Primal Burst attacks are profession mechanic skills exclusive to the Warrior elite specialization, the Berserker. Each weapon has one primal burst skill. Similarly to regular Warrior Burst skills, primal burst skills are fueled by adrenaline, however, they can only be accessed during Berserk. Primal burst skills are assigned automatically according to the two-handed weapon equipped or, in case of dual-wielding, the weapon equipped in the main hand.
