Bard, Arcanist or Sorceress?

There are a set of fundamental differences between the Bard, Arcanist, and Sorceress Advanced Classes. While the Arcanist focuses on burst damage at a relatively close range, the bard relies more on healing spells to keep her allies topped up, and finally, the Sorceress deals high levels of burst and AoE damage from afar.

The latter of those, The Sorceress, is the DPS-focused spellcaster that is perfectly suited to players who have played DPS mages in other games. Blending together a collection of fire, ice, and lightning, her spellbook is packed to the brim with AoE and single-target attacks.

If you’re looking to play more PvP content, or alternatively just want to play a devastating ranged DPS, the Sorceress is for you.
