Sorcerers are a type of magic-user.


"The power of magic suffuses every part of the sorcerer's being, every moment of their lives. It is part of what they wear, what they carry, and how they die."



A Sorcerer

Sorcerers are mysterious Mages from distant Eastern lands, and are largely of the Vizjerei Clan. Sorcerers have developed a greater understanding of spellcasting when compared to the magic of Khanduras, which is in the form of enchanted items and elixirs. While a Vizjerei neonate knows only the simplest of spells to start, he can expect to rapidly grow in power as he discovers new incantations. All Sorcerers possess the ability to recharge spell staves by drawing power from their surroundings and channeling them through the staff.[1]

Sorcerers were also employed by Ureh.[2]

Many Sorcerers were seen in Tristram during the time of its darkening.[1]

  • In Diablo I and Diablo II, the Sorcerer and Sorceress had different backgrounds, with the former referring to a Vizjerei Clan magic-user, with the latter referring to a Zann Esu Clan magic-user. As of Diablo IV, "Sorceress" and "Sorcerer" appear to be used interchangeably based on gender, rather than background.
