Here are the best tips for playing Diablo 4 as a Druid.
There are only a few different classes to choose from in Diablo 4, and each one has its own way of playing. The Druid can use both magic and melee class features, but it can be hard to learn if you don’t have the right build or aren’t using all the features.
Yes, the build for a Druid may become your main focus, but the build isn’t everything when it comes to playing. If you skip some important tasks or forget to strengthen your character with armor and gems, you might not be able to get past level 50 and into the paragon levels with a strong character.
Conquer Tur Dulra Quickly
Around level 15, you can finally start a priority quest that will help you take over the Tur Dulra base, which is something you shouldn’t put off. The stronghold’s level will keep going up along with yours to try to be one or two levels higher than you when you finally take it on.
So that the Stronghold doesn’t cause you too much trouble, you should go straight to Tur Dulra and defeat the enemy there. Once that’s done, you can keep going with your main goal to bring back the Spirit Lord. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to use the spirit animals.
Now you can spend the Spirit Offerings you’ve worked hard to earn (up to 100 for each animal), which will make your skills go up by a lot. If you want a good Druid build, you have to take advantage of the spirit animal’s gifts and help.
Use Armor That Complements Your Active Abilities
When Legendary armor drops, it will often improve one of your druidic skills or even open up some new ones by giving you a few levels. Instead of just putting it on because it’s legendary and seems better, you should make sure it works with what you have active or that you’re willing to switch to a new ability.
Getting a boost to your skills is much better than trying to get a few more points in your armor. This is true whether you want to make defensive skills like Blood Howl more effective or increase the level of Wrath skills like Hurricane. Remember that you can also get legendary skills from the Occultist in Kyovashad and put them on other pieces of gear. However, if you do this, the legendary skill that was already on that item will be lost.
Choosing Your Weapons With A Critical Eye
Two-handed weapons will seem stronger than a totem and a one-handed weapon taken separately. Fair enough, two-handed tools and axes are much stronger on their own, but that plus and minus number can be misleading.
You shouldn’t wait until a one-handed weapon or a totem has a higher attack than your current two-handed weapons. Instead, you should use your one-handed gear and totem often to see if it is better. Two-handed axes and hammers hit more slowly than one-handed weapons, and if you don’t use totems and one-handed weapons, you might miss out on some faster and more powerful attacks.
Watch Your Spirit
No matter how long you’ve been a Druid, you probably know that your Spirit is a very important thing to keep an eye on. If you start slashing or using moves that drain Spirit without keeping an eye on how fast it’s going, you’ll find out pretty quickly that you’re just standing there and not doing anything.
If you’re with a group, this isn’t the worst thing that could happen because, at the very least, your group members should be on top of their attacks, so you probably won’t die. But if you’re playing by yourself, you’d better hope that you either realize you’re not fighting or that you’re wearing really good armor, because if not, you’re probably going to die.
If you’re playing with other people, either in couch-play mode or online, you should think about getting a build that works well with your group.You might want to be the sorcerer’s tank if you’re playing with one.
Sorcerers are pretty easy to kill, but with a Werebear or a Werewolf, you can play Flappy Bird more of a tank role. Just keep an eye on your health, because you’re not meant to be a tank all the time like the Barbarian is.
Blood Howl, on the other hand, can get you very far with very little work on your part. Area-of-effect (AoE) moves like Hurricane, Cataclysm, and Lacerate are also great ways to deal with the larger groups of enemies you’ll face in multiplayer mode.
Ultimates Are Always The Best
Don’t be afraid to use your ultimate skills, even when you’re not fighting a boss or an Elite enemy. Some of the Druid Ultimates work well or even get better when there are a lot of enemies, like the Grizzly Rage skill for Werebears. You can make Grizzly Rage last longer by killing enemies. If you don’t worry about saving your ultimate, you can get a lot more use out of it.
Also, like every other skill, it can be used again after a while, especially if you use things that shorten the time it takes for your skills to be ready to use again. Elite enemies might only let you use your Ultimate once, but bosses usually take long enough that you can use it at least twice, so don’t be shy!
Aim To Raise Specific Stats
Make sure the things you equip raise the right stats. Equipping items or gems that raise stats you shouldn’t focus on is a waste of potential. As a Druid, you should put most of your attention on your Willpower number. This will increase your Overpower damage and skill damage, making it easier to kill enemies faster.
It’s very exciting to be able to tear through enemy groups, whether you’re with a group or by yourself. You should also try to improve your Dexterity and Intelligence, but not as much. Dexterity will help you avoid getting hit, and Intelligence will make your spells do more damage.
Obviously, if you don’t care too much about magic and would rather have a shifter build, you can put everything into Dexterity and Willpower and not lose much.
