I created a Minotaur Barbarian (Berserker) Level 1 with the Character Builder. I got the Berserker Fury feat and it reads:

Enter Berserker fury until end of encounter when you use a barbarian primal attack power or as a minor action when bloodied: defender's aura ends, melee basic attacks deal 1D8 extra damage

If I understand correctly my Devastating Strike, Howling Strike, Avalanche Strike and Swift Panther Rage make me enter the fury. But I was wondering about the Defender Aura, can I use it after getting into the Fury?

If you need to see the character sheet

  • \$\begingroup\$ All your powers end your Defender Aura. All your powers are better on an original Barbarian. Why do not you just play a Barbarian? \$\endgroup\$ – András Mar 27 '14 at 20:24
  • \$\begingroup\$ I´m new to character creation and I was helping someone building this berserker. I guess I'll redo the powers. \$\endgroup\$ – Osukaa Mar 27 '14 at 21:24
  • \$\begingroup\$ Berserker is not for beginners. It is not for anyone really. ;) If you want a defender, create a Knight, if a striker, play a Barbarian. Those are really beginner friendly. \$\endgroup\$ – András Mar 28 '14 at 12:25


Once you enter Berserker Fury your Defender Aura disappears and you cannot reactivate it (minor action) until you are no longer in Berserker Fury.


When you use a barbarian primal attack power, you enter your Berserker Fury until the end of the encounter. Alternatively, you can use a minor action while you are bloodied to enter the fury. The fury has the following effects.

  • Your defender aura ends, if it was active, and you cannot use defender aura or vengeful guardian until the fury ends.

  • Some of your powers, such as your barbarian martial at-will attack powers, gain additional benefits, as noted in those powers.

  • Your melee basic attacks deal 1d8 extra damage. This extra damage increases to 2d8 at 11th level and 3d8 at 21st level.
