Patch 6, includes more than just the new class, weighing in at around 60GB total, there’s a lot to expect. But for now let’s talk about the Sorcerer. So far we know a little about what to expect.

Patch 6 is currently in its prep phase still, but Larian has promised to do a full reveal of what else is in the Patch with another “Panel from Hell” soon, so keep an eye out for more details on that.
