Overpower is an Arms Warrior talent that can be chosen at level 15.


Overpower is very useful against Rogues who use Evasion or Riposte (Outlaw Rogue) or other Arms Warriors when they use Die by the Sword as it cannot be dodged or parried. Overpower is best used after Colossus Smash since Overpower has a high chance to crit.
