Lightning Storm Druid Build

A Build specializing in massive range and AoE potential. You will call down lightning on large groups of enemies, while having a small army to support you.

Skills

This Build mainly revolves around using Lightning Storm. This Skill can be charged to make a huge storm anywhere on the screen, so it can take out groups of enemies easily.

Additional Core Skills:

  • Wolves, Ravens, Poison Creeper – all help a bit with damage and utility, but their main purpose is to boost the damage of Lightning Storm when combined with the Shepard and Stampede Aspects.
  • Trample – your main source of Mobility and Unstoppable. Also an easy way to turn into a Werebear.
  • Debilitating Roar – a great source of damage reduction, and another way to turn into a Werebear.

Passives

The Key Passive for this Build is Bestial Rampage, as it will give a consistent damage boost.

Additional Passives:

  • Iron Fur, Ancestral Fortitude, Vigilance, Neurotoxin, Circle of Life, and Heightened Senses will increase your survivability.
  • Wild Impulses, Predatory Instinct, Nature’s Reach, Clarity, Toxic Claws, Envenom, Defiance, and Quickshift will boost your damage.
  • Heart of the Wild, Digitigrade Gait, and Neurotoxin will boost your Movement Speed.

Spirit Boons

  • Wariness – to increase your Survivability against Elites.
  • Iron Feather – gives you more Maximum Life.
  • Avian Wrath – will further increase your damage.
