Complete overview of all Sorcerer talents and skill points requirements.

Sorceress Talents

The Sorcerer class has access to 37 different talents (passive skills) in Diablo 4.

As more points are allocated into the skill tree, additional talent choices become available. Unlike skills, however, talents are passive. This means that you do not have to actively equip them in order to use them.

Each talent can be given up to 3 skill points, except for the powerful Capstone talents, which can only be given one skill point.

For a detailed list of Sorceress skills, refer to our skills page.
