Once your character reaches level 50, you can use the Paragon progression system, which offers you access to a multitude of talents for the Earthen Bulwark Detonation build. It is encouraged to prioritize Normal and Magic Nodes over other nodes when considering factors like Damage, Intelligence, Resistance, and Life. The impact of Ghyphs grows with each level you reach. As a result, we do not advise allocating more nodes if you are unable to comply with the requirements. On the other side, if you don't have the required Glyph, you can use any other Glyph while you wait to get it.

Follow the way left, then climb the hill to the Glyph Socket, taking Tenacity for the Starter Board. Werewolf should be inserted into the Glyph Socket while utilizing neighboring Willpower nodes. Consider the rare nodes Resolve, Prime, and Impel. From Impel, ascend to the Inner Beast board attachment point, placing the Glyph Socket beneath the Legendary Node.

On behalf of the Inner Beast Board, toward the Glyph Socket as you ascend. Fill in surrounding Dexterity nodes by inserting Territorial into the Glyph Socket. Take Determination, then ascend and to the right to take Tenacity, and finally take any nearby Armor Magic Nodes. To take Nimble and all Attack Speed Magic Nodes, move left and up from the Glyph Socket. To attach the Heightened Malice board, go to the left and rotate it three times in the clockwise direction with the Glyph Socket on the bottom right.

In relation to the Heightened Malice Board, Take Sinking Fangs and Nature-Born with you as you descend and turn left in the direction of the Glyph Socket. Go left from Sinking Fangs to finish the Willpower nodes required to trigger the Additional Bonus, then put Earth and Sky into the Glyph Socket. Take Poisoned Condition on your route to the Legendary Node as you head left and up. Take the Heightened Malice Legendary Node by going up and to the left.

In relation to the Earthen Devastation Board, attach the Earthen Devastation Board to the Heightened Malice Board's south gate by spinning it two times counterclockwise while the Glyph Socket is raised and to the left of the Legendary Node. Approach the Glyph Socket from below. Take Resolve and Earthen Power, and insert Fang and Claw into the Glyph Socket. Take advantage of the neighboring Magic Nodes with Earth Skills to deal Critical Strike Damage. For the Fang and Claw Additional Bonus to be activated, move the Willpower nodes in the direction of Crushing Earth. To get Crushing Earth, ascend and turn left. Retrace your steps and turn right from Earthen Power to access the Legendary Node for Earthen Devastation.

In relation to the Lust for Carnage Board, Attach the Lust for Carnage board with the Glyph Socket above the Legendary Node from the left gate of the Heightened Malice board. Take Wild's Call and any nearby Attack Speed Magic Nodes as you head left and downward. Retrace your steps and head up and left in the direction of the Glyph Socket. Place Undaunted while adding nearby Intelligence Nodes.

On behalf of the Thunderstruck Board, Go left from the Glyph Socket, with the Thunderstruck board attached, from the left gate of the Earthen Devastation Board, with the Glyph Socket at the top right. approaching the Glyph Socket, ascend and turn right. Placing Shapeshifter in the Glyph Socket will allow you to steal Hubris and all Damage Reduction from Vulnerable Enemy Magic Nodes and fill in neighboring Dexterity Nodes. Deluge and the five surrounding Magic Nodes can be taken by going left and down farther.

The Earthen Bulwark Detonation build's primary method of doing damage is via igniting Innate Earthen Bulwark damage events by releasing a large amount of Earthen Bulwark. Following, there are some relevant factors to think about. When an Earthen Bulwark is recast while it is still in effect, your Barrier will be refreshed and a detonation will occur. A high Base Damage is possessed by Innate Earthen Bulwark. The typical multipliers, such as Critical Strike, Critical Strike Damage, Crowd Control and Poison enhancements, Earth or Nature-based boosts, and Critical Strike Damage, all increase its damage. A further multiplier that other Skills do not provide is added on top of all of those by Barrier Generation, which increases the damage.

Earthen Bulwark's detonation damage will increase thanks to Willpower and Quickshift because it is an active skill. Such factors as Earthguard Aspect or Weapon DPS are unaffected by Innate Earthen Bulwark. The Gear Affixes will be more significant than the weapon damage when determining a decent Greatstaff of the Crone. The damage done by Innate Earthen Bulwark does not depend on skill ranks for Earthen Bulwark. It is possible to commit too many Skill Points because Earthen Bulwark's maximum Barrier value is dependant on base life. This means that if you have a sufficient amount of barrier generation, Earthen Bulwark will let you flex skill points. Additionally, the Maximum Life Gear Affix won't increase the cap because of this.

Make sure to collect any unusual item drops that may contain upgrades if you're farming with a Druid who employs the Earthen Bulwark Detonation Druid build from Diablo 4. It is best to save the characteristics of legendary artifacts so that you can later take the desirable characteristics and imprint them on correctly rolled uncommon items. Swords are preferred over daggers when comparing weapons of the same item level because they deal more damage per hit and implicit critical strike damage.
