Why should I worry about magic? A well-placed kick will stop even the most potent of spells.

Kick is a core rogue ability learned at level 18. It interrupts spellcasting. If Kick interrupts a spell, it also prevents the target from casting any spells from that spell's school for 5 seconds.

Modified by


  • Proper use of Kick is helpful in many instances where spellcasters are present. In endgame raid situations, rogue Kicks may be necessary.
  • Properly staggering the cooldowns of Kick, [Kidney Shot], and [Gouge] can keep a caster almost completely crippled for the duration of a battle.
