Preparation is a rogue talent available at level 60. It refreshes cooldowns on many rogue abilities.


  • As it may only be used once every five minutes, it is a good idea to burn multiple skills as to gain the most from its effect. Save Preparation for when you don't have other choices.
  • It may be a life-saving ability. If you're about to die and you have your [Vanish] still on cooldown, use Preparation and you will be able to vanish again.
