Expert level of Sorrow is quite useful against wandering creatures at least in situations where it is essential that they do not receive an extra turn due to their +1 morale. However, casting Sorrow against a computer or a human player is questionable. Depending on the enemy morale, it will either reduce the chance (or eliminate) of enemy troops getting the extra turn or increase the chance of them to lose a turn. As the chances for bad morale are higher, the latter it is more favourable option. In other words, reducing enemy morale to -3 is better than reducing it to +1 - and if your opponent has morale in excess of 3, Sorrow might only reduce it to +2, or not at all. In conclusion, against wandering monsters the Sorrow is sometimes useful, but against human and computer players there are typically better spells to cast than Sorrow. In general, Sorrow is not as powerful as many other 4th level spells (Armageddon, Berserk, Resurrection), and possibly takes too much spell points than it is worthy of.
