Fan of Knives is a rogue ability learned at level 66 for those with the Assassination or Subtlety specialization. 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.
