Enchantress Sorceress Build for Diablo 2 Resurrected

Last updated on Sep 30, 2021 at 10:00 by MrLlamaSC 1 comment

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.

1.

Introduction

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 Enchant to shine.

You can check the viability of this build in PvM by consulting our PvM Tier List.

The following section shows the core skills for the Enchantress. For a detailed breakdown of all core and optional skills as well as the recommended order for allocating skill points, refer to the Skills page of this guide.

  1. 1 point to all prerequisites
  2. 20 points to Enchant Enchant — main damage boost Skill, required
  3. 20 points to Warmth Warmth — synergy for Enchant Enchant, required
  4. 20 points to Fire Mastery Fire Mastery — added damage for Enchant Enchant, required
  5. 1 point to Teleport Teleport — invest immediately at level 18, required

Note that since Enchant Enchant is only available from level 18 onward, playing as an Avenger from the start of the game is not possible. For a smoother leveling experience, we recommend using a generic Sorceress build. Upon reaching level 18, you can respec into using Enchant or can wait until finding solid gear. For more information, refer to the Early Leveling section of this guide.

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.
