Swipe (Cat) is a druid [Cat Form] ability learned at level 22. It is intended as a way to deal damage to multiple targets.

Modified by


  • Hits all targets considered to be in front of the druid and within melee range.
  • The damage has a chance to crit on more than one target.
  • Useful for farming multiple mobs that are a few levels lower than the caster and who will die quickly or to deal what can be some sizeable AOE damage to a group of PVP opponents.
  • Use of this ability should be carefully weighed in certain situations, especially in instances or raids, since it uses most of the druids's energy.
  • Combine with [Savage Roar] and [Berserk] and a high crit chance to deal a very large amount of damage when in close quarters combat, especially useful in pvp.
