Birthright is a rune effect in Hammer of the Ancients, a Fury-spending Barbarian skill.

This rune effect has a 10% chance of causing enemies to drop treasure or health globes. The effectiveness of this one is hard to judge, as more than 10% of enemies drop treasure or health globes anyway.

Post-Release Changes[edit | edit source]

v1.04 changes: [1]

  • Hammer of the Ancients
    • Weapon damage increased from 200% to 325%
