Victory for one means agony for another.

Victory Rush is a core warrior ability learned at level five. It is an instant attack that can only be used within 20 seconds after you land the Killing Blow on an enemy that yields experience or honor. It also heals the warrior for 15%.

Those with the Arms specialization will deal slightly more damage.

Victory Rush can only be used if you get the Killing Blow on an enemy that would yield honor or experience (basically, an enemy whose level is not grey).

This ability can be used after scoring the killing blow off of snakes from a hunter's Snake Trap, so it is strongly recommended that you favor attacks such as [Sweeping Strikes] while these snakes are on you, as every time you kill one you will be able to cast Victory Rush on the offending hunter (or any other enemy).
