For this tip, you need to remember 2 stats as a Druid: normal HP and Bear Form HP. During combat engagement in Bear form, if your health drops to the point slightly higher than your normal form, then quickly change back to normal form and then back to Bear form.

Take this as an example:
Druid Level 70
Normal HP - 8k
Bear HP - 10.5k

Say during battle you lost 2k in HP and another mob is coming your way, quickly change back to normal form and then back again to bear form. You will have full 10.5k hp again in less than 5 secs to continue battling on. Enjoy!

Yeah, that's not how it works.

Druid shapeshifting always carries over the percentage of health that you had before you shifted and does it in direct percentages.

In other words, to keep the numbers easy, if you have 1000 hp in caster form and 1250 in bear, and you lose 25% of your hp while in combat (leaving you with 938 hp), when you switch back into caster you're going to have 750 hp. Assuming you don't heal yourself before going back to bear, you're still going to have 75% of your hp, and when you shift back, you're going back to 938 hp.

Besides all this, if you're in bear and tanking (which, let's face it, is almost the only reason to be in bear except for certain pvp or weird solo pulling situations), shifting out to heal or attempt the above (even if it worked) would be foolhardy and probably result in the druid's death or very angry healers thanks to the loss of hp and extreme loss of armor, as dire bear multiplies armor from items by a factor of 5-5.5 depending on spec.

This thing worked actually, but now got fixed.
