Diablo 4: Druid Leveling Build [Skills, Stats & Gear]

Maximize your Druid's potential in Diablo 4 with effective leveling builds and strategic gear choices.

While a Druid build in Diablo 4 doesn’t shine in the early game, it can become a useful asset in the late game with a proper Diablo 4 Druid Leveling Build. For a proper build, you would need to know what you should level up as soon as you progress. If you are a beginner, then you should keep in mind that a Druid character can only be leveled up with either companion or Landslide. In this guide, I will explain everything regarding D4 Druid Leveling Build.

Key Takeaways
  • There are two best builds for leveling up Druid in Diablo 4.
  • The first one is leveling up with companions the other one is leveling up with landslide.
  • Both would give massive damage and defensiveness, but the landslide one is more effective.
  • You would need to be careful in leveling up your characters so you could see the damage that you are supposed to.
  • Choose the right gear for your character. Make sure to pick up the rare items while leveling up.
  • If you get Legendary Items with a good aspect of affix, save them for later.
  • Make sure to visit the Alchemist now and then to craft new potions and upgrade your health potions.

What Is Diablo 4 Best Druid Leveling Build?

In my opinion, the best Diablo 4 Druid build depends on your preference. You can either level up with a companion or by Landslide based on your preference. Both builds are great and would do an insane amount of damage, so if you select any, you will surely have a great experience.

1. Companions Druid Leveling Build

Companion Build Showcase

The companion leveling build which I will discuss, will give you enough damage to easily make it through the campaign. So you could move into the world of Tier 3 and get ready for the endgame content. With that said, if you would like some challenge, you can always alter the build accordingly.

Skill Tree Points

  • First, I suggest prioritizing that you level up each minion skill until you reach level 15.
  • Then you should do the Druid quest to unlock the Spirit Bonding.
  • Regarding the core ability of a Legendary Item that you will during the evening process, you should go with the Landslide ability unless you get an item like Stormchaser’s Aspect.
  • If you get such a Legendary Item, you should use Tornado, as your damage will increase much more.
  • Now, you just have a few more options, so you can use them however they seem to fit in your build.
  • The options could increase your single target damage, AoE damage, or defensiveness.

Spirit Boons

For a good D4 druid leveling build unlock Packleader, Scythe Talons, Wariness, and Overload first by offering Druidic Spirit. Then unlock the rest to activate the final Boon with Spirit Bonding.

Stats Priority And Gear Choice

When you are leveling up with companions, you should pick up all the rare drops. While you are at it, save the Legendary Items with great aspects in your stash, as they could come in handy later. Also, I recommend using a higher level 1-handed weapon for more damage.

Rare And Legendary Items

Regarding the stats, there isn’t much to talk about, as you should match the affixes that complement your gear. So the recommended stats to upgrade are the Dps value of the weapons, Critical Strike chance, Cooldown Reduction, All Damage, Companion Damage, and All Damage. Below, I have conjured up a list of all stats affixes you need to prioritize. They are ranked in order of their importance.

Stats Affixes
DPS Value of Weapons and Off-Hands, Companion Damage
Rank to Wolves and Poison Creeper, Cooldown Reduction, Lucky Hit Chance, All Damage, Critical Strike Chance
Attack Speed and Basic Skill Attack Speed, Willpower, Basic Skill Damage, Life
Damage Reduction, Any Elemental Resistances, Armor
Damage Reduction while Fortified, Movement Speed, Crowd Control Duration, Healing Received

Elixirs And Health Potions

This is one of the most important parts of the build. Visit the Alchemist to craft elixirs that increase stats and experience gain for 30 minutes. You can craft any type of elixir as it should match your playstyle. You should not miss the necessary items used for crafting while you are in the open world hunting down the monsters. 

Make sure to return to the Alchemist after leveling up 10 levels to upgrade your health potions. You can upgrade your health potions till you are at level 90.

2. Landslide Druid Leveling Build

Landslide Build Showcase

I think Landslide Build is the Diablo 4 Best Druid leveling build. This build will allow you to do huge damage, and it is one of the Tankiest Build in Diablo 4. I noticed that with this build, you will be able to kill enemies, bosses, and elite enemies quickly. So, basically, as you progress, you can evolve into a monster that no one can stop. I won’t tell you about the damage rotations, as that should be something you come up with to have more fun.

Skill Tree Points

  1. At level 50, you will gain around 58 points to respec skills, so you should not just randomly do it.
  2. First, do Storm Skill and then do the Enhanced Storm Skill.
  3. Then use your skill points in Landslide, Enahcned Landslide, and Primal Landslide.
  4. After that, upgrade your landslide to level 5 and then allocate your skill points among the other Core, Wrath, Ultimate, and Defensive Skills. 

Gear Choice And Stats Priority

You should do the same as told previously. Pick up the rare items while you are leveling up and save the legendary items with useful aspects for the future. Your priority in the case of a weapon should be the one that deals the highest damage. In this case, you can also use two-handed weapons.

Below are the Stats Affixes you need to prioritize on gear when leveling with Landslide. They are ranked in order of their importance. However, I implore you to add something from yourself if you feel like it.

Stats Affixes
Dps Value in Weapons
All Damage, Damage with Earth and Core Skills, Vulnerable Damage, Critical Strike Chance and Damage, Attack Speed and Basic Skill Attack Speed
Damage Reduction, Damage Reduction while Fortified, Any Elemental Resistances, Movement Speed
Cooldown Reduction, Life

Elixirs And Health Potions


Do the same as told in the companion one. But this time, do make sure to craft an elixir that provides any resistance you would need. Or you could increase your attack speed by Assault Elixir. After that, make sure to come to the Alchemist to increase the level of your health potions after you have leveled up 10 of your levels.

That’s almost everything you would want to know about the D4 Druid Leveling Build. However, keep in mind that I haven’t discussed the aspects as they could be hard to farm, but when you get good ones, make sure to use them. While you are at it, read the Diablo 4 Max 100 Level and Paragon Points guide. Also, check All Classes Pros, Cons, and Skills to have a better idea.

Make sure to read the complete guide on Talent Calculator Uses to calibrate class skills for you in Diablo 4. Don’t forget to visit the best gems guide page. Lastly, go through the best farming methods for Crused Meat Bones.
