Burrow Attack is a pet ability available exclusively to the worm family of hunter pets.


  • The ability cannot be set to auto-cast; it has to be manually activated.
  • The worm cannot perform other actions while channeling Burrow Attack, with the exception of [Kill Command] (which will prematurely end the channeling).

Tips and tactics

  • Using Burrow Attack will cause the pet to drop threat, so be mindful of this while engaged in solo content.
