Tips Edit

  • Garrote is used more often in raids because of the fact that most mobs in raids are immune to stun effects ([Cheap Shot]), and [Ambush] causes too much threat upon the opening move whereas Garrote's threat is spread across a longer period.
  • The silence component makes it a highly viable opener versus casters who can shake off a stun or immediately react to an ambush with a detrimental effect that can turn the fight around, such as Blink.
  • In PvP, also used extensively against other rogues if caught off guard, since damage resets stealth, making even vanish useless for enough time to finish the enemy.

Patch changes Edit

  • 0600Warlords-Logo-Small Patch 6.0.2 (14-October-2014): Garrote now ticks every 2 seconds (up from every 3 seconds). Damage has been adjusted to compensate.

  • 0200Bc icon Patch 2.1.0 (22-May-2007): Fixed a bug where the Silence effect on Garrote was getting resisted too often.
  • 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 Garrote.
