The Sorcerer Base spell circle is a hybrid form of magic spanning the elemental and spiritual spheres. The majority of spells in this circle are warding attack spells. In addition, several spells offer significant utility purposes, including a few uniquely defining capabilities.

According to An Overview of Elanthian Magic, there are actually two versions of the Sorcerer Base circle of magic, one used by the Faendryl, and a second that is released to Sorcerers all over the continent. While in theory the general council which guides the Sorcerer Base circle controls content in the universal version, and the Faendryl control their internal circle, it is generally known that the Faendryl have a hand in all decisions related to Sorcery, whether through respect or intimidation. As a result, the two circles are almost always synchronized with each other, with the exception of those spells which the Faendryl keep to themselves.
