Diablo 4 Season 3 Druid Tier List - Ranking Best Druid Builds in D4 1.3

1/25/2024 11:21:23 AM

As Diablo 4 Season 3 unfolds, the Druid class has undergone significant changes, reshaping the landscape of viable builds. Today, we do a Diablo 4 Season 3 druid build tier list for patch 1.3.From the mighty Lightning Storm Druid at the pinnacle to the experimental Infinite Lacerate Druid in the depths, each build brings its own strengths and challenges.

 

Diablo 4 Season 3 Best Druid Build - D4 1.3 Druid Build Tier List

Druids command nature-based elemental and beast magic. Their abilities allow them to shapeshift into werewolf and werebear forms for melee combat or summon elemental spirits to aid in battle. Unlike in D2 where the Druid could only shapeshift into one form, Diablo IV Druids will be able to switch between werewolf and werebear forms on the fly during combat. Having the best Druid builds in Diablo 4 Season 3 will be important. Without further ado, let's check the D4 Season 3 druid build ranking, find out the best builds for post patch 1.3!


S Tier

  • Lightning Storm Druid

Lightning Storm Druid is going to be either the strongest build or very close to the strongest build in Diablo 4 Season 3. The reason for that is there's the buff to Starless Skies which is a 40% damage increase as well as resource cost reduction. In addition to that, we've got the Unsung Ascetic's Wraps. Since Lightning Storm doesn't use attack speed it's a channeling ability. Typically with Lightning Storm, you probably want to use Earth and Might, which is going to give you guaranteed crits anyway so it's not that big of a loss. But using these items gives you one additional lightning strike every time it grows, so you're getting more lightning strikes. In addition to that, Lightning Storm critical strikes cause lightning to strike twice, dealing 10% to 20% increased damage. The other thing is Cataclysm was buffed and Cataclysm synergizes well with Lightning Storm because they're both lightning damage.

 

  • Tornado Druid

There were no real changes that impacted Tornado other than the Starless Skies but Tornado has always been a good build for Druids so it's going to stay an S-tier build on this D4 1.3 Druid build tier list.

 

A Tier

  • Pulverize Druid

Pulverize Druid was considered S tier last season. The reason we put Pulverize Druid in A tier of this Diablo 4 Season 3 Druid tier list is that they nerfed some of the ways that you can stack the overpower which isn't that big of a deal. It's still one of the best D4 Season 3 druid build, it's very strong but it's NOT competing with Lightning Storm this time around.

 

  • Stormclaw Druid

They buffed Stormclaw in a couple of different ways. We got the Paingorger's Gauntlets which gives us a 200% damage increase to any enemies that were marked with a nonbasic skill. This means any other skill you hit enemies with it will mark them. When you use a basic skill, you do a 200% increased damage with your basic skill. If the base stats are good enough, then this could be a nice increase to Stormclaw. Moreover, we've got an Aspect of Adaptability, when you're under 50% maximum resource will fill your resource. For Stormclaw, you're full all the time. When you use it above 50%, you're going to increase your damage by 60% if you have it on an amulet, which is a huge increase. If multiplicative is the case then that is good for Stormclaw damage, especially considering we have the other 200% multiplier. Outside of that, we did get a slight increase to Bestial Rampage which could make up for our attack speed loss from losing vampiric powers this season. Overall, it'll still clear all the content in the game with these new buffs but it may not be the best D4 1.3 Druid build.

 

  • Trampleslide Druid

Trampleslide Druid has always been a reliable build and A tier is a good spot for it. 

 

  • Rabies Build

Rabies just got a change that makes it so that you reduce the cool down every time, the Rabies spreads to an enemy 0.6 seconds and it's a 12-second base cool down. With the addition of an increase from 80% to 120% for the Wilds glyph, you could do Poison Creeper and Rabies and have a really good poison build. This will be viable and clear all the content but probably not going to compete with the top builds on this D4 1.3 Druid build ranking.

 

B Tier

  • Hurricane Boulder Druid 

The reason this is in B tier is because even though it does good damage and they reduced the spirit cost on it, we can't get over the Suppressor and the wall mobs that just kill the momentum with this build. If you like a lot of damage, it's a good build but again you have to deal with running into those mobs occasionally.

 

  • Poison Creeper Druid 

You can just tie that in with the Rabies but Poison Creeper is a changeling's debt style build. You put the Poison Creeper on and then you do changeling. It's a perfectly fine build.

 

  • Shred Druid

With the changes they did to Poison Shred not being able to double dip anymore, Shred is not going to be in a very good place. We put it in the B tier of this Diablo 4 S3 Druid build tier list because it will still clear reasonably but you're not going to be able to do the very endgame content anymore. Even if you can, it's probably going to be a bit slower or clunkier. 

 

  • Landslide Druid

Landslide Druid can be okay it's just not as good as other stuff.

 

  • Infinite Lacerate Druid

Infinite Lacerate Druid is an experimental build, it doesn't work that well so it's a C tier build. But they did lower the cooldown on it by 10 seconds which is a huge chunk, so it became more viable, especially with the addition of the Airidah's Inexorable Will ring. We still wouldn't put it anywhere higher than C for the Diablo 4 Patch 1.3 Druid tier list.

 

D Tier

  • Bulwark Druid

Bulwark Druids don't work anymore, this is probably worse than D tier. It died after season 1. To give you Unstoppable as a defensive option or to give you Fortify is still a good option and it still works. But as a damage source and as a core purpose of the build, it doesn't work anymore.
