Turbine's official Dungeons & Dragons Online website has been updated with a fifth alpha journal, this time offering an introduction to creating and playing a Sorcerer in the MMORPG. Here we go:
Chill Touch is particularly nasty. In DDO, this spell does a single high damage attack on living creatures, and against undead causes no damage but makes them panic and retreat from the caster. One Chill Touch can take out many low level monsters in one hit, making short work of scores of kobolds, spiders and other baddies. Against undead the fear effect means you can pummel the horror at will without fear of retribution. The main limitation for the spell is that it doesn't work on constructs like iron guardians, and its short range makes it hard to land if your intended target is chasing someone else.
