Usage

Video Example

The rotation aims to get as many casts of and off during mode as possible. Effectively, this means that while on Axe/Axe you cast followed by a combination of skills that gets you back to 10 Adrenaline to recast . These combinations can be any of the following, listed in order of which they should be used:

  1. - note that you should let this fully channel, don't interrupt it once you have full adrenaline!
  2. +
  3. +
  4. +

If you would be forced to autoattack on axe, swap to greatsword instead and use:

When you're not in mode, you can follow the same general principles, replacing your Burst skill casts with auto-attack chains in the respective weapons.


General Tips

  • Unless you know you'll need it for CC soon, use on cooldown while in mode.
  • will come off cooldown in between casts - you can use it immediately as it doesn't interrupt other channels.
    • You can also save to break stuns inflicted during the encounter if you think you may need to.
  • Generally you shouldn't be auto-attacking while mode is active.
  • Never interrupt your Axe auto-attack chains when you're not in Berserk Mode

good damage, but the lack of cc doesn't give it much carry potential, two skills both with 20 second cds between, the build works well if you can rely on your group

Awesome build! I came back to the game from a long break I was using Phalanx Strength warrior build and luckily I found this one and I didn't have to switch gear or anything just sigils. This build is way more OP then the one I was using before, tho warrior is still kinda squishy but thats propably just how it is ^^ I love this build.

I legit stopped playing my warrior because of the recent changes to Berserker. I thought the spec was ruined, but this came along. Always glad to see an axe/axe warr build. Super fun to play. 5/5

Nice burst damage. For fractals, dungeons, and Power damage on raids i t works. You can use shield for more CC and protect, or another good option for healing is the berserker one. I almost prefer full zojja + fury signet, anyway that's just a personal opinion :p
