Axe Specialization increased the chance a Warrior could cause a critical strike while wielding a one- or two-handed axe.

This talent was merged into [Poleaxe Specialization], along with the similar talent [Polearm Specialization].


It was a passive Arms talent, and automatically increased the critical strike chance while holding an axe in the main hand.

One of the more useful Arms weapon specialization options, this was a must-have talent for an Arms/Fury Critical warrior build. Combined with [Berserker Stance], [Cruelty] and various items to gain the most Crit chance possible.

Especially useful to Orcish Warriors, in addition to their racial [Axe Specialization].
