Diablo 4 – Sorcerer: Not What I Expected After 300 Hours of Gameplay
After 300 hours of gameplay, it is safe to say that Diablo 4’s Sorcerer class is not what I expected. As a long-time fan of the Diablo series, I was eager to dive into the latest installment and explore the new features and classes. The Sorcerer, in particular, caught my attention. Known for their powerful spells and magical abilities, I was excited to see how this class would evolve in Diablo 4. However, after spending a significant amount of time playing as a Sorcerer, I found that the class was not quite what I had anticipated.
From the outset, the Sorcerer class in Diablo 4 is presented as a master of elemental magic, capable of wielding fire, ice, and lightning to devastating effect. This is a familiar trope for the class, and one that I was looking forward to exploring. However, as I delved deeper into the game, I found that the Sorcerer’s abilities were not as diverse or as powerful as I had hoped.
One of the first things that struck me was the lack of customization options for the Sorcerer’s spells. In previous Diablo games, players could modify their spells in a variety of ways, tailoring them to their playstyle. In Diablo 4, however, the customization options are significantly reduced. This results in a more streamlined gameplay experience, but at the cost of player agency and creativity.
Furthermore, the Sorcerer’s spells themselves felt underwhelming. While they are visually impressive, their impact on the battlefield is less so. The damage output of the Sorcerer’s spells is noticeably lower than that of other classes, making it difficult to compete in higher difficulty levels. This is compounded by the fact that the Sorcerer’s defensive capabilities are also lacking, making them a fragile class that struggles in prolonged combat.
Another aspect of the Sorcerer class that surprised me was the emphasis on resource management. In Diablo 4, the Sorcerer’s spells consume mana, a resource that regenerates slowly over time. This forces players to be mindful of their mana usage, adding an extra layer of strategy to the gameplay. While this is an interesting mechanic, it feels out of place in a game that is otherwise focused on fast-paced, action-packed combat.
Despite these criticisms, there are aspects of the Sorcerer class that I enjoyed. The class’s mobility is excellent, with several spells allowing the Sorcerer to teleport across the battlefield, evading enemies and positioning themselves for optimal attacks. Additionally, the Sorcerer’s crowd control abilities are impressive, capable of freezing enemies in place or stunning them with a bolt of lightning.
In conclusion, the Sorcerer class in Diablo 4 is not what I expected. While it retains some of the elements that made the class popular in previous games, it also introduces new mechanics and limitations that change the way the class is played. The reduced customization options and the emphasis on resource management were particularly surprising, and not necessarily in a good way. However, the class’s mobility and crowd control abilities are commendable, offering a unique playstyle that sets it apart from other classes. After 300 hours of gameplay, I can say that the Sorcerer class is not what I expected, but it is still a class worth exploring.
Sorcerer is so much fun but it needs some big buffs & changes! Enjoy!
