Icon while active.

Berserker's Rage
Berserker's Rage icon.png
Self / Enemies
While active, Troll Warlord swaps from using ranged to melee attacks. Melee attacks have a chance to bash, dealing bonus damage and stunning the target. Berserker's Rage also grants additional movement speed, armor, and increased attack speed.

Whirling Axes has different functionality while Berserker's Rage is active.
Cast Animation: 0+0
Armor Bonus: 6
Move Speed Bonus: 10/20/30/40
Attack Range Loss: 350
Base Attack Time: 1.5
Bash Chance: 10%
Bash Damage: 20/30/40/50
Bash Duration: 0.8/1.2/1.6/2
Cooldown: 0
Partially disabled by Break. The bash is disabled, all other components are not.
Partially usable by illusions. Melee illusions cannot bash.
Buff Berserkers Rage: Dispellable with death only.
Debuff Bashed: Dispellable with strong dispels.
Like his anger, Troll Warlord's supply of axes is infinite.


  • Modified values: None.
  • The toggling of Berserker's Rage is not registered as a spell cast and thus does not proc any on-cast effects.
  • Berserker's Rage does not interrupt Troll Warlord's channeling spells upon cast.
  • When toggling off, all changes are reverted and he becomes a ranged unit again.
  • Turns Troll Warlord into a melee unit with 150 attack range, meaning items treat him as such (e.g. Battle Fury icon.png Battle Fury, Stout Shield icon.png Stout Shield).
  • When toggling on while a ranged projectile is flying, it is treated as a melee attack by Battle Fury and Vladmir's Offering icon.png Vladmir's Offering.
    • This means that it can cleave in an area in front of Troll Warlord as well as lifesteal the full 15%.
  • Berserker's Rage persists through Troll Warlord's death. If Berserker's Rage was active upon death, he respawns with it activated.
  • The bonus damage is dealt in one instance together with the attack damage, and counts as attack damage as well.
    • It can be lifestealed off of, but it is not considered by crit or cleave.
    • It is also not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions, but can be reduced with flat reductions.

  • The axes travel at a speed of 1500.
  • Spawns 5 axes which spread up to 25 degrees and affect units within 100 radius around them.
  • Has no starting radius, the axes spawn at one point in front of Troll Warlord. So the total area is shaped like a cone.

  • If Troll Warlord dies, the spell ends and the axes disappear.

  • Only units within 100 range of an axe get damaged and blinded.
  • Can hit units up to 450 range away (350 max spin radius + 100 axes radius).
  • The visual effects of this spell are offset and do not reflect the actual currently affected area.

Attack Speed Bonus per Stack: 15/20/25/30
Disabled by Break. Prevents gaining new stacks. Also nullifies bonus attack speed of already existing stacks.
