The Sorcerer’s spells in Diablo 4 make use of different elements. Moreover, the class has a unique mechanic where abilities can provide passive procs. Here’s our Diablo 4 Sorcerer Enchantment guide to help you unlock these powerful passive bonuses.

The Diablo 4 Sorcerer Enchantment slots are unlocked at levels 15 and 30. As of now, we’re not sure about the requirement for the level 30 slot given that the beta caps characters up to level 25 only.

However, the first slot at level 15 does have a class-specific quest called Sorcerer: Legacy of the Magi. Make sure you’re tracking it so that it’s marked on your map. Here’s the gist:

You’ll have to return to the southwest of Nevesk. It’s basically where you started the campaign.There, you’ll meet a Sorcerer named Mordarin, who asks you to retrieve the Forgotten Codex. The item can be found in a nearby dungeon.The dungeon itself has its own reward, though the Forgotten Codex can be looted from marked chest. Clear the dungeon if you want, but you do need to bring the book back to Mordarin.You’ll then enter a hut where you have to interact with four braziers. Mordarin will attempt to harness the elements, but he accidentally summons demons instead.After killing the demons, you’ll unlock the Diablo 4 Sorcerer Enchantment slot for your level 15 character.Mordarin wants you to pick up a quest item. It’s found in a chest in a nearby dungeon.

Once you have a Diablo 4 Sorcerer Enchantment slot, you can select any active spell (i.e. non-passive and non-Ultimate) that has at least one rank. This can come from a skill point allocation or, even better, any item that adds a rank. For instance, if you have a random amulet that grants +1 to Teleport, then it’s as though Teleport has been unlocked even though you didn’t use a single skill point.

In any case, go to the Abilities panel and click on Skill Assignment. The bottom section is where you can pick a spell that will have an extra effect enabled. These Diablo 4 Sorcerer Enchantment slots offer amazing boons that are quite different from their usual effects as active skills. Most will even proc regardless of the ability you use to defeat enemies or trigger the effect.

A single rank/level for a spell counts as an unlock even if it came from an item’s rolled properties. This lets you pick a spell that you didn’t put a single skill point into.Basic Skills: Spark – +12% chance to form Crackling Energy when you kill an enemy.Fire Bolt – Additional 48 burning damage for eight seconds after dealing direct damage.Frost Bolt – +15% chilling effect from direct damage.Arc Lash – Stun enemies for 0.5 seconds after you use a cooldown (i.e., dash).Core SkillsFireball – Enemies you kill explode in a Fireball that does 50% of its damage.Ice Shards – Automatically conjured and fly toward frozen enemies.Chain Lightning – Automatically formed whenever you spend 100 mana.Charged Bolts – 40% chance to release Charged Bolts when you stun an enemy.Incinerate – A serpent will Incinerate enemies every 20 seconds.Frozen Orb – Any non-Basic skill you cast has a 20% chance to launch Frozen Orb.Defensive SkillsFlame Shield – Automatically activated whenever you take fatal damage; can only occur once every 120 seconds.Frost Nova – +30% chance to unleash Frost Nova when casting Conjuration skills.Ice Armor – +5% chance to apply Ice Armor whenever you’re hit.Teleport – Your evade is replaced by a short-range Teleport with a 17-second cooldown.Conjuration SkillsIce Blades – Every 20 seconds spent in cooldowns will spawn an Ice Blade on a random enemy.Hydra – A five-headed Hydra spawns each time to spend 300 mana.Lightning Spear – +10% chance to create a Lightning Spear whenever you pick up Crackling Energy.Mastery SkillsFirewall – +5% chance to spawn two Firewalls underneath an enemy whenever they take burning damage.Blizzard – A Blizzard will form around you every 15 seconds.Meteor – Lucky Hit; +3% chance that a Meteor falls on enemies.Ball Lightning – Lucky Hit; +25% chance to spawn Ball Lightning whenever you land a critical hit.

With only one Diablo 4 Sorcerer Enchantment slot available at level 15, we suggest equipping Fireball. Every single kill you do will cause enemies to explode, which can lead to a chain reaction of explosions due to guaranteed procs.

Using the Fireball Enchantment leads to lots of foes going kaboom.

Diablo 4 is currently in its beta stage. As such, some of the information here may change as we get closer to the game’s official launch on June 6. We’ll update this guide accordingly. For now, you may visit our class hub.

Mobile ‘paid competitive gamers’ are on the rise Newzoo & MPL

Connect with top gaming leaders in Los Angeles at GamesBeat Summit 2023 this May 22-23. Register here. Newzoo and Mobile Premier League (MPL) released a report this week about paid competitive games (PCG). According to the report, this new subsection of mobile games represent a new and growing form of game monetization. By the report’s definition, PCGs are skill-based mobile games that offer monetary rewards, and players earn those rewards by participating in PvP contests. It’s separate from play-to-earn games, though both categories reward players with monetary prizes. P2E games tend to reward players with cryptocurrency while PCGs offer real money. PGCs account for 7% of the global consumer spending on games, and Newzoo expects it to rise to 14% by 2024. Notably, PCGs are formatted as ”skill-based”

Like A Dragon Ishin: A mini-review Kaser Focus

Connect with top gaming leaders in Los Angeles at GamesBeat Summit 2023 this May 22-23. Register here. It’s a strange week when the announcement of Counter-Strike 2 is the highlight. We had a lot of interesting news from GDC, and peeks at upcoming games like Redfall and a TMNT game adaptation of The Last Ronin. But I’ve been in a mood to talk about games themselves. So indulge me while I talk about a title that got eclipsed when Resident Evil 4 Remake dropped into my lap: Like A Dragon: Ishin! I returned to playing the game after RE4R and have a few thoughts about it. Ishin takes place in Bakumatsu-era Japan, and follows a fictionalized telling of real ronin Ryoma Sakamoto. He, like every other character in

The enduring legacy of Gordon Moore

Connect with top gaming leaders in Los Angeles at GamesBeat Summit 2023 this May 22-23. Register here. Gordon Moore, the elder statesman of the technology industry, passed away today at the age of 94. He was one of the nation’s greatest citizens as a pioneer of the semiconductor industry and chairman emeritus of Intel, which he cofounded in 1968. He was known for formulating Moore’s Law in 1965. He predicted that the number of components on a chip would double every couple of years or so. That prediction has held up remarkably well for about 58 years. In 1965, chip makers could fit about 64 transistors on a chip. By 1971, Intel could fit 2,300 transistors on its first microprocessor, the Intel 4004. Nvidia can now put 80

Reigning VALORANT world champions use an unstoppable comp on Lotus

LOUD remain at the top of the VALORANT world, having been crowned the game’s second-ever world champion in 2022 and just missing out on making history in the LOCK//IN finals earlier this month. Heading into the first-ever VCT Americas season, LOUD is a heavy favorite to qualify for both Masters Tokyo and Champions 2023 with its South American roster not missing a beat despite replacing two of its players. Aside from boasting one of the most well-respected lineups in the world, however, LOUD has demonstrated time and time again how there are levels to their approach to the game from a strategy standpoint, and the team recently showcased this on Lotus. During LOCK//IN, LOUD actually didn’t play the newest VALORANT map until its very final best-of-five series. Despite

Funko Has Laid Off Mondo Staff, But Its Movie Poster Business Will Continue

It’s the end of an era for movie fans, as Mondo will reportedly no longer produce unique and stylish movie posters.
