Berserk is a Warrior only command which is used to attempt to enter a state of mind where the warrior will deal damage faster and pay no regard to damage done to them.

The berserking warrior can make more than twice as many attacks as normal (with sufficient skills) and receives a bonus to hit points and stats, but unfortunately cannot use most commands and will not defend against any attacks apart from specials.

After berserking the warrior will be exhausted; unable to berserk again and subject to a stat penalty until they recover.

Syntax

Duration

The duration (in seconds) is the number of guild points spent or the warrior's fighting.special.tactics bonus - whichever is less.

Recovery

Normally after berserking you will be spiritually and physically exhausted:

  • the physical exhaustion causes a stat loss of -1 or -2 to con, str and dex. It lasts 2.5 minutes.
  • the spiritual exhaustion prevents berserking again and lasts 5 minutes.

The Restore ritual will remove the stat penalty, but you'll still have to wait to berserk again. The Soothe and Soothing Rain rituals will take you out of the berserker state with no such penalties, and will let you berserk again immediately.  research If this has been marked on a page, it's because there was something that probably isn't known, that the person who edited the page thinks could be found out. Perhaps you could figure this thing out, and be famous evermore.
