Shadow Dance is a Subtlety rogue ability, available at level 80. It is unique as a rogue ability in that it adds the ability to the rogue's Stance Bar, allowing configuration of the ability on a separate action bar.

Tips and tactics

A very effective tactic is to build up 5 combo points and full energy > Shadow Dance > [Kidney Shot] > Ambush repeatedly. This effectively makes Shadow Dance an extremely powerful [Backstab] ability which can also leave the user with 5 more combo points.
