Aspect of the Wild is a raid-wide nature protection aura, one of the Animal Aspects available to hunters. At level 80 when fighting a level 83 boss, this buff should provide 15% damage reduction from nature spells (on average, but RNG still applies). See Resistance for details by spell damage mitigation.

Notes Edit


  • Fantastic for any encounter with lots of Nature damage. This includes Rogue poisons and nature spells like Chain Lightning.
  • See Nature resistance for a list of PvE encounters where this will be most useful.


  • A hunter can activate only one Aspect at a time.
  • Shares a 1-second cooldown with other hunter aspects.
  • Does not stack with other magical buffs such as Mark of the Wild.
