Overpower is a warrior ability learned at level 30 for those with the Arms specialization. It is a basic counterattack. Once a warriors' opponent dodges an attack, they have a chance to overpower. Overpower cannot be dodged, parried, or blocked, but can miss. Overpower is instantaneous, so a high damage weapon is all that is needed, not a high DPS weapon.

Overpower is activated via [Taste for Blood].

Notes Edit

  • Overpower is a 10 Rage attack based on weapon damage. It instantly attacks the enemy for weapon damage.
  • Works best with large two-handed weapons. Most efficient warrior ability, damage per rage, so use it as often as you can.
  • Rogues are especially vulnerable to it, as they rely on Dodge for much of their damage mitigation. Overpower can be devastating, so consider using [Berserker Rage] when fighting them to mitigate possible interruptions from Gouge.
