Launch is a rune effect in Leap Attack, a Fury-generating Barbarian skill.

This rune effect preserves the base skill function, and adds the same stunning effect to monsters at the point of take off, as well as those where the Barbarian lands. This makes it a more useful escape skill, by stunning monsters around the Barbarian when he leaps for safety.
