CHAMPION SPOTLIGHT – SORCERER SUPREME

About SORCERER SUPREME

Sorcerer Supreme was born into poverty, collecting stray dreams on the outskirts of the Nightmare Realm before finding her way to the Temple of Vishanti. Realizing her potential in the mystic arts, she rose up and became one of the most brilliant students in the Temple. Now, armed with her cunning, daring, and mastery over her Book Of Vishanti and Crimson Orbs Of The Cosmos, The Ancient One has called upon her to be a key player in a much larger, more dangerous game…

SORCERER SUPREME’s Mechanics

Sorcerer Supreme is similar to Doctor Strange and Symbiote Supreme, in that she gains Power over time and rotates between different Blessings throughout the fight. However, unlike her predecessors, she has greater control over when and how her Blessings rotate. She is also able to store a few “Runes” of her current Blessing whenever she activates a Special Attack, which add beneficial effects to the next few Special Attacks she uses.

Character Class: Mystic

Basic Abilities: Blessings of the Realm, Runic Spells, Slow, Nullify

STRENGTHS

  • Versatility
    • Sorcerer Supreme has access to a huge variety of different effects, including Power Gain, increased Energy Resistance and Attack Rating, Perfect Block, Power Steal, Regeneration, Slow, and many more. Whatever the Contest throws at her, she’s got a spell ready to counter it. And on top of all that, she’s got a Pre-Fight ability to choose her starting Blessing, to give her even more options.
  • Nullification Aura
    • Sorcerer Supreme’s Special Attack 1 brings a new spin on the Nullify ability. Once the attack is done, she triggers a Nullification Aura around herself, that will slowly Nullify Buffs off the Opponent. This can be an incredibly potent ability in the right match-up, but it does require her to get up close and personal with her Opponent to get the most benefit out of it.

WEAKNESSES

  • Fragile
    • Sorcerer Supreme has a relatively low health pool and Physical Resistance. She compensates for this somewhat with her Regeneration, but she’s definitely more fragile than the average Champion.
  • Blessing Management
    • A lot of Sorcerer Supreme’s effects are tied to her current Blessing, as she constantly rotates between these during each fight. Making sure you’re correctly triggering effects at the right time, while under the right Blessing, is key to using her effectively. Fortunately, she’s able to manually rotate her Blessing using a Heavy Attack, so she has ways of getting things back under control if necessary.

The following Stats and Abilities are based on a Rank 5, Level 65, 5-Star Champion

ABILITIES: 

Passive:

  • Basic attacks deal Energy Damage instead of Physical.
  • Sorcerer Supreme gains 70% less Power from Attacking, Blocking, and being Struck, but gains 25% of her Max Power every 9 second(s).
  • -370.59 Physical Resistance.
  • +2100 Energy Resistance.

Developer’s Note: She doesn’t gain quite as much Power over time as Doctor Strange does, but she’s also able to gain some via regular attacks.

Passive – Blessings of the Realm – Pre-Fight Ability:

  • Sorcerer Supreme rotates between different Blessings every 8 second(s), in the order of Cyttorak’s Ferocity, Raggadorr’s Resolve, and Ikonn’s Ingenuity.
  • Each fight starts in Cyttorak’s Ferocity, unless a different Blessing is chosen on the Pre-Fight Screen.
  • Cyttorak’s Ferocity grants +1218.5 Attack Rating and increased Critical Damage Rating.
  • Raggadorr’s Resolve grants +1400 Armor and 30% Perfect Block chance. 
  • Ikonn’s Ingenuity grants all hits Power Steal for 3% of the Opponent’s current Power. Sorcerer Supreme gains 150% of the Power Stolen.

Developer’s Note: One Blessing for offense, one Blessing for defense, one Blessing for control. Sorcerer Supreme’s Pre-Fight ability only allows her to choose either Raggadorr’s Resolve or Ikonn’s Ingenuity, since Cyttorak’s Ferocity is the default starting Blessing.

Special Attacks – Runic Spells:

  • All Special Attacks store Runes of the current Blessing. Stored Runes have no effect.
  • After Runes are stored, Sorcerer Supreme then consumes up to 1 of each Rune to trigger different effects.
  • Runes of Cyttorak Armor Break the Opponent for 12 second(s), reducing Armor Rating by -2100.
  • Runes of Raggadorr Passively Regenerate Sorcerer Supreme for 524.32 Health over 12 second(s). While this is active, Sorcerer Supreme Regenerates 75% of the damage she takes from Blocked Hits.
  • Runes of Ikonn Slow the Opponent for 12 second(s), preventing their Unstoppable and Evade effects. Opponents with a natural Class Advantage cannot be Slowed.

Developer’s Note: Runes are a very important part of Sorcerer Supreme’s utility, but they can be a little tricky to understand. Rune empower the next few Special Attacks Sorcerer Supreme uses with bonus effects, depending on how many were gained and what Blessing was present when the Special Attack was used. Here’s an example…

Before the SP is used, she has no Runes:

Immediately after triggering the SP2, she has 3 Runes of Cyttorak:

During that same SP2, one of the Runes is converted into an Armor Break, leaving 2 behind:

The next time she does an SP2, she uses another Rune of Cyttorak to trigger second Armor Break, as well as gaining Runes of Raggadorr and triggering a Regeneration:

Heavy Attack:

  • Rotate to the next Blessing.

Special 1: AURA OF SILENCE – Sorcerer Supreme conjures the Crimson Orbs of the Cosmos to launch missiles of mystical energy at the Opponent.

  • Store 2 Rune(s) of the current Blessing.
  • The first hit has a 100% chance to Nullify 1 Buff off the Opponent.
  • After this attack, Sorcerer Supreme casts a Nullification Aura around herself for 10 second(s). Every 0.75 second(s) the Opponent spends in the Aura, 1 of their Buffs is Nullified.

Developer’s Note: Since Runes are both stored and consumed when using Special Attacks, this attack effectively grants Sorcerer Supreme 1 Rune of her current Blessing.

Special 2: ASTRAL SLIDE – Using a seal of the Vishanti, Sorcerer Supreme enters the astral plane, charges at the Opponent, and detonates them with ethereal energy.

  • Store 3 Rune(s) of the current Blessing.
  • After consuming Runes, Pause all Rune effects until 5 second(s) after this attack ends.

Developer’s Note: Regeneration still happens while the effect is paused, so this Special Attack can be used to get even more healing out of the Runes of Raggadorr.

Special 3: SUPREME VERDICT – Sorcerer Supreme enchants her Crimson Orbs of the Cosmos to hunt down her Opponent and sear their soul with arcane electricity.

  • The first time this is used in a fight, store a permanent Rune of the current Blessing. This Rune is never consumed.
  • Subsequent uses store 2 non-permanent Runes instead.
  • Attack Rating is increased by up to +7311 based on stored Runes.

Developer’s Note: This attack is useful for when you want to trigger a specific Rune effect for every single Special Attack in the whole fight. The maximum Attack Rating increase is achieved by having 10 stored Runes.

Signature Ability – RING OF OBLIVION

Passive

  • Sorcerer Supreme gains +50% Ability Accuracy.
  • The Potency of Blessings is increased by 33%.

Developer’s Note: All of Sorcerer Supreme’s abilities already have the default 100% chance to trigger, so the Ability Accuracy she gains in her Signature Ability is more useful for when she encounters Buffs or Opponents who would reduce it.

  • Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.

  • Synergy Members: Armor Break Debuffs inflicted on the Opponent have 30% increased Potency.
  • Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.

RECOMMENDED MASTERIES:

  • Mystic Dispersion
    • Sorcerer Supreme has access to quite a potent Nullify ability with her Nullification Aura, so she should have an easy time gaining additional Power using Mystic Dispersion. Gaining more Power also means she’ll be able to trigger Special Attacks more frequently, so it will be easier to store up Runes.
  • Despair
    • One of the few things that Sorcerer Supreme can’t easily answer is opposing Regeneration effects. The Despair mastery gives her an avenue to reduce the Opponent’s healing, and she is able to stack up quite a few Armor Break and Slow Debuffs using her SP2.
