Sorcerers in the world of Sanctuary are individuals wielding the powers of magic. They are generally split up into many different mage clans, with the Vizjerei being the most prominent one.
Although practitioners of the mystic arts are scarce within the often superstitious and religious lands of the West, many magi have made the pilgrimage from the Far East to see for themselves what horrors lie beneath the ruined Cathedral of Khanduras. The veiled Brotherhood of the Vizjerei, one of the eldest and most dominant mage-clans of the East, has sent many of its acolytes to observe the dark events unfolding in Khanduras first hand.
The Vizjerei, known for their brightly colored Turinash, or spirit-robes, have taken a keen interest in both gathering knowledge of demons and seeing them slain. The Vizjerei elders hope that their acolytes will learn the secrets of the dark evil that they sense growing in the West and can destroy it. The possibility of discovering long-lost tomes of magical knowledge within the confines of the labyrinth has also captured the interest of many wandering Sorcerers.
Most magic in Khanduras is in the form of enchanted items and elixirs. The Eastern Sorcerers have developed a greater understanding of spellcasting than the other classes, and 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 channelling them through the staff.
 More Info
The Sorcerer article is strongly related to Diablo, but the main bulk of information on this topic is specifically related to Diablo I or Diablo II. Due to the large amount of information that is unique to Diablo I and II versus Diablo III, we have separated them into two wikis. DiabloWiki contains lore, characters, locations as well as general Diablo information and is the main wiki, but a lot of Diablo I and Diablo II information is available in Diablo2Wiki.
This is such a case, and you can find the full Sorcerer article on the following Diablo2Wiki page:
