For other uses, see enrage.

Enrage effects are a type of temporary buff caused by various talents and abilities. Each Enrage has its own effects, and different Enrages do not stack. The exception is the Vengeance buff, which can be active at the same time as any other Enrage effect.

Various mobs and bosses use enrage effects. Of the playable classes, all tanking specializations gain the Vengeance passive, which causes damage taken to produce the Vengeance enrage effect, increasing attack power. Aside from Vengeance, enrage effects are limited to Warriors and Guardian Druids in [Bear Form]. Fury warriors make the most use of Enrage effects, with [Raging Blow] requiring an Enraged state, [Bloodthirst] critting frequently, and the Fury Mastery [Mastery: Unshackled Fury] improving the warrior's total damage while enraged.
