Diablo 4 Best Druid Leveling Build

Diablo 4 is a game where selecting the ideal build for each situation is critical, but it is also a difficult undertaking. In this new installment of the famed Blizzard series, players will be able to select from a broad variety of goods, skills, and weaponry. As a result, it comes to reason that creating the optimal construct would not be an easy undertaking. However, do not be concerned.

This article will provide you with the information you seek: Diablo 4 best Druid leveling build. After reading everything we have to give, the Druid class will be no longer a mystery to you, and you will be able to level up as quickly and effectively as possible in order to better prepare for the Diablo 4 Season 1 release date and the game's endgame.

Companion Druid build explained

Building the perfect build isn't easy, but with the advice we'll give you it will be child's play. First, let's tell you that the Companion Druid build is very effective both in dealing damage to opponents and in increasing your defense so that you can take as little damage as possible. This duality of the build allows you to progress through the game with relative ease, preparing you to then switch to one of the builds dedicated to the endgame. This build is mainly characterized by the use of companions that allow you to use two defensive skills that will come in handy, especially against the most difficult enemies to face.

As usual, skills play a fundamental role in the construction of a build, being the heart of the build. For this reason, it is important that you choose the most useful skills to unlock and upgrade first, and then leave the others for the final stages. Among the skills you will need to unlock first are the following:

  • Storm Strike (lvl 1-4, Enhanced, Fierce)
  • Tornado (lvl 1-5, Enhanced, Primal)
  • Cyclone Armor (lvl 1-5, Enhanced, Innate, Preserving)
  • Blood Howl (lvl 1-5, Enhanced)
  • Poison Creeper (lvl 1-5, Enhanced, Brutal)
  • Wolves (lvl 1-5)
  • Call of the Wild (lvl 1-3)

There are also other skills that will prove to be very useful during your adventure, especially when you find yourself in more advanced stages and with a higher character level. However, those on which we advise you to focus your attention are those we have just mentioned, as they represent the most useful skills without which it would not be possible to build this Diablo 4 Druid build.

As far as ways to play, this is one of the easiest builds to use. You can make use of the Poison Creeper ability to eliminate all smaller and weaker enemies by dealing large amounts of aerial damage to them, while the Wolves ability can be used against single targets. It is important to note that both of these skills have cooldown periods, but it is possible to enable Spirit Bonds that allow you to reset these cooldown periods. The Spirit Bonds in question are the following:

  • Packleader
  • Scythe Talons
  • Wariness
  • Overload
  • Swooping Attacks

As your main ability, you can use Storm Strike, which allows you to apply a Vulnerable state to three enemies at a time, as well as giving you the possibility of taking less damage. You can then make use of the other skills to inflict greater damage on your enemies, especially the more powerful ones, always keeping in mind the fact of also making use of the defensive skills Cyclone Armor and Blood Howl which allow you to repel enemies and have self-healing powers. Finally, you can also rely on the Predatory Instinct and Call of the Wild skills which increase the chance of landing a critical hit and the damage inflicted by our companions.

As for weapons and stats, as with any Diablo 4 build, for the Druid build you will need to pay close attention to the Item Power: the higher the Item Power, the greater the damage inflicted. It should be kept in mind, however, that there are cases in which weapons with lower Item Power are more effective when paired with certain weapons or if particular stats are applied. For this reason, we invite you to pay close attention to this aspect. Additionally, we recommend that you consider the following statistics:

  • DPS value of weapons and off-hands
  • Critical Strike Chance
  • Cooldown Reduction
  • Lucky Hit Chance
  • Rank to Wolves and Poison Creeper
  • All Damage
  • Companion Damage
  • Vulnerable Damage

These are just some of the statistics that we advise you to keep an eye on and modify, but the game offers many others. Our advice, as usual, is to experiment as much as possible until you have found the ones that best suit your needs and your way of playing.

As for the Legendary Aspects, once you visit the Occultist, the Druid class offers several Aspects that can be taken into consideration when creating this build. Each of them is good for something different, so it's highly recommended to make use of all of them to make your build as effective as possible. The Legendary Aspects are:

  • Aspect of the Alpha (Wolves companions transform in Werewolves companions and deal +75%-100% more damage)
  • Nighthowler's Aspect (Blood Howl increses Critical Damage by +5%-10%)
  • Aspect of Cyclonic Force (Cyclone Armor also provides Physical Damage Reduction)
  • Aspect of Might (Basic Skills grant +20% Damage Reduction for 2-6 seconds)
  • Rapid Aspect (Basic Skills gain +15%-30% Attack Speed)
  • Edgemaster's Aspect (Skills deal up to x10%-20% increased damage based on your available Primary Resource when cast)

In conclusion, we close this article by talking about gems, elixirs, and potions. As for the gems, since there are many in Diablo 4, we have decided to show you the ones we consider the best for this type of build. The gems you should rely on are:

  • Weapon: Topaz for Basic Attack Damage
  • Armor: Ruby for Maximum Life
  • Jewelry: Any Gem that gives the Resistance type you are lacking the most

Finally, as regards elixirs and healing potions, our advice is, as usual, to go to the alchemist whenever you can to upgrade both objects. These upgrades are essential to increase duration and effectiveness, two key aspects if you want to continue in the game without having too many difficulties. The elixirs we recommend you use are those that increase your stats and experience gained for 30 minutes, one to increase your Resistance, Iron Bard for Armor, and Assault for Attack Speed.
