Tips and tactics Edit

  • When there is high chance of being attacked while casting this spell, it is wise to have [Barkskin] activated, allowing the full duration of hurricane to complete.
  • This spell can be very useful when tanking for getting aggro on large groups. However, unless there is a healer nearby, it may be wise to interrupt it early to shift into [Bear Form].
  • This spell does NOT break the mass clicking on the flags in the battlegrounds(i.e. Arathi Basin or Alterac Valley), though it can be wise to use this spell on them when combined with other AOE.
  • Druids with the ability [Omen of Clarity] may want to wait for this to proc in order to cast this spell free of mana.
