"Why should I worry about magic? A well-placed kick will stop even the most potent of spells." —Nathressa Darkstrider[1]

Kick is a level 6 rogue ability that interrupts spellcasting. If Kick interrupts a spell, it also prevents the target from casting any spell from that school for 5 seconds.


Proper use of Kick is helpful in many instances where spellcasters are present. In endgame raid situations, rogue Kicks may be necessary.

Tips and tactics

Properly staggering the cooldowns of Kick, [Kidney Shot], and [Gouge] can keep a caster almost completely crippled for the duration of a battle.

See Interrupt for information and tactics on using interrupts such as Kick.
