Regrowth is a level 3 druid healing spell. Regrowth is a fast spell to cast and heals for a decent amount, but this is balanced by poor mana efficiency. While the spell has a small HoT component it is mainly a direct heal.


  • The initial heal from Regrowth can crit just like other direct healing spells. A critical effect on the initial heal will not have any effect on the amount of healing done by the HoT.
  • The Heal over time effect can crit, based on critical strike.
  • Instant cast while under the effect of [Incarnation: Tree of Life].

Tips and tactics

  • The short casting time and fairly large initial heal makes Regrowth a useful emergency heal.
