Preparation is a Subtlety talent spell which refreshes cooldowns on many Rogue abilities. As such it is used by many builds, mainly dagger rogues, providing for up to three ambushes in quick succession every 8 minutes. Having a will make this ability even more useful.
As it may only be used once every 8 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.
