  • Positioning and planning are required for rogues. 
  • They have access to effects like Slow, Stun, and Freeze.

Enchantment System 

Moving on, let’s take a look at the enchantment system, with which you are able to take the skills and place them into two locations, both an enchantment slot and a skill slot

Personally, these uses of the Enchantment System proved beneficial in my playthrough and could benefit your run as well:

  • You are able to gain passive effects from these enchantments, and you need to have skill points to use them. 
  • You can’t really use ultimate skills for these slots. 
  • Any skill that has been upgraded will end up being the cause of the passive being impacted, too. 
  • The enchantment slot effects impact Basic, Core, Defensive, Conjuration, and mastery skills

Skills 

Regarding skills, a Sorceress encompasses basic, core, defensive, conjuration, mastery, and ultimate skills, which I’ve compiled in a table below for your convenience:

Moving on, let’s look at the class mechanics that Druids offer. You can form different bonds with spirit animals, and whenever you reach level 15, you can interact with 4 spirit animals.

Here are some of the advantages of bonding with the spirit animal that I found insightful:

  • When all four animals are unlocked, you can either bond with a fifth animal or you can choose to gain two bonuses from one spirit animal of their choosing and another bonus from all four animals.
