Diablo 4 Pulverize Druid build

Our Pulverize Druid build is one of Diablo 4's strongest endgame builds, with huge damage potential and the ability to tank through enemy hits without fear of frequently dying.

It's a rather simple build, with most of the damage coming from the titular Pulverize Core skill, so it's a perfect option for beginners.

Below, you'll find the most important skills for the Diablo 4 Pulverize Druid build:

  • Maul (Enhanced/Fierce)
  • Pulverize (Enhanced/Primal)
  • Earthen Bulwark (Enhanced/Preserving)
  • Debilitating Roar (Enhanced/Innate)
  • Trample (Enhanced/Natural)
  • Grizzly Rage (Prime/Supreme)

The Druid also has access to Spirit Boons, a unique class mechanic that gives you additional passive bonuses. For the Pulverize Druid, we'd recommend taking the Wariness, Iron Feather, Bolster, Masochistic, and Calamity Spirit Boons. The first four of these will make you more tanky with various effects that boost Life or damage reduction, while Calamity extends the effects of your Ultimate skill.

Diablo 4 Storm Druid build

Our Storm Druid build focuses more on Area of Effect (AoE) damage. You can inflict enemies with various debuffs, such as Immobilized, Vulnerable, and Stunned, and then pelt them with near-constant Lightning Storms that obliterate packs of enemies in moments.

Below, you'll find the most important skills for the Diablo 4 Storm Druid build:

  • Storm Strike (Enhanced/Fierce)
  • Lightning Storm (Enhanced/Primal)
  • Cyclone Armor (Enhanced/Innate)
  • Hurricane (Enhanced/Natural)
  • Trample (Enhanced/Savage)
  • Cataclysm (Prime/Supreme)

For your Druid Spirit Boons, take Pickleskin, Avian Wrath, Energize, Overload, and Calm Before the Storm. These will grant Thorns, increase your Critical Strike damage, give you chance to restore Spirit upon dealing damage, give you chance to have Lightning damage chain through groups of enemies, and give you chance to reduce your Ultimate cooldown when you use Nature skills, respectively.

That's a lot of information, but the general idea is that they will all help you either deal more damage, or keep your Spirit high so that you can keep casting skills such as Lightning Storm.

That wraps up our guide on the best Diablo 4 Druid builds. For other playstyles, check out our Diablo 4 Barbarian builds, Sorcerer builds, Necromancer builds, and Rogue builds.
