Since there weren’t much aether sorcerers around that do AAR I decided to make one. This is not a noob friendly guide sorry. I will try to give tips how to level.
As a sorcerer or sorceress you have access to the newly added aether RR on thermite mines which we combine with the rr of BWC, through the devotion tree of life you will have plenty of energy regen and you can play this in the normal campaign no problem its what i designed it for. I did complete crucible with it but it was not very fast due to lots of kiting.
Head: Outcasts Secret, so this is for devestation and has some nice stats anyway or clairvoyant.
Shoulders: allagast for stun res
Hands:Mythical Aetherreach, best for AAR builds
Feet: grey magi for trap res and a cool proc
Chest: Fateweavers Raiment, for the res and it is aether so a good fit
Legs: Mythical wraithborn legwraps, nice proc and eather and oa
Neck:Mythical Peerless Eye, for the oa and 1 to all skills, myth essence of grim dawn
Rings: Mythical Albrechts duality, oa and support for AAR also a nice proc
Medal: Mythical Mark of Divinity, this is a safety net. or mark of anathema
Relic: Agrivix Malice, its something i had laying around but it has 1 to arcanist and aether damage so it fits.
Offhand: Mythical Aldanars Vanity, the cooldown proc is nice but also basically 1 to all skills on this or pulsing shard
Mainhand: Mythical Clairvoyants Wand, best for AAR builds
You cast aether corruption, BWC and throw out some Thermite mines, cast flashbang and devastation, nullification if it is a elemental enemy or if you want to dispel something. AAR is what you X-ray everything to death with. Since you be running a lot especially in crucible remember you can use “A” to force move, otherwise just bind move only to mouse button 1 if that is what you are used to. For mobility just upgrade you medal with one of the new mobility skills any will do just i havent dont that yet.
You can level a sorcerer(es) in many ways. Firestrike is one way to level just go ranged and firestrike everything, its easy to manage energy wise and it is quite save. Max out elemental balance and inner focus fast and do the entire firestrike line except static strike. This should get you all the way to level 100. Once you have the gear you need (i understand if you don’t have outcasts secret just use clairvoyant). Use the checklist and the guide on the forum for farming routes and cashes to open to get gear.
Pros and cons
+Nice aoe and single target due to AAR new mechanics
+lots of procs and safeguards
