* [[Druid]] - Moonkin Form (Balance Spec) can aggro everything within 35 yards with unglyphed [[Starfall]] which will kill most sub-level 50 mobs instantly. Barkskin prevents spellcasting interruption. Hurricane AoEs everything that reaches the Moonkin. Additionally -- and quite draining on the mana -- a druid can use instant-cast [[Moonfire]] to DoT a mob and keep going. Seconds later, the mob will die without the need for an additional spellcast.

* [[Druid]] - While not a traditional AoE class, the druid posses an AoE in the form of [[Swipe]]. Since [[Patch 3.0.2]], it hits everything in front of the druid and to either side. Depending on the spec, a druid can make an excellent tower. Specifically, a well-geared [[Feral]]-spec druid has the benefit of using [[Improved Leader of the Pack]] to continuously keep healing themselves while towing lower level characters through instances. A decently well-geared level 70 feral druid in bear form can pull large numbers of mobs and maintain nearly '''full health and rage''' simply through [[Swipe|swiping]] continuously. Depending on the druid's gear, this can be done in instances up to [[Zul'Farrak]], [[Maraudon]], or even higher. In these higher level instances, if the druid has enough [[attack power]], they can potentially outpace a Protection-spec Paladin while towing while avoiding the need for mana or normal healing.

* [[Priest]] - With [[Holy Nova]] a priest can heal and AOE even at the same time (though since it causes no threat, this will not keep mobs off the towee).
