  • 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.
