This is a list of core warrior skills. For additional skills available to warrior's elite specializations, see:

Profession mechanic[edit]

Burst skills are the warrior's profession mechanic, occupying the F1 slot above the skill bar. There is a distinct burst skill for each available main-hand weapon. They grow more powerful the more adrenaline the character has stored up, and activating the burst skill unleashes all stored adrenaline.

These skills are listed in the individual weapon tables below, indicated by Chain Arrow Toolbelt.png
