Overview

A Berserker build for open world Events. This build deals considerable AoE damage and provides excellent group support through and other buffs. This build is gear-versatile and is one of the most powerful open world options. For a more self-oriented variant of this build, see Berserker - Burning Burst.

Build Purpose

This build is focused heavily on both Solo Content and Event farming. It also does very well with Tagging, and so it can be considered an excellent general purpose build for PvE.
