15 - Necropotence

The Necropotence Set is a fantastic option for Magicka Sorcerers as this class often relies on Pets, and the 5 piece bonus here provides lots of Max Magicka for players who have a Pet active. The fact that this set comes from a base game overland zone also makes it easy to farm, especially for lower level players.

Necropotence

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(3 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(4 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(5 items) While you have a pet active, your Maximum Magicka is increased by 3132.

 

14 - Crafty Alfiq

The Crafty Alfiq Set provides another option for Maximum Magicka focused Sorcerers, but does NOT require a Pet to be active. So if you prefer to keep pets to a minimum but still want a lot of Magicka to play around with, definitely check out this set.

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(3 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka

(5 items) Adds 2550 Maximum Magicka

 

13 - Combat Physician

The Combat Physician Set is a nice option for Magicka Sorcerer Healers or Solo Builds that want to focus on Damage Shields, as critically healing yourself or an ally will provide an additional Shield for free once every 6 seconds per target.

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka

12 - Netch’s Touch

The Netch’s Touch Set is a unique option that buffs all of your Shock Damage abilities by 400 Spell Damage. This set works especially well on the Magicka Sorcerer since so many of their abilities deal Shock Damage to targets.

With plenty of raw stats including Max Magicka, Spell Damage and Spell Penetration, the Spinner’s Garments Set is a great option for leveling builds, Solo builds and even PVP builds in The Elder Scrolls Online.

The Unleashed Ritualist Set is another great option if you want to follow a Pet Build strategy on the Magicka Sorcerer class. This set will buff your Pet’s overall damage by a whopping 16 precent! Make sure to use as many Pets as possible to get the most benefit from this set!

9 - Burning Spellweave

Burning Spellweave is a Dungeon Set provides a lot of Spell Damage for Magicka Sorcerers fairly consistently though you will need a solid source of Fire damage to proc it. Using an Inferno Staff is usually the easiest source of Fire Damage accessible to Magicka Sorcerer.

Set bonus

8 - Infallible Mage

Infallible Mage is a Trials Set with a focus on Heavy Attack gameplay. The Magicka Sorcerer actually does very well with the Heavy Attack playstyle so I would recommend picking up this set if that’s the kind of build you are interested in.

Infallible Mage

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 657 Spell Critical
(3 items) Gain Minor Slayer at all times, increasing your damage done to Dungeon, Trial, and Arena Monsters by 5%.

7 - New Moon Acolyte

New Moon Acolyte is a Crafted Set that boosts many strong offensive bonuses for the Magicka Sorcerer class including Critical Chance, Offensive Penetration and plenty of Spell Damage. While this set also has a negative bonus of 5 percent increased cost of abilities, this is easily offset by the Sorcerer’s cost reduction passive.

New Moon Acolyte

(4 items) Adds 1487 Physical Penetration, Adds 1487 Spell Penetration

6 - Mechanical Acuity

Mechanical Acuity is another Crafted Set for the Elder Scrolls Online with a very unique 5 piece bonus. This set increases your Critical Chance to 100% for a short duration, helping the Magicka Sorcerer class do absolutely crazy damage!

5 - Medusa

Medusa is the only Heavy Armor Set on our list, but that’s for good reason. The bonuses here are fantastic! Lots of Critical Chance plus you also get the Minor Force buff for free! Sorcerers generally do best with Light Armor, so you’ll want to try to pick up Jewelry Pieces (transmute them to a better trait) as well as a staff.

Medusa

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical
(3 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical
(4 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical

4 - False God’s Devotion

The False God’s Devotion Set can be obtained through the Sunspire Trial and is a great option for all Magicka Sorcerer builds due to it’s increased damage against Monsters (Minor Slayer) as well as a massive 8 percent cost reduction for Magicka Abilities. This set will be great for any situation from Solo Content, to Trials, Dungeons or Arenas.

False God’s Devotion

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical
(3 items) Gain Minor Slayer at all times, increasing your damage done to Dungeon, Trial, and Arena Monsters by 5%.
(4 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical

3 - Mantle Of Siroria

Mantle Of Siroria is another Trials set for ESO. This one offers an amazing amount of Spell Damage, one of the highest in the game! To obtain maximum damage you do need to remain relatively stationary which is not ideal in all fights, but this set is still definitely worth picking up.

Mantle Of Siroria

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 129 Spell Damage
(3 items) Gain Minor Slayer at all times, increasing your damage done to Dungeon, Trial, and Arena Monsters by 5%.
(4 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka

2 - Mother’s Sorrow

The Mother’s Sorrow Set is one of the best all around Magicka Sets in the game, and has been for a very long time! The Maximum Magicka and Critical Chance bonus fits on just so many different builds that this set is an absolute must have!

Mother’s Sorrow

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(3 items) Adds 657 Spell Critical

1 - Bahsei’s Mania

The Bahsei’s Mania Set has the potential to be the most damaging Magicka Sorcerer Set in the game, though there is a catch. This set grants you more damage based on having LESS Magicka left in reserve. So the lower your Magicka Pool the more damage you will do! If you can manage this mini-game without running out sustain then you will be rewarded!

Bahsei’s Mania

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 129 Spell Damage
(3 items) Gain Minor Slayer at all times, increasing your damage done to Dungeon, Trial, and Arena Monsters by 5%.
(4 items) Adds 657 Spell Critical
