Overview

Power Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (2) Berserker is a high damage and reliable build for open world that also provides boons. You'll spend most of the time in Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (3)Berserk mode, dealing increased damage and killing enemies by spamming the Primal Burst skills Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (4)Decapitate and Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (5)Arc Divider which will also provide permanent Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (6) Quickness to yourself and nearby allies. Berserker is also very relentless, having 2 stunbreak skills that also help with damage, and a heal skill that makes you nigh-immortal for a few seconds.

The main downside of this build, as with most warrior builds, is the lack of ranged damage.

Weapon Variants

You should always run Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (7) Dual Axe, as this is by far your highest damage weapon set. Greatsword is also great for damage and mobility, but can be replaced by other weapons if you want.

Skill Variants

Heal Skills

Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (13)Blood Reckoning is key to the build, letting you reset your Primal Burst and giving you adrenaline. You should almost never replace it.

  • Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (14)Mending - defensive option, low cooldow, removes conditions, high healing.

Utilities

Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (17)"For Great Justice!" provides you and nearby allies with boons. Very useful, but can be replaced if needed.
Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (18)Signet of Fury is taken for the increased precision passive and should never be activated. Can be replaced if needed or if using Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (19)Sigil of Superior Sigil of Accuracy.

  • Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (20)"Shake It Off!" - condition removal, stunbreak.
  • Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (21)Wild Blow - good damage, Berserk extension, and fury generation.

Usage

Berserk

Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (42)Berserk is the profession mechanic of the berserker. After filling your Adrenaline bar, for example by using Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (43)Head Butt, activate the skill to enter Berserk. In Berserk mode, you deal additional damage thanks to Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (44)Fatal Frenzy and Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (45)Bloody Roar, and have increased critical chance due to Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (46)Smash Brawler. Your maximum Adrenaline is reduced, so it's easier to gain full Adrenaline to use the improved Primal Burst skills Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (47)Decapitate and Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (48)Arc Divider which are your sourcess of Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (49) Quickness.

For these reasons, maintaining Berserk mode is key to playing berserker correctly. Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (50)Blood Reckoning, Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (51)Outrage and Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (52)Head Butt extend the duration of your current Berserk mode. Using a Primal Burst also extends the Berserk duration due to Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (53)Smash Brawler. Thanks to this, you can maintain permanent Berserk mode during fights.

Damage

This build is very simple to play. Start fights by instantly filling your Adrenaline bar with Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (54)Head Butt, activate Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (55)Berserk, and pummel your enemies. Note that having 60% critical chance before Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (56) Fury and before Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (57)Smash Brawler is absolutely mandatory.

Priority
  1. Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (58)Berserk
  2. Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (59)Eviscerate
  3. Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (60)Arc Divider + Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (61)Blood Reckoning + Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (62)Arc Divider
  4. Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (63)Head Butt + Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (64)Outrage
  5. Weapon skills

In short, spam your Primal Bursts. Use Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (65)Blood Reckoning to cast Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (66)Arc Divider twice back to back, then swap back to axe when you can since greatsword lacks sustained damage.

  • Your goal is to stay on Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (67) axe and spam Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (68)Eviscerate while using as little other skills in between as possible. Since Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (69)Axe Mastery gives extra Adrenaline, including to Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (70)Eviscerate, you only need to strike 3 times in between each Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (71)Eviscerate. Be mindful that Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (72)Cyclone Axe strikes twice, as does your second basic attack Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (73)Double Chop. This means that, even if all your other skills are on cooldown, you are never going to cast your third auto attack Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (74)Triple Chop because the first two auto attacks will have already filled your Adrenaline bar to use Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (75)Eviscerate.
  • When all your Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (76) axe skills are on cooldown, prepare your Adrenaline and swap to Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (77) greatsword to cast Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (78)Arc Divider + Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (79)Blood Reckoning + Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (80)Arc Divider, all skills except Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (81)Whirlwind Attack unless needed, use Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (82)Arc Divider a final time, and swap back to axe. When Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (83)Blood Reckoning comes off cooldown, prepare your Adrenaline then go back to greatsword.
  • Use Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (84)Head Butt + Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (85)Outrage when your weapon skills are on cooldown to help maintain Berserk.
  • Use Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (86)"For Great Justice!" before starting fights, and periodically throughout them.

Boon generation

By spamming your Primal Bursts as detailed above, you will provide yourself and nearby allies with permanent Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (87) Quickness and Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (88) Fury due to Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (89)Heat the Soul.

You also provide yourself lots of short duration Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (90) Might thanks to Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (91)Forceful Greatsword, and some more with Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (92)"For Great Justice!".

Defense

  • Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (93)Whirlwind Attack can be used to evade attacks and reposition.
  • Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (94)Blood Reckoning heals you based on damage dealt, continue to deal damage

Crowd Control

  • Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (95)Head Butt
  • Build:Berserker - Power Berserker (96)Wild Blow
