Shiv is a Rogue ability learned at level 70. It is used to instantly apply the poison from the Rogue's offhand weapon or to dispel an Enrage effect. Its energy cost depends on the speed of the offhand weapon used.


Shiv has a variety of uses:

Energy cost

The energy cost of the ability depends on the speed of the off-hand weapon:

20 + (10 * weapon speed) = Energy consumption

So, with a 1.8 speed off-hand:

20 + (10 * 1.8) = 38 energy

Patch changes

  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2.0 (04-Aug-2009): Deadly Poison will now apply properly when Shiv is the attack used to break a [Gouge].
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): This ability can no longer generate a critical strike, and the poisons it applies cannot be critical strikes either.
