How this set up works:
You will be dealing constant damage multiple times per second to enemies with Power Surge or Crit Surge(if using spell power pots) constantly healing you every second for dealing crit damage. Keep shields up against very high dps bosses, but against most things you can just rely on boundless storm and power surge to keep you alive. The damage shield abilities can be stacks to effectively put you on 43k health making you very hard to kill and able to outlast almost anything.
This is not the most efficient set up but it is a very fun and easy set up to use, things can be switching in and out as you like.
The aim of this set up is to be cheap and cheerful using Power Surge for spell damage and healing and regular magicka potions to sustain a bit better although potions are not needed at all they allow you to use more crushing shock ability which is the spamable dps ability.
You have two damage shields, I like to run Empowered Ward on front bar as it lasts 10 seconds but when doing serious PVE content i recommend switching Harness Magicka to the front bar and Empowered Ward to back as Harness Magicka restores Magicka three times while active and in these times your Empowered Ward would not last 10 seconds anyway.
Keep Blockade + Liquid Lightning up all the time on your main target, the back bar you switch to every 25-30 seconds to reapply buffs (Power Surge, Light Attack, Boundless Storm, Light Attack, Elemental Drain, Light Attack, Haunting Curse) I recommend timing it so you go to the backbar just after laying down Blockade/Liquid Lightening as they will be dealing damage while you are buffing up.

Hey, nice build fam. Wondering if you are using your overload bar as a mobility bar or what’s going on there?
I was thinking boundless storm, streak, empowered, daedric mines, and w/e.
I absolutely love this build! I only changed the conjured ward for crystal shards and a restoration staff instead so I could get more healing. It is my first sorcerer build and I love it. Good job!
