[Entangling Roots ] Related buff
Nature's Grasp is a buff that gives melee attackers a 100% chance of being afflicted with . It is learned at level 52.
[Entangling Roots ]
Procs off melee only, does not proc off spells or ranged attacks.
Entangling Roots can be resisted - so even when Nature's Grasp procs, it can fail to have an effect.
Tips and tactics
This spell is very useful against melee attackers in
PvE or against Warriors and Rogues in PvP. Activate this spell when running away. Often the attacker will be
rooted and unable to follow. This spell is also useful for gaining range against a Shaman to use
. [Innervate ] It is entirely impractical for raiding if the druid is not a tank, given that 1) the scariest mobs are immune, 2) the druid shouldn't aggro away from a tank, 3) the druid is not likely to survive a single hit from such a mob, and 4) a rooted mob will turn to attack other people in range, regardless of aggro, potentially killing others in addition to the casting druid.
Can be cast in any form.
