I just wanted to ask how did you adapt to all the nerfs that we got. How are your Hardened Wards in noCP?

    Why the hell should crit surge have maj sorc?
    It never did.
    Just like molten armaments does not have maj brutality.

    Are you aware of a skill called igneous weapons that gives maj brut and sorc and NOTHING else?
    Nobody has done anything about it for years.
    Why on earth should crit surge get maj sorc?

    Dear @GeorgeBlack
    Because our go to Major Sorcery buff skill has been totally revamped to a healer's skill. It's like if you lost your healing from Flame Lash. Critical Surge has remained the only morph that actually heals like Power Surge healed before.

    Use Entropy.
    Imagine having such a powerful source and still complaining

    I didn't see too much of a change with exception to shields which was a sad nerf.

    For the moment, I'm running a 5-1-1 with mighty chudan, necropotence and bright throat

    My front bar is:

    Curse, entropy, crushing, frags and twilight(or aegis/inner light/fury if non pet)with shooting star ult.

    Backbar is:

    Streak, dark deal, ward, dampen and twilight(rapid regen or aegis if non pet) with temporal.

    Depending on enchants etc I'm getting between 9.3-10k wards in no-cp with around 19k rapid regen and like 9k twilight heal and with nord about 28k resistances or so. Numbers might be a bit off but close enough.

    On a side note, if you run no pet, I'd suggest shackle or crafty alfiq.

    Respec stam sorc and slot trap. It has a nice magicka sorc feel to it and when combined with hurricane, surge and streak makes for quite a nice pseudo hybrid sorc

    Replaced by Empowered Ward. I refuse to pay how much ever HW costs now.

    Wards are kind of a joke if you consider that they were originally designed to give you an offensive window. Now they barely cover a single Dizzying Swing or any spammable+LA.

    I replaced Power Surge with Radiant Regeneration. A week later, I replaced Radiant Regeneration by Critical Surge. Let's see how they will butcher this skill, maybe heal when you get critically annoyed?

    Mag Sorc is pretty balanced now. Shieldstacking is still viable and teleport is awsome, both morphs.

    I swapped to stam sorc to.

    Mag sorc is simply *** atm.

    RNG no on demand burst,
    dubble slot pet's to burst heal.
    otherwise the shittiest healing in the game.
    ward defenses that drains your resources three times more than it takes for anyone to bring them down.

    sounds like a good class yea?

    only thing sorc's are nice for is streak an negate, and stam sorc's does it better.

    It's outrageous to think that THE major sorcery class should have access to major sorcery in it's toolkit right? Crazy.

    The sorc hate is strong in this one...

    I'm still looking for major mending on my stamina templar. You know templar, the mending class?
    Zaghigoth- Orc Stamplar
    Soul Razor- Altmer Magsorc
    Les Drago- Redguard Stamdk
    Eirius- Altmer Magdk
    Stormifeth- Altmer Magplar

    Disclaimer: My comments are a little sarcasm mixed with truth. If you can't handle that don't respond to me.

    I plays my other OP AF stamina characters with the onslaught build that gives my enemies little to no counterplay. Because that is whats cool these days.

    I'm done complaining. I just flow with the punches now and profit. ZOS nerf magicka more so I'm now OP AF Stamina spec now. At least I know ZOS will never nerf Stamina specs.

    Yeah, but I don't wanna use soul trap and have someone rage when they die. Feels much better to not use it and win, then they cannot make excuses :D Plus playing without something OP always yields some great insights into the build process, so when you finally do use it...

    Depending on enchants etc I'm getting between 9.3-10k wards in no-cp with around 19k rapid regen and like 9k twilight heal and with nord about 28k resistances or so. Numbers might be a bit off but close enough.

    this was basically my build last patch so great to see it's still out there. do you think the twilight is even worth investment anymore or would you just drop and pick up two more skills (i see you gave options above but wondering if you are playing the bird mostly still today or let it go... i suppose if u let it go then necro changes to alfiq)

    Honestly I'm running the overgrown chicken still because of the 8% health bonus. I can do without and prefer double baring Aegis just to push my resistances to the maximum to better deal with the cheesy stuff going around atm if I do. Using rapid regen instead of the somehow popular Heal Ward is a much easier option for me personally. And if I do let the bird go, my choices are usually between Alfiq or Shacklebreaker. They're both solid sets.

    Oh wow! I never knew that Entropy existed! You have opened my eyes! Now I can stop complaining... unless on people who don't bother trying to understand others.

    Aside from Critical Surge not having Major Sorcery everything's fine, but that really one thing is truly horrible and makes no sense.
    No sense at all.
    Senseless.

    Lol, if grim focus gonna lose minor berserk, crit surge can lose major sorcery.

    Except grim focus is actually recastable as an OP burst damage skill whereas surge is simply a buff skill. You’re comparing apples to oranges. If they gave surge’s originally-mag-sorc morph a recastable skill that deals as much damage as grim focus then yeah.

    I “adapted” by putting soul trap and entropy on my bar and not even running a spammable. You literally don’t need one. I still haven’t mastered the new setup. I hope dots and magplar get nerfed next patch because although this new playstyle has its perks, it doesn’t matter if you can’t ever go offensive because your shields get eaten up in one second by all the Templars out there. And even if you do go offensive you’ll be perma snared and immobilized
