Instigation is a rune effect in Bash, a Fury-generating Barbarian skill.

This rune effect causes each Bash to generate 4 additional Fury, for a total of 12 Fury per hit.

Post-Release Changes[edit]

The v1.0.4 patch[1] buffed Bash with increased fury generation and damage.

Bash changes in v1.0.4:

  • Fury generated increased from 6 to 8
    • Weapon damage increased from 150% to 165%
  • Skill Rune – Instigation
    • Bonus Fury generated reduced from 6 to 4.

As a result Instigation deals more damage than before, and while it still generates 12 Fury, the improvement with this rune effect dropped from +100% to +50%.

  • v.1.0.3 Bash + Instigation = 6 + 6 = 12 Fury.
  • v.1.0.4 Bash + Instigation = 8 + 4 = 12 Fury.
