The talents that are primarily utility-based are simply our general recommendation, your play style and raid needs should be priority when choosing these talents. The talent descriptions include some additional advice on when different utility talents are the most appropriate choice.
- 15Feline SwiftnessDisplacer BeastWild Charge
Feline Swiftness provides a passive movement speed increase that is useful in most situations.
Displacer Beast is useful in fights where burst movement speed helps you avoid ground-targeted raid damage or to quickly reach new mobs that spawn away from your location.
Wild Charge is the most situational talent of the tier. The backwards leap can help you avoid mobs or some raid damage, but the leap is generally less useful than Displacer Beast for quick movement.
- 30Ysera's GiftRenewalCenarion Ward
Yseras Gift provides passive healing that is useful in many fights.
Renewal is useful when a large emergency heal can help you to quickly recover from burst damage. But in general, the talent is less beneficial than Yseras Gift.
Cenarion Ward provides a proactive alternative to Renewal for avoiding burst damage. This talent is most helpful when you can plan ahead for burst damage.
- 45Faerie SwarmMass EntanglementTyphoon
Faerie Swarm is helpful for kiting or controlling a single mob, but is generally not that helpful as a talent choice.
Mass Entanglement is helpful for positioning groups of mobs, especially frequent trash spawns, so that your group's DPS can quickly dispatch them.
Typhoon provides strong crowd control and is generally useful for kiting and controlling mobs.

- 75Incapacitating RoarUrsol's VortexMighty Bash
Incapacitating Roar is helpful for kiting and controlling groups of enemies. It can also be used to help avoid and escape adds that spawn near you.
Ursols Vortex is good for kiting or positioning a group of mobs to help your group's DPS quickly dispatch them.
Mighty Bash can be used to stun or interrupt a single, strong mob. However, this talent is not an especially good choice for Balance specs, as it requires melee range.
- 90Heart of the WildDream of CenariusNature's Vigil
Balance Heart of The Wild is the most useful choice in fights where you may need to serve in an different role for a short period of time.
Balance Dream of Cenarius passively provides healing and is an acceptable choice if you want a talent that will help your group, but not require any additional effort.
Natures Vigil is the most situationally valuable talent of the tier and is usually not advised. The other talents in this tier usually provide better survivability boosts.
