  • Treants can provide a very substantial amount of DPS in a boss fight, but it is important to time the cast so that the treants are out of danger of being annihilated by AoE. It is also important that you cast them at the back of the boss, so they don't die due to cleaves.
  • Using treants effectively in PvP can be difficult, and should be approached differently for each opposing class. Generally speaking, it is a good idea to use them in a panic situation when your opponent is low on mana, running away from something or someone, or focused on healing/damaging someone else.
  • Against priests of all specs, it is a good idea to cast treants soon after they cast [Psychic Scream] so that they cannot instantly nullify your treants.
