Diablo 2 Resurrected Best Wind Druid Build Guide - Skills, Stats, Gears & Mercenaries Of Wind Druid in D2R
As a relatively strong and safe build in Diablo 2 Resurrected, Wind Druid is a favorite for players who like AoE farming magic items in the game. He doesn't need a lot of gear, but using a few key items can help him farm faster and protect him from damage. In this guide, we'll give you the advantages and disadvantages of Wind Druid, as well as everything you need to know about building Wind Druid.
Advantages of the Wind Druid
Deals both Cold and Physical damage on a single skill tree, making Immunes less of a problem
Great synergy among primary abilities, so the build is very efficient
Fairly easy to build on a budget
Weaknesses of the Wind Druid
Difficult to Level like Wind; not strong the early skills
The tornado can be difficult to aim
Wind Druid isn't as fast as a Sorceress magic-find build but makes up for it in survivability. With better defensive abilities and some help from summoning minions, Wind Druid is tougher and can take more punishment.
