Diablo 4: Best Druid Build for Abattoir of Zir

Abattoir of Zir is the way Blizzard communicates to Diablo 4 players that even defeating Duriel only classifies as child’s play. Well, maybe so, but at least there are many character builds that will be able to challenge this dungeon and even stand above it and survive. Now, those are big words since the Abattoir of Zir is extremely difficult both in its requirements and in its design itself. Well, nothing like a Werebear Druid can’t handle with their own hands. Or paws. Anyway, moving on!

The best Druid build for the Abattoir of Zir event is the Pulverize Werebear Druid build. Just like the other class builds, this is a common build that has been modified to increase its damage output as well as its defensive capabilities due to the difficulty of the event. Pulverize will be your main source of damage as well as Ravens and Wolves, which can be – and should be – boosted by the Shepherd’s Aspect. Debilitating Roar will also help you survive thanks to its damage reduction. Since I mentioned Duriel before, equip some Uber Uniques such as Tibault’s Will, Insatiable Fury, or Banished Lord’s Talisman.
