This skill not only grants immunity to fear, sap and incapacitate effects, but also breaks the caster out of it.

Talent improvement

  • Improved Berserker Rage: generates 10/20 rage when used.
  • Intensify Rage: reduces cooldown by 11/22/33%. (20.1 sec cooldown at 3/3)

Tips and tactics

  • Berserker Rage is usable in all stances, and should thus be used as needed: to break fear, sap or incapacitate, or to generate extra rage from damage taken when under attack (tanking, PvP, solo).
  • It is worth noting that it does not actually create rage itself (unless using Improved Berserker Rage), so to get the most out of it, you will need to have aggro.
  • The immunities can help immensely in PvP combat, where any class who can uses Fear often. Carefully timed Fear immunity can really ruin a Warlock's day, and the Knockout immunities help defend against several Rogue abilities as well as Repentance.
