Diablo 4 Season 3 hasn’t made huge changes to the game’s meta, but its gameplay included Vault Dungeons that greatly affect how Druids engage in combat.

How to play the Pulverize Werebear Druid build in Diablo 4

The Pulverize Druid build in Diablo 4 uses AoE skills and Werebear Skills to help you deal damage consistently. The primary skill here is obviously Pulverize, as it turns you into a Werebear, and other crowd-controlling abilities add various debuffs to opponents as well.

You also don’t need to worry about defense with this build as you’ll frequently get the Fortify effect that boosts damage reduction in the game. Here’s an attack rotation that’ll help you understand the playstyle of this build better:

  • Wind Shear> Pulverize > Blood Howl > Poison Creeper> Ravens >Wolves

Pulverize Werebear Druids should start using Wind Shear, which helps them with Spirit Generation while doing considerable damage to lower-level enemies. However, Pulverize will be the main skill to use to deal huge AoE damage while reducing points from incoming attacks.

Using Blood Howl in combination with Wind Shear, Abundance, and Clarity will let players spam the ability without having Spirit regeneration problems. This skill will let Druids shapeshift into a wolf, regenerate their HP, and also boost their Maximum Life.

Casting Poison Creeper will let druids deal a considerable amount of Poison damage while Immobilizing enemies for over 2 seconds. Since this skill has a long cooldown, it can be mixed with Ravens, an ability that also calls a companion that attacks enemies and considerably boosts the Critical Strike Chance.

Finally, Pulverize Werebear Druids can complete their pack by casting Wolves, which don’t deal a lot of damage but work great to absorb incoming damage from enemies.

Best Paragon Board for the Pulverize Werebear Druid build in Diablo 4

How to play the Lightning Storm Druid build in Diablo 4

The Lightning Storm Druid in Diablo 4 works with a combination of Storm Strike and Lightning Storm, with melee and ranged attacks that must be combined to generate Spirit. This build has excellent AoE damage and a strong self-heal thanks to Blood Howl.

This build works thanks to the Unique Helmet called “Tempest Roar,” which makes the base Storm Skills to be also Werewolf Skills. The “Tempest Roar” also gives the following buffs to the Lightning Storm Druid when fully upgraded:

Article continues after ad
  • +[11.2-18.8]% Damage while Shapeshifted
  • +[15.0-22.5]% Critical Strike Damage
  • +[7.5-16] Maximum Spirit
  • [20.2-42.8]% Poison Resistance
  • Lucky Hit: Storm Skills have up to a [15 – 25]% chance to grant 4 Spirit.

The best attack rotation for the Lightning Storm Druid is to hit as many enemies as possible with Lightning Storm so you can channel it until it reaches a full amount of strikes (you can achieve this by casting the skill at least once every 6 seconds).

Grizzly Rage > Lightning Storm >Hurricane >Blood Howl (to keep up Vilirance or generate Spirit) > Cyclone Armor > Storm Strike.

Best Paragon Board for the Lightning Storm Druid build in Diablo 4

You can use your Paragon Points on the following nodes and Glyphs to make the strongest end-game Druid in Diablo 4:

Please note that this type of board works best if you’ve got the “Tempest Roar” Helmet equipped, although if you’re running without it, you should target the Spiritual Power, Harmony, and Resolve after grabbing the Legendary Node.

Remember to activate the Paragon Board’s Nodes in order so you can get the best of your powers while leveling up your build.

How to play with the Trampleslide Druid build in Diablo 4

The Trampleslide Druid build in Diablo 4 is one of the most difficult to get since it’s going to need both Aspect of the Trampled Earth and Symbiotic Aspect to get it to work.

If you manage to farm them, then you’ll be able to use the full power of the Trampleslide Druid. Here’s an attack rotation that’ll help you understand the playstyle of this build better:

Article continues after ad
  • Trample > Wind Shear > Hurricane > Earthen Bulwark > Poison Creeper > Landslide

Using Trample will let you quickly charge against enemies, becoming Unstoppable and knocking down any opponent. This will also allow you to quickly cast Landslide to crush your enemy.

While waiting for these skills cooldowns, use Wind Shear as much as you can for Spirit Generation as well as for applying the Vulnerable state to the other player. You can combine this skill with Earth Spike from your passive Nature’s Fury, which will reduce cooldowns.

Two key skills to get out of trouble are Hurricane and Earthen Bulwark. Hurricane will let you deal damage and slow down enemies while waiting for your cooldowns to finish; Earthen Bulwark will clean any DoT effects and grants you a rock barrier to absorb incoming damage.

Using Poison Creeper will also let you immobilize your opponent, which is a great opportunity to cast Landslide and crush your vulnerable enemies.

Best Spirit Boons for Druid in Diablo 4

The Druid class in Diablo 4 has access to Spirit Boons that help in improving several aspects of your build. There are four spirits (deer, eagle, wolf, and snake), and these are the boons we recommend taking from them:

  • Prickleskin (Deer) – Gain additional Thorns.
  • Avian Wrath (Eagle) – Additional 30% Critical Strike damage.
  • Calamity (Wolf) – Extend the duration of Ultimate Skills by 25%.
  • Masochistic (Snake) – Critical hits with shapeshifting abilities can heal you for 3% of max HP.
  • Overload (Snake) – Lightning DMG has up to 40% chance to cause additional Lightning DMG to nearby enemies.

Best Druid attributes in Diablo 4

While building the best Druid in Diablo 4, you must focus on getting these attributes from gear and other sources:

  • Intelligence – Helps in generating Spirit and you can use core skills like Lightning Storm more often.
  • Willpower – Increases all skill damage and the healing you receive through potions, boosting attack and survivability at the same time.

While these are the core stats, your skills should provide attributes such as Vulnerable Damage, Critical Strike Chance, Critical Strike Damage, and Core Skill Damage, as they are the main source of your damage.

Best Gems for the Druid in Diablo 4

Gems are added to your Diablo 4 gear, and here are the ones that work best with the Druid class:

  • Rubies boost Spirit regeneration and all Druid builds benefit from this. In the Storm build, you’ll be able to use Lightning Storm more frequently which essentially is a major damage boost.
  • Druid class is not too mobile which is why you’d want Amethysts in your Armor sockets. They reduce the damage you take over time and considering the lack of mobility, you’ll be vulnerable to such attacks.
  • Place Diamonds in Jewelry to gain resistance to all elements. This isn’t too specific but prepares you for all the enemies in the game. You can also use Royal Skulls instead of Diamonds as they cover physical damage resistance as well.
