Diablo 4 – Druid Passive Skills Guide (Season 4)

Complete overview of all Druid passives and skill points requirements.




Updated: Posted:

Druid Talents

The Druid has access to 40 different talents (passive skills), or simply passives, in Diablo 4.

Like skills, additional passive choices are unlocked as more skill points are allocated into the skill tree. Unlike skills, however, passives do not need to be equipped to enable their effects; they always function as long as a point has been allocated into them. Up to 3 skill points may be allocated to any individual passive, except for the powerful and mutually exclusive Capstone Skills, in which a single skill point can be allocated.

This section provides a brief overview of the Druid passive skills and their requirements.

For a detailed list of Druid skills, refer to our Druid Skills page.
