Nature's Grasp is a druid ability learned at level 52. It is a buff that gives melee attackers a 100% chance of being afflicted with 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 and 2) the Druid shouldn't aggro away from a tank, 3) the Druid is not likely to survive a single hit, 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. There are, however, a rare few applications, for example when dealing with blood beasts in the Deathbringer Saurfang fight.
  • Can also be cast in Cat, Bear, Tree of Life, and Moonkin forms.
