Diablo 4 | Best Druid build

For this build, we're going all in on the Werebear form! The Pulverize skill, specifically speaking. this ability when built around can become a great foundation for a powerful werebear build, allowing you to deal huge amounts of melee damage across all manner of content.

Also, it lets you experience one of the more entertaining aspects of the Druid class: transformation! You could absolutely play the class as nature spell caster and do well, but we wanted to do something that separates the class from your typical Sorcerer playstyle.

  • Iron Feather - Eagle spirit bond path
  • Obsidian Slam - Snake spirit bond path

Diablo 4 | Druid legendary aspects

For this build to excel, you'll want to head out and hunt down the following legendary aspects. You can use them to craft and use legendary gear, that'll provide some incredibly useful bonuses. For this build, we recommend you get the Aspect of Ursine Horror as fast as you can, as it provides the most significant increase in damage in combonation

  • Aspect of the Ursine Horror - Pulverize is now also an Earth skill. After casting Pulverize, tectonic spikes continue to deal damage over 2 seconds.
  • Aspect of the Trampled Earth - Trample now summons 6 Landslide pillars of earth during its duration. Trample is now also a Nature Magic and Earth Skill.
  • Aspect of the Rampaging Werebeast - The duration of Grizzly Rage is increased. In addition, Critical Strikes while Grizzly Rage is active increase your Critical Strike Damage for the duration.
