In the RPG

Icon-RPG.png This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

According to the non-canon RPG,[3] Mark of the Wild is a druidic spell shared by druids, hunters, and elven rangers. By channeling the wild into a willing receptacle a caster can fill an ally with the feral grace and swiftness of the dire beasts of the Emerald Dream. Druids know two related druid-only spells called Greater Mark of the Wild, and Lesser Mark of the Wild.
