Diablo 4 Enchantment Slot [Complete Guide]

The enchantment slot in Diablo 4 is a unique class feature for the Sorcerer that allows players to add special effects to their abilities by attaching them to this slot. In this guide, I discuss how to obtain and use this slot mechanic as well as talk about my own experience using this unique feature.

Key Takeaways

  • The enchantment slot is a unique class feature for the Sorcerer class only that buffs Sorcerer abilities.
  • To get the first slot, reach LvL 15 and complete Legacy Of The Magi, a priority quest.
  • The second slot is achieved at LvL 30.
  • PC players can drag and drop a skill into the enchantment slot, while those with a controller have to select the ability and move their left thumb stick upwards.

Here is my summary table for the enchantment slots for the Sorcerer class:

  • To obtain the first one, get to Level 15 and finish Legacy Of The Magi, a priority quest designed only for the Sorcerer class. We highly recommend you watch this video for a visual walkthrough of this quest.
  • For the second slot, simply reach Level 30 to unlock it.

How To Use

Here is how you can attach your desired skill to the enchantment slot:

For Mouse:

  • Open up your skill tree.
  • Select the Skill Assignment option on the bottom right of your screen.
  • At the bottom, you’ll see enchantments with at least 1 empty slot towards the left.
  • With your mouse, click-drag your skill choice toward it to imbue it with the enchantment effects.

For Controller:

  • Follow the same method mentioned above, except you must select the ability you wish to bind and then push upwards on your left control stick to attach it.

Remember that you can only use permanently unlocked abilities in the enchantment slots. You can also simultaneously use your enchantment abilities without discarding them from the active tab section.

How I Used Enchantment Slots

Enchantment slots are perfect for buffing abilities, be they previously useless or already overpowered abilities. After acquiring them for my Sorcerer, I immediately applied my first enchantment to Chain Lightning. This allowed me to cast this crowd-controlling ability automatically as long as I had a good amount of mana.

For my second slot, I chose to enchant Flame Shield. Flame Shield is already a pretty strong ability that protects me from incoming enemies. And with the enchantment, it automatically activates whenever my player takes fatal damage. Hence, it kind of gave me a second life. It does have a 120-second cooldown. But it was worth it whenever I took tons of damage.
