  3. Kolto overload can be used to mitigate some of the casted damage while you close 20 meters.
  4. When you get into range ensure you land a flame-burst for the combustible cylinder and the thermal detonator in the event they blow stuns and run away. (At least you now have a ticking thermal detonator and 3, 30-meter skills available to use)
  5. Use carbonize to prevent DPS sorcerers from using force-speed to escape.
  6. Use grapple to close the gap when the sorcerer inevitably uses overload + slow, or another stun
  7. Use a grenade if the sorcerer follows up the slow with a creeping terror so they can cast force-lightning for procs
  8. Use your electro-dart when the sorcerer begins frantically trying to heal themselves.

If you engage a DPS sorcerer properly and you aren't a crap player, you judge the skill level of the DPS sorcerer by his lack of self-rooting abilities. I never give good sorcerers the time to cast force-lightning for their madness proc. Since they don't get to cast to receive their proc, their damage is diminished to the point of no-concern. They can spend 45 seconds kiting me, while their damage has been cleansed and healed by a healer on my team. The bad ones will attempt to cast 1-3 seconds of it, which 95% of the time results in their demise.
This, it seems, has been written by someone who has made it past Recruit-gear as a Madness Sorc.

Nicely stated.
