Druid Guide: Basics

Welcome to the Ten Ton Hammer Druid Guide. Druids are one of World of Warcraft's most adaptable classes in the game. They're capable of being healers, casters, tanks, and ninjas melee DPS.

They can change forms at will between a cat (melee DPS), bear (tank), tree (talent/healing), bird (flight), cheetah (speed), and walrus (swim speed). They have different abilities that can be used in the different forms and can fit into almost any situation depending on their spec and gear.

When you choose a Druid you don't choose a single class, but instead an entire army of classes that are capable of doing almost anything imaginable within WoW.
