Frost Sorcerer

This build is particularly used to freeze the enemy and make them vulnerable and chilled so that the maximum amount of damage is dealt to the enemy. One of the skills or enhancements used with this build is fire-based.

This is a highly efficient enhancement when an enemy is frozen, as a single explosion causes a chain reaction among all frozen enemies, causing massive damage. Therefore, Fireball is a very deadly skill if used effectively.

In Diablo 4, Frost Sorcerer can inflict 20% more damage on enemies by using frost bolt ice attacks. Other than this, Ice Blades are another incredible skill that renders the enemy vulnerable. Still, it is most essential to use summoned ice blades skill by which every 20-second player has a cooldown, and you will spawn on a random enemy.

Here are some of the active skills mentioned below for Frost Sorcerer:

Conjuration Skill Ice Shards Destructive
Mastery Skill  Blizzard Wizard

Some passive skills of a frost sorcerer include inner flames, protection, snap freeze, permafrost, hoarfrost, icy touch, avalanche, and many other skills which inflict additional damage on the enemy. Therefore, when used effectively, these active skills, passive skills, and enhancement cause severe damage to the enemy.

Fire Sorcerer

Fire Sorcerers are useful in close-range battles as, unlike Frost Sorcerers, they do not use enhancements and fire skills but rather burn the enemy by staying close to them. However, if Fire Sorcerer crafts their build carefully and uses the proper gear, they can prove deadly, especially in a sanctuary.

Fire Sorcerer may not be as powerful as frost sorcerer but can inflict a sufficient amount of damage to enemies when these active skills, passive skills, and enhancements are used wisely.

Lightning Sorcerer

Lightning sorcerers use the Chain Lightning skill, which allows players to damage the enemies they aren’t targeting. This makes fighting comparatively easier as the player doesn’t have to worry about minions running around the bosses. Even though some of the lightning skills aren’t that strong but can prove to be lethal when used with other passive and active skills.

Apart from active skills, Lightning Sorcerers also possess some passive skills and enhancements. Devastation, elemental dominance, static discharge, coursing currents, electrocution, convulsions, conduction, overflowing energy, and glass cannon are some of the passive skills of the lightning sorcerer. 

Lightning Sorcerer enhancements include fireball, spark, and lightning spear. When these enhancements are used effectively along with the skills, they make a deadly combo and can cause severe damage to the enemy.

After analyzing all three-sorcery build, we may conclude that the frost sorcerer has the highest damaging power and can deal with a group of enemies. On the other hand, a fire sorcerer does not inflict vast amounts of damage, but it is highly effective in close combat. Lastly, the lightning sorcerer may not be the best build, but it is still one of the best due to its wide range of attacks and ability to inflict damage upon the enemy without even targeting.
