Fury Druid Build for Diablo 2 Resurrected

Last updated on Sep 30, 2021 at 12:00 by MrLlamaSC 3 comments

The Fury druid is one of the strongest Melee builds in Diablo 2. With extremely fast Attack Speed and a solid Health pool, this character can take on even the hardest of bosses in the game. He is better at single target damage rather than fighting large crowds so make sure to be careful in areas like the Chaos Sanctuary where you can get surrounded and Decrepified.

1.

Introduction

The Fury Druid is the Druid's version of the Paladin's Zeal Zeal skill. With a large boost to Attack Rating and damage, plus the Increased Attack Speed and Life in Wolf form, this is an exciting build to play that can take advantage of a lot of weapons including Ribcracker Ribcracker for some insane damage. Like other classes, finding Cannot Be Frozen will be crucial to advance beyond Normal.

You can check the viability of this build in PvM by consulting our PvM Tier List.

Fury Druid Breakpoints

In Diablo 2, stats that affect action speed (known as frames) for attacking, casting, blocking, and recovering from a hit can almost never be taken literally. For example, gaining 10% Increased Attack Speed from an item will not necessarily translate into 10% faster attacks. To achieve faster actions, certain breakpoints must be reached, which vary for every class. The tables below list how much of a given stat is required to actually improve the action speed of the class for the stated action.
