Build description

This is a Melee sorc that has high AOE and fearsome burst DPS. This build maintains with automatic heals when used efficiently.

This is my strategy for the build:

Hurricane, and crit surge should be on whenever in combat (best to use them before initiating). Bound Armaments should be on all the time because it is on both bars. Open with crit rush, while holding down LMB releasing on the hit from crit rush. This speeds through the animation and lands a quick heavy strike. Next pop brawler to give you a quick dmg shield, drop lightning flood at the enemies feet, and weapon swap to dual wield. Here you have choices;

For AOE, you spam steel tornado for a now total of 3 AOE dmg sources (huricane, lightning flood, and steel tornado)

For single target, you spam bloodthirst which will burst dps and crit often proccing the heal from crit surge every 3 second, so combined with the heal on the ability, you can almost stand in the red and not worry about it on all but the elites.

If you run low on stam, (or for some reason health) you swap back to 2hander and activate Dark Deal to regain both health and stam.

Then rinse and repeat as needed.

The suppression field ultimate is really only needed on the major boss fights, or when you want to freeze mob spawns and focus fire a leader. The ultimate is not a vital part of this build and can be considered optional. Summon Charged Atronach for example does significant AOE, or power overload can give you yet a third ability bar (including your weapon swap bar).

I may take him Vamp later for the stam recov, but I have not finished my testing.

I should note if you are starting this build from lvl 1, the 2handed sword is vital to early build as the only distance closer you get as a Sorc is from that ability pool. Brawler is very helpful early on as well due to the shield making up for the ealry lack in self heals if you keep it active.
