Diablo 4 Season 4: Best Fire Sorcerer Build Guide

Jul-10-2024 PST Diablo4

Players who invest in Fire builds for the Sorcerer in Diablo 4 are expected to dish out huge damage numbers. While Frost and Shock Sorcerers are known for their utility with debuffs like Stun, Chill, Freeze, and Vulnerable, the Fire Sorcerer focuses on raw damage. However, Diablo 4 has balanced the Fire build to also include effective crowd control, making it a viable and powerful choice.
