How To Utilize Enchantment Slots

Each class in Diablo 4 possesses a game-altering Specialization ability that awaits players at level 15, after completing a class-specific quest. Sorcerers have access to Enchantment Slots, which provide extensive customization options by allowing passive casting of any learned skill (excluding Ultimate Skills). The activation of these skills varies depending on the chosen spell and often includes unique enhancements to the original spell.

Before utilizing these incredible Enchantment Slots, players must first reach level 15 and complete all steps of the Legacy of the Magi questline. This quest appears as a Priority Quest and directs players back to their initial spawn point after starting a new game. The nearest Waypoint is the eerie town of Nevesk, and players should head southwest from there until they encounter the NPC Mordarin.

Aspects play a crucial role in character development in Diablo 4. Having the right Aspects on your gear can be the determining factor between success and failure, and mishandling them can significantly impede your progress. This guide has been updated to include embedded links to a comprehensive list of Codex of Power Aspects available for Sorcerers and their respective locations. Additionally, it provides a list of weapons for Sorcerers that feature desirable Aspects for different builds.

Legacy of the Magi

Initiate the quest by speaking to Mordarin, who will instruct players to head east towards the Lost Archives dungeon. This dungeon currently houses the Aspect of the Protector and is an excellent choice for Sorcerers, as it grants a temporary shield to any class engaged in combat with an Elite enemy. It is highly recommended for early-game players.

For now, set the Aspects aside and venture into the dungeon to begin exploration.

The Dust-Covered Chest

The key item, The Forgotten Codex, is located inside a Dust-Covered Chest in the eastern section of the central room (the one with the Necromancer’s Coffin in the center). Two elite enemies guard the chest, marked by skull icons on the map, but they pose no significant challenge to a skilled magic wielder. Defeat the hordes and their Elites, open the chest, and acquire the key item. Optionally, players can complete the rest of the dungeon to obtain the Aspect by opening the coffin in the middle of the map after placing two Mechanical Boxes on the pedestals of the boss. Other dungeons also offer various Aspects to add to your Codex of Power for the Sorcerer. Some Aspects may already be present in your weapon of choice and can seamlessly fit into your build. Afterward, exit the dungeon and return to Mordarin, who should be waiting in the same spot where players left him.

The Abandoned Shack

Engage in a brief dialogue with Mordarin before entering the Abandoned Shack to assist him in preparing his dubious ritual. In the center of the room, four torches represent the four elements. Thankfully, players are not required to cast spells of each element to progress. Simply approach each torch to activate them and initiate the ritual. As is customary in Diablo, demonic interference and unexpected complications are to be expected. Defeat the waves of demons, speak to Mordarin once more, and the quest will be completed! The Legacy of the Magi remains a mystery, but Enchantment Slots are here to stay.

How To Utilize Enchantment Slots

Locating the Enchantment Slots may not be immediately apparent, as they are located at the bottom of the Skills Menu. Open the menu to discover two additional slots at the bottom, with one already unlocked and the other becoming available at level 30. Both slots function in the same manner, allowing players to assign any skill (excluding Ultimate Skills) to these passive Enchantment Slots.

Wait, Passive Skills?

Enchantments are passive versions of active skills and come with unique visual effects and activations. For example, the popular Fireball Skill gains an intriguing passive effect. Slain enemies trigger a chain reaction of Fireballs, dealing half damage to nearby enemies. Another example is the Firewall, which grants any enemy a 5% chance of spawning two Firewalls beneath them whenever they take burning damage.

Top 5 Sorcerer Enchantments

To avoid overwhelming the list, here are five excellent choices for Sorcerers seeking the perfect Enchantment. While it is advisable to explore the entire range of spells, these five options will provide a strong foundation. First on the list is the Fireball-infused exploding corpses, ideal for dealing AoE damage and effortlessly handling groups of flammable enemies. Flame Shield acts as an automatic Phoenix down, activating upon fatal damage and undergoing a 2-minute cooldown after each use. Ice Armor enhances the Sorcerer’s defenses, with a 5% chance to cast automatically when receiving damage. Teleport replaces the dodge ability with a significant 17-second cooldown, allowing for efficient teleportation without sacrificing a valuable Hot Bar slot. Lastly, Lightning Spear will be automatically cast in 10% of cases when the player absorbs crackling energy, making it ideal for lightning mages who frequently create Crackling Energy. With 21 Skills to experiment with, Sorcerers have the most significant potential for customization when it comes to Specializations.

As an added convenience, the Enchantment system allows players to actively use the same spell that is assigned to the Enchantment Slots (there are no limitations based on the spells currently in the Hot Bar). This covers the essential information aspiring Sorcerers need to know about Specializations. Now, go forth and wield the power of fire!

Every class in Diablo 4 has a game-changing Specialization ability waiting in the wings for players to reach level 15 and complete a class-specific quest. Sorcerers gain access to massive customization capabilities through the use of Enchantment Slots, which allow for passive casting of any currently learned skill (excepting Ultimate Skills).

Before taking advantage of these awesome Enchantment Slots, players must reach level 15 and complete every step of the Legacy of the Magi questline. The quest pops up as a Priority Quest automatically, dropping a point of interest all the way back to where players first spawned after starting a new game. The nearest Waypoint is the memorably-creepy town of Nevesk, and players should head directly southwest from there until they find the NPC Mordarin.

Updated by Chad Thesen on July 2,2023: Aspects are a massive part of building your characters in Diablo 4. Having the right ones on the right gear can be the difference between success and failure and can greatly slow down your rate of progression if handled poorly. This guide has been updated to feature embedded links to both a list of all the Codex of Power Aspects you can get your hands on for your Sorcerer and where you can find them. As well as a list of weapons for the sorcerer that includes great Aspects you will want in builds.


Legacy Of The Magi

Diablo 4 - Sorcerer - Legacy of the Magi - Map 01

Speak to Mordarin to kick off the quest, which prompts players to head east toward a nearby dungeon by the name of Lost Archives. Incidentally, this is an Aspect dungeon which is currently home to the Aspect of the Protector. This is a great Aspect for Sorcerers, as it grants a temporary shield to any class currently combating an Elite enemy. It’s highly recommended for early-game players. Aspects aside, for now, head on into the dungeon and start exploring.

The Dust-Covered Chest

Diablo 4 - Sorcerer Legacy of the Magi - Dust-Covered Chest

Players need to find a key item called The Forgotten Codexwhich is sealed away in a Dust-Covered Chest located to the east of the central room (the one with the Necromancer’s Coffin in the center). Two elite enemies will be standing guard, marked by skull icons on the map, but they’re nothing a master of magical violence can’t handle. Defeat the hordes and their respective Elites, open the chest, and scoop up the key item.

Optionally complete the rest of the dungeon to get the Aspect by opening the coffin in the middle of the map after placing two Mechanical Boxes on the pedestals of the boss. There will be plenty of Aspects to add to your Codex of Power for the Sorcerer in other dungeons too. Some Aspects will already be part of your weapon of choice and fit nicely into your build. Then, head on out of the dungeon and back to Mordarin, who should be standing right where the player left him.

The Abandoned Shack

After a brief dialogue, head into the Abandoned Shack and help Mordarin prepare his dubious ritual. There are four torches representing the four elements in the center of the room. Fortunately, players don’t need to summon spells of each element to proceed. Simply approach each torch to activate them, which will kick off the ritual. As per the Diablo rules, expect demonic interference and things to just generally go wrong. Defeat hordes of demons, speak to Mordarin one last time, and the quest is complete! The Legacy Of The Magi remains a mystery, but Enchantment Slots are here to stay.

How To Use Enchantment Slots

Finding the Enchantment Slots isn’t immediately obvious, as they are tucked away at the bottom of the Skills Menu. Open up that menu and notice two additional slots now available at the bottom; one opened up, and another awaiting level 30. Both slots function the same way and allow players to map any skill (except Ultimate Skills) to these passive Enchantment Slots.

Wait, Passive Skills?

Diablo 4 - Sorcerer Enchantment Slots 04

Enchantments are passive versions of every active skill, accompanied by unique expressions both in form and activation. For example, the fan-favorite Fireball Skill attains an interesting passive effect. Killed enemies explode in a chain reaction of Fireballs, doing half damage to every enemy in proximity. Another incinerating example is a Firewall, which gives any enemy an automatic 5% chance of spawning two Firewalls beneath them any time they take burning damage.

Top 5 Sorcerer Enchantments

Without making this list too exhaustive, here are five great options for the Sorcerer seeking the perfect Enchantment. It’s well worth exploring the entire repertoire of spells, but these five should get the (fire)ball rolling.

  1. First up is, of courseFireball-infused exploding corpses. This skill is particularly solid for AoE damage, handling hordes of flammable enemies with relative ease.
  2. Flame Shield is basically an automatic Phoenix down (wait, wrong game). Flame Shield automatically activates upon fatal damage, with a 2-minute cooldown period after each instance.
  3. Similarly, Ice Armor is a great way to boost the flimsy defenses of the average Sorcerer. Any incoming damage will spark a 5% chance of automatic Ice Armor being cast on the player.
  4. Teleport will automatically replace dodge with a sizable 17-second cooldown afterward. This is a great way to Teleport without wasting a valuable Hot Bar slot.
  5. For lightning mages constantly creating Crackling Energy everywhere, Lightning Spear will be automatically cast in 10% of cases whenever the player absorbs crackling energy.

With 21 Skills to try out, Sorcerers may very well inherit the most significant customization potential when it comes to Specialization potential. As a final convenience of the Enchantment system, players can use the same spell actively and passively (Enchantment Slots aren’t limited by which spells are currently in the Hot Bar). That’s all aspiring Sorcerers need to know about Specialization. Now go play with fire.
