Magicka Sorcerer Suggestion

Without getting into much details.

How about buffing Shields in general(Battle spirit) and just an overall better scaling with health. Since you mostly have to run so much magicka recovery to sustain magsorc, lower the cost for some skills and increase the cost for using streak if casted again even more. This way you can for example use more dmg glyphs/mundus and perhaps sets if the shields are buffed and be able to put out the same dmg as all other classes does with procs/sets on a shield build.

Since everyone complains about streak, having shields buffed and increasing the cost of streak if casted again and maybe even increasing the duration to 6 seconds. This will make magsorc rely less on streaking and make it able to stand and fight with shields while only using streak when really needed and not spamming it.

    Another thread with more ideas to nerf Sorc even more?

    But your suggestion will just yield to one thing: even less class identity and probally even a weaker Sorc overall, because even with slightly buffed shields he wont do better than literally any other class which btw. have also access to shields which they would use if they would be good or at least relevant.

    rework absorb shields? if improving the cap isn't fine then at least a morph that changes it's functionality.
    act like a heal over time, you get a small amount of absorb shield every 1-2 second over 10-15 seconds. Total bigger value and leaves space to synergize with an actual heal to fill the gaps while protected by absorb shield

    If everyone complains about something, it doesn’t justify a nerf.

    I get it, that you don’t want a OP sorc. But my take it let’s give a fair treatment to all classes and let sorc be OP for a few years like nb.

    How much do you want to bet that there will be more nb buffs next patch ?

    No do not nerf Streak! Let the zergers complain they couldn't 10v1 some rando Sorc before it Streaked away. If anything remove the cost increase to make it as good as NB cloak and shade. As I've mentioned in other threads, generic speed buffs have DKs and Wardens running Streak Sorcs down on foot, Sorcs do not have the mobility advantage they once did.
