The Thief

Ghastly Eye Bowl
Essence of Spell Power

Introduction (Update 32, Deadlands)

The Magicka Sorcerer class remains one of the strongest DPS options from an early to endgame level in the Elder Scrolls Online for all levels of PvE content.

Recommended race for the Magicka Sorcerer is Altmer or Dunmer. Khajiit could still be good in either raids or 4-man content depending on the Critical Damage value of your setup.

Recommended Mundus Stone is The Thief.

Recommended potions for this build will be Essence of Spell Power. It's harder to run Heroism Potions on Magicka Sorcerer compared to Magicka Dragonknight

Recommended food for this build is Ghastly Eye Bowl or any bi-stat food (Health + Magicka) for content that requires you to do so. You can also do Clockwork Citrus Filet or Witchmother's Potent Brew if need be. In some cases due to the Pets' Health passive, you can use any Green Max Magicka food for a simple ~6,000 more Max Magicka.
