Because you'll have a little more Energy (you don't need to reapply Primal Rage as often as you would Frenzy), you could probably manage using other Energy cancel Stances: Enraging Charge, Natural Stride@6 (if you want to block and have IMS at the same time), Harrier's Haste and Hex Breaker (might be too complicated to use if you usually want to be in Primal Rage, though). ــмıкεнaшк 09:07, 14 December 2008 (EST)

Unless you were dropped on your head you can manage Frenzy and any other cancel stance (Sprint, etc). --GoD Hammer and Sickle.jpg Guild of Deals 09:09, 14 December 2008 (EST)
I meant better. XP Frenzy uses up almost two pips of energy when you reapplied it as it ended; Primal Rage only uses up about 1 pip of energy when you reapply it every ~13 seconds. ــмıкεнaшк 09:14, 14 December 2008 (EST)
Zealous Axe Mod says 'HI!' The main thing of Primal is frenzy & rush compacted. I'd personally just stick to Eviscerate and shock as it has more damage/spike power than this Primal Rage build. The only real benefit I see here is the ability to bull's strike a bit better. The whole e-management idea of Primal vs. Frenzy is bolognia because just how long do you actually intend on staying Primal'd? The whol duration? GTFO, you're gonna spam it as much as you would frenzy and that's pretty much guaranteed. Frenzy, Rush, Frenzy, Rush = Primal, Rush, Primal, Rush. --Ulterion 16:33, 14 December 2008 (EST)
Except more than half of the time you cancel Frenzy with Rush is to catch your target. You've already got your IMS; with Primal Rage, you only need to cancel when you're about to asplode, so you can stay in it longer. ــмıкεнaшк 16:41, 14 December 2008 (EST)
Even then, Frenzy-Rush-Frenzy-Rush means you just lose a lot of hits because of kiting opponents. With Primal-Rush-Primal-Rush you have a speed boost at all times meaning more - if not a lot more - pressure. Sure you miss your elite attack skill, but imo this is better in most cases if you can manage the double damage. Shai Meliamne 19:15, 17 December 2008 (EST)
The point of Primal Rage is to FUCKING KILL THINGS. Eviscerate has more spike power, but definitly not more damage (in the hands of any warrior). If your playstyle is 321 full damage spikes, then use Eviscerate, but I'd rather use this and call 321 every 7 seconds or so (if you really feel the need to call spikes and can't kill without them). —SkaKidSkakidasaur.gif 19:21, 17 December 2008 (EST)

Tried this build and I'm liking it very much, albeit running a slightly different variation. Keeping Agonizing Chop in the open slot, replace BBlow with Executioner's and running 16 Axe, and then swap Disrupting Chop for <omg>Leviathan's Sweep</omg>. Fantastic for pressuring those TA monks -- get KDd when they run or block, and are pretty much forced to take your DPS and AgChop interrupts. --Noobslayer

tbh, that is an extremely terrible variation --Ojamo (>.<(O=(- -Q) 12:13, 11 January 2009 (EST)

TBH, It's better than the standard build. Executioners is better than BBlow at 16 Axe, Agonizing Chop is already in the variant list and is solid damage + interrupt, and Leviathan's is actually really good. You get on the monk. Monk stances. Monk get's instantly knocked down. Repeat x10.

Just get someone to mark of fucked them, and besides, you KD them down then what, start swinging n missing, wopty do, if your gonna Knockdown you wanna unload a shit load of damage while they're "100% snared" for 3 seconds. Frostrage.jpgFrosty po! 18:52, 11 January 2009 (EST)

survivor's insigs is old school now. new meta for wars is sentinal's. essentially turns you from an 80 AL target to a 100 AL target because nobody is gonna use physical dmg against wars. +20 AL reduces more dmg on spikes than you would gain by running survivor's instead, and taking less dmg is better than having higher health anyway because monks can save you with less energy. if you still think survivor's > sentinal's ur bad because polly runs sentinal's and rawr has more gold capes than you. 17:21, 14 January 2009 (EST)

armor ignoring damage: high hp is better. just for the record. --Tai Sig.png 18:57, 14 January 2009
umm not a lot of dmg is armor ignoring besides holy tai..dont just claim something like "more hp is better" without backing it up..Gringo
VAMPIRIC IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN SUNDERING! Lets get back into one of these retarded kinds of arguments again which totally ignore the situation in which the modifications are being used. I'm not convinced anyone who is advocating one or the other exclusively has any understanding of what the difference is besides parroting what they have been told. - Misery Is Friendly Misery Dog obaby.gif 19:00, 14 January 2009 (EST)
enough of a spike is affected by armor for +20 armor to be better than +35 health. it's not like having 600 health on your warrior is low. also, misery, i have done the math myself and confirmed that, even with an assumption that an exceptionally generous portion of damage received is armor ignoring, 600 health with 100 armor is better than 635 health with 80 armor. it was however somewhat boring/tedious so i don't feel like doing it all again here for the benefit of others who could just as well do it for themselves. 19:08, 14 January 2009 (EST)
Then expect to get whoru'd by dumb people who won't do the maths for themselves. I mean you made a strange comment above that could be interpreted to mean that you didn't know that warriors have an inherent +20 armor against physical damage so that in fact a Sentinel's insignia gives 100 armor vs. all, people may have noticed that and assumed you are dumb, or they could just be idiots who defend a position without understanding why they defend it. - Misery Is Friendly Misery Dog obaby.gif 19:16, 14 January 2009 (EST)
if you're still having doubts (this part is not directed at you misery), realize that +health is very similar to +energy. you can take more damage initially before you die, but your monks still have to heal/prevent the same amount of damage, which is unnecessarily taxing on their energy. with +armor, you are reducing a significant portion of damage for zero energy. this means that +armor has two distinct advantages over +health: 1) it allows you to withstand more spike damage without dying - where a 700 dmg spike might kill an 80 AL target it might take an 800 dmg spike to kill a 100 AL target - and 2) it takes some of the damage mitigation responsibility off your monks, allowing them to save spikes with less energy.

@ misery, maybe i was somewhat ambiguous. to anybody who doesnt know, yes i realize wars already have 100 AL vs physical. but nobody spikes wars with physical dmg. wars will use elemental weapons and support damage from the spike will be mostly elemental (i.e. lightning from rits, w/e element an elementalist might be putting in on a spike, etc). having +20 vs elemental as well means you have 100 armor against everything but non-physical, non-elemental dmg, which is rare. this essentially means that sentinals turn a war from an 80 AL target to a 100 AL target. 19:22, 14 January 2009 (EST)

Now you are approaching coherence, allow me to add some information that may bring the insignia decision into a more positive light. The bonus health from survivor's insignias is not affected by death penalty. Members of [rawr] running rawrspike die very seldom, so this is not something they have to consider, but if you are a brave Primal Rage overextender, or just a terrible player who looks up builds on PvX it is highly likely that you will die, a lot, and survivors insignias have a larger effect the higher your death penalty. With a competent midline/backline and a defensive build armor insignias probably are a much better choice, but context needs to be considered carefully when making equipment recommendations and it probably is a personal decision. When I've listened to Polly give advice in the past he seems to assume everyone has Awowa watching their back and plays against top 200 teams almost exclusively. - Misery Is Friendly Misery Dog obaby.gif 19:37, 14 January 2009 (EST)
i agree that survivors becomes more appealing as you accumulate death penalty, but if you're dying so much that you pass the point at which +armor is more effective than +health you've probably lost the game anyway. i'd prefer to spec in a way that lowers the chance that i'll gain death penalty in the first place and increases my chances of winning games i haven't already lost. 19:47, 14 January 2009 (EST)
another point: even if your monk is terribad, spikes on wars with sentinal's are significantly easier to save than spikes on wars with survivors. in high-level play this might mean the difference between saving a spike with 15 energy and saving a spike with 20 energy. in low-level play this might mean the difference between catching the spike and missing it. if anything i'd argue that it's even more important for lesser skilled players to run sentinal's (assuming we've accepted that sentinal's makes a target less spikable than survivor's and that you'd rather spec to prevent dp than to have a bit more health when you get it.) 19:54, 14 January 2009 (EST)

hi, I'm Readem. I am here to help explain rawr's armor philosophy. to begin, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Why run survivor insigs? What benefits do I gain?
    • My argument: Cool, I get +30 health. This will no doubt save me from the 800 damage caster-spike that targets me when primal'd. shit, im wrong. well, at least it will benefit me during VoD. shit, im wrong again.
  • Why run sent insigs? What benefits are the benefits?
    • If some of cookies damage is negated, diverted, or obstructed, I can live due to my consistant +20 ar. Subsequently, indirect scatter damage will be lowered as well, and thus my dual party-heals will be able to top me off at ease. If I get over 30 dp, we are probably going to lose anyways. No amount of health is going to change the fact I explode to nearly everything, and that death pact is no longer an option.

Now, I myself run Sent insigs. To me, a constant +20 is better than +30 health. However, unlike many of the members in rawr, I do believe in caster sets. Feel free to ask me any questions that you may have, as I associate with jatt, asp, and polly on a fairly regular basis. --Readem 22:52, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Shock vs Iron Palm

Which is better? I personally think IP is better because it doesn't cause exhaustion (and the condition is easy to meet). Though shock is spammable, it isn't wise to rack up too much exhaustion. Hence, it's used probably at the same frequency as that of the 20 seconds of IP (correct me if I'm mistaken). --BlazingBurdy 14:11, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Shock allows you to get kills of opportunity. Iron Palm's conditionality makes it a lot less useful, especially since you'll want to kd them before spiking. ~ Tycncookiesig.jpg Tycn 14:13, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

why is this archived? it's still a good bar and i still see it used in obs pretty often. just because it isn't mega OP and used by absolutely everyone anymore doesn't mean it needs to be archived ffs. 20:49, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Ya'lls Nostalgia ain't bringing back the viability in P.Rage. It's good for spiking in 8v8, but not that great in 4v4. WE Blows PRage out the flippin' water, there.. Prage is good for a lil more crits, fast bulls and rupts while supported by SBond from prot monks. Coordination is key though, and healers are an obvious staple for PRagers. Otherwise, meh.. WE >>> PRage. --BlazingBurdy 03:16, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
prage still works in 4v4 lol..it requires more skill then before the nerf. prage lets u gain adrenaline faster, ims outside battles, chase kiting foes, ias + ims is ideal for spiking and a prage bar lets u use another utility (mainly shock) Terran 16:23, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Just got back to playing guild wars after a year or two.

Someone want to fill me in on why this is a great build? I honestly can't understand why anyone would run this over shock axe... the elite is basically frenzy but with a large recharge. The spike is much weaker as well..I heal if you shut it 19:18, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
not widely used, but its nice for training people down. being able to have ims and ias is one of the reasons thumpers were popular too.--|Hipowi sig.jpg Hipowi pew pew pew 19:40, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Mainly, it was really great when PRage had a quick recharge, though not so good now, because you could spike while still having an IMS and if you had to cancel (due to the double damage, as you do with Frenzy) you could just use PRage again as soon as the threat was over. Now it's not quite so good since you don't have the quick reactivation option you had, but you can still spike better thanks to the IMS, so it's still used a bit. 21:18, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
It is now used again a lot by warriors who cannot deal with the WE nerf and are too bad to play proper shock axe but still want to warrior. --Crowels[슴Mc슴]Mootles 21:26, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Long Recharge sez =P````` Not guud for small arenas as you'll be the focus of damage if caught using PRage lolwut. -- 21:06, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Then ANet should change the skill description to: "Elite spy stance. For 1..12 seconds, you attack 33% faster and move 25% faster, but you take double damage. This skill is invizible for your opponents." So they won't see you use this :P 15:29, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Dunno what you guys are one about, this is still much better than evisc. You still have shock + bulls, but perma IAS+IMS lets you build MUCH faster and you can spike much more often since your DW builds so much quicker. Who cares about the ectra +30 damage on evisc when you can train shit to death and ALWAYS land a bulls--Goldenstar 15:48, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

What kind of scrub runs flail on an axe warrior? The only reason you ever run flail is when you know they're on their ass. (aka, you're playing hammer) And by the way, this owns the shit out of standard shock axe. perma ias means tons of critical hits and easy bulls. Supa balla 15:53, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Eviscerate Variant

Imo, the conjure frost eviscerate build under variants shouldn't be there, seeing as how thats a different build. The name of this build is W/E Primal Rage Axe, and seeing as how PR is the elite, saying to use a different elite on the bar doesn't make sense. The variant involving iron palm i think should still be there, seeing as how you're trading 1 KD for another, but in the case of PR and eviscerate they're completely different. Pls take it off because it doesn't belong there. Daeheru 07:21, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

Nvm ignore comment. I just saw that i misread executioner's strike for eviscerate. Daeheru 07:24, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

Primal Fail?

Always wondered what are peoples opinions on this warrior build and its variants being the meta Primal rage has always seemed slightly underpowered compared to eviscerate to me, or am i looking at it the wrong way? The advantages are as far as i can see that primal rage allows you to chase kiters. A constant IMS+IAS is always good utility wise. I've just never seen this outdamage an eviscerate that can stance properly. Dios1234 16:55, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

Because everybody kites and you do ridiculous amount more domage vs kiting people than someone just in rush, you can hit bulls without looking, and dismember is built ridiculously fast for dw spam. Only advantage evis has is +17 damage every ~8 hits, but it doesnt even do as much dw. srsbsns. Rawrawr Dinosaur 17:20, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
Absolutely awesome answer. Props. Here's my advice: 8v8? go P.Rage with a Prot Monk having SB on his bar. 4v4? Swap rush for flail and run conjure or brutal weapon and spec 9-10 on it. I personally use major strength rune in 4v4 RA cuz there isn't anywhere near as much pressure and dmg output as in 8v8, where you may get spiked. With flail+conjure, you can score alot more damage and newbs also tend to stay put [or not kite] so they'll simply get killed. If they kite, and your P.Rage hasn't recharged, simply spear your nearest non-blocking target to charge your bar up for the next spike or disable a skill/res sig. --BlazingBurdy 16:21, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

You just have to hit someone one time for Rush to be charged (assuming you used Prage when Rush was charged). Though Sprint could be taken as optional for splitting. Terran 03:27, February 27, 2010 (UTC)
