Storm of Steel


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Storm of Steel is a rune effect in Overpower, a situational Barbarian skill.

This rune effect hurls up to 3 axes at nearby targets for 50% weapon damage each. This is an odd function, as it's a Fury-free ranged attack, but the Barbarian seldom has any need to throw axes as nearby targets, and the skill doesn't have much targeting range.
