Tree of Life (or often nicknamed Tree Form, Healing Form or Treant Form) is a Druid talent ability found on Tier 4 as the Restoration version of [Incarnation]. It allows the druid to temporarily shapeshift into the tree of life, increasing healing by 15% and armor by 120%, granting immunity to polymorph effects, and enhancing several spells. Lasts 25 seconds.



The Troll, Tauren, Worgen, and Night Elf tree forms

While in tree form the druid can cast spells just as in caster form, and several spells are enhanced. [Regrowth] becomes instant cast, [Wild Growth] affects an additional 2 targets, [Lifebloom] can be cast on multiple targets, [Entangling Roots] becomes instant cast, and [Wrath] has its cast time halved and damage increased by 30%. The instant cast regrowth and improvements to Wild Growth and Lifebloom make it an especially potent raid healing form, but the 15% bonus to all healing makes it a good cooldown for any healing crisis.

With regard to consumables and items, Tree of Life works the same as being in humanoid form. The only exception is that you cannot mount in this form. Racial abilities work as normal in tree form.

This form has animations for dance, cheer, applaud, cry, bow, wave, and sleep emotes, however the Night Elf model cannot dance.

Tips and tactics

  • The 15% healing increase makes Tree a decent cooldown for any occasion.
  • Tree form is especially handy for healing on the move. The ability to spam [Regrowth] while running allows trees to heal while moving for amounts other classes can only dream of.
  • Should you really need to kill something as restoration the bonus armor and cast time reduction on [Entangling Roots] and [Wrath] are handy.
