==Notes==

===Damage calculation formula===
 
The basic Garrote damage formula:
 
Multiplier = 1 + (0.1 * [[Opportunity]] Rank) + (0.2 if [[Shadowstep]] is used) + (.01 + .03 * [[Master of Subtlety]])
 
Total Garrote Damage = (X + Attack power * 0.07) * modifier * 6
 
Damage per Tick = Total Garrote Damage / 6
 
 
''The following assumes that the character is a level 19 Rogue with 278 attack power, 2/2 Opportunity and Garrote Rank 1.''
 
 
'''Example:'''
 
Multiplier = 1 + (.2) = 1.2
 
Modifier = 278 * 0.07 = 19.46
 
Total Garrote Damage = (20 + 19.46) * 1.2 = 284.11
 
Damage Per Tick = 284.11 / 6 = 47.35 Damage every 3 seconds.
 
 
==Related talents==
 
*[[Opportunity]] increases the damage of your Garrote by 10/20%.
 
*[[Shadowstep]] increases the damage of your next Garrote by 20% when activated.
 
*[[Initiative]] gives you a 33/66/100% chance to add an additional combo point to your target when using your Garrote ability.
 
*[[Dirty Deeds]] reduces the energy cost of your Garrote by 10 or 20 energy.
 
*[[Master of Subtlety]] increases damage of the opener and attacks in the next 6 seconds by 4%, 7%, 10%.
 
*[[Blood Splatter]] increases damage of Garrote by 15/30%.
 
*[[Glyph of Garrote]] Reduces the duration of your Garrote ability by 3 sec. and increases the total damage it deals by 20%.
 
 
==Tips==
 
*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.
 
*Starting at rank 7, Garrote inflicts a 3 second silence upon landing. This 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.

Garrote is a core rogue ability learned at level 46. It is a powerful damage over time ability that a rogue can use while stealthed to open a fight, also offering the ability to silence an opponent. It awards one combo point.

Tips

  • 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

  • WoW 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.
