Diablo 4 Druid Leveling Guide

Diablo 4‘s Season 2 is here, and with every new season comes the opportunity to level up a new character.

Want to try out a new class, or maybe completely forgot how to play your own class at a lower level? Don’t worry, Niche Gamer has the strongest leveling builds for every class available.

Below you can find a leveling guide for the Druid class, specifically optimized for Season 2:

Companion Druid:

There is no need to face the horrors encounter in Diablo IV alone when playing as a Druid, as you have access to a wide variety of companions. This specific companion guide focuses on the Wolves and Poison Creeper skills, with Storm Strike as a supplement for your damage.

Vampiric Powers:

Major Powers (6 pacts required)

  • Moonrise (6 Ferocity): Hitting an enemy with a Basic Skill grants you 4% Attack Speed for 10 seconds, stacking up to 5 times. Upon reaching maximum stacks, you enter a Vampiric Bloodrage, gaining 160% Basic Skill damage and 15% Movement Speed for 10 seconds
  • Call Familiar (3 Ferocity, 3 Divinity): Casting a Mastery, Weapon Mastery, Macabre, Wrath, or Imbuement Skill calls a bat ally to attack nearby enemies, dealing 80% Physical damage with a 30% chance to Stun.

Minor powers (1-3 Pacts Required)

  • Coven’s Fangs (2 Divinity): Your Conjuration, Companion, Minion, and Bat Familiar attacks deal 52% increased damage to Crowd Controlled enemies. Lucky Hit: Your Conjuration, Companion, Minion, and Bat Familiar have up to a 30% chance to inflict Vampiric Curse when hitting enemies.
