Diablo 4: Best Sorcerer Build Guide

I. Overview:

After comprehensively analyzing the skills, peaks, and equipment of all the characters in the Diablo 4 beta version, it has to be said that "the Sorcerer is still the archmage!" Only the Sorcerer combines three major skills: fast movement, prolonged invincibility, and automatic tracking. Other characters either lack prolonged invincibility skills or have short legs, which makes one suspect that Blizzard intentionally favors the Sorcerer in their design.

Why do I value prolonged invincibility skills so much? Because some boss skills can instantly kill characters, and there is also PvP chaos. Without prolonged invincibility skills, it's easy to get wiped out.

Furthermore, the Sorcerer has an invisible, powerful skill that reduces the cooldown time of all skills 2014—Summon Ice Blade: 50% cooldown reduction of Ice Blade applies to your other skills. Additionally, two enchantment skills can be triggered without the need for additional equipment, effectively adding up to eight skills.

II. Skill Tree Guide

1. Overall strategy:

Use Flame Shield, ice armor, and Deep Freeze as defensive skills, and Teleport as a quick movement skill. The main attacking skill is frozen orb, which is a wide-range AoE (Area of Effect) skill, while the secondary attacking skill is Hydra, a sustained single-target attack skill. Both attacking skills have no cooldown time and rely entirely on the energy system, giving you initiative.

Frost Nova and Ice Blade serve as enchantment skills. Enchantment skills are used to trigger Vulnerability and Frozen effects. The Vulnerability effect is also for triggering the special effect of Summon Ice Blade. The crowd control effect is freezing.

This skill build guide takes into account both PvE and PvP, so you can't use summoning skills exclusively as in previous setups. Summoning skills are most vulnerable when facing multiple monsters or enemy players with summoning pets, and they will be routed by invisiable Rogues.

However, Frozen orb + Hydra is an excellent combination.
