Shred is a druid ability learned at level 16 for druids who have chosen the Feral specialization. Used in [cat form], it is a special high direct damage attack from behind the target.

  • This attack serves as the basis for any feral druid's group DPS.
  • You do not have to be prowling to use Shred; you just need to be behind your target.
  • You will also want to have a Rake or Rip applied to your target before using Shred as well, as it will significantly improve damage.
  • In Cat Form, especially PvE, this is pretty much the best way to start a fight until [Ravage] (Level 54); [Prowl] up behind the mob, Shred for a huge initial damage. This is always a good move when grouping, because if someone else is holding the aggro, shredding from behind is serious damage while in combat (Ravage requires prowling).
