Diablo 4 has been leading the charts for a hot while now. It is only natural for it to get regular content updates based on that success. This Sorcerer Paragon Board Diablo 4 guide will cover some of the most recent content added to Diablo 4 for all the different classes.
What Are Paragon Boards In Diablo 4?
Paragon Boards are a new game system added in Diablo 4 that introduces a lot of unique content for players to enjoy. Simply put, Paragon Boards are additional levels you can add to your character once you max out the base experience level.
Therefore, you do need to be at least level 50 to unlock these boards for your character. Our guide will only focus on the Paragon Boards for the Sorcerer class. However, these boards are available for every class currently in Diablo 4.
The Class Board for each class will always have the following configuration:
- You will have access to 1 Gylph Socket.
- 1 Legendary Node.
- 6 Rare Nodes.
- 30 Magic nodes
- A variable amount of Normal nodes that will give you flat stat increases (+5).
- Lastly, four possible Board Attachment Gates to start with.
What Are Glyphs?
Simply put, Glyphs are special items that you can fit into your Paragon Board for additional stats. They are items that are obtained like normal loot; from bosses or dungeons. You can fit at most one Glyph on your board, but normally, you will use 3-4, depending on the situation you’re in. There are two types of Glyphs, Magic and Rare.
The Sorcerer Paragon Board In Diablo 4
Now that we know what a Paragon Board is, it’s time to see what the Sorcerer Paragon Board has to offer. You can mix and match various glyphs based on your playstyle. We will discuss some of the popular builds in the section that follows.
The general rule of thumb is to go for Rare Glyphs. Unlike some of the other class Glyphs, the Sorcerer class Glyphs are already considered high-tier, which, in turn, means that it is significantly more difficult to obtain them as loot.
The first of the two types of runes up for discussion are the Rare Glyphs. Rare runes are better in terms of power and stats and boost more area on your board. Despite the name, they aren’t that rare, so you’ll likely have more than you know what to do with.
The Rare Glyphs you’ll access as a sorcerer are listed as follows:
|Adept||For every 5 Intelligence within range, Mastery Skills gain +2.0% increased damage.|
|Charged||For every 5 Intelligence purchased within range, Crackling Energy deals +2.6% increased damage.|
|Conjurer||For every 5 Intelligence within range, Conjuration Skills gain +2.6% increased damage.|
|Control||For every 5 Dexterity purchased within range, you deal +3.0% increased damage to Crowd Controlled targets.|
|Destruction||For every 5 Dexterity purchased within range, Core Skills deal +2.0% increased Critical Strike Damage.|
|Electrocute||Paragon nodes within range gain a +15.0% bonus to their Lightning damage and damage reduction modifiers.|
|Elementalist||Paragon nodes within range gain a +15.0% bonus to their Non-physical damage and damage reduction modifiers.|
|Enchanter||For every 5 Intelligence purchased within range, you deal +1.3% increased Non-physical damage.|
|Exploit||For every 5 Dexterity purchased within range, you deal +1.0% increased damage to Vulnerable targets.|
|Flamefeeder||For every 5 Dexterity purchased within range, you deal +2.0% increased damage to Burning targets.|
|Frostbite||For every 5 Willpower purchased within range, you deal +3.0% increased damage to Chilled targets.|
|Pyromaniac||Paragon nodes within range gain a +15.0% bonus to their Fire damage and damage reduction modifiers.|
|Reinforced||Grants +25.0% bonus to all Rare nodes within range.|
|Tactician||Grants +25.0% bonus to all Rare nodes within range.|
|Territorial||For every 5 Dexterity purchased within range, you deal +2.0% increased damage to Close targets.|
|Torch||For every 5 Willpower purchased within range, you deal +2.0% increased Burning damage.|
|Unleash||Grants +30.0% bonus to all Magic nodes within range.|
|Warding||Grants +25.0% bonus to all Rare nodes within range.|
|Winter||Paragon nodes within range gain a +15.0% bonus to their Cold damage and damage reduction modifiers.|
Magic Runes are rare and class-specific runes that boost your class abilities and skills. However, some classes share some of the Glyphs, but not all.
The Magic Glyphs that you can use as a Sorcerer are given below:
|Advantage||For every 5 Willpower purchased within range, you gain +1.1% increased damage to Crowd Controlled targets.|
|Ruin||For every 5 Dexterity purchased within range, you gain +0.6% increased Critical Strike Damage.|
|Slayer||For every 5 Dexterity purchased within range, you gain +1.1% increased damage to Elites.|
|Subdue||For every 5 Dexterity purchased within range, you gain +0.4% increased damage to Vulnerable targets.|
|Wisdom||For every 5 Intelligence purchased within range, you gain +0.5% increased damage.|
Best Sorcerer Paragon Builds
With the new Paragon Boards, many new builds have been introduced for each class. This section will discuss some of the best Sorcerer Paragon Board Diablo 4 builds. Some of the builds do synergize well with some of the popular Sorcerer Builds already used by a lot of players.
The first type of build you can go for is the Control and Exploit one. These two Glyphs harmonize spectacularly with status-affect-based builds. The Control build will help you with Crowd Controlled enemies. Crowd Control affects being Frozen, Stunned, Slowed, or Chilled targets. Similarly, the Exploit build will help you maximize the damage you deal to enemies under the mentioned Crowd Control effects.
The next type of build is focused on the sustain aspect of a Sorcerer as they are Glass Cannons (high damage but die very easily). The Imbiber Glyph will help you buff your health to allow for a relatively more tanky build. Additionally, the Glyph will also boost the efficiency of any Health Pots you use. The Territorial Glyph focuses more on the defensive stats, which ultimately allows you to stay alive longer.
Finally, the time has come to conclude our Sorcerer Paragon Board Diablo 4 guide. Hopefully, you learned all you needed to about the additional leveling system for the new classes, particularly the Sorcerer. If there is something you wish to add, feel free to use the comments below.
