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.

  • 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.
