Rotation, Cooldowns, and Abilities

  • Tanking is a very on-the-spot spec. Because of that, it’s very hard to have a set rotation and set way to tank. As a Feral Druid, keeping Demoralizing Roar and Faerie Fire (Feral) (if you do not have a Boomkin with Improved Faerie Fire) on the targets is essential. 
  • As for keeping up the threat – Open with Mangle (Bear) and try to use it on cooldown. Interweave Lacerate and try to keep 5 stacks on the target so that it can get the maximum benefit with Mangle. Use Maul as a single target rage dump (use when over 60 rage). 
  • Use Swipe as a multimob rage dump or to help keep threat on multiple targets.
  • The Furor talent will help by providing you with 10 rage after shapeshifting to be able to grab quick initial threat. Of course, Growl and Challenging Roar are usable as a last resort if the mob changes targets or to transition tank targets.

Hello and thanks for the guide. I always use this website when I need to get better on my chars.

I recently boosted a druid, since my guild needed one for tanking TBC. Other than the rotation above, do you recommend any macros or any other “quality of life” things?
