  • Tactician (Passive) : Knocker, Whirlwind, and Execution have a 20% chance per target hit to end Colossus Strike cooldown.
  • mastery : Colossal power : Increases the damage of your Colossus Strike by 50%, and causes it to increase damage taken by an additional 50%.

  • Titanic Might (Passive) : Increases the duration of Colossus Strike by 200%, but halves its effectiveness.
  • Bloodthirsty : In a bloody frenzy, you attack the opponent, inflicting moderate physical damage, generating 10 rage and healing for 5% of your health. Bloodthirsty has a 40% increased chance to be a critical hit.
  • Enrage (Passive) : If you critically hit with Bloodthirsty or activate Berserker's Rage, you Enrage, increasing your attack speed by 100% and damage taken by 30% for 6 seconds.
  • Unleashed blow : A powerful blow with two weapons, which inflicts significant physical damage. Can only be used while Enraged.
  • Ransack : Unleash a series of 5 fierce blows over 2 seconds, totaling massive physical damage. Rampage always deals damage as if you were Enraged.
  • Execution : An attempt to finish off an opponent, dealing massive physical damage. Can only be used on enemies that have less than 20% of their health.
  • Mastery: Unleashed Fury : Increases damage done while Enraged by 28% (with bonus Mastery from items).

Additionally, to show you how certain talents can build on these foundations, here is an example of a talent unique to Fury Warriors:

  • Frenzy Furiously slashes the target, dealing moderate Physical damage and increasing your Haste by 5% for 10 seconds. Stackable up to 5 times.

Offensive techniques

  • Devastate : A direct strike that deals moderate physical damage. Devastate has a 30% chance to end the cooldown of Shield Slam.
  • revenge : You strike while in an arc, dealing high damage to all enemies in front of you. Generates 4 rage points. Your successful dodges and parries end Revenge's cooldown (cannot occur more than once every 3 seconds).
  • Deep Wounds (Passive) : Devastate and Revenge cause the target to bleed, inflicting heavy Physical damage over 15 seconds. This effect is negated if the target regains its maximum health.
  • Thunder clap Strike down all enemies within 8 yards, dealing moderate damage and slowing their movement speed by 50% for 10 seconds.
  • Shield slam : Hits the target with your shield, inflicting heavy physical damage. Generates 6 rage points.
  • Heroic Strike : Instantly deals moderate physical damage. This ability does not depend on the global cooldown.

  • Hard to evil : You fight through pain, ignoring 90% of next damage until it exceeds 25% of your maximum health.
  • Spell referral : Raise your shield, reflecting back any spells you fell victim to and reducing magical damage taken by 30%. Lasts 5 seconds or until a spell is cast.
  • mastery : Critical blocking : Increases your chance to block by 10% (with Mastery from items) and your critical block chance by 30% (with bonus to Mastery from items). Also increases your attack power by 20% (with Mastery bonus from items).

Additionally, to show you how certain talents can build on these foundations, here is an example of a Protection Warrior specific talent:
