Ability druid prowl.png
  • Prowl
  • Stealthed.
A druid's mimicry of a rogue's stealth is the sincerest form of battery.[1]

Prowl is a level 13 druid's stealth ability. It must be active to enable [Ravage].


Tips and tactics

  • When coupled with abilities such as [Ravage], Prowl is a powerful opener to combat.
  • Night elves can switch from Prowl to [Shadowmeld] without being seen "in between". Since patch 4.0.6 they can also switch from [Shadowmeld] to Prowl directly as [Shadowmeld] can be used in Bear Form and Cat Form without shapeshifting into caster form.
  • It is possible to [Dash] while Prowling, for a total of 105% standard running speed.
  • Prowl makes stealth runs possible, but watch out for stealth-detecting mobs!

  • Bc icon.gif Patch 2.1.0 (2007-05-22): Will now be broken correctly by damage shields such as  [Oil of Immolation].
