Veteran roguelikes will remember: In Wrath of the Lich King, we were able to remove rage effects from enemies for the first time, thanks to the newly introduced Soothing Poison. It's a shame that there were only a few uses back then, such as in Sartharion, where we could remove Frenzy from elementals. Plus, it was still a bit awkward to use. At best, rogues still had an equivalent backup weapon in their inventory to switch to the Calming Poison peacemaker via weapon switching macro when needed. Later on, the developers removed the Toxin and we were able to purge rage effects via Treacherous Blade.
Speaking of which, as we all know, the Treacherous Bladein particular and poisons in general made a comeback with Shadowlands. The current version of the ability administers a concentrated form of your active non-lethal poison via the secondary hand. In addition, Assassins can increase the natural damage they deal by 20 percent for nine seconds via Treacherous Blade. Meanwhile, rage effects can only be dispelled if you have the Paralyzing Poison smeared on your weapon. Nasty: It doesn't say that anywhere in the tooltips. Rogues figured this out at some point because rage effects are displayed as dispellable.
In the near future, however, the confusion will subside. Recently, the Blizzard developers have made a small but nice change to the public test server of WoW Patch 9.1. There, the new tooltip of Treacherous Blade reads as follows:
"Attack with your off-hand, dealing 396 Physical damage, dispelling all enrage effects and applying a concentrated form of your active Non-Lethal poison for 9 sec."
Say: Rogues will be able to cleanse rage effects on enemies, no matter what non-lethal poison they use, starting with WoW patch 9.1. And the tooltip of Treacherous Blade makes no secret of it anymore.
