Tank Rotation & Cooldowns

During combat you are constantly making decisions for what to cast next. Knowing what to do and when is critical for being effecting at tanking. This rotation guide should help give a basic understanding of what to do, what's most important, and how to prioritize Guardian Druid abilities and cooldowns.

Single Target Tank Rotation

  1. Moonfire (Maintain DoT)
  2. Thrash (If <3 stacks)
  3. Mangle
  4. Moonfire (When Galactic Guardian procs)
  5. Thrash
  6. Swipe

To avoid capping with rage, use Maul, Ironfur, or Frenzied Regeneration depending on your current needs.

AoE Tank Rotation

When fighting multiple targets, you can continue the Single Target Rotation but with additional emphasis on Thrash and Swipe. If 4+ targets, you can pretty much just exclusively use Thrash and Swipe!

Important Cooldowns

  • Barkskin Use proactively to reduce incoming damage.
  • Growl Use to establish threat on targets not attacking you.
  • Survival Instincts Use proactively to reduce incoming damage.
