Adrenaline is a resource unique to the warrior profession. Its primary use is to fuel burst skills, which become more powerful with each full stage of adrenaline. One point of adrenaline is generated by every attack, except burst skills, that deal power damage to enemies.

There are three stages of adrenaline, and each attack made by the warrior in combat grants one "strike" of adrenaline. It takes 10 strikes of adrenaline to fill each of the 3 stages. A total of 30 strikes will yield maximum adrenaline. Adrenaline begins to decay the moment combat ends.

Using a burst attack expends all adrenaline, and the effect and power of a burst skill depends on how many complete stages of adrenaline were built. Using burst skills now causes adrenaline to be spent even if the skill fails to hit. Burst skills can still be activated out of combat provided that the warrior has enough adrenaline to do so.
