Shadow Bite is a Felhunter ability. It causes shadow damage to a target. It is the Felhunter's starting ability and does not need to be trained.
For Affliction Warlocks, Shadow Bite gains a second rank at Level 48, allowing it to deal bonus damage for each of the Warlock's baseline DoTs on the target.
