Fan of Knives is a core rogue ability learned at level 66. The name is a reference to the warden ability of the same name. As the name suggests, it enables rogues to release a spray of knives around them. They deal damage and also have the chance to apply whatever current poison is active. If a target has an existing combo point, the fan will award an additional point if it strikes.
