    Default Blinding Powder - Is there a trick here

    I've just started using Blinding Power and I'm not having much joy with it.

    When I first read the description it just smacked of something I'd use and it would be ignored so I didn't invest any points. Then someone recommended that I should have it in my build so I've added a point.
    Nothing much is responding to it however.

    I have a lvl 32 Rogue and I'm chucking it in lvl 29 faces and they're ignoring it for the most part. Also when it does work the affected one mingles in close proximity to my target which means I can't use my Chemical Bomb or any finisher that deals to more than 1 target.

    I don't see any % chance to distract in the description so what's going on, why are they mostly ignoring it? What's the trick to it?

    Its a control tool, don't damage the target and you won't break it, mainly a small scale pvp and ganking tool.

    It would be rare to use it on the target you want to attack, so I suggest putting it into a @mouseover macro so you don't have to switch targets to hit someone with it.

    Serrated Blades.

    If that is active when you Blind your target then you won't even notice the effect. The next tick of SB's damage knocks the Blind right off.

    It causes DR with 90012921932 things so it doesn't last long and people in WFs are prone to mashing their AoE buttons even if it does terrible damage negating your CC entirely.

    I've resorted to using it as a last ditch must interrupt that heal somehow and I'm all out of options trick.
