In the RPG
Sorcerers own great talent for arcane spellcasting, but they have not harnessed it through the intensive training that wizards pursue. Most people do not make a distinction between sorcerers and wizards, although the latter may often refer to the former as hedge wizards or some other term.
Night elves bear a particular dislike for sorcerers, seeing them as vessels of demonic power. Wizards, at least, attempt to manipulate arcane power through controlled processes, rather than letting their own bodies act as conduits.
Sorcerers can come from any race. Night elves who takes this class are stripped of their racial heritage, effectively transforming into high elves, although they do not physically change.
High elf sorcerers
High elves are renowned for their magic, and on the battlefield, elven sorcerers often accompany Alliance troops into the thick of the fray. Although not physically powerful, the skill and bravery of these elves is beyond dispute. The elven sorcerer prefers to serve as part of a group, preferably in the rear with a few people to guard them. Mana shield is deployed to provide additional protection, while spells like slow and invisibility support their allies.
- The sorcerer core class was not adapted into the World of Warcraft RPG and was eliminated for use in the game.
- The word "sorcery" is derived from Latin sors, which was connected to divination and drawing lots, used in modernity to refer to either "low magic" or "black magic" within magical theory.
