Cheap Shot is a core rogue ability learned at level 30. It stuns the target for four seconds and awards two combo points but requires the rogue to be [stealthed].

Ability stealth Subtlety abilities

Notes Edit

  • Can be used as an opening attack.
  • Unlike [Gouge], [Blind], and [Sap], damage done does not wake target. That's because this is a true stun and not a "CC" effect.

Tips Edit

  • Cheap Shot is seen as a crucial Stun Lock ability. Using [Vanish] makes it possible to use Cheap Shot twice in one fight.
  • To get full use after vanishing, make sure you Cheap Shot as soon as possible since your opponent will see you if you are still in point blank range; note this is possible even with periodic damage if timed correctly.

Patch changes Edit
