Dwarf Bezerker question

8 posts in this topic

This question came up during a campaign game that is currently on pause, so I figured I'd get some clafification:

 

Death Rage says it does 1 extra damage for every 2 health on the character sheet for the bezerker.

 

The question is does items/abilities that give extra health (such as Brute's +4 and Leather armor's +1) effect this, or is it literally only the health that's already printed on the card?

Death Rage referencing to number of health tokens on hero sheet. More Health hero has, more tokens he can place on his hero sheet.

i 2nd that: if you have a hero with max. 18 hit points (14 from hero sheet plus 4 from brute skill), then you can have a maximum of "extra-death-rage-damage" of +8, if there are currently 16 (or even 17) health tokens on the hero sheet (16:2=+8 extra damage). this skill is killer with high-hitpoint-heroes. :D

greetz. cipheron.

Not only high Health.

 

Imagine Krutzbeck with Weapon Mastery, Death Rage, Brute, Leather Armor, Black Iron Helm, Iron-Bound Ring, already suffered 17 health, uses his heroic feat and rolling 3 damage after attacking with Grinding Axe rolling maximum hearts and surges. It will be 20 health tokens on his hero sheet that gives +10 damage (surge from mastery), +6 damage from axe's surge abilities (3 surge rolled), +3 from heroic feat, +2 from hero ability, and 8 damage rolled on dices.

 

Devastating 29 damage... but everything in Descent is situational and on practice there is always different situation. :)

Not quite right. it says

:surge:: +1 :heart: for every 2 :heart: on your hero sheet.

 

This doesn't mean how much health they have, it means how much damage they've taken:

p. 13 > 5. DEAL DAMAGE

...

The defending player tracks the damage by placing damage tokens on his Hero sheet (in the case of heroes) or near the monster figure (in the case of the overlord). ...

 

Note that this is opposite of the way 1st Edition did things: removing heart/fatigue tokens from your character when you take damage / suffer fatigue.

Also as a side note, because of the way that your post is titled, I feel that I should point out that the Dwarf is not the only one that can be a Berserker. Any character of the Warrior archetype (red symbol on their sheet) can be either a Knight or a Berserker (or any of the other Warrior classes if you have the expansions).
