Diablo 4: Sorceress Abilities

The onsite playable demo, streams and conferences allowed to discover the majority of the Sorceress' skills. As always, please keep in mind that all of this is likely to evolve between now and the release.

Skills are divided in a similar way to Diablo 3, i.e. by category, with a default location in the shortcuts, but it is possible to override this system and take several skills of the same type and/or assign them wherever you like.

Skill damage as well as some of the effects of the skills change with their level, unfortunately we don't have information on what they do at each level.
