For the Hunter pet ability, see Prowl (pet).
A druid's mimicry of a rogue's stealth is the sincerest form of battery.[1]

Prowl is the druid's Stealth ability, learned at level six. It must be active to enable [Pounce]. If not used in [Cat Form], it will activate cat form.

Tips and tactics

  • When coupled with abilities such as [Ravage] and [Pounce], Prowl is a powerful opener to combat.
  • As of patch 4.0.6, night elves can switch from Prowl to [Shadowmeld] without being seen "in between" and back, allowing for a sort of non-combat-like [Vanish] (which can be used in combat, unlike Prowl).
  • It is possible to [Dash] while Prowling, for a total of 105% standard running speed.
  • Prowl makes Stealth runs possible, but watch out for stealth-detecting mobs!
  • This can be useful in some dungeons if your allies fall to a lower area and dies or is killed. You can sneak past the mobs to rez them instead of them needing to run back or wait for the group to fight their way to them.
  • Prowl is often used in PvP games to get to goals undetected by enemy players, such as the enemy flag, an unclaimed territory, etc.
