Sorcerers in PotV are a modern spin on old Chinese myths and legends about monks with special "chi" focusing abilities. They are born with a potential for great power in their life-force energy, and when this power is truly unlocked by an existing sorcerer (or by many decades of training), the character becomes a sorcerer. Although their powers could be applied in ways which would make them seem like old buddhist monks or kung fu warriors, this is not the only option for them. Sorcerers, when they grow sufficiently powerful, are also able to heal wounds, and direct their chi energy outward to cast powerful elemental spells.

As such, a sorcerer's powers focus on aspects which are best suited to human support roles such as healing, buffing allies, performing rituals, and so on. However, there is an option for them to also become, essentially, battle mages, if that's what you prefer.


Becoming a Sorcerer

  • Find a Sorcerer Apprentice
  • Fight and flee from 5 wolves.
  • Return with $10,000 on hand
  • The apprentice will train you to be a sorcerer when you have done these things.
  • You will be given 3 PXP and your maximum anima to start.

Basics

Pros

  • They have the ability to heal the wounds of any of their allies.
  • The ability to help someone (or themselves) gain energy for anima, or anima for energy.
  • Control over elements, "battle mages" if you prefer.
  • Sorcerer gain +1 blood each day.
  • Their anima increases at the same rate each day as vampires, if their blood is high.

Cons

  • Being a generally supportive class, Sorcerers aren't very combat oriented.
  • Blood thieves may have better combat oriented powers
  • You have to use at least one anima based power a day to get PXP.

Powers

You will be able to gain powers in the same way that vampires gain powers. Just click on your PXP stat and you'll find a "Sorcerer" class powers page, with all 10 powers ready to be bought as normal.
