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

  • 0300Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): Now shares a diminishing return with Pounce (druid).
  • 0300Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): This ability no longer has diminishing returns against anything other than itself.
  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.4.0 (2005-05-05): Fixed a bug where combo points were not always being applied to the target when using Cheap Shot.
