As one of the most popular characters in Diablo 2 Resurrected, Sorceress is chosen by many players for its simple operation, especially for the newbies. Actually, Sorceress may be relatively disadvantaged in terms of bearing damage after Hard and Hell. You can choose hireling in Act 2 to help you endure damage. The followings are the best scheme about Sorceress.

In such a way, most enemies can be eliminated before they come to you.
