How do Druid cope with fear type spells?

Sorry if a silly question, I am kinda new.

once you get your pvp trinket, you're golden. before that, cast HoTs on yourself if your health starts to dip so that when you come out of fear you're not dangerously close to death, assuming that you have been DoTed and then feared that is. if you have been feared as a means of escape by your enemy, once you hit lvl 30 that ceases to be an issue since you can up your combat speed by 40% as a cheetah. before that, i guess dash in cat form would be your best bet if they are out of roots range.

PvP trinket? Sorry for sounding dumb.

Just sit it out and wait for fear to finish. PvP trinket does no good since it's once every 5 mins, and can't be used in feral (ie for most of the PvP time).

Tactician, you can get a trinket once you achieve 2nd rank in the PvP Honour System, which allows you to break stun/fear/snare once every 5 minutes, as starky said though, it is only usable in caster form, which drops it's viability if you use forms a lot in PvP

225 blacksmithing gives you a trinket as well doesn't it? I think the blacksmithing trinket is a certain duration of fear immunity though, which is even better.

Blacksmith trinket is 30 sec of fear immunity every 5? or 10? minutes. However, you can't use it to remove an already active fear effect, so...

you become "fearless" with the engineering thingie.. PVP-druids use it all the time. :)

Yes but a priest casts fear at most once every 26 seconds and a Warlock's fear is now on the same diminishing returns timer as Seduce so that helps as well. Overall, if you get feared in caster form, you can use the pvp trinket to break it. If you are fighting a warlock, you have 1.5 seconds to hit your blacksmithing trinket when you see him start to cast. Generally, people want to fear your caster form as that is when it hurts the most, but the drawback to that is when you are in your caster form, you can use the trinkets.
