Sorcerer class has its fan following in Diablo 4, and for good reasons. It has some of the best skills in the game. However, the additional perk of an exciting feature, the Enchantment slot, makes it even more interesting and useful in Diablo 4. This new feature lets players get the best out of a skill that might not be useful without it. Let us dig into it in detail.

Key Takeaways

  • The already famous Sorcerer class in Diablo 4 becomes more desirable and efficient when progressing through the storyline when players unlock the enchantment slot. Enchantment slots are exciting new additions in Diablo 4, allowing players to utilize their weaker skills in more efficient and upgraded ways.
  • Players can use their skills with enhanced offensive, improved defensive, and strict healing capabilities. The game has two enchantment slots; players can unlock them at levels 15 and 30, respectively.
  • Unlocking the first enchantment slot at level 15 requires players to fulfill the Legacy of the Magi quest in Diablo 4. However, the second slot will automatically unlock when players reach level 30 in the game.
  • The Legacy of Magi quest tasks players with retrieving the Forgotten Index from the Lost Archives dungeon on command of the Sorcerer Mordarin. Players can access and play this quest immediately after reaching level 15 in the game.
  • After unlocking the enchantment slots, open and expand your abilities menu and drag your skills in the enchantment slots to enchant them in Diablo 4. You can put any skill in the enchantment slot except for the ultimate skills in Diablo 4.

Enchantment Slot

Sorcerer Class players can unlock two enchantment slots after reaching levels 15 and 30 in Diablo 4. Dragging your skills into these enchantment slots will allow players to get the passive buffs and further empower their skills in Diablo 4. Consequently, players can improve their weaker skills and be useful in combat.

Similarly, as this feature is exclusive to the Sorcerer class only, players from this class get a notable advantage over other classes in Diablo 4. Here is what players can expect when placing their skill in the Enchantment Slot in Diablo 4:

  • Enhanced abilities to launch powerful offensives against multiple targets.
  • Improved defensive capabilities to survive destructive attacks.
  • Better availability of resources to fight away groups of enemies while maintaining a positive health bar.
  • Utilize various effects to empower every attack for additional damage.

These additional perks do not stop here. Players can put their skills into these slots and use enchanted and action-bar skills simultaneously. Similarly, do not be shy to put your upgraded skills in the enchantment slot, as your upgrades will stay on your skill while you can also get the passive buffs in Diablo 4. 

Ensure you have enough skill points in your inventory, as it will cost you a skill point each time you put your skill into these enchantment slots. Furthermore, putting ultimate skills into these slots would not do you any favor, as they can’t be enchanted in Diablo 4.

How To Assign Skills To Enchantment Slots

Assigning skills to an enchantment slot is a rather straightforward and effortless process. Here is how you can do it in Diablo 4:

  • While in your gameplay, open the Abilities menu by pressing the A button on your PC. Xbox players can get it from the menu by pressing the RB button. 
  • Expand the menu for a wider and more complete view of the skills screen by pressing the red arrow on PC and Right Stick on an Xbox controller.
  • At the bottom of your screen, you will see the Skill Assignment option. Simply click on the tab on your PC or press the left stick on your Xbox controller to open the tab.
  • Drag the skill you want to enchant in the enchantment slot on your PC. However, Xbox players can do it by clicking on the skill and confirming the shift from one place to another.

As simple as that, players can now access and utilize these enchanted skills during their gameplay and progress through the storyline even quicker.

How To Unlock Enchantment Slot

As said above, players can unlock the first enchantment slot once they reach level 15 in Diablo 4. However, the slot will not be unlocked automatically. Players must do some hard work and complete the Legacy of Magi quest first. Here is our step-by-step guide to complete the Legacy of the Magi quest in Diablo 4:

  • Start by interacting with Sorcerer Mordarin at the start of your quest and take his instructions about retrieving the Forgotten Index from the Lost Archives dungeon. Players can find the sorcerer in the southwest of Nevesak, where the quest starts.
  • Now, start your voyage to the east of your starting point and keep looking for the Halls of Knowledge on your map. As it is impossible to identify the exact location of the Lost Archives on the map, you will have to roam around the area to locate it in Diablo 4.
  • You will probably find it inside the dungeon in a dusty chest. While you could leave immediately after getting the Forgotten Index, we suggest you go through the dungeon to unlock more exciting rewards.
  • Return and give Mordarin the retrieved item. Light up the four braziers and fend off enemies while Mordarin finally concludes his ritual to unlock the first enchantment slot in Diablo 4.

While completing the Legacy of the Magi quest at level 15 will unlock the first enchantment slot only, progressing through the storyline and surpassing level 30 will automatically unlock the second enchantment slot. Make sure to unlock many skills before reaching these enchantment slots and test them all to choose the best option for yourself.
