One of the questions I’m most frequently asked both in the comment section of the videos and on the forums is what comp is best for Rated Battlegrounds. Obviously there are some classes and specs that work better on specific maps, but when you queue for RBGs, you aren’t guaranteed to get the ideal map for your composition. That isn’t something you should worry about, though, there are definitely comps that work well on every map. In this article I will explain what classes and specs you should aim to have in your RBG group.
Guardian/Feral Druid: Out of all the tank specializations in game, Guardian Druids are the most powerful for RBGs. They have a lot of mobility, making them great on capture the flag maps. On top of that, they have the ability to stealth, allowing them to slip past the enemies’ defenses and secure a flag pick-up.
Moreover, Druids can spec Feral for node-defending maps. With immunities to polymorph, high DPS, great defensive CDs, and an additional CC break with Symbiosis Divine Shield from Paladins, Feral Druids are excellent at defending bases. Lastly, both Guardian and Feral can benefit from Force of Nature, which allows them to prevent node captures from range.
