What is the Best Sorcerer Subclass in Baldur’s Gate 3?

As someone who mains a Sorcerer in Baldur’s Gate III, alongside a Cleric, this is one of my favorite classes. You have three subclass options: Wild Magic, Draconic Bloodline, and Storm Sorcery. Wild Magic is unpredictable and powerful, but I don’t recommend it to most players.

Storm Sorcery, on the other hand, is heavily versatile. You have the option to put yourself in a place to not get as damaged each turn after using your spells and gain some valuable resistances.

My favorite of the three is Draconic Bloodline. It gives you a dragon edge, even visually, and lets you pick an ancestry. This gives you resistance to one of the elements, and is especially powerful if you are already a Dragonborn character.

For instance, you could pick a Blue Dragonborn race and gain lightning resistance from that, but then pick a Red Draconic Ancestry from Sorcerer to now have fire and lightning resistance right from the start.
