This build allows you to harness the power of thunders and Cyclones, which I believe are some of the best crowd-controlling abilities. By manipulating lightning and wind, you will wield the elemental forces as your weapons, striking fear into the hearts of your enemies and emerging victorious.

My Thoughts

Druids were one of my favorite classes to play in Diablo 4. I enjoyed this class’s ability to not only shapeshift into a Werebear and crush tiny skeletons but also use nature’s power to their advantage.

As for the build, you not only have lightning and hurricane abilities to manage crowds, but you also have the Wolf and Bear just in case you need to hit hard. Therefore, I recommend that if you are struggling to select a build direction for your Druid, this build may be able to help you resolve that.
