4e Sorcerer

The first three levels of the Sorcerer have been posted on the Wizards site (for D&D Insider subscribers only) and they look pretty cool for anyone that likes blasting stuff. Not sure if it's an error but one first level daily power does 6d6 + Cha modifier damage!

Dazzling Ray
Sorcerer Attack 1
A brilliant beam lances out to strike your foe and befuddle it.
Daily; Arcane, Implement, Radiant
Standard Action Ranged 10
Target: One creature
Attack: Charisma vs. Will
Hit: 6d6 +Charisma modifier radiant damage.
Wild Magic: If you rolled an even number on the attack roll, the target takes a penalty to attack rolls against you equal to your Dexterity modifier (save ends).
Miss: Half damage.

There are two types - one sort wields Dragon Magic, the second Wild Magic (sure to bring back fond memories of 2e's Tome of Magic, for me at least). Player's Handbook 2 is looking pretty good if the character classes we've seen are anything to go by.

6d6 for a first level power? There seems to be some definite power creep in the newer classes if that's not a mistake. And that flavour text is idiotic - this isn't befuddlement, it's a pure attack spell.

I think the befuddling is a reference to the attack penalty caused if you have Wild Magic.

Nope, apparently not a typo. EN World has also been expressing its surprise at that particular power (in its usual understated way).

Not just 6d6 damage, either. Half dam on a miss and the wild magic penalty 50% of the time!

6d6, half damage on a miss, occasional rider.

I almost thought it was too powerful, but what about 3[W] with a 2d6 two-hander?

So 6d6 is on par for the course.

That's a good point! Looking forward to seeing the whole book now.
