Ability rogue ambush.png

  • Increases the critical strike chance of your Ambush ability by 20/40/60% and its damage by 5/10/15%.
Talent required



Improved Ambush is a 15 point Rogue talent located in the 1st tier of the Subtlety Tree.


  • When maxed out and combined with other + Crit% talents and natural Crit% from high-agility rogues, this all but guarantees a critical strike on the biggest Instant-Damage opener Rogues have. Useful for [Preparation] Rogues, who can vanish twice in a fight, to make for a maximum of three ambushes (Assuming the Rogue is not knocked out of stealth while Vanished and all the Ambushes hit).
  • The effect of [Remorseless Attacks] stacks with this talent's effect.

Patch changes

  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): Removed.
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): Increased from 2 to 3 ranks. Moved from tier 4 to tier 1. Critical strike chance increased to 20/40/60% (up from 25/50%). Now also increases the damage of Ambush by 5/10/15%.
