Wyvern Sting is a hunter talent available at level 30. It puts an enemy to sleep for 30 seconds. Useful in PvP as a preemptive counter to early use of Fear. Having a second crowd-control ability (in addition to Freezing Trap) is very helpful in instances.


  • 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.
  • This spell can be used to crowd-control an enemy for 30 seconds.
  • Note that undead mobs are immune to Wyvern Sting.
