Talents to Level Up as Feral Druid

Your first talent point unlocks at Level 10.

You should aim for a talent tree that looks like this:

The exact order you pick the points is not crucial, but the general advice is to prioritize the Feral abilities on the leftmost side of the class tree. In the spec tree, prioritize Primal Wrath Icon Primal Wrath, Omen of Clarity Icon Omen of Clarity, Berserk Icon Berserk, Pouncing Strikes Icon Pouncing Strikes, Predator Icon Predator, and Tear Open Wounds Icon Tear Open Wounds.


Rotation to Level Up as a Feral Druid

  2. Open with Rake Icon Rake from stealth.

Feral Druid War Mode Talents for Leveling

In this section, we will rank the PvP talents best for leveling and doing solo / small group PvE content. Below is a ranking of Feral Druid-specific PvE talents.


Feral Druid PvP Talents for Leveling

  1. Fresh Wound Icon Fresh Wound can provide additional burst to targets when applying your Rake Icon Rake effect, and is a solid increase across the board when cycling between targets.
  2. Leader of the Pack Icon Leader of the Pack grants 10% additional movement speed and causes players to heal for 3% of their maximum health when they critically strike with a 6-second cooldown. Provides free sustain and mobility, making it a good first option.
  3. Ferocious Wound Icon Ferocious Wound provides additional damage to your Ferocious Bite Icon Ferocious Bite that can be useful on high health targets due the maximum health reduction it applies. Value is mostly tied to the difficulty of the enemies you are encountering.
  4. Savage Momentum Icon Savage Momentum causes successful interrupts with Skull Bash Icon Skull Bash to reduce the cooldown of Tiger's Fury Icon Tiger's Fury, Stampeding Roar Icon Stampeding Roar and Survival Instincts Icon Survival Instincts by 10 seconds. This can be useful for moving around the world and extra burst windows on targets, but you will generally be using Predator Icon Predator in the open-world so that overlap makes it less flexible.
  5. Thorns Icon Thorns can provide some use in situations with extra enemies present, to allow you to deal additional damage back when being hit.

Other options are much more focused on enemy control, which is more oriented around PvP gameplay, rather than killing enemies more efficiently, so they are not recommended.



Congratulations on reaching Level 70! Now that you have hit Level 70, we recommend looking at our Easy mode page and Talents section to learn how to play at max level.
