While the Diablo 2 paladin is the king of the auras, he's not the only source of this type of effect with the druid able to sneak in a handful of his own. Here is the spiritual salvation for Druid skills guide.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Druid Skill Guide - Oak Sage, Wolverine & Barbs For Spiritual Salvation 

First, let's get the basic housekeeping out of the way in Diablo 2 resurrected 2.4, they've smoothed out the resistive spirits giving them 25 resistance to everything, physical magic and elemental while retaining their natural poison immunity, and the other important thing to remember is spirits like vines are exclusive, meaning you can only have one active at a time.

  • Spirit of Barbs 9

  • Heart of Wolverine 28 

  • Oak Sage 9

  • Raven 9 

  • Poison Creeper 28

  • Summon Spirit Wolf 9 

  • Carrion Vine 9 

  • Summon Dire Wolf 9

  • Solar Creeper 9

  • Summon Grizzly 12

So you will only want to invest heavily into the one that you plan to use for your build and skip the rest now to throw things a bit on their head much as these skills do.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Druid Skill - Spirit of the barbs

Starting with the highest level of the pack spirit of the barbs, the level 30 spirit which is essentially a thorns competitor, though, with the changes in Diablo 2 resurrected 2.4, it starts to be differentiated from things like iron maiden which is pure percent and thorns which is hybrid percent and flat damage, this time being straight flat physical damage, no percents, no need to actually be hit, just need to be attacked in melee range. This improves the spirit for use against normal enemies but makes it significantly worse against bosses since it can no longer reflect scaling damage to your minions as it used to that said with how rarely it was used for that. 

Diablo 2 Resurrected Druid Skill - Wolverine

As move up the tree rather than down this is because the move to the level 18 spirit heart of the wolverine, now have our actual damage boosting spirit with plus percent damage and plus percent attack rating and an excellent choice for both summoners and melee druids for like the fury wolf or the mauler bear not to mention super helpful to similarly combat oriented allies.

Now the drawback of relying on a spirit for something like this is that it's going to be in the thick of battle, regularly due to its AI basically aggressively lacking any self-preservation skills and while this is true of all the spirits, this is a pretty common spirit on tanking builds which means fewer opportunities for navigating them out of the way of enemies.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Druid Skill - The oak sage

Now another reason the oak sage actually does well besides the fact that it's useful for both ranged and tanky builds is that spirits are affected by their own auras, so at higher levels, you'll actually find that oak sage becomes the tankiest of the spirits, despite having the lowest base life of the trio that said they all have their uses, especially if you're running in a pack with other druids, since having multiples of the same aura at least these types of auras is kind of pointless, due to only the highest one functioning, though even outside of that the choice between oak sage and heart of the wolverine is a pretty important one depending on your build, since oak sage is only additive with the percents from shape-shifting not multiplied, so do you have a favorite spirit or do you avoid using auras from supremely squishy sources or would you like to see the spirits get a little more utility, so they don't just float around randomly mention it down below and as always keep gaming have fun and peace.
