For the Season of the Construct, changes have favored a specific Druid build which will obliterate enemies in general — Constructs in particular.

Making the most of your Druid leveling build in Diablo 4 Season 3

During Season of the Construct, the best Druid leveling build in Diablo 4 continues to be the Landslide Druid leveling build. The usage of the Landslide skill will submit your enemies to the weight of the world, making demonic pulverization a very easy task for starting Druids. It is straight-up the build with the most starting damage of the Druid builds and, in case you love using tank characters, the Landslide Druid features a lot of survivability, making sure that crowd control becomes an easy task.

Whether you want to deal single-target damage to elites or bosses or have great AoE potential for lesser enemies, the Landslide Druid will have your back. Also, in the Season 3 patch notes, certain aspects of the skills and effects you’ll be using have been buffed pretty nicely.

Landslide Druid leveling build: Skill Bar

The Landslide Druid leveling build will help you get through most enemy encounters by following a simple formula. Using your Skill Bar in an optimized way will make things easy for you, and, to be honest, the Landslide Druid is a very easy build to master.

First off, to maximize damage output, you want to use Petrify as your starting attack. This will increase your Critical Strike Damage, feeding into Trample and Earthen Bulwark. Despite you literally rushing and jumping toward your enemies, these attacks will generate Fortify, which helps survivability by reducing incoming damage.

Critical Strike Damage was one of the buffs Druids received in Season 3, as it’s now multiplicative instead of additive. Finally, the pièce de résistance: the Landslide skill. Use it on enemy groups to clear them almost instantly. If necessary, you can also use Storm Strike in between, which generates Resonance, which increases your skill damage output.

  • Cyclone Armor: Passive: Powerful winds surround you, granting 10% Non-Physical Damage Reduction. Active: The Winds rapidly expand, Knocking Back enemies and dealing 30% damage.
  • Earthen Bulwark: Rocks surround you for three seconds, granting a Barrier that absorbs 45% of your Base Life in damage.
  • Landslide: Crush enemies between two pillars of earth, dealing up to 75% damage.
  • Petrify: Encase all Nearby enemies in stone, Stunning them for three seconds. You deal 30% increased Critical Strike Damage to enemies affected by Petrify. Against Bosses, the Critical Strike Damage bonus is increased to 50% and its duration is increased to 6 seconds.
  • Storm Strike: Electricity gathers around your weapon, dealing 20% damage to your target and chaining to up to three surrounding enemies, dealing 20% less damage each time it chains. You gain 15% Damage Reduction for three seconds after dealing damage with Storm Strike.
  • Trample: Shapeshift into a Werebear, become Unstoppable, and charge forward, dealing 75% damage and Knocking Back enemies. Enemies who are Knocked Back into terrain take an additional 45% damage and are Stunned for three seconds.
