We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Tips and tactics

  • 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 Battle for Gilneas), though it can be wise to use this spell on them when combined with other AOE.
  • [Omen of Clarity] procs are useful to cast this spell free of mana.

Patch changes

Previously: 1 minute cooldown.
  • TBC Patch 2.2.0 (2007-09-25):
    • Now affected by area damage caps. Its bonus damage coefficients have also been increased.
    • A tooltip error in rank 3 has been corrected.
Previously the damage coefficient was 107%.
  • WoW Icon 16x16.png Patch 1.12.0 (2006-08-22): Attack delay raised from 20% to 25%.
  • WoW Icon 16x16.png Patch 1.8.0 (2005-10-10): No longer a talent. Now available to all Druids at level 40. Damage and Mana cost increased on all ranks. Spell is now cast on a targeted area up to 30 yards away and affected by [Nature's Reach]. Multiple Druids casting Hurricane will no longer stack the slowdown effect. Radius of effect decreased slightly.
  • WoW Icon 16x16.png Patch 1.2.0 (2004-12-18): A bug causing the Hurricane talent to not require channeling has been fixed. This spell now correctly requires channeling.
