Diablo 4 Sorceress guide
The Diablo 4 release date is getting closer and the speculations & predictions are coming like a wild storm. A lot of readers asked us to write a Sorceress guide explaining all the potential skills and spells. So, here we are with the Diablo 4 Sorceress guide. Let’s start…
The sorcerer has the enchantment mechanic, which gives you three passive slots that you can fill with active abilities. When you fill your enchantment slots with active abilities, you can't use those active abilities as spells anymore. It makes them happen on their own.
For example, if you put the meteor spell into your enchantment system, it will rain meteors on random enemies you are fighting while you are in combat. Every spell in the game has a different effect when you use it in the enchantment system.
This is in addition to all the other things you can change and all the other spells you can put on your action bars and use as active skills.
Spells Categories & Customisation
In Diablo 4, all of the different spells for all of the different classes are separated into what seems to be six different groups based on the class. In a lot of the early user interfaces, each of these categories had its own keybind. So you can either click to the left, to the right, one, two, three, or four.
This user interface made it look like you couldn't use different keybinds for different spells in the same category. Now, this has been cleared up by the developers since then. You can put any spell you want on any of the different keybinds. They are not put into these strict categories.
You can put all the spells from one category on all the buttons on your action bar if you want to. You can use any spells you want together.
To make things a little easier, we'll go over these spells in their different categories with this specific keybind that is next to that category.
For the sorcerer, the six categories are:
- Minor destruction, which is on the left click.
- Major destruction, on right-click.
- Defensive, which is on one.
- Conjuration, which is on two.
- Mastery, which is on 3.
- Ultimate, which is on 4.
As of right now, we have four different spells that cause minor damage. First, we have Lightning, which sends out a bolt of lightning that hits nearby enemies and does 30% less damage to each one.
The next one is Fire Bolt, which sends out a flaming bolt that hurts enemies and keeps hurting them for 8 seconds. This does damage with fire.
