This build is a great one for storming through Sanctuary and slaying Lilith’s minions, but once you enter the endgame, it may be time for a build with more longevity.

Legendary Aspect

While there are many great Legendary Aspects in the Codex of Power that will help this build, there are three in particular that you need to prioritize for this build. Here’s what they are and where to find them:

  • Offensive Aspect of Control – (Sunken Library, Kehjistan)
  • Defensive Aspect of Disobedience – (Halls of the Damned, Kehjistan)
  • Prodigy’s Resource Aspect (Witchwater, Hawezar)

Each one will essentially buff your damage in various ways and make your build even more deadly.

We’d recommend not imprinting these Aspects on your weapons, as you’re likely to replace these many times on your Leveling journey. Instead, add offensive Aspects to your jewelry, this way, it can continue to serve you well into endgame.

Vampire Powers

Select the following Vampire Powers for this build:

  • Ravenous (Minor)
  • Flowing Veins (Major)
  • Anticipation (Minor)
  • Metamorphosis (Major)
  • Prey on the Weak (Minor)

The Sorcerer is still a mighty option for the endgame of Diablo 4.

This is your choice of course, all builds will work, but based on the current meta, the below Sorcerer endgame build is the best in Season 2.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the buffs from other elements, even if you focus on a build that makes primary use of one or two different ones.
