Unique Items

The following Unique Items are required, recommended, or optional for the Tornado Druid.

Tempest RoarTempest Roar can be target-farmed from Duriel.

Uber Unique Items

The following Uber Unique Items are situational additions to the build

  • Tyrael's MightTyrael’s Might – High Defensive capability usable in high push content, just make sure you have covered your Armor needs with Pants’ Total Armor and Armor Affixes. Damage loss to Mad Wolf's GleeMad Wolf’s Glee.
  • While Ring of Starless SkiesRing of Starless Skies was beneficial in previous seasons, the slot is now taken by Hunter's ZenithHunter’s Zenith. Further, a standard ring gets access to Tempers for Damage to Close or Distant for a higher ThunderstruckThunderstruck multiplier. This makes the ring more of a comfort pick than a strong choice.

Rotation and Playstyle

Advanced Information

It is time to get started on your Tornado journey!

Or see below for further information on how the build works, as well as further explanations for Paragon, Gearing, and Gameplay, and available playstyle options.

Build Mechanics

The Tornado Druid is a simple to play and effective build with high damage that speeds through content. Our primary Skill is TornadoTornado, which benefits from several interactions from Skill Passives, Legendary Powers, Gearing, and supporting Skills.

Tempest RoarTempest Roar makes all Storm Skills into Werewolf Skills, which allows TornadoTornado to benefit from Shapeshifting Passives like QuickshiftQuickshift and EnvenomEnvenom.

Stormchaser's AspectStormchaser’s Aspect allows cast tornadoes to seek out enemies.

Both the Initial Tornado and the extra Tornado from Enhanced TornadoEnhanced Tornado can trigger the Weapon Temper for Chance for Tornado Projectiles to Cast twice. That’s right, there’s a chance for up to 4 Tornadoes per cast!

Debilitating RoarDebilitating Roar is our major Defensive Skill, and constantly reset by TornadoTornado kills triggering Hunter's ZenithHunter’s Zenith. As a Werebear skill, it will also help maintain Shapeshifting skills like QuickshiftQuickshift, Heightened SensesHeightened Senses, and Unique Item Wildheart HungerWildheart Hunger. There may be some downtime when fighting bosses that do not summon adds.

Companion wolves, ravens, and creepers give a significant multiplier to TornadoTornado with Shepherd's AspectShepherd’s Aspect and Aspect of the StampedeAspect of the Stampede. RavensRavens can be used against Elites and Bosses to increase Critical Strike Chance against them, and Poison CreeperPoison Creeper can be used as a tool to Immobilize enemies and apply Poison status to them.

Storm skills, including TornadoTornado, will benefit heavily from multipliers like ThunderstruckThunderstruck. This is why Damage to Close is tempered onto gear.

Key Passives – Perfect StormPerfect Storm gives some Spirit Generation as well as a small Multiplier.


The Paragon Board is a progression system unlocked at Level 50, giving player power through Common stat Nodes, Magic affix Nodes, Rare leveled Glyphs, and Legendary board-exclusive Nodes. For general paragon board information, check the guide here.

The recommended Paragon boards with images for the Tornado Druid are listed above. The following section goes over some explanations and descriptions for the pathing process for the Tornado Druid.

Broadly speaking, decisions for pathing through the Druid paragon board are divided into three categories:

  • Damage – The paragon boards provide a significant amount of Damage Multipliers and Additives. This includes:
  • Defense – The paragon boards help reach goals on Damage Reduction, Armor, and Resistances. This includes:
    • Damage Reduction is improved from WerewolfWerewolf, UndauntedUndaunted, and TerritorialTerritorial secondary effects, as well as individual nodes providing bonuses like Damage Reduction against Vulnerable enemies.
    • Resistances are improved from Magic and Rare Resistance nodes, with Earth and SkyEarth and Sky, and OutmatchOutmatch bonuses improving their nearby Resistance nodes.
    • Armor goals are reached with the help of Armor nodes in Inner BeastInner Beast.
  • Build Functionality – The paragon boards improve Spirit Generation for the build from a few sources, including:
OutmatchOutmatchGrants +25.0% bonus to all Rare nodes within range.
Bonus (25 Dexterity): You deal 16%[x] increased Physical damage to Non-Elites and Bosses.
Ancestral GuidanceAncestral GuidanceAfter spending 75 Spirit, you deal 30%[x] increased damage for 5 seconds.
Fang and ClawFang and ClawGrants +30.0% bonus to all Magic nodes within range.
Bonus (40 Willpower): While in Werewolf or Werebear form, Close enemies take 12%[x] increased damage from you.
ThunderstruckThunderstruckStorm Skills deal increased damage equal to 20%[x] of your Damage vs Close and Damage vs Distant bonuses.
UndauntedUndauntedFor every 5 Dexterity purchased within range, you deal + [9.6%] increased damage to Close targets.
Bonus (25 Dexterity): You gain 15% Damage Reduction against Close Enemies.
Earth and SkyEarth and SkyGrants +30.0% bonus to all Magic nodes within range.
Bonus (40 Willpower): Nature Magic Skills deal x10% increased damage to Crowd Controlled or Vulnerable enemies.
TerritorialTerritorialFor every 5 Intelligence purchased within range, you deal + [7.7%] increased damage while Fortified.
Bonus (25 Intelligence): You gain up to 10% Damage Reduction the more Fortify you have.
Lust for CarnageLust for CarnageCritical Strikes with Werewolf Skills restore 2 Spirit.
WerewolfWerewolfFor every 5 Willpower purchased within range, you deal +1.32% increased damage while in Werewolf form.
Bonus (40 Willpower): You gain 10% Damage Reduction while in Werewolf form.

Spirit Generation

The Tornado Druid does not use a Basic Attack Spirit generator; instead, it relies on several alternative sources for Spirit Generation and Spirit Cost Reduction:

  • Key Passive Perfect StormPerfect Storm.
  • Tempest RoarTempest Roar gives a Lucky Hit chance to Storm Skills like TornadoTornado to grant Spirit.
  • The 2h Weapon Gearing Affix provides significant Spirit Cost Reduction
  • The Ring’s Worldly Stability Tempering Manual provides either generation or cost reduction.
  • Lust for CarnageLust for Carnage legendary Node grants Spirit on Critical Strikes with Werewolf abilities, including TornadoTornado.
  • Paragon nodes for Spirit on Kill in the Ancestral GuidanceAncestral Guidance board.

In the Endgame, these are sufficient sources for Spirit Cost needs. However, if the above are insufficient sources while leveling and gearing, consider using one or more of the following supplementary options:

  • Prioritize placing the Lust for CarnageLust for Carnage board as you level, to always have the effect active.
  • Use the Wolf’s Energize Spirit Boon, replacing The Raven’s Scythe Talons.
  • Use Aspect of the UmbralAspect of the Umbral or Starlight AspectStarlight Aspect, replacing Aspect of the StampedeAspect of the Stampede.
  • Spirit Per Second on Chest or Boots.
  • Attempt to Greater Affix or Mastercraft quality improve the Spirit Cost Reductions or Spirit Generation on gear.
  • Worst case, in very early leveling and gearing, use Wind ShearWind Shear as a Basic Skill builder.

Codex of Power and Gearing Affixes

With the release of Season 4 and Patch 1.4.0, Gearing has changed significantly. For the dedicated page, see the updated Gear Systems and Itemization Overview guide here.

The Codex of Power has changed. Extracting any aspect now upgrades it in the Codex of Power. All Aspects now exist in the Codex of Power. For example, extracting a Aspect of the Changeling's DebtAspect of the Changeling’s Debt of a higher rank than you currently have in your codex improves the Codex. All future applications of Aspect of the Changeling's DebtAspect of the Changeling’s Debt will have that higher value. This also means Gambling Obols can be a significant method of improving your Codex of power. Aspects in the Codex can be favorited.

Check our Legendary Aspect and Codex of Power Guide to see which slots can have which legendary powers. For example, Rings can have either Offensive or Resource powers. This means Stormchaser's AspectStormchaser’s Aspect could be on Gloves or Ring, and there is still room for all the rest of the Legendary Aspects that complete the build.

For Gearing Affixes, Normal Items have no affixes, Magic Items have 1 affix, Rare Items have 2 affixes, Legendary Items have 3 affixes, and Unique Items keep their 4 affixes. Applying Legendary Aspects from your Codex will not improve the amount of Affixes on items. In the Endgame, this means Legendary Items are desirable and the rest are largely going to be just salvaged without much inspection. Many available affixes and their ranges have been changed. This is beneficial for this build on some Slots such as 2 handed weapon, with large Spirit Cost Reduction and Attack Speed, but will be worse on other slots, For example, every single resistance is an option on armor slots so rerolling at the Enchantress for the ideal affix can take many more rolls.

Ancestral Legendary items can drop with Greater Affix, indicated with a special icon * both in Inventory and on the ground. Items can have multiple Greater Affixes. Greater Affixes have a 1.5 multiplier to the base Affix.

Variant Playstyles and Options

Druids generally have options available to flex between depending on game stage, gearing process, playstyle tempo, or accessibility.

Alternative Skills

PetrifyPetrify is used as a significant burst Critical Strike Damage multiplier, great against Elites and Bosses. This can be a flex skill. Other skills can be used instead depending on playstyle desires, including:

Debilitating RoarDebilitating Roar is a large Damage Reduction that also helps maintain several Shapeshifting Buffs for higher damage. However, in farm or trivial content where you are already overkilling enemies or incoming damage is low, feel free to swap for other options such as TrampleTrample.

For some more defensive options, swap out Nature's ReachNature’s Reach or ResonanceResonance for Iron FurIron Fur for Damage Reduction, or Natural FortitudeNatural Fortitude for more Fortify Generation.

Playstyle Variant – Direwolf Tornado

Grizzly RageGrizzly Rage with Dire Wolf's AspectDire Wolf’s Aspect is no longer recommended as the default playstyle after the 1.4.0 gearing change. This is because:

However, this style can still be played as a comfort pick if desired. To play this style:


  • 17 June, 2024: Updated for mid-season patch 1.4.3.
  • May 15, 2024: Small changes in gear affixes to adjust for season launch changes from PTR. Because of the nerf to the Resource Cost Reduction affix on weapon, now recommending Perfect StormPerfect Storm over Ursine StrengthUrsine Strength.
  • 3 May 2024: Guide reworked for the significant 1.4.0 changes to gearing and for season 4 speculative changes. Format changed to frontload basic build information and offer extra information and options afterwards.
  • 11 March 2024: Guide created, fully replacing the previous guide.
    • Ownership transferred.
    • Adjusted Gear, Skills, and Paragon sections to hit defensive stats targets and improve overall damage output.
    • Improved readability, explanations, and options.
