The Sorcerer is a spell-casting class which uses ice spells.
Many spells from the Sorcerer focus on putting a lot of projectiles on screen to deal mass damage to everything around himself.
His primary and Frost Nova aim towards the nearest enemy when they bounce off a wall.
The Sorcerer's Character Title will add mana regen for everyone in your guild.

Stats

The player starts off at level 1. Every time the Sorcerer levels up, stat boosts are gained.
What differs the Sorcerer from other classes is his high base mana, allowing the casting of many spells in quick succession before a recharge is required.

To get stats at a given level, use the equation "X = scaling * (level-1) + Level_1_stat"
