Searching for the best way to connect with the natural world as a Druid in Diablo II: Resurrected? Look no further.

Have you ever noticed how Druids can fit any niche needed in a team? All that wild shapeshifting must've taught this class how to adapt to any form required for a dungeon, we assume. Druids won't be changing into anything without the proper stats, however, which is why we've written up this handy introductory guide.

Best Stats for the Druid in Diablo II: Resurrected

For those new to Diablo, there are four stats: Vitality, Dexterity, Strength, and Energy. Vitality manages your maximum hit points and stamina. Dexterity controls how fast and how many hits you land, as well as whether enemies can hit you—with a few weapons gatekept by this stat, as well. Strength affects how hard you hit and how heavy your armor can be. Energy is directly responsible for your mana.

We recommend Druids prioritize their stats in the following order:

  • Energy
  • Strength
  • Vitality
  • Dexterity

However, it's worth nothing that since Druid is such a versatile class this advice should only be taken as a spring board. Players can employ several different builds for Druids and these builds can vary from mana-based support to a whirling mass of fangs and claws.

A good bit of communing with nature depends on just how much mana you have to spend reaching out—what a surprise. Therefore, players should look to prioritize their Energy stat first and foremost. This applies to most builds, as well, despite the type of damage players want to inflict.

Strength will make sure that when you hit, you hit hard. Each point in Strength is an extra 1% weapon damage under your belt. You'll also need to make sure you can actually equip and carry items and armor you find throughout the game.

Vitality is well-known as the most prized stat of veteran Diablo players. Several consider it to be the defining factor of a build as it does a better job of keeping you up than armor does. Players can, of course, swap Vitality with Strength on our list if they feel they need to.

Dexterity should really only be focused on if you're looking to equip a specific weapon. Considering that a Druid's kit is primarily made up of ranged spells and natural weapons, however, this stat isn't extremely important.
