  • Despite not granting any bonus to healing, this talent is very common among high level Restoration druids as it is the prerequisite for the Master Shapeshifter talent, which increases healing done in Tree of Life Form. Until level 69 when the Tree of Life talent becomes available, this talent is however of no use to a pure healing build.

Tips and tactics

  • The talent is obviously more useful the more you shapeshift. As druids typically shapeshift significantly more in PvP than in PvE, this is a useful talent for PvP.

Patch changes

  • WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.3.0 (07-Mar-2005): Talent changed. When leaving a shapeshift form, the next shapeshift form you take will have a 20%/40%/60% mana cost reduction if used within 6 seconds.
