Yes, since sorcerers have by far the weakest melee of any class, they have no incentive not to keep away in any case.

It's an SP reduction; the lower the total weight of the armour worn by the...

Nodens is probably the single deadliest monster in the game. I have killed him a few times, but it's never really safe.
