Adrenaline Rush is a level 72 Outlaw rogue ability. It increases your melee attack speed by 20% and your energy regeneration rate by 100% for 15 seconds, effectively enabling the user to use energy-heavy abilities almost without pause.

Tips and tactics

  • In raid situations, try to save up your adrenaline rush if you're close to fighting a boss. Adrenaline Rush and [Blade Flurry] are incredible tools for improving your burst DPS. Remember to let the tank get some threat before using this, as this can easily lead to overaggroing.
  • When soloing, try to use your Adrenaline Rush early on in fights — you have a much better chance to keep your target stunned and make full use of your buffs at the beginning of a fight than at the conclusion. Using AR along with [Blade Flurry] and one's favorite damage moves allows the rogue to survive multiple-opponent fights that would otherwise necessitate vanishing or using sprint to retreat.
