I'm running an all melee dwarf warband with a rating of 5479. I gave my level 31 slayer the Berserker skill today and it increased my warband rating by 1209 points. The result: thanks to his now diminished weapon skill, it appears that he cannot kill in 8 hits what he could once kill in 4. Before this, my slayer was great. He was almost never taken out of action, ate ogres for breakfast, and the warband was neigh unbeatable. Now, he's taken out of action immediately in every battle and the entire warband is inevitably slaughtered to the last man if I don't flee. It is not fun and I'm debating permanently leaving the game. My warband has 3 comparative babies with one being a second (level 7) slayer. That level 7 won't be able to pull his weight for a while longer so maybe things will eventually get better but I have my doubts. As near as I can tell, if you want to take a winning dwarven warband and turn it into something so hateable that you want your money back, just add berserker to your slayer. Has anyone else used this skill and had better results?
