TBC Classic Feral Tank Druid Guide

Introduction

    Unlike during Classic WoW, Feral Druid Tanks really come to life during The Burning Crusade. They can be just as powerful as Protection Warriors, if not more in certain situations. Their high HP and armor makes their damage intake predictable and easy to heal. Their ability to swap to
    Cat Form
    makes them ideal off-tanks for fights that only require one tank.

TBC Feral Tank Druid Aldor or Scryer

    We recommend going Aldor as a Feral Tank Druid in TBC Classic. The Aldor shoulder enchant,
    Greater Inscription of Warding
    , is better than the Scryer
    Greater Inscription of the Knight
    in the long term when you reach the defense cap more easily. Aldor also provides a quest that rewards
    Overseer's Signet
    , your bis ring for Pre-Raid gearing for cat DPS.
