Ease of Manipulation

Postby Acarin » Mon Nov 05, 2012 11:43 am

I keep hearing on these boards that sorcery is extremely easy to channel, i.e. easier than any of the other channels. I'm curious as to whether this is just lore, or whether it actually translates into something in game (Does it just mean that PCs other than sorcerors can potentially learn it, or is there another unique advantage to this ease of manipulation that I'm missing?)

It's more widely available, has significantly lower thresholds required to maintain multiple channels, and skill requirements for powerful abilities are generally less than they would be for other types of channeling relative to the power of the ability. Sorcery has a wider variety of applications and potential uses, and fewer limitations. Sorcerers can do some pretty powerful and impressive things.
The lore compels me!
