This build has been designed for the following use:

The Gale Axe is a PvP-oriented Warrior/Elementalist build, focusing on owning noobs and disruption through the Elementalist skill Gale.

Anymore the eviscerate executioner's strike spike don't work that much but it's fairly effective. very strong against any type of anti-melee (when you have empathy on you just use frenzy to get rid of it) and shock is a costly interrupt skill.
