Swipe is a level 32 Feral and Guardian druid ability.

Tips and tactics

  • Useful for farming multiple mobs that are a few levels lower than the caster and who will die quickly or to deal what can be some sizeable AOE damage to a group of PVP opponents.
  • Use of this ability should be carefully weighed in certain situations, especially in instances or raids, since it uses most of the druids's energy and doesn't generate combo points. This is a very good way to use up an [Omen of Clarity] proc.
  • Combine with [Savage Roar] and [Berserk] and a high crit chance to deal a very large amount of damage when in close quarters combat, especially useful in PvP.
