Lycanthropy is a Druid skill in Diablo II.


  • Gives synergy to:
  • Receives synergy from: None


The Druid has the ability to change from his human form into two different forms, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Lycanthropy increases the time he can spend in a different form, and increases his life while in that form. It's a passive skill so no activation is required.

Any Druid who plans on using either Werewolf or Werebear form would be well advised to prioritize this skill, with some even expending the full 20 points on Lycanthropy.


Changing shape is quite a taxing ordeal for a Druid, and he can only assume animal forms for a limited time. This skill enhances his constitution while in animal form, thereby increasing the amount of time he can remain transformed.
