Diablo 2 Resurrected – Best Druid Builds

The Druid is certainly one of the most interesting classes in Diablo 2 Resurrected. It has three skill trees to choose from, including Elemental, Summoning, and Shapeshifting. That means there are a few different potential playstyles, and they are all completely different. When it comes to builds, we want to give a few options to new players or returning players to the game. Here are some of the best Druid builds in Diablo 2 Resurrected.

Like all Diablo 2 Resurrected builds, you will likely be utilizing some Rune Words, so check out our guide on that if you need to check the rune combinations.

Best Druid Builds in Diablo 2 Resurrected

Fury Build (PvM)

The PvM Fury Wolf Druid Build in Diablo 2 Resurrected is an excellent choice for playing against monsters. It’s not as effective for PvP, but it could still be fun if you wanted to duel. It is also not as effective as playing paladin for PvM, but it’s still quite strong for tanking damage and dishing it out. The spirits and summons also make them a good team class.

Keep in mind there are alternative builds out there and other possible gear choices. We try to provide an attainable build for someone who wants to put a decent amount of time into the Druid. Aim for a 42% FHR breakpoint by utilizing charms or alternative gear options in the list below.

Don’t bother putting any stats into the shapeshifting tree.

Druids naturally have a ton of life thanks to Oak Sage and considerable damage with the combination of Cyclone Armor and Summons. Below is the general build layout you can follow to put together a Wind Druid for PvP.

The general build template is usually the same, no matter how you want to go about it. You can check out Coooley’s guide on YouTube for some general strategy and build tips for the Wind Druid PvP build! Most importantly will be how you handle dueling, and it helps to see it visually.
