Ball Lightning Sorcerer Best Endgame Build S2

Ball Lightning Sorcerer Best Endgame Build S2

As someone that’s been running Ball Lightning since the launch of Diablo IV, this has been my favorite build since the beginning. This season, Ball Lightning Sorcerer is arguably the best build in the entire game! This build is great for mobbing, nightmare dungeons, and boss killing. With the right gear you can start seeing individual damage numbers exceeding 1M! You’re also extremely tanky with the barriers, damage reduction, and map wide CC. There are a couple different ways to play this build depending on if you want to full send damage or turn your brain off and just spam balls.

How the Build Works

This build is all about momentum and maintaining a circle of Ball Lightnings around you. You essentially want to think of yourself as a turbo charged lawn mower. Main things to focus on would be the spacing of your defensive skills to maintain barriers and CC’ing elite groups, using Flame Shield and Teleport when you need instant mana, and spamming Esu’s Heirloom to keep up movement speed and crit chance. Also for bosses start spamming balls right before they spawn and walk in a counterclockwise circle to hit as many times as possible while still picking up Crackling Energy.
