Below are the best Druid Skills in Diablo 4 and the upgrades for them. Remember that their upgrades are based on your character cap of 25 with Diablo 4.
Basic Skill: Maul (Wild) – While starting the game, you will make use of this build very often. The build allows you to generate spirit which you will use to cast other skills.
When you apply the Maul build, you will be turned into a werebear. This will make you stronger and can unleash deadly salvors on enemies in one strike. The build has some percentage of lucky hits that will add extra damage to the enemy. The Basic Build can also be upgraded to enable you to know enemies with a single heat.
Spirit Skill: Pulverize (Primal) – This is an exceptional build in the game as is part of the AoE builds. When you apply this build, you will be transformed into a werebear and can strike the ground in your presents. This build allows you to heat devasting heat to foes in your radius.
When you come closer to an enemy, you will deal more damage to them. When the build is upgraded with Primal upgrade, you take 20% less damage when fighting. This build also allows you to take cover when you receive inflicting damage thereby regenerating your health again.
Defensive Skill: Debilitating Roar (Preserving) – Suppose you need that stunning defensive build in Druid, this will be your go-to. You will also retain the werebear form and roar to enemies which will reduce their damage by 50% every 4 seconds. When you apply the preserving upgrade, you can heal for 4% of your total health often.
Companion Skill: Ravens (Ferocious) – We choose the Ravens against the Wolves to build because the Ravens are more AoE than the Wolves. When you draw the attention of the Ravens for an attack, they will strike the target area for 6 seconds.
Also, when you battle without calling the Ravens, one of them will always follow you to attack random enemies. Once they hit an enemy, the enemy’s defense is weak and you can destroy them easily.
Wrath Skill: Trample (Savage) – This is another werebear skill, and this time players become unstoppable and charge forward, knocking down enemies that are in the way.
Not only does this deal massive damage to enemies, but it’s also a great way to get out of trouble if you’re surrounded by enemies or need to heal. The Savage upgrade grants you 20 extra spirits when used, which is terrific if you want to follow Trample up with another skill, such as Pulverize.
Ultimate Skill: Grizzly Rage (Prime and Supreme) – This is the Druid Ultimate skill which is the Grizzly Rage.
This is the last skill which also comes in the werebear form and you can become stronger than yourself for 10 seconds. You will also receive 20% bonus damage and 20% damage reduction. When the second timer starts, you will receive additional 3% damage every second.
HOW TO USE THE DRUID IN DIABLO 4
As discussed above, just like the Barbarian and Rogue, the Druid needs the skills above. It can be utilized to stun, poison, and reduce enemy armor. When you’re using any of the builds above, ensure to focus on one ailment for your build.
When you’re confronted by many enemies, you can apply different elements to destroy them. Never forget that the Druid’s werewolf form is very good for close-range combat. But it can’t be that powerful when enemies are much. Therefore, Earth Spike can be applied here to stun enemies while you can access Lightning Strike also.
You mustn’t have different kinds of builds and also many skills to meet up with every scenario you will face in the game. When you build different builds as detailed above, you won’t struggle to defeat enemies.
