Shepherd’s Aspect builds in Diablo 4

The Shepherd’s Aspect can be decent with any of the meta-Druid builds as they all utilize Core skills Just make sure that you have one slot free for your companion summon.

However, if you want to maximize your damage output with this aspect, go for the class that has a Core skill as the primary source of damage.

The Pulverize Druid build is one of the good options. Pulverize is a core skill so it will receive a damage buff from this aspect. You may need to modify this building to accommodate a companion.

Any companion of your choice is viable here, but if you want a recommendation, go for the Wolf companion. They provide a decent damage output for a relatively smaller cooldown.

Make sure to cycle through all your core skills when the Wolf companion is active for maximum damage output.
