Gameplay & Rotations

Stat Priority

Hit rating > Spell Penetration > Resilience > Haste > Spell Power > Crit / Spirit

Opening Rotations

  • Pounce > Entangling Roots
  • Pounce > Wrath > Starfall
  • Pounce > Cyclone
  • Entangling Roots can be used as an opener in certain situations


Your main emergency buttons are Barkskin and Nature’s Grasp, so don’t waste them without the need. Also, while low on health, swapping to human form to heal yourself is a mistake. You can get stunned, not to mention, you disable all of that defense that Moonkin form gives you.

Cyclone can be used to prevent a focused target receive healing by his party member.

If you have to move – apply DoTs and HoTs. But, if you have a moment to free cast – be sure to use it.


Add-ons improve your gameplay by a lot. It is necessary to utilize add-ons, since they play a vital role in your performance, whether you are in a raid, arena or at the auction house.
