A Barbarian warrior in battle is a fearsome enough sight. They cover their bodies with strange markings and the fire in their eyes can be seen from across a battlefield. Early in his training a warrior must learn how to tap the primal energies around him and utter a howl in battle-a bellow so fierce that it will send even the battalions of the Burning Hells running in fear.

- Receives synergy from:
Howl causes monsters within the area of effect to flee, just like Terror curse (the two effects do not stack). This skill is useful in situations where the player finds themselves surrounded by enemies and are unable to retreat.
As Super Uniques, Bosses and players are not affected by Howl, this skill is very useful when the player wants to get rid of their minions or monsters that impair the PvP duel: the minions run away and leave the Bosses behind, especially with enough skill points; once that is achieved, Howl can most definitely ensure that the lesser minions of Hell abandon the idea of fighting the Barbarian altogether if they cannot avoid the shout.
