WOW Cataclysm Classic: Both Druid Specializations Offer Excellent Leveling Options - Feral & Balance

Posted: Apr 28, 2024

Like many other classes, Druids have specializations to choose from when leveling up. This time, I'll be discussing 2 most recommended specializations which are the Feral Druid and Balance Druid in the WoW Cataclysm Classic. I will cover topics such as talent trees for the 2 different specializations, new spells and other important information.

WOW Cataclysm Classic: Both Druid Specializations Offer Excellent Leveling Options - Feral & Balance

Feral & Balance Druid Talents

In WoW Cataclysm Classic, you’ll unlock your Cat Form at Level 8, so investing the first 2 talent points into Feral Swiftness allows for quicker travel. With the Dual Talent Specialization, you can switch between Feral Tank Druid for dungeons and Feral DPS Druid for Open World questing. At low levels, prioritize getting Glyph of Maul to hit an additional target with your Mangle ability, allowing for effective tanking.

Feral Druid

Starting with the Feral DPS. At Level 8, you will unlock the Cat Form, and by then, you will slowly get more and more abilities that allow you to kill targets super quickly. You’ll have different bleeds, single-target abilities, and eventually also Swipe, so you can cleave many targets at the same time. At you get yourself the Berserk, a cooldown you can activate to reduce the energy cost of all your abilities by 50%.

The Feral Tanks can also level up quite quickly. When you have Glyph of Maul, you can now hit 2 targets, and then you just use your Mangle in between. But just wait until you activate your Berserk in Bear Form. Now your Mangle ability will hit additional enemies, so you will start cleaving.

Balance Druid

Another option is to level as a Balance Druid, though it may feel slower initially because of single-target damage, but it becomes more viable as you unlock more abilities. Alternatively, you can level as Restoration Druid, which is excellent for dungeon farming but not ideal for Open World questing because of slower killing speed.

However, with the Dual Talent Specialization, which cost 10 WoW Cataclysm Classic Gold, you can level as Restoration in dungeons and switch to Balance for questing. Once you get to a round Level 70 or above, you’ll start doing some decent damage. You can also unlock more spells that making the specialization even more fun.

If you are going to level up a low-level Balance Druid yourself, you can head into dungeons immediately and use the Hurricane to find a spell cleave group. But at a higher level, you’ll start doing insane damage. The crits can go all the way up to 14K, but this Druid doesn’t have insane gear.

New & Update Spells

At Level 85, you can unlock Wild Mushroom and detonate them to deal AOE damage. This is useful if there's a nearby stealer you'd like to reveal from stealth, or even an NPC. I also use them if I have to immediately kill a lower-level target or boost someone in a dungeon. They can do quite decent damage.

Thorns are also being buffed, allowing you to do a lot more damage. However, it will now only last for 20 seconds with a 45-second cooldown. So, when someone is about to nuke you or if you pull many targets, you could also activate this, even on your tank, to generate more threat.

The updated Tranquility is also interested by many players. Instead of just healing 5 party or raid members, it will now also place a heal over time that will stack up to 3 times, making the healing a lot better even if you're not playing a Healer.

The Faerie Fire is going to be updated. Faerie Fire (Feral) will also do a lot more damage and it can stack up to 3 times, reducing armor by 4% all the way up to 12%, lasting for 5 minutes, which also has a chance to crit. The good thing is that when you're low on rage, you could use this as a filler simply to build up more threat.

Consumables

There are also different consumables you should get.

  • Feral Tank Druid: You can get Flask of Steelskin to increase your stamina, and also the Earthen Potion to increase your armor. It has a 1-minute cooldown and you can use it during a fight.
  • Feral DPS Druid: To build up more threat and increase your avoidance, you can be using Flask of the Winds together with Potion of the Tol'vir that will increase your Agility for 25 seconds.
  • Balance Druid: Use Flask of the Draconic Mind to increase your Intellect, and the Volcanic Potion to increase the Intellect by for 25 seconds. But if you're low on mana as a Healer, you could also be using a mana potion.
