Nice when used with axe, if you critical with it it gets even sweeter, but 5 energy is unspammable on a warrior. Ninjas In The Sky 14:51, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Say something? Ninjas In The Sky 20:04, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

well i thought you would get the expression but..guess not. What i meant was that (within reason) PA is indeed spammable on warriors (at least for one skirmish). On top of that, some people with use radiant insignia's on their armor. I've found that to be quite useful with some builds, but this is just my opinion.--User Raph Sig2.jpgRaph Talky 21:41, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

No guys. This skill is bad. Lord of all tyria 21:42, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

5 energy=useable once every 7,5 secs on a warrior. Ninjas In The Sky 16:05, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Warriors endurance + All energy attacks (Including this one) = Fun in PvE 75.183.125.212 22:37, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Warrior's Endurance + Power Attack + Counterattack = Fun! Go W/Rt and add Weapon of Aggression for your IAS if the thought of doing without IAS makes you cry. :) 76.11.37.57 12:25, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
I use Flail + Dash. Ofc with warrior's endurance :) Eth 14:45, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
lol, with a standard 20 energy you can get 4 hits in with this. If whatever you attacking (axe war anyways) is still standing after 4 hits then you might want to try something other than a war o.0 Sharpie 07:44, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
nah i dont think this skill is that great, it's not super terrible i guess, but skills that KD (bulls strike), cause some kind of condition (pick your fav here), or just DO SOMETHING (unblockable, or armor penetration or remove a stance etc etc...) are more useful. i think this is good on a newbie bar for someone just starting the game, but utility is better than a simple +damage skill like this.

Pre-Buff[edit]

Anyone remember when warriors used to do crap damage? This skill topped out at +20 but look at it now. Dang power creep. >,> Done25 07:09, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Lulz at Power Attack being GvG meta. 68.51.95.206 21:56, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Best warrior non-elite DPS skill -no question-[edit]

If anyone here disagrees, name me one skill in any campain that is non-elite and has higher dps than power attack (btw, combos don't count). This is a must-use for any warrior build that utilizes a weapon. --71.224.251.179 23:59, 27 May 2009 (UTC)Recon Legend

Sure it's a lot of DPS, but a lot of builds just don't have the spare energy for this skill to be spammable, especially in PvP. Necromas 08:24, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

The DPS on this skill is bad because you have no energy to make proper use of the recharge. There are better skills than this that do +damage and something else that you really should be taking. --Ckal Ktak Technobabble.jpg 20:41, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Warrior's Endurance Zealous Vow says hi.
"warriors used to do crap damage" lol. Vili 点 User talk:Vili 20:43, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
Vili is right haha. Back then they were the only way to deal any damage. Haru 14:25, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
You gotta admit though, it's not a bad opener. I mean, when you're at full energy and no adrenaline and you want to get in some cheap extra damage a the beginning of a fight, it certainly serves the purpose. --Gammastar 16:33, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
Kicks asses and takes names with prage. 5-energy body blow lolwat — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 18:18, 15 Sep 2010 (UTC)

Why would you use a bblow alternative on something that was attacking? :\ — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 19:15, 15 Sep 2010 (UTC)
haa wut, i think i missed something. Wasnt it about dealing the most dps? Demonic Fahrir talk 19:19, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
Power Attack does more damage and has a smaller recharge than Counterattack. — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 19:20, 15 Sep 2010 (UTC)
Counterattack refunds itself, Power attack does not ._. I think counterattack will keep going whereas Power attack runs out of energy and stops for a while, amirite? Demonic Fahrir talk 19:22, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
Counterattack pays for itself... if you hit an attacking foe. Hence the question: why would you use a big-damage skill on something that's attacking as opposed to, say, something that's knocked-down, kiting, or casting a spell (read: squishy). — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 19:24, 15 Sep 2010 (UTC)
Thats Peeviepee. If you want to damage in pvp roll a Pwning Strike derv and go flawless o_O but fine, Power attack wins *bites dust* Demonic Fahrir talk 19:26, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
In PvE, I flail lock myself on Zealous and spam this on recharge because lol no frenzy or bull's strike to pay for — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 19:32, 15 Sep 2010 (UTC)

Works well with Warriors Endurance 219.89.42.8 23:01, 8 January 2016 (UTC) Mat
