It is this skill as well as their natural abilities as leaders that are gradually shedding the long held stereotype that the Barbarian people are merely ignorant savages.

Battle Command benefits all those affected by increasing all their skills by one. Placing additional points into Battle Commands only lengthens its duration.
Increased skill levels benefits any class, and Battle Command is arguably the most useful of all Warcries. Battle Orders, with its large increases to Mana and Life, is sometimes more useful in dangerous situations.
Casting Battle Command while the Barbarian is under its effect (i.e. immediately recasting after the first cast) makes it benefit from itself, giving a free duration bonus. This is also true for other beneficial warcries. Even if the next buff overwrites the Battle Command, it still benefits from +1 skill level.
