Affects [Victory Rush]

Impending Victory is a level 30 warrior talent. It replaces [Victory Rush].


  • Impending Victory deals 20% more damage but heals 50% less than Victory Rush.
  • Impending Victory costs 10 Rage to use, while Victory Rush costs none.
  • Unlike [Victory Rush], Impending Victory does not require a kill to become available. It can be used at any time. This allows you to use it frequently throughout combat, rather than only after achieving a kill.
  • Any kill that would have activated Victory Rush will refresh Impending Victory's cooldown and double the healing provided.
