D2R 2.4 Budget Volcano Druid Build Guide | Diablo 2 Resurrected Best Ladder Reset Build

3/2/2022 5:34:17 PM

In this Diablo 2 Resurrected 2.4 ladder build guide, we showcase the budget Volcano Druid build which can actually do some pretty good work early on in some of the new level 85 areas in the ladder season 1!

Diablo II Resurrected 2.4 Best Ladder Start Build - Volcano Druid Guide

As tested, Volcano Druid Build could be one of the best Ladder reset builds to use for running new level 85 areas at the starting of Ladder season, and as you advance, you can level it up with better quality gear. Here we break down the guide into different sections to help you build a strong D2R 2.4 Start Druid build. 

Skill Points and Attributes

In the first section, we dive into the skill and stat point distribution:


Armageddon: 20 points

Fissure: 20 points

Volcano: 20 points

Molten Boulder: 20 points

Oak Sage: All extra points

1 point to all prerequisites such as Firestorm, Arctic Blast, Cyclone Armor


Strength: 156

Dexterity: 136

Vitality: 306

Energy: 58

We basically use three main attacks, so we have Armageddon for when monsters get close we kind of cast this almost like ellie druids do hurricane, then max Volcane and Fissure. We also max Molten Boulder because it gives additional physical damage to our Volcano, which is very important for a diversified series of elements that you can attack with or in this case physical damage. Basically what we do is we walk around, have armageddon active and keep switching back and forth between Volcano and Fissure, both of these are pretty heavy hitting fire spells and you can cast them from a distance which is really effective for Diablo 2 Resurrected runes. So if you have these new areas such as the Icy Cellar that don't have a lot of natural fire immunes in them, this is a incredible build for an area like that. We just put the rest of our points into Oak Sage, that's because in this PTR on battlenet, we only have a phase blade to make a spirit in, so we have to dump a lot of points into dexterity just to wear this, so just know that when the patch drops and you find yourself a four socket crystal sword to do this with.

As an initial build, we used the most budget gear, which is undoubtedly very accessible and overpowered. Within the first few days of a ladder reset actually don't think you need the cast really on this, just aim for something with two druid skills.  And if you want to build up these build with more powerful gears, welcome to buy Diablo 2 Resurrected Ladder items from us.
