Hey there folks,

We're happy to finally share with you the release date of the Sorcerer Update, coming in next week on Tuesday July 13th! The Sorcerer Update will not only bring a new playable class to the Solastan roster, but also several new environments for the Dungeon Maker and a plethora of bug fixes and improves. But before that... Let's go back to the good ol' habits of our Dev Updates! 


And by good habits I mean cat pictures. Can't go wrong with 'em.


The Sorcerer is finally here!

As promised during our Kickstarter, the Sorcerer is coming for free next week to Solasta - with three archetypes to choose from! Sorcerers are powerful spellcasters with the innate ability to cast magic using their Charisma attribute. While they do not know as many spells as a Wizard would, they more than make up for that with their ability to twist their spells thanks to their Metamagic feature. The three available subclasses are:

  • Draconic Sorcerer: Draconic Sorcerers’ powerful magic comes from their bloodline, which they claim can be traced back to powerful dragons of ancient times. 
  • Mana Painter: Mana Painters were born out of the mana starvation that followed the Cataclysm, with some individuals suddenly gaining the innate ability to drain magic and use it as their own. 
  • Child of the Rift: When the opening of the Rift forced a new magic brought by the gods of Tirmar into Solasta, those most deeply affected by it were named the Children of the Rift. 


Fireball is the question. The answer is yes.


Ironman Mode, DM Update & Other Bugfixes

The Sorcerer is not the only thing coming up in this update. Ironman Mode is making its way to Solasta, experts and masochists rejoice as the game mercilessly grinds your save file to dust when you run into a gamer over. At the same time, you will also gain access to three new environments in the Dungeon Maker, each with their own set of props and gadgets. Lastly, we've also done a whole lot of bug fixes and improvements, such as the Tome of Understanding finally being usable, potions no longer requiring concentration, the primed chain shirt no longer missing from the Arcaneum shop and auto-equip finally being disabled!


Woodlands Environment


Catacombs Environment


Sewers Environment


Alright folks, this is the end for today! See you on July 13th for the Update. Thank you for reading, and don't hesitate to drop by our Forums or our Discord Server.

Are there mechanical details anywhere for the new sorcerer subclasses?

Sounds like a juicy update!  Can't wait to try the 3 subclasses of sorcerer out.  Really excited about the 3 new terrain biomes for Dungeon Maker.  I've been playing some really great player made content.  Keep the positive changes coming guys and gals.  Enjoying the hell out of this game, can't even imagine what it's going to be like 2 years down the road!

Am I just a bit cynical or is the reveal from Larian that Patch 5 will launch on the 13th too a bit suspicious? Almost like they want to keep the conversation away from Solasta and on BG3.

Anyway, I am looking forward to the Sorcerer. Any chance we get a sneak peak on their subclass features? 


Typos happen. More so on the phone.

Gigantic company Larian, composed of 5 studios worldwide if my recent count is right, cannot make such tiny minded decisions.  In reality, fans of BG3 and Solasta, like myself, have no problem whatsoever following the updates.  BG3 is only in Early Access and it is just an update among many to come.  The tons of other RPG and games are not in direct competition with PATCH 5 (out of many more patches during the year) for future BG3.

can't say i've not even thought about buying/playing BG3 so i have no knowledge of their updates.  i've not played a video game in 20 years.  ironically the last one was BG1 so i'm a bit of a noob in this area, however, because of the tangential knowledge i've acquired while basking in the glow of SOLASTA, i think there might be hope for BG3.  i'm hoping someone creates 'mods' for BG3 to make it truer to 5e RAW, then i might be interested in BG3

The subclasses look interesting, although I find it weird why the Mana Painter needs to go into melee to recover a Sorcery Point? I would never send an unarmored caster with low HP into melee.
