You can not use abilities in this form. You are also considered a Beast, so spells that target Beasts can be used on you (Hibernate, for instance).
Your caster form will start regaining Mana 5 seconds after you change to travel form.
Although the Travel Form resembles a cheetah, the Cat Form Feline Grace ability does not apply to it.
Travel Form has three specific advantages over a Mount.
Unlike a Mount, which players cannot use while in combat, a Druid is able to shift into travel form while fighting either a mob or another player if they choose to.
Travel Form is instantly cast, making it even better for those sticky situations. With Travel Form, Druids are able to escape from nearly any fight or simply put distance between themselves and their attackers practically whenever they wish.
As with any form, you may harvest herbs through herbalism, and skin dead beasts through skinning. This makes it an excellent way to achieve the fastest results with a gathering profession.
