Notes

  • Any further damage will break the effect of Blind, so Blind does not combine well with DoT attacks like Garrote or Rupture.
  • Considered a ranged attack, and cannot be dodged or parried.

  • Elusiveness reduces the cooldown of your blind by 30/60 seconds.

Tips and tactics

  • When fighting rogues, spamming your blind ability can give you an opportunity to break out of a stunlock.
  • Blind gives opportunity to use First Aid - use it!
  • Blind can now be dispelled with PvP trinket so beware of relying fully on it.
  • Blind is a great way to interrupt a spellcast in the case of an emergency when your Kick is either on cooldown or you are too far away.
  • In PvP, if you find yourself in need of a Blind and have Deadly Poisons stacked on the target, use Envenom to consume the poison so you can safely Blind the foe, bandage, and restealth.

Patch changes

  • WoW Icon 16x16 Hotfix (2009-04-30): "Blind (Rogue) is now in the same diminishing returns category as Fear effects, but no longer shares diminishing returns with Cyclone (Druid). [2]"
  • Bc icon Patch 2.3.0 (13-Nov-2007): Blind is now a physical (no longer a poison) attack. [Reagent] requirement removed. Now shares the same diminish category as Cyclone and is now diminished in PvE as well as PvP.
                Previously blind was a nature attack like poison. Inv misc ammo gunpowder 06 [Blinding Powder] is now a Grey-quality item ("vendor trash") which can sometimes be found in lockboxes obtained through Pickpocketing. There is a tooltip on the item that explains why Blind no longer needs a Reagent: "Once favored by rogues as a blinding agent, it was abandoned for more readily available resources... like dirt."
  • WoW Icon 16x16/Bc icon Patch 2.0.1 (05-Dec-2006): (Undocumented) The cooldown for Blind is not reset by Preparation.
