Diablo 4 Sorcerer Paragon Board [Guide + Upgrades]

Paragon Board is a late game skill tree system for Sorcerers to boost stats and character abilities. This guide will give you a run down of Paragon Board and how to use it in your gameplay!

Diablo 4: Sorcerer Paragon Board

Paragon Board is a way for Sorcerers to upgrade their skill tree nodes to enhance skills, abilities, and stats. I personally found the Sorcerer Paragon Board helpful when experimenting with the Sorcerer. Therefore, go through this guide to learn more about it!

Key Takeaways

  • The Sorcerer Paragon Board is a late-game skill tree that unlocks after level 50.
  • Multiple Paragon Boards connect to extend the skill tree to unlock more nodes. 
  • A total of 220 points are allowed to spend on the board.
  • In my opinion, you must experiment with a few boards, such as Icefall or Frigid Fate, that increase the Frozen Damage and hits on the unprotected foes.

Paragon Points

  • The complete tree consists of various nodes that players upgrade using the Paragon Points.
  • You will receive a single Paragon Point on each quarter increase in your current level.
  • Moreover, exploring each region of Sanctuary grants 4 points.
  • Note that you can have 20 points when you complete all the regions.
  • Max limit of paragon points is 220, which is usable on the Paragon Board. 

Node Types

  • The nodes we mentioned earlier categorize into multiple rarity levels for a better understanding of the players.
  • These are NormalMagic, Rare, and Legendary.
  • Furthermore, new extensions to the board can be attached using the Gate tiles that include more skill upgrades.
  • The higher the rarity level, the lesser their use on the Paragon Board.
  • Note that you can use multiple Normal nodes in a single panel, but they only buff the basic stats.
  • In addition, for advanced enhancement, players can equip Paragon Glyphs on the Glyph Sockets that introduce new secondary abilities.

Paragon Point Allocation

At level 50 on Sorcerer, you will have access to the Normal nodes only that give +5 to basic stats. As you progress, you will start unlocking higher-level nodes that allow higher upgrades for your abilities.

Once you reach the end of a Paragon Board, a Gate node will attach another board to the previous one to keep the skill tree going.

Attaching new Boards is essential as it allows you to understand your character’s stats deeply for better growth. Before connecting the new board, you are given leverage to overlook its stats and what nodes it has. Once joined, those nodes will be accessible to you for upgradation purposes.

These Paragon Board connections can go on forever hence think before you use Paragon Points, as they are limited.

Node Advantages

As mentioned, the nodes will give you stats buffs, improve the damage you deal with, and make your ability usage powerful. There are Rare Nodes that have specific requirements that you must fulfill before you unleash their full potential.

The skill descriptions will also help you understand whether you want to use it.

The Best Paragon Board Upgrades

The Best Paragon Glyphs

Many Paragon Glyph options available to the players, but the rare pieces are considered the best. Players can get them when progressing in the game through combat with Elite enemies and BossesFarming hot spots such as the Nightmare Dungeons have an increased chance of having Paragon Glyphs in them.

I recommend you to invest points in ExploitTerritorial, Control, and Imbiber. Control is more concentrated on how to crowd control the enemies. If combining Control with Exploit, they provide big damage buffs during battle. Looking further into it, Territorial and Imbiber are useful for Sorcerers to survive as they are health potions and defense providers. 

Frigid Fate Paragon Board

This particular board can increase the damage dealt to unprotected enemies coming from the Rare and Magic nodes. To attach this board, you must follow the instructions given below.

  1. Turn your current board so that Guarded becomes close to the entrance.
  2. Make your way up towards Frigid Fate.
  3. Take a quick right towards Weakness.
  4. When you reach the Glyph node, go toward the right-hand gate to reach Oppressive, which should do the job.

Other Optimizations

You can also rely on another type of board, such as Icefall. It is very powerful against Frozen enemies as Icefall provides Damage as well as a barrier for defense. To attach it, follow the given steps.

  1. Turn your board so Legendary Board is at the left gate.
  2. Join a path from Burning Instinct so you can get the Polar Prime
  3. Make your way towards the Frost and eventually get to the Glyph Node.
  4. Start the path from Enchantment Master to obtain Cryomancy so you can reach Icefall.

These board connections are very useful for Sorcerers as they tend to help them a lot in their gameplay.
