  • Moonkin Form
  • Immune to Polymorph effects.
    Armor increased by 125%.

Moonkin Form is granted by [Balance Affinity], a level 30 talent for Feral, Guardian, and Restoration druids. You must be in Moonkin Form to cast most of the other spells taught by Balance Affinity: [Sunfire] (Feral/Guardian), [Starfire], and [Starsurge]. Moonkin Form also allows for the use of [Flap].

This ability is weaker than the [Moonkin Form] available to Balance druids in two ways: it doesn't increase the damage of your spells and it cannot grant Owlkin Frenzy, the proc that makes your next [Starfire] instant.




  • Restoration druids casting any healing spells besides [Regrowth] while in Moonkin Form will change into their non-shapeshifted form.
