Additional Information About Berserk

Berserk is cumulative, meaning that if you use multiple skills or items that grant the effect, their values are added together. However, their durations are independent and depend on the source of the Berserk.

It is a useful offensive effect that can help Barbarians unleash their inner fury. However, it does not make you invincible, and you will still take damage during Berserking, so make sure to use some defensive skills if necessary.
