The pain from the blade is the least of your worries.[1]

Shiv is a core rogue ability learned at level 74. In addition to dealing damage, it is used to instantly apply a more concentrated form of the rogue's current active non-lethal poison and to dispel an Enrage effect.

Notes

Shiv has a variety of uses:

  • Dispelling a boss or player Enrage effect.
  • Though it is not explicitly mentioned in the tooltip, it has been confirmed many times that Shiv cannot be dodged. It may also be unable to be parried or blocked. This makes it useful in PVP situations when your opponent is low on life and uses a temporary avoidance boost (such as Evasion).

Poisons

Base poison/concentrated form

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.
