There are many players trying to create the best talent tree calculators for others in Diablo 4. However, because the game is still in beta, only a few a working at the moment. One of those few is the Lothrik Build Calculator, which you can find on GitHub. In fact, it is the best Talent Tree calculator so far. It is also still a work in progress. However, it is a much better calculator compared to the others. 

Another very well-made talent tree calculator is the D4Builds Skills Tree Calculator. It shows you the number of skill points required to unlock the next skill set of your character. The D4Builds website has some meta builds presets as well, which you can use to customize your character without any hassle. However, it doesn’t include the Paragon Board like the Lothrik Talent Tree Calculator, so it is not the first recommendation. 

Differences Between The 2 Calculators

  • D4Builds has a very basic appearance for its skill tree, while Lothrik Build Calculator is an exact replica of the in-game Skill Tree.
  • D4Builds is limited to only 63 skill points. However, Lothrik Build Calculator does not limit the usage of skill points. 
  • Lothrik Build Calculator lets you access Paragon Board as well as Codex of Power, while D4Builds has neither of them. 
  •  Lothrik Build Calculator has no meta builds presets, while D4Builds has five builds presets at the moment. 

How To Use Talent Tree Calculator

No matter which Talent Tree calculator you use, they all follow a similar pattern. In the case of Diablo 4, they work similarly to the Talent Tree in the game itself. You start with your basic skill set unlocked. Before moving on to the next skill set, you must add two skill points to the basic skill set. You can add these skill points in either one or two different skills, but spending these two skill points is a must to unlock the next aspect. 

As you keep adding skill points, you can keep unlocking the next skill set. You need at least 63 skill points to get to the maximum level of 50 in the game. This will allow you to use the Paragon board as well. This level cap might increase later on, but for now, this is all we can do.

The Lothrik Calculator not only has the talent tree and Paragon Board, but it also has a Codex of power on the side. Here you can add different aspects of your desire to see what suits your character the best.

Some things that you must keep in mind while using these calculators are as follows:

  • The stat numbers in the descriptions will remain the same. Meaning no matter how many skill points you add to them, they will remain the same as base stats. 
  • While using the Lothrik Talent Tree calculator, do not take away the skill points before saving. If you accidentally take away the skill points from basic, it will revert your level back to 1. 
  • While using the D4Builds calculator, you can take away the skill points till the limit. The Core skill set requires at least two points in Basic. So as long as Basic will have two points in it, you will not revert to level 1.

Why You Should Use Talent Tree Calculators

If you are a veteran in Diablo or Action RPG games in general, the Talent Tree in Diablo 4 won’t be a big deal for you. However, if you are a beginner, you should definitely use the Talent Tree calculators. The following are reasons why Talent Tree Calculators are really important:

  • Talent Tree Calculators are an almost exact replica of how the game’s talent tree, so they are very helpful for future planning.
  • Using D4Builds meta builds, you can just implement whatever the site tells you, and that will make things much easier for you.
  • You can use the calculators to experiment and make your own special builds. This will let you see what build suits your playstyle, and then you can use it in the game.
  • Using the Lothrik Talent Tree Calculator, you can add whatever aspects and Paragon Tiles you want to add to your builds using Codex Of Power and the Paragon Board.
  • These calculators help you focus on one certain build without going overboard. You can use them to see which skill favors your specific build and hence saves you skill points.
  • They will also save you in-game gold because refunding skill points requires a lot of it.


That wraps up all you need to know about Diablo 4 Talent tree calculators.
