Diablo 3 is getting a bit long in the tooth and Diablo 4 is still miles away from release, but thankfully, Blizzard is ready to release Diablo 2 Resurrected, a long overdue remake of the classic Action RPG from over 20 years ago.
This may be your first time playing, or perhaps you've battled the forces of Hell once before. Either way, it's understandable that you could be wondering which class to pick from. No bother, have a quick read of our Diablo 2 Resurrected Tier List ranking ALL classes from best to worst.
However, it might be you know which class you want to pick and now you need a little bit more help working out the best build to assemble.
Again, we've got you covered, and on this page we're taking a look at the Best Sorceress Builds in Diablo 2 Resurrected. We want to help sort your S Tier builds from your F Tier flops.
All Diablo 2 Resurrected Sorceress Builds
Commanding the elements, the learned Sorceress dispatches enemies from afar with calculated blasts of fire, cold, and lightning spells—invaluable skills against the armies of the Burning Hells.
When it comes to the Sorceress class there is A LOT of build options in Diablo 2 Resurrected. Eleven, to be more specific. Here are your potential options:
- Blizzard Sorceress
- Lightning Sorceress
- Fireball Meteor Sorceress
- Fireball Blizzard Sorceress
- Fireball Nova Sorceress
- Meteorb Sorceress
- Frozen Orb Sorceress
- Bear Sorceress
- Zeal Sorceress
- Fireball Sorceress
- Hydra Sorceress
And here's a little taster of what the Sorceress Class has in store for you:
Is The Sorceress Good In Diablo 2 Resurrected?
Obviously, this is a very subjective question to start with and we'll try to give you as honest an answer as possible. But equally, it's very open to interpretation, especially when there are so many different factors to consider with every class and build.
For instance, some builds are fantastic at farming specific areas of the game or certain Uber Bosses who are useful for farming high-level loot. Another build might be tailored specifically for Solo Speedruns, when you're simply trying to complete Act 1 to Act 5 in as fast a time as possible on your own. Likewise, you might want a class or build that is geared towards farming Hell Andariel and Mephisto when attempting that late-game grind.
There's a wide variety of factors to consider.
Now, with so many build options for the Sorceress, the question remains, is this a good class? We'd have to say yes.
The Sorceress has two S-Tier options, and 3 A-Tier options. Now, technically that's one more option than all S-to-A Tier options from the Amazon, Assassin and Druid class combined.
So yes, Sorceress looks to be king, or rather queen, in Diablo 2 Resurrected.
What Is The Best Sorceress Build in Diablo 2 Resurrected?
Based on everything we've seen, the best Sorceress build for Diablo 2 Resurrected appears to be the Blizzard Sorceress Build. Although the Lightning Sorceress is also a good S-Tier option.
However, it's the Blizzard Sorceress Build that comes out on top and is well suited for farming gear from Hell Andariel and Mephisto, High mob density farming as well as Pindleskin Farming.
Keep reading, we'll explain everything you need to set up this particular build, including your gear, active skills, passive skills and more.
Blizzard Sorceress Build Stat Points Setup
Strength - This stat will determine the type of gear your Sorceress can equip, as well as your potential melee damage. Our build suggests opting for a Monarch Shield, and that will require 156 Strength to use this item. Beyond this though, you don't really need to waste any more stats on strength.
Dexterity - This stat will have a huge bearing on your block chance and attack rating. For the Blizzard Sorceress, you should only invest as much as you need to meet gear requirements. Don't add more than you need though.
Vitality - This determines your Blizzard Sorceress' health, stamina total and stamina recovery stats. Once you've invested in the required Strength and Dexterity stats you want to put all remaining points into Vitality.
Energy - This stat will determine your Mana total and mana recovery. Although you're going to need Mana for this build, you don't need to put points into Energy, as you should have more than enough already.
Blizzard Sorceress Build Best Gear
The below is the best possible gear worth targetting for a standard Blizzard Sorceress Build.
- Head - Harlequin Crest Shako

These are the main skills you need to worry about and where possible max out as they will form the backbone of your Blizzard Sorceress build.

The Best Mercenary For Blizzard Sorceress Build
We would pick the Nightmare Act 2 Offense Mercenary with Might Aura which can be hired from Greiz's Desert Warriors. Combine this with the Infinity Giant Thresher (weapon), Fortitude Sacred Armor (body armor), and Andariel's Visage Demonhead (Helmet) for the most optimum build.
