Description of Skill
Stratagems: Raging is a combat-related support skill that focuses primarily upon offensive strategies involving increased damage and rage-induced tactics. Passively, the Stratagems: Raging skill allows you to focus your 'Rage' upon an opponent, using the command [rage. Once a target has been selected as the focus of your Rage, every successful blow upon that target will increase your Rage Level, while a miss will lower it by 25 points, deduct between 1 and 5 stamina, and remove you from Enraged status if your Rage Level drops below 50, if currently Enraged. As your Rage Level increases, you will gain a Damage Increase bonus equivalent to your Rage Level, and each strike will deal more and more damage (to a maximum of a 100% bonus at the highest level of Rage). Once your Rage Level reaches 100 points, you will enter the Enraged state, which is used in conjunction with Raging skill abilities to augment and enhance their effects. The Enraged state will last for thirty seconds. If you defeat your Rage target while Enraged and while possessing a Rage Level of 100, your character will also regain 10% to 25% of their Hit Points, Stamina and Mana. The amount of Rage built per successful hit upon an opponent is calculated by (Stratagems: Raging / 10) for NPCs, and (Stratagems: Raging / 15) for players. Stratagems: Raging is also used to purchase and subsequently use a number of combat-based skill abilities available only through the Stratagems: Raging skill.
This skill can be raised 1% at a time for a cost of 3 Animus. A total investment of 300 Animus points will raise this skill to a 100% skill value.
