Wyvern Sting is a level 75 Beast Mastery and Marksmanship hunter talent. It puts an enemy to sleep for 30 seconds. Useful in PvP as a pre-emptive counter to early use of Fear.


  • Very useful for PvP as it will give you a chance to hit your target with an Aimed Shot or other powerful attacks, thus effectively poisoning and cutting down your target's health.
