Revenge TCG art

Revenge is a level 28 Protection warrior ability. It is a high-damage melee attack that deals damage to all enemies in front of the warrior. Dodging or parrying an attack will cause the next Revenge to be free.

Tips and tactics

This ability is usually the best way to hold a mob's attention. [Devastate] is available on demand and can be spammed, and [Shield Slam] generates more threat per application, but smart tanking warriors use Revenge at almost every opportunity.
