How to Get the Shockwave Aspect in Diablo 4

If you’re running a Pulverize earth build on your Druid, the Shockwave Aspect is one of the most important Aspects you can get in Diablo IV. Here’s how to get it. 

The Shockwave Aspect is a critical component of the Pulverize Druid build, as it creates a shockwave that travels forward, dealing a percentage of damage to anything it hits whenever you cast Pulverize. This gives you an additional attack when you cast the skill. If you’re running the right skills in combination, it enables you to absolutely devastate everything on the screen. If you’ve been struggling to find it, here’s how to get the Shockwave Aspect in Diablo IV. 

How to Get the Shockwave Aspect in Diablo 4

Druid’s Shockwave Aspect can be extracted from Legendary 1H Weapons, 2H Weapons, and Gloves that drop from random mobs. World Events, Helltide Chests, and World Bosses have the highest Legendary Drop rates, so do these for the highest chances of getting an item with the Shockwave Aspect.

Players can also obtain the Shockwave Aspect by gambling Mumuring Obols at the Curiosity Vendor. The most efficient item to buy is Gloves, which only cost 40 Obols per roll. Opening the Tortured Gifts of Mysteries Chest (Helmets) during the Helltide event is another good option. And lastly, completing the Tree of Whispers and choosing the Helmets cache can increase your odds further.

The Shockwave Aspect can be imprinted on the following items.

  • 1H Weapons
  • 2H Weapons
  • Gloves 
  • Amulets
  • Rings

The World Tier you are on also dictates Legendary drop rates, so if you are a high enough level, you can clear World Tier 3 or World Tier 4 dungeons for higher chances of obtaining a Legendary item with the Shockwave Aspect. 

Unlike other Aspects you may be running for your Pulverize build, like Ballistic or Ursine Horror, the Shockwave Aspect is the most elusive required to round out your gear but is also one of the most powerful as it enhances your primary damage attack if you’re running Pulverize. While it requires some luck and relies on RNG to actually obtain, you’ll be a lot more powerful once you do.
