    Top 3 Sorcerer Spells

    So what would you say are the 3 best spells for a combat focused sorcerer? I Personally like Magic Jar, Wall of Stone and Draconic Polymorph.

    The first gives you a enemies body to get in trouble with.
    The second is for making a stone that can crush a ogre, just shrink it and throw.
    The last gives a fighter a huge stinkin damage bonus.

    So what do you like.

    Wings of Flurry: AoE, no friendly-fire, uncapped damage, Force, failed save means daze.

    Draconic Polymorph: Say hello to a pair of Cave Trolls (familiar + share spell)

    Assay Spell Resistance: SR ha!

    My homebrew (now includes a giant undead brain)

    If you ever want to try some of my homebrew and need a DM send me a PM, and if you are playing some, I'd love to know how it works out.

    Wings of Cover has to be on there.

    DM: "You get hit with a fireball/shivering touch/disjunction/SoD for damage/paralysis/magic stripping/death"
    Sorc: "No, no I do not"

    • Wings of Cover (2nd level)
    • Wings of Flurry (4th level)
    • Arcane Fusion (5th level) & Greater Arcane Fusion (8th level)
    These are not only the top three Sorcerer spells for their offensive and defensive capability, but they're also truly Sorcerer spells, in that they're only on the Sorcerer list (and not on the Wizard list).

    This, pretty much. I never, ever make a sorcerer without at least the Wings of X line.

    Limited Wish is the best sorcerer spell.
    I'd say Glass Strike is a good one, being a ranged fort-targeting save-or-die that works on undead. Frostfell is super-sickhouse, especially with Arcane Spellsurge.

    There is little arguing with that. Once you have the choice of casting four spells per round or casting two spells per round and denying one attack per round, well, whatever you do with your spells will be good.

    1) Colour Spray (mainly at low levels, but still Stunned for 1 round never gets old)
    2) Silent Image (upgraded to Major Image)
    3) Shadow Conjuration
    π = 4
    Consider a 5' radius blast: this affects 4 squares which have a circumference of 40' — Actually it's worse than that.
