Frenzy is perma already. Bull's strike is easy anyway with cripple spam. Plus it's on 12s recharge so you can't really spam it more than you can with frenzyrush. - Panic sig5 11:41, 12 December 2008 (EST)
12 recharge? Primal is 4. And ofcourse you can permafrenzy but then you can get kited, perma Primal means you a lot more pressure. --Frosty 11:47, 12 December 2008 (EST)

Ok...heres the thing with primal. Its an elite frenzy, meaning you waste an elite attack for more pressure. That IMS and IAS isnt going to do anything if your snared or blocked. You STILL need a cancel stance, meaning your bar isnt getting compressed by using it. I still favore Dev hammer or Evisc over elite frenzy anyday. 18:13, 14 December 2008 (EST)
Thank you, waited for someone even better to say otherwise. --Ulterion 21:57, 22 December 2008 (EST)
IT's an IMS and an IAS in one stance, and it's permanently maintainable. You have no clue how amazing that is. This is like RaO on crack with a better IMS--GoldenGoldenstarStar 22:02, 22 December 2008 (EST)
Ok...heres the thing with evis. Its an elite dismember, meaning you waste an elite insane pressure skill for more (less) damage. That elite attack skill isnt going to do anything if your snared or blocked. You STILL need a followup damage skill, meaning your bar isnt getting compressed by using it. I still favor primal rage over elite dismember anyday.

Dismember has no damage, thus lacks better pressure than Eviscerate. Eviscerate has both damage and DW compacted together, thus being much more desirable. Saccing Eviscerate for Primal Rage and Dismember for a slight advantage in speed is far less viable in my view. You're in no need for slightly faster bulls strike either, imho. Additionally, if you intend on staying P.R.'d then you have absolutely no intent on staying alive and haven't a care or consideration in the world for your monk(s) and their strain in healing you. Thus, you fail completely if that is your intent with P.R.. Concluding, damage/dw is FTW! Eviscerate > P.Rage. --Ulterion 14:31, 23 December 2008 (EST)
Who else stopped reading after "Dismember has no damage, thus lacks good pressure"? Spaggage talk 14:35, 23 December 2008 (EST)
I can easily DW using Sundering Weapon (from a coordinated teammate) and Body Blow, which makes dismember look like a joke. Dismember has 0 damage bonus at 14-16 axe mastery while body blow provides 36++ damage. Same with Eviscerate. Hell even CLEAVE and body blow with sundering weapon carries more damage and the same deepwound for far less adrenaline! Dismember is just 'bleh' to me. -.- Deep wound alone does not do me justice unless coupled with Battle Rage perhaps, and even then I'd still rather employ the body blow combo vice Dismember. Dismember is shit compared to the above facts stated. --Ulterion 17:32, 23 December 2008 (EST)
5 adren no requirement deep wound, relying on your team mate for deep wound when your a warr is fairly bad. --Frosty 17:57, 23 December 2008 (EST)
Relying on a teammate's not bad. Relying on a 'bad' teammate's what's bad about it. You rollin' with 'bad' teammates, Frosty? Can't be coordinated enough? DW = DW =DW (doesn't matter how much you try & switch it around). Now, you wouldn't want to allow him to run split and away from the Rt carrying Sundering. That'd make no sense as his spikability and effectiveness as a whole will drop. Common sense says "hello! Let's have them both run together." And ofc that Rt must be equipped to perform for whatever specific scenarios they're to face. --Ulterion 10:20, 24 December 2008 (EST)
It's just stupidly clunky though, it gives your warr a lot less freedom of calling, Sundering Wep is nice just for the extra damage (pretty damn good on turrets) but having to use it on every spike means the enemy teams r or me will be able to cut out your deep wound (d-shot, cry/pleak atc it's 1 sec cast so lol). --Frosty 10:36, 24 December 2008 (EST)

You just don't understand, do you Beans? Prove to me how the fuck severe artery/gash can't be accomplished via W/P? Just because you only have 12 spear, doesn't mean it's a detrimental shift in damage and is no longer comparable to the sword. L2P. Otherwise, W/P wouldn't have been vetted! W/P can apply the same shitty artery/gash BS but with a twist:-------> RANGE!<-------- Not to mention the fact that you DON'T TAKE DOUBLE DAMAGE. OMGWTFCAPSAREKEWL! So what if you don't have Bull's Strike with a little more IAS? What good is PRage when you can't upkeep it for long durations? Unless your opposition's completely fucking STUPID, they're gonna maintain pressure on that warrior! He's going to go on lockdown with a quickness if they're smart. If I'm using an RaO, I'm going to lock my pet on him and pressure him with my Ebon Hammer just as soon as he enters his stance! If I'm a Water Ele, he's fucked! I'm going to ensure that he stays steamed/blurred/snared. If I'm a necro, he's going to suffer 50% slowdown from my faintheartedness and defile defenses/parasitic cover. If I'm a warrior within the vicinity it's gonna be "swap to elemental weapon and punish his ass for using P.Rage on my watch. I'll frenzy when he's stationary and make sure to keep my rush charged up so when he takes off I'm at equal speed to catch him when he goes stationary again. He's getting owned in other words.. and guess what? His IAS is his Elite?! OMFGLMAOPWN'D! --Ulterion 18:03, 25 December 2008 (EST)

As far as I know, any double-damage sustained while in that window is.. well.. SUSTAINED! Be that as it may, that's not even the problem or point! The problem is that you're selecting Frenzy and Rush Compacted together with no real difference other than PURELY just that! I'd rather go Frenzy/Rush and compact Dismember and Cleave (i.e. Eviscerate) together! But an Elite Frenzy/Rush two-for-one BS is just horribad! Fuck faster Bull's Strikes! Fuck wasting an elite on a degraded RaO or Onslaught. Glorify it's new functionality in attempts at making it worthwhile all you want! I'll stay Shock Axe tyvm! --Ulterion 18:27, 25 December 2008 (EST)
Seriously Ulterion, you are missing the whole picture. Of course it is Frenzy and Rush in one, but now you can actually frenzy someone when he is running away which is good because if you strike an opponent from behind with a melee weapon as they are moving, you will always score a critical hit which will occur way more than when you were just in frenzy, and since with frenzy you won't be able to apply constant pressure like you can with PR because you will have to use rush to kite better = less damage. Also, it is waaaay more versatile than shitty Eviscerate, since you cannot activate rush outside of battle or maintain it when you are chasing someone with a 25% boost. The utility gained from this skill outweighs the damage advantage of Evis, whether it's splitting, falling on a split, running a flag etc. TrinityX 15:33, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm no expert on anything rly & don't GvG much, but I think even I can w/certainty that this bar is good. Primal's crazy pressure, altho I do somewhat agree it's borderline a waste of elite. I can say tho that in an Primal axe build, Dismember + whatev is far more pressure than Eviscerate. Just my 2 cents. - Ins420sig420 15:10, 13 January 2009 (EST)

So why were people arguing about Primal Rage? Slap a Protective Spirit or Spirit Bond on the warrior and they can apply amazing pressure with an IAS/IMS active at the same time. How is that not good? It's meta for a reason. Shino sig 16:39, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

A good way to like... idk.. learn what the truth (truth?) is... I guess Ulterion could go to obs and count the W/P spear guys, and and then, like, count/watch the W/X P.Rage guys prison rape everyone everywhere, and then come back rubbing his butt. lol.(Kiron 04:03, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

LoL Poooor Poollly =( - No WoW camp on him atleasstt..
