  • Rip
  • Bleeding for (14% of Attack power) damage every 2 seconds.
  • Duration: 24 sec

Rip is a level 21 Feral druid ability. It is a [Cat Form] finishing move that consumes all combo points to inflict a strong Damage Over Time effect on the target.


  • Deals 20% less damage in PvP combat.

Tips and tactics

  • This is a great "finishing move" for the harder enemies that are only half dead when you get 5 combo points on them.
  • This is considered a bleed effect. Bleed effect damage is not reduced by armor.
