Berserker Rage is a tier 2 warrior talent that Enrages the warrior, rendering them immune to Fear, Ability sap [Sap] and Incapacitate effects and removing any such effects currently afflicting them. It lasts 6 seconds, and has a 1 minute cooldown.


Tips and tactics[]

  • Berserker Rage should be used as needed to break fear, sap or incapacitate effects, or to generate extra rage from damage taken when under attack (tanking, PvP, solo).
  • The immunities can help immensely in PvP combat, where any class who can uses fear effects often. Carefully timed fear immunity can really ruin a Warlock's day, and the other immunities help defend against several Rogue abilities as well as Spell holy prayerofhealing [Repentance].
  • While it may be preferable to save Berserker Rage for when it's needed most, with a 6-second duration and a 1-minute cooldown, it is possible to have Berserker Rage up 1/5 of the time. In situations where its immunities are of little use, this makes the most of its rage generation effect.
