This is one of the secrets of BGO.

Spoilers

Playstyle[edit | edit source]

Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Powerful skills that have unlimited range and low cooldowns.
  • Frostbolt is (usually) excellent for stopping someone else from swooping in the endgame.
  • You can use Frostbolt to Root yourself, preventing losing spaces with the Time Bomb, with The United Nations, with The Bear!, with Saruman, with a bad guy or with the Indian chief in The Wild West, or if you are being shot at by a player with a Gun (at the cost of dying.) This is particularly useful if you have already crossed the finish line.
  • Pyroblast is quite effective in duels.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • Use Frostbolt to Root a player who is about to swoop (or who is mid-swoop), use it vs. a player who needs to move for Chasm/Incoming Monster, or use it to ensure a kill with Gun/Sniper Rifle.
  • If you notice an item with huge swing potential for you in another player's inventory, such as Diss Card: Shift or English Breakfast components, using Telekinesis to try to steal it is usually a good option.
  • Use Pyroblast to deny a player a key event, such as Cards Of Fate.
  • If the Adventure Time reference event is chosen, you can get an Orb for magic casting. Also, the Enchiridion casts Wormhole and provides all 5 Magic Crystals for a total of 6 potential spells to cast. However, Dungeon Crawl can provide access to Demon Sword and can make Black Dragon Eggs more accessible to enemy players in longer games. On the plus side, Black Dragonling can provide Magic Crystals for you.
  • If the Board Game Of Thrones reference event is chosen, other players can become a Targaryen to receive a Dragon Egg and can more easily steal Dragon Eggs from The Dragon. Black, Blue, and Red Dragonlings can act as strong defenses against Frostbolt and Pyroblast. Targaryens also gain Ring Of Spell Deflecting which can hinder your magic usage. Other players can also become a Stark to receive a Wolf which can Silence you. However, if you become a Targaryen yourself, you can periodically get a chance to obtain a Magic Crystal from The Dragon, and if you somehow gain an Orb, it can be charged with Ancient Dragon Claw. There's also an ever so slight chance to steal a Black Dragon Egg which will grant Magic Crystals once hatched. This makes this reference event a mixed bag for Sorcerer.
  • If the Interdimensional Portal Gun reference event is chosen, Frostbolt can prevent losing spaces while getting a reward from Fantasy World.
  • If you can somehow get Lilith's Staff, it can solve the spell protection issue with magic spam.
  • Magical Mind can solve the Silencing issue with magic spam.

Dual-Class Synergies[edit | edit source]

Druid[edit | edit source]

  • Frostbolt has synergy with Entangling Roots.
  • Fairy Form's Flow Of Magic and Fairy Form: Extract Essence have synergy with Mysticality.

Enchanter[edit | edit source]

  • Magic Affinity and Condense Magic synergize well with Mysticality.

Merchant[edit | edit source]

  • You can repeatedly go to The Magic Shop for spells to cast that will grant you Mana from Mysticality. This is especially effective if you go to The Wizard Shop with the Cards Of Fate spell and get Orb, Staff, Wizard Hat, and Wizard Robes. (Tome Of Magic can be the icing on the cake.) The Wealth spell can supply you with the needed Rupees.

Necromancer[edit | edit source]

  • Shimmering Soul synergizes well with Mysticality.

Priest[edit | edit source]

  • Radiance being cast twice synergizes well with Mysticality. Radiance can also destroy a target's Lightning Rod or trigger their Ley Prism, giving an opportunity to hit the target with a Dark Spell.
  • Dispel Magic can remove Spell Shield or Spell Reflect, giving an opportunity to hit the target with a Dark Spell. Dispel Magic can also remove Life Shield, Star Power, or Auto-Resurrection, giving an opportunity to kill with Pyroblast or the Death Spell.

Saboteur[edit | edit source]

  • In a duel, Pyroblast can be used to burn an item made Highly Flammable by Sabotage while Hinder's Fire is still recharging or if Hinder's Fire somehow failed the first go-round. To ensure Pyroblast's effectiveness, Sabotage can also Freeze Red Dragonlings if the opponent becomes a Targaryen in the Board Game Of Thrones reference event or Freeze a Demon Sword they obtain.
  • Tinker can dispose of junk items like Jinxed Jewel Of Encumberment, covering one of Sorcerer's weaknesses.
