Standard Use[edit | edit source]

  • A random other player on your space is targeted if possible. Then:
  • If you couldn't target a player and you have 7 or more Mana: You lose 7 Mana. You move 4-5 spaces forward.
  • If you couldn't target a player and you have less than 7 Mana: Nothing occurs.
  • If you targeted another player and you have 2 or more Mana: You lose 2 Mana. You move 4-5 spaces forward.
  • If you targeted another player and you have less than 2 Mana: Nothing occurs.
  • If the Class Talent is active: If you targeted an enemy player, you gain 6 Mana if you are not on the target's space after you move.
Notes[edit | edit source]
  • You still have to pay 2 Mana before gaining 6 Mana from the Class Talent, for a net gain of 4; you cannot Flash without Mana even with the Talent.
  • If you use Flash with the Talent while on the same space as an enemy player and an ally player, the enemy player is not prioritized in the target selection.
  • Movement-triggered effects like Duct Tape and Auto Hammer can activate in-between Flash movement and the Talent's space check, changing whether or not you gain Mana.

Pyroblast[edit | edit source]

Pyroblast
Pyroblast.png

Tooltip Hurl a huge ball of liquid fire at a target player. The target player dies and all enemy players within 25 spaces of impact catch on Fire for 3 turns.

If the Class Talent is active: Cost increased to 100. Now has a 15 space kill radius, which also removes all death protection. Fire radius increased to 100 spaces and additionally instantly burns 3 items.

Standard Use[edit | edit source]

  • Target any player.

All enemy players within a 100-space radius of the target (instead of a 25-space radius) gain 3 turns of Fire, and along with that, they each have 3 items instantly burned.

Playstyle[edit | edit source]

Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Powerful skills that have unlimited range and, technically, no cooldown.
  • Effective at late game when power is allowed to build up.
  • Flash is excellent for swooping in the endgame.
  • 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]

  • Weak early game.
  • If a game is too short, you might have insufficient Mana for the endgame.
  • No skills for disposing of junk items like Jinxed Jewel Of Encumberment.
  • Root Immunity such as from Druid's Crow Form, from a Magic Broom either bought at The Wizard Shop or found in The Haunted Mansion's Graveyard during Halloween, or from The Avaril can make Frostbolt useless for stopping a swoop. Barbarian's Break Free can similarly remove Rooted.
  • Frost Immunity such as from Quantum Quality, Syringe, a Dragonling, Bearskin Vest, Spear Of Skadi, or Jewel Shield can make Frostbolt useless.
  • Fire Immunity such as from Quantum Quality, Syringe, a Dragonling, Demon Sword, Dragon Shield, or Jewel Shield can make Pyroblast useless.
  • If you use Pyroblast on an enemy, you will lose a huge amount of Mana that could be used for Frostbolt or Flash; this can cost you heavily outside of a duel.
  • Cooldown reduction is generally not useful for Sorcerer skills (though it could be useful for Frostbolt in the endgame.)
  • Spell protection can significantly hinder the viability of spamming magic, especially in long games with Sir Lancelot's Ring Of Dispel and Shamshir-e Zomorrodnegar or if an opponent has an Amethyst Necklace.
  • Silenced from Necromancer's Bone Mage, Lawyer's Natural Liar Talent, Alchemist's Concoct Talent, Warlock's Libido Fiend, or Plunger can interfere with spamming magic.
  • Access to charging items in The Magic Shop is frequently denied by Saboteur's Hinder and Lawyer's Objection!, and this can be done at any range. Warlock's Chaotic Magic can be used similarly, though this is a less frequently seen threat. Disarm, Polymorph, and Death spells from The Magic Shop itself can also deny access.
  • If you are not careful with counterplay, Lawyer's Confiscate Evidence can be used to steal an item you are charging or have just charged at The Magic Shop.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • It may be tempting to use your skills immediately, but it is generally wise to wait it out until someone is on the verge of victory. At this point, Frostbolt can Root a player before they cross the finish line.
  • 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 an option.
  • Flash can give a large amount of spaces very quickly when used at maximum Mana by clicking it 8 or 9 times in a few seconds, and there is no way for others to prevent your Mana from building up with time.
  • 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.
