Diablo 4 Season 1 Lightning Storm Tempest Roar Druid Build
Welcome to our Diablo 4 Season One Druid Build, where we'll explore the Lightning Storm build. If you've seen our previous build Guides on the Tornado build for the Druid, this one will feel familiar, with just a single ability change. The Lightning Storm build remains incredibly strong, especially for Speed farming. You'll need the unique item Tempest Roar for this build to work, as it enables your base storm skills to become werewolf skills, granting increased scaling and the ability to use all swarm skills in werewolf form. This build offers excellent AOE damage, but also plays differently in single-target situations.

↖ Unique Items
The essential unique item for this build is Tempest Roar. It provides a chance for storm skills to grant Spirit and transforms base storm skills into werewolf skills for improved scaling. Optionally, you can use Mad Wolf's Glee for Speed farming, which grants +3 (or +4 when fully upgraded) ranks to all werewolf skills.
↖ Understanding Lightning Storm
Lightning Storm is a unique skill that functions based on whether you click or hold the ability. Holding it builds up to five lightning strikes, resulting in more AOE damage. In AOE situations, hold the ability to get five strikes and then click it to maintain the maximum five strikes continuously. For single-target combat, build up to two or three strikes and then click to ensure better accuracy against smaller enemies.
↖ Skill Tree
- Windshear (Generator): Causes enemies to become vulnerable with a chance.
- Lightning Storm: Upgrade to preserve the size of the storm. Upgrade 2 has a chance to immobilize enemies.
- Cyclone Armor: Provides non-physical damage reduction and slows enemies.
- Blood Hell: Offers a substantial heal on kill, great for sustain.
- Hurricane: Adds AOE damage, slow, and damage reduction.
- Grizzly Rage (Capstone): Provides a damage boost and makes you unstoppable for 6 seconds.
↖ Passive Skills
Various passive skills are chosen to enhance the Lightning Storm build, focusing on damage, Critical Strike chance, and damage reduction. Notable passive skills include Heart of the Wild, Vigilance, Nature's Reach, Endless Tempest, Envenom, and Defiance.
↖ Spirit Boons
Select advantageous Spirit Boons that reduce the duration of CC effects, increase Critical Strike chance, extend the duration of Grizzly Rage, and offer additional damage and utility benefits.
↖ Paragon Boards
Invest points in different Paragon Boards to boost damage, increase Critical Strike chance, and gain damage reduction while fortified. Notable Paragon nodes include Exploit Glyph, Lust for Carnage, Undaunted Glyph, and Heightened Malice.
Grizzly Rage is the primary aspect for damage scaling and Spirit cost reduction. Other offensive aspects to consider include Earthen Might, Lightning Storm, Overloaded, and In the Zone.
↖ Gems, Gear Stats, and Hearts
Choose gear and gems that increase Critical Strike damage, Critical Strike chance, damage reduction, and Spirit cost reduction.
Hearts should complement the build with effects like Thunderstruck, Rippling Impact, and Before the Storm.
The Lightning Storm build for the Druid in Diablo 4's Season One offers incredible AOE damage potential and is perfect for Speed farming.
