WoW: The War Within Keeper of the Grove Druid Hero Talents guide

The two archdruids in Season of Discovery (Hero Talents guide)

As World of Warcraft continues its progression towards the release of The War Within later this year, Blizzard is revealing more specifics about one of the major changes under the hood, in Hero Talents.

Existing WoW players will be intimately familiar with the talent system that is already in place for each class. These branching trees offer both passive buffs and active abilities for each of the game’s specializations, or sub-classes.

Hero Talents are designed to complement and build upon those foundations while existing in their own insular space. Each class has three Hero Talent trees in total, with each class spec able to pick between two of those. The exceptions to this rule are Druids, who have four in total, and Demon Hunters, who have two.

Over the next few months, Blizzard is revealing specific trees for each class. Here are all of the confirmed details for the Keeper of the Grove Druid Hero Talents.
