'''Recommended for:''' For heroes relying a lot of direct damage spells such as [[Armageddon]]. For other heroes, sorcery is a sub-par secondary skill and should be avoided in favor of other skills that boost magic or combat damage ([[Offense]] and [[Archery]]). Spell damage grows very slowly over time and even the Sorcery specialists will find their spell damage boost to be fairly underwhelming against the growing monster stacks, all while non-damaging spells like [[Haste]], [[Slow]] and [[Berserk]] become more and more useful because their tactical value scales with the monster stack size. In short, Sorcery offers only a minor buff and only to spells that will get used less and less as the game progresses.
