Cursory examination suggests that berserk lasts a number of seconds equal to the GP invested, up to a maximum of your bonus in fighting.special.tactics. Below are the admittedly few measurements I bothered to take, using MUSHclient's timestamps for the "You suddenly feel eight foot tall [...]" and "Your berserker rage departs you[...]" messages. Durations are in seconds.

Start TS Expire TS Duration GP Expended fi.sp.ta bonus
58:55 00:16 81 79 215
52:09 54:49 160 160 215
52:46 56:24 216 320 215
00:03 04:00 237 321 236
- - ~350 446 352

My fi.sp.ta bonus at the time was 215. Allowing for rounding and measuring error, it looks pretty clear-cut. I'll test again sometime, as the 216 could conceivably have been coincidental. Iago 10:51, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Added more recent data for Iago, as well as Baldarov's (last entry in table, taken from the berserk page ca March 2012). Iago 11:41, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
