The Sorcerer, Levels 1-3
The waiting is over, one of the much speculated counterpart of the Wizard is now revelaed. Is it a controller or a striker?
The Sorcerer is an Arcane Striker that uses magic to blast his enemies fueled by the powers in his blood. It keys off the main ability stats of Charisma and Dexterity but a surprising tertiary ability is Strength.
Although it can wear the same protection as the Wizard but it has proficiency in both ranged and melee simple weapons. The implements of the sorcerer are daggers and staves.
The sorcerer is also slightly tougher in terms of hitpoints and number of healing surges but has the same healing surge value as the Wizard.
Finally, the sorcerer has a longer skill list with 10 skills (Arcana, Athletics, Bluff, Diplomacy, Dungeoneering, Endurance, History, Insight, Intimidate & Nature) to choose from over the Wizards' 7.
