Diablo 4 Storm Wolf Druid build explained

A few Druid-class-specific Unique Items serve as the foundation of the Storm Wolf build. A special staff called the Greatstaff of the Crone transforms our Claw skill into a Storm skill and adds the ability to cast a Storm Strike that deals 120 to 150% more damage when used. With the help of our next Unique, Mad Wolf's Glee, which is a helmet called Tempest Roar, all of our Storm talents can now also be used as Werewolf skills. This special chest grants us a +2 rank bonus to all werewolf skills and causes us to always be in werewolf form.

At this point, it should be clear that emphasizing ability is one of the most important parts of character development. In Diablo 4, there is a large range of skills that may be used to enhance a class, so it's important to carefully choose the talents that fit best with the build you wish to create.

You can use the Paragon progression system, which gives you access to a variety of skills for the Storm Wolf build, once your character reaches level 50. When taking into account metrics like Damage, Intelligence, Resistance, and Life, it is advised to give Normal and Magic Nodes precedence over other nodes. With each level you gain, Ghyphs' sphere of influence expands. As a result, if you are unable to meet the requirements, we do not recommend allocating further nodes. If you don't have the necessary Glyph, on the other hand, you can utilize any other Glyph while you wait to acquire it.

It is important to allocate enough Intelligence within the Keeper Rare Glyph's radiance as soon as possible while placing it on the Starter Board. We do this by moving down the right side and crossing through the center. From that point, we ascended the left side to the top and the exit to our first actual board. The Thunderstruck Board is the original Paragon Board. To place the Werewolf Rare Glyph in the glyph slot and capture the Rare and Magic nodes as well as every Willpower node within the radius of the glyph, we travel along the bottom over to the Rare node on the left, then up through the Thunderstruck Legendary Node heading all the way up to the top right. We next take the left-hand path again, heading up to the top and out to our third Paragon Board.

The Paragon Board for Constricting Tendrils is the following board. The Fulminate Rare Glyph is placed first, then we move left and capture every Dexterity node in the vicinity as well as every Rare and Magic node. Following that, we actually turn around and go back to the beginning of this board, going up the middle and along the right to grab the Rare and Magic nodes. We then move left to grab the Constricting Tendrils Legendary node, before sneaking along the top right to grab the Rare and Magic nodes on our way out the right side.

The Lust for Carnage Paragon Board serves as the basis for our final board. In order to set the Guzzler Rare Glyph and then capture all the Intelligence, Rare, and Magic nodes within its radius, we start by moving straight right and then up. Following the Legendary Node Lust for Carnage, the Rare and Magic Nodes on the bottom left, and the Rare and Magic Nodes on the far right, we return to the beginning of the board and walk the path down to collect them.

When it comes to utilizing the equipment and skills we have picked, the Storm Wolf build is one of the simplest builds you will ever play. We are always in werewolf shape as a result of our unique selection. Only our Claw needs to be used to strike because doing so will also cast our Storm Strike, which has a chance to immobilize our targets thanks to Enhanced Storm Strike. We prepare Earthen Bulwark with Enhanced Earthen Bulwark as an additional layer of defense and an emergency Unstoppable in case we begin to be overrun by attackers. Due to Preserving Blood Howl, Blood Howl is not only a protective ability but also an offensive one.

One of our objectives is to always have Hurricane active because, while it is active, we have a +2 to all Shapeshifter Skills thanks to one of our Legendary Aspects. Cooldown Reduction and abilities like Endless Tempest are the means by which we do this. Claw has one of the highest base lucky hit probabilities of any Basic skill in the game, 50%, and since we convert it into a Storm Skill, we use it to activate a number of Lucky Hit talents on our tree and in our Spirit Bonds, including Elemental Exposure, Bad Omen, Electric Shock, and—because of the Aspect of the Legendary Mighty Storm—the Earthen Might Keystone Passive. Last but not least, we have Cataclysm, which is our ultimate ability. This ability gives us a significant damage boost and lasts for nearly 15 seconds thanks to our Calamity Spirit bond and the two abilities Endless Tempest and Prime Cataclysm.

If you're farming with a Druid who uses the Storm Wolf Druid build from Diablo 4, make sure to gather any uncommon item drops that can contain upgrades. It is advisable to store the traits from legendary objects so that you can later remove the desirable traits and imprint them on appropriately rolled uncommon items. When comparing equivalent item-level weapons, swords are recommended over daggers due to their higher damage per hit and implicit critical strike damage. When choosing clothing for the Storm Wolf build, the following stats need to be given the utmost consideration:

  • Helm
    • Tempest Roar
  • Chest
    • Mad Wolf's Glee
  • Weapon
    • Greatstuff of the Crone
  • Amulet
    • Melted Heart of Selig
  • Gloves
    • Lucky Hit Chance
    • Attack Speed
  • Pants
    • Life
    • Damage Reduction
    • Damage Reduction from Close Enemies
  • Boots
    • Damage Reduction while Injured
    • Fortify Generation
    • Movement Speed
  • Rings
    • Lucky Hit Chance
    • Resource Generation

Several gem, elixir, and potion suggestions will be given for the Storm Wolf Druid build as we draw to a close. We advise you to visit the alchemist often to create potions and elixirs that are more potent and durable. It is highly recommended that you consume Weak Assault, Precision, and any other elixirs for 30 minutes that increase your stats and give you more experience points. However, we advise you to rely on these strengths for your Druid:

  • Weapon: Royal Topaz for +Basic Skill Damage
  • Armor: Royal Ruby for +Maximum Life if you have Amulet, Royal Sapphire for Damage reduction while Fortified if you don’t
  • Jewelry: Royal Diamond for all Resistance or any gem that provides you with the resistance type you lack the most
