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.

Related Items

  • The 3 piece bonus of the Madcap's Outfit armor set decreases the cooldown of blind by 20 seconds.

Talent improvement

  • 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.
