Enchantress Sorceress Build for Diablo 2 Resurrected
The Enchantress can be used in a variety of ways, including enchanting your party members for overall party damage boosts, enchanting a Mercenary so he can bring Fire damage while your character does Cold or Lightning damage, or enchanting herself to become a Zealot utilizing the Passion Runeword. It is not an extremely common build, but it can be very strong and a fun twist to the Sorceress when specced appropriately.
The Enchantress can be built and used in a variety of ways. From helping low level characters gain massive Fire damage to progress through the game to enchanting herself and Zealing through the Chaos Sanctuary, there is a large variety of builds stemming from this one Skill. Check out your next team's composition when playing with some friends and maybe you will find a spot for Enchant to shine.

Enchantress Sorceress Breakpoints
In Diablo 2, stats that affect action speed (known as frames) for attacking, casting, blocking, and recovering from a hit can almost never be taken literally. For example, gaining 10% Increased Attack Speed from an item will not necessarily translate into 10% faster attacks. To achieve faster actions, certain breakpoints must be reached, which vary for every class. The tables below list how much of a given stat is required to actually improve the action speed of the class for the stated action.
