Jump to: navigation, search

Primal burst attacks are a warrior profession mechanic that expend all built-up adrenaline. They are introduced with the elite specialization, the Berserker. Each weapon has one primal burst skill. The primal burst skill replaces the Burst skill while Berserk is activated by the F1 key, and is automatically chosen according to the two-handed weapon equipped or, in case of dual-wielding, the weapon equipped in the main hand.
