I was reading a guide online and one of the pro's for a class said that it has "excellent utility".

What does 'utility' refer to in this case? What kind of traits would a class with 'excellent utility' have?

Overall, what does the term 'Utility' refer to in World of Warcraft?


Utility refers to non-combat abilities, such as a mage being able to create portals and food, a warlock being able to summon raid members, and many classes being able to crowd control and provide raidwide buffs.

  • Actually, buff spells were gone in Legion and only just recently returned. Not all of them though as Mark of the Wild for Druids is still MIA. – Powerlord Aug 20 '18 at 12:21
  • Right, so they're included here. I'm also referring to heroism/bloodlust – SaintWacko Aug 20 '18 at 14:25
