So whats the point to have Sorcery if there is no bonuses? I'm playing right now dragonkin istari with Sorcery (NE) and I'm trying to decide is it worth of trying?.. Anyone had such experience? Pros and cons?

pros:
  1. you don't need to think about where to put skillpoint, all to sorcery
  2. you can cast all the spells
  3. you can cast all the spells
cons:
  1. you have only one spare skill point, without potion, which give skill points
  2. you can cast most spells 2 character level after others at the beggining (starting with 0 sorcery, 0.205 for 1 skillpoint)
  3. no bonuses
  4. putting skillpoint to archery/weaponmastery/combat decrease sorcery (not big deal with so few skillpoints)
  5. too many spell to cast :D

Thanks :) But I thought there would be more detailed analisys with some personal experience.

Anyway, iIs there any interesting possibilities to create any hybrids with sorcery? For example with adventurer class.. May be sorcery+mimicry?

Problem with sorcery: no spellpower. So even if you can cast all spells, you cast weaker versions of them. Basically, you're planning for a post-king character which will be able to skill spellpower at level 51+ to become a powerhouse. And as said before, you get no school bonuses, which means no fire immunity, shards/water/time/mana resistance...
