Storm Wolf Druid Build

So what exactly is a Storm Wolf build for Druid?

The Storm Wolf Druid focuses on:

  • Using Storm Strike, Hurricane, and Cataclysm to deal massive amounts of damage.
  • Using Blood Howl and Earthen Bulwark help keep you healthy.

Storm Wolf Druid Unique Items

The following Unique items are necessary to make the Storm Wolf Druid work. Without these, you won’t be able to turn into the killing machine as you hoped.

  • Tempest Roar
  • Greatstaff of the Crone
  • Mad Wolf’s Glee

As a side note, the Druid loot table is currently bugged, causing Barbarian items to drop instead of certain Druid items.

If you find yourself dropping health too fast, you can add into your build Melted Heart of Selig.

How to Play a Storm Wolf Druid

Playing a Storm Wolf Druid is a matter of maintaining Hurricane for as long as possible. Use Claw to get Storm Strike going and generate your Spirit while Hurricane is running. Use Earthen Bulwark to buff your defenses and Blood Howl to heal you. Cataclysm is used to finish off large numbers of mobs, especially if Hurricane is on cooldown.
