Arrrghh! My eyes!

Blind is a core rogue ability learned at level 38. It blinds the target, causing it to wander at 40% of move speed, confused for up to one minute. This is a disorient effect. Any damage will cancel the Blind effect. Blind cancels combat (turns off auto attacks) when used.

Tips Edit

  • Considered a ranged attack, and cannot be dodged or parried.
  • When fighting rogues, spamming your blind ability can give you an opportunity to break out of a stunlock.
  • Blind gives opportunity to use First Aid - use it!
  • Blind can now be dispelled with PvP trinkets so beware of relying fully on it.
  • Blind is a great way to interrupt a spellcast in the case of an emergency when your [Kick] is either on cooldown or you are too far away.
