Demoralize is a rune effect in Threatening Shout, a Fury-spending defense and control Barbarian skill.

This rune effect retains the base skill effect, as well as taunting affected monsters to attack the Barbarian for three seconds. This is presumably useful to stop enemies from running away, but it's not clear if it would cause ranged attackers to move into melee range, or simply hold their ground and keep firing.

Also unknown is how it would work on the Treasure Goblin.
