look good. Power Stone under Daedric Summoning for sure, then the others. For Dark Magic probably just Unholy Knowledge. Capacitor and Expert Mage under Storm Calling look good.
For leveling in PvE, I think the build is a lot of fun and very viable; takes a bit to understand the playstyle, though. At end game, I don't know.
Actually, I just respecced to this build at lvl. 26 from a Stamina DPS sorcerer, so my gear is still vanilla and I don't have all the skills I should. I'm still doing very well in PvE; I'm holding off on group tanking until I get good gear and all my abilities/morphs. But doing dolmens and delves is great and a lot of fun.
