Druid Talents

 

EDIT: Not yet updated for Warlords of Draenor. On my to-do list.

Below, you’ll find a quick review of the new Mists of Pandaria talents for druids! Some talents warrant more discussion for certain specs; I’ll mention them where appropriate in that spec’s guide page. My recommendations are what I would pick for an unknown situation; obviously, you’l want to tailor your talent selection to fit your needs.

One note: Macroing certain talents/abilities together (Nature’s Swiftness+HT, shapeshift+Wild Charge) isn’t working as intended at the moment. You can’t use both together, you have to temporarily delay the second ability, so you’ll need a /castsequence macro.

Level 15:

Feline Swiftness Displacer Beast Wild Charge
Adds a passive 15% speed increase across the board. This pushes your default movement speed to 115% and Cat Form to 144% (25%* 15%), or 155% with the boot enchant (25% * 15% * 8%). Note that Feline Swiftness does NOT stack with the PvP set bonus. (They keep going back and forth on this.) Good for PvE,  Changed in 5.2 to give you a speed boost, instead of putting you into Prowl. Good escape talent for PvP, but not really recommended for PvE.
Adds a charge dependent on form, with a shared 15 sec cooldown. Great for gap closing (feral, guardian) or opening (everyone else). Here’s all the different ones:

  • Unshifted: Leap to a friendly target. (Right now, this INCLUDES Wild Mushrooms.)
  • Cat: Leap behind target + 3s daze.
  • Bear: Charge target + 4s immobilize.
  • Moonkin: Disengage-type effect, hops backwards.
  • Aquatic: Short swim-speed boost.
  • Travel: Hops forward.

Recommended for all specs for PvP; good choice for PvE.

Level 30:

Nature’s Swiftness Renewal Cenarion Ward
All kinds of awesome, especially for Guardians since they can instarez without fear of taking a bad hit out of bear form. All specs can use it for a quick Healing Touch burst heal on themselves or a friendly target. Does not play well with Predatory Swiftness for Feral; if you have both buffs up, the next spell will use both. Recommended for all specializations. Very simple; every 2 minutes, get a 30% selfheal. NS+HT is better, but a bit more complicated to use; this is an easy solution. Guardians, especially, may want it since it burst heals for more than NS+HT. Situationally recommended for Guardian druids or any druid that doesn’t want to mess with Nature’s Swiftness macros. A short duration, powerful HoT that triggers on damage. Doubled in strength in 5.2, which makes it much more useful than it was previously. Situationally recommended for Feral and possibly Restoration druids.

Level 45:

Faerie Swarm Mass Entanglement Typhoon
A ranged snare. Useful for casters, who want to keep people away. Recommended for Balance/Restoration druids; situationally recommended for Guardian druids who need to kite a single target.  Root all the things! If you’re getting low on health, pop this and run away. For group content, can be used to root an add pack before it pulls (or before it gets to your healer, more importantly). Recommended for Guardian/Feral druids. Harder to aim than Mass Entanglement, but more fun. Can be used as a ranged interrupt, sorta. Situationally recommended for all specs in encounters with ranged enemies or in areas with high cliffs.

Level 60:

Soul of the Forest Incarnation Force of Nature
The passive rotation helper. Requires zero thought (except for Restoration), which is a VERY GOOD THING for raiding when you’re trying to worry about other stuff. Recommended for Feral. 30 seconds of being more awesome. Good for any fight that only has 1-2 times [of burst damage/healing needed; combos well with Nature’s Vigil. Recommended for Restoration and Guardian. Trees! (no, not those kind of trees.) The summoned treants do damage and use an additional ability depending on spec. Guardian treants taunt, Feral treants stun, and Restoration treants heal. Recommended for Balance.

Level 75:

Disorienting Roar Ursol’s Vortex Mighty Bash
Not terribly impressed with this; Mass Entanglement or Typhoon offer better AoE options, since the 3 sec disorient length is so short. Can give Guardians a bit of a breather on trash packs, though. Situationally recommended for Guardians. Unfortunately, you cannot suck enemies off a cliff with this. You CAN (sorta) position them for a Typhoon, but that’s just funsies, really. Seriously, the talent is cool in theory but an 8 yard radius on the effect is too short. Even if you place it PERFECTLY, they’ll still be out of it in about three seconds…so, a 50% AoE snare for three seconds. Yeah. Not recommended. There’s nothing Mighty about it (it’s just the old Bash, now usable in all forms) but a 5 sec stun is nothing to sneeze at. Recommended for all specs.

Level 90:

Heart of the Wild Dream of Cenarius Nature’s Vigil
Achievement unlocked: Longest In-Game Tooltip! This monstrosity has two parts, the passive buffs (+6% to stam/agi/int) and the on-use. Overall, the passive buff is roughly comparable to Nature’s Vigil in terms of overall DPS, but the role switch is very situational. Recommended for feral/balance. Like HotW, this talent has two parts; a healing buff when you use a damage ability, and a damage buff when you use a non-instant healing ability. This is generally useless for guardian/resto, and potentially useful for balance/feral. Numbers are still being tweaked, though. Situationally recommended for advanced balance/feral players. Get a damage or healing buff, and have some of your numbers become other numbers! Er, right. Anyway, the 20% bump is nice for burst DPS or healing fights (syncs well with Incarnation and Berserk for Ferals, for example) but I generally prefer HotW. The 25% added damage/healing isn’t significant enough to matter much. Recommended for guardian/resto.

  1. You really make it seem really easy with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.

  3. I have seen that expenses for internet degree experts tend to be a great value. For instance a full 4-year college Degree in Communication in the University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits from $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online offers a Bachelors of Business Administration with a full study course feature of 180 units and a tariff of $30,560. Online studying has made taking your education far less difficult because you could earn the degree through the comfort of your dwelling place and when you finish working. Thanks for all the other tips I have certainly learned from your web-site.

  5. Thanks for your article. What I want to comment on is that when searching for a good on the net electronics shop, look for a website with total information on key elements such as the personal privacy statement, protection details, payment guidelines, and various terms along with policies. Continually take time to see the help as well as FAQ segments to get a superior idea of the way the shop works, what they are capable of doing for you, and just how you can take full advantage of the features.

  6. Thanks for helping me to acquire new tips about pc’s. I also possess the belief that certain of the best ways to keep your notebook computer in primary condition is a hard plastic material case, or even shell, that fits over the top of one’s computer. These kind of protective gear usually are model targeted since they are manufactured to fit perfectly across the natural casing. You can buy them directly from the seller, or via third party sources if they are intended for your laptop, however only a few laptop could have a covering on the market. Just as before, thanks for your points.

  7. I love your writing style genuinely enjoying this site.

  8. Furthermore, i believe that mesothelioma cancer is a rare form of cancers that is normally found in all those previously exposed to asbestos. Cancerous cells form while in the mesothelium, which is a defensive lining that covers the majority of the body’s bodily organs. These cells ordinarily form inside the lining from the lungs, abdominal area, or the sac that really encircles the heart. Thanks for revealing your ideas.

  10. In line with my research, after a foreclosures home is offered at an auction, it is common with the borrower to still have any remaining unpaid debt on the financial loan. There are many loan providers who try and have all charges and liens paid off by the up coming buyer. On the other hand, depending on certain programs, regulations, and state laws and regulations there may be quite a few loans which aren’t easily fixed through the exchange of financial products. Therefore, the responsibility still rests on the client that has got his or her property in foreclosure process. Thank you sharing your ideas on this website.
