When a barbarian's rage ends, the character becomes fatigued for the rest of the scene, as per the rules in the PHB.

On the other hand, the warforged race (introduced in the Eberron campaign setting) is immune to fatigue.

Does this mean that a warforged barbarian suffers no backlash after quitting rage?

(I think it does, but I'd like to get this confirmed, preferably by some further official reference, if there is any.)

  • \$\begingroup\$ I don't have a book handy but are they immune to fatigue or do they just not require sleep? Fatigue doesn't necessarily mean tired, it could mean worn out or over-extended. A warforged's body could be fatigued after extended exertion, you just have to fluff it a little differently. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Jason_c_o They are literally immune to fatigue. Eberron core, p.23. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Does the text say what whether a warforged can be exhausted (e.g. ray of exhaustion, waves of exhaustion)? \$\endgroup\$ Commented Oct 11, 2014 at 13:51

Yes, Warforged Barbarians suffer no ill-effects after raging.

From Races of Eberron, page 23:

As a warforged, your Constitution bonus allows you to rage longer, your immunity to fatigue means you suffer no ill effect when your rage ends, ...


It does not get fatigued

Well, technically what happens is the rage tries to apply the condition and then the barbarian ignores it, but "immunity" is pretty explicit - the warforged cannot suffer the effects of fatigue.
