Seriously, does the idea of sorcerery not make you want to become one? You are a person who can wield soul powers, the very essence of life into weapons. Why isn't every warrior taught how to use to imbue his weapon with magic? I would actually like to know this since it kinds of bugs me.

Some don't have the intelligence, some would rather fight purely on the merits of their own strength, some want to focus all their ability in one field - there are plenty of reasons, but they're the first to come to mind.

Some don't out of tradition to their nation's fighting style, like the berenike knights.

Then you also have individual's that hated magic like Havel who created rock armor out of resentment of Seathe along with the magic that it researched.

For the same reason the Firstborn didn't rely on Miracles. Weapons never betray you.

It has been discussed Sorcery actually takes a part of your soul. Pyromancy makes you use untamed forces, the very art is described as dangerous, as your own flame can engulf you. Miracles are tales of the Gods achievements; but I rather write my own.

There, the reasons for it, in my character's mind.

In real life, knowing the game mechanics, I say; we all sort of do. It's rare to see a character with an empty ATT slot.
