Tranquilizing Shot is a hunter ability learned at level 35. It removes one enrage and one magic effect from the target. To obtain this skill before the release of The Burning Crusade, you had to learn this skill from a drop by Lucifron, a boss mob in Molten Core. This is now automatically learned. As an example, this can be used on Magmadar to stop him when he goes on a killing spree (Enrage).
