    Title: Berserk Skill Duration Not Scaling
    Reproduction Rate:100%
    Blocker? No
    Details:Unlike every other non-stance (stances play by their own rules) buff in the game, the Berserk skill does not gain any duration as it levels. Even the stances start with twice as long of a duration as Berserk. I believe this is an artifact of a older skill design that has not been updated and thus qualifies as a bug.

    Steps to Reproduce
    1. Check Berserk duration
    2. Level Berserk
    3. Notice no change in duration

    Actually, this is by design. The amount scales but not the time. Also, this is closest to a "Stance" and those also don't scale time based on level. BTW, this is super powerful, especially when stacked with stances. Shocked it isn't used more!

    My combat effectiveness dramatically increased as soon as i replaced this skill with shield of ice in my deck(the two obviously can't be used together with the negative aspect of it). I am very skeptical that this skill can be considered "super powerful".

    Even if it is close to a stance, it only has half the duration of one.

    Edit: With a two handed axe, my damage increase from berserk on ground pound is slightly more than my "inner strength" which is 9 levels lower. The cost for that is likely 7% or more of all incoming damage not being reduced, and it does not add health like "inner strength" and lasts less than half of the duration.

    Yep, downside is too severe from my testing as well. Better off to use buff alternatives, as Noric has outlined, imo.

    @Attenwood it might be appropriate at this point to move this thread to feedback as @Chris indicated it is working as intended.
