Diablo 2: Resurrected - 2 builds for the sorceress, explained quickly and easily

Diablo 2: Resurrected offers 7 classes with countless ways to skill them. So that you don't lose the overview, We briefly introduces you to 2 strong builds for the sorceress here in the guide.


What kind of builds are these? The sorceress is one of the most popular classes in Diablo 2 and is characterized by her diverse, magical abilities. It is known for its great damage potential and its ability to control opponents.


We presents you here 2 builds with which you ideally play the sorceress: Blizzard and Blitz. Both are great for farming, and they have their own advantages and disadvantages:


  •     For beginners and co-op gameplay, the Blizzard build is better
  •     For the absolute end game, the Blitz build is stronger 


In the individual sections we show you the advantages and disadvantages of the individual builds and explain which skills you need and how you can best distribute the attributes. There are also tips for your equipment, play style and a gameplay video.

Blizzard Sorceress - The perfect build for co-op 

Pro
  • does not require expensive gear
  • strong control through frost effects
  • can graze most farm spots well
  • ideal for preparing other builds if necessary
Con
  • less mobile, the most important skill is stationary
  • virtually no chance against opponents with cold immunity
  • ideally needs a team 
You need these skills:

  •     Warmth (fire) - 1 point
  •     Static field (lightning) - 1 point
  •     Telekinesis (lightning) - 1 point
  •     Teleport (Blitz) – 1 Punkt
  •     Ice armor - 1 point
  •     Frostnova - 1 point
  •     Eisblitz - 20 points
  •     Ice rush - 20 points
  •     Blizzard - 20 points
  •     Glacier needle - 20 points
  •     Cold Mastery - Sufficient points to bring enemy resistance to -100%
  •     Sphere of Frost - All remaining points 

Skill warmth and ice armor early as these will help you with the leveling process. You do damage at the first levels, especially with Eisblitz, which is why points should also be invested here early. Telekinesis and teleport are useful tools to explore. However, you will only need Blizzard itself later. 

A sample build for the Blizzard Sorceress. Cold control and frost sphere can vary.

This is how you set the attribute points:

  •     Strength - Enough to wear appropriate equipment
  •     Dexterity - Enough to have 75% chance to block (only with shield and only hardcore)
  •     Vitality - You put all remaining points in vitality
  •     Focus - no points 

Which items are important? For the Blizzard Sorceress, you should as many "+ Skill" items own and wear as possible - especially those that give a bonus to cold skills. Otherwise you are quite free in the choice of your items. However, pay particular attention to the following properties:

  •     +Skill
  •     higher cast rate
  •     Resistance and recovery after a hit
  •     higher chance of magical items 

The Tal Rasha set is a popular choice for most sorceress builds and is also great for the Blizzard sorceress. Especially if you want to play other builds like Blitz later on, you are ideally prepared.

The rune word “insight” (weapon) is useful for your mercenary. This grants an aura for mana regeneration and increases the probability of finding magical objects.

A companion from Act 2 with defensive or offensive skills is best suited as a mercenary.

How do I play the build? When leveling, you mainly play with Eisblitz and a glacier needle. With Eisblitz you cause a lot of damage and can freeze enemies for a long time, but the skill flies quite slowly. Glacier needle reliably hits multiple targets, but freezes them for a shorter time.

Once you start farming, your main damage will come from Blizzard. Set the ability on as many opponents as possible and let them stay in the area as long as possible. To do this, pull them behind you ("kite") and use teleport if necessary. 

In the video you can watch the build and the gameplay of the lightning sorceress by Diablo 2 experts dbrunski: 




Lightning Sorceress - The build for maximum damage 

Pro
  • with the highest damage output in the game
  • very mobile
  • can farm almost anywhere with the right setup
  • easy to play
Con
  • Only intended for the end game, a lot of farm necessary for the gear
  • little variety, can quickly become monotonous 

You need these skills:

  •     Ice armor (cold) - 1 point
  •     Warmth (fire) - 1 point
  •     Comboblitz - 20 points
  •     Nova - 20 points
  •     Lightning strike - 20 points
  •     Chain lightning - 20 points
  •     Lightning mastery - 20 points
  •     Static field - 1 point
  •     Telekinese - 1 Point
  •     Teleport – 1 Punkt 

At the beginning the points in the ice armor and warmth are important. These help you enormously while leveling through the protection and regeneration that they offer. You should also learn teleport and telekinesis as early as possible. Otherwise, your most important spell early in the game is lightning. 

The skill for the lightning sorceress. You can distribute the remaining 5 points freely - for example in other controls.

These attributes are important:

  •     Strength - Enough to wear appropriate equipment
  •     Dexterity - Enough to have 75% chance to block (only with shield and only hardcore)
  •     Vitality - You put all remaining points in vitality
  •     Focus - no points 

Which items are important? For the Blitz Sorceress, you should as many "+ Skill" items own and wear as possible - especially those that give a bonus to Blitz skills. Otherwise you are quite free in the choice of your items. However, pay particular attention to the following properties:

  •     +Skill
  •     higher cast rate
  •     Resistance and recovery after a hit 
However, the rune word "infinity" (weapon) is particularly important for your mercenary. This also gives your companion some lightning skills and also provides a higher chance of magical items. 

A companion from Act 2 with defensive skills is best suited as a mercenary.

How do I play the build? Your main spells will be lightning bolt and chain lightning. Lightning strikes only a single target or targets in a row, but deals more damage. Chain lightning hits multiple targets one after the other, but costs significantly more mana.

Teleport allows you to move quickly across the maps and look for groups of monsters. You then do this with your Blitz skills or let your mercenary do the work - for example if the resistances are too high.

Since the sorceress can be used in a variety of ways, the builds give you a lot of freedom to adapt your play style with certain items. Just remember to equip your mercenary well - it will help you enormously, especially in solo play.
