    If the enhancements are working... I think the half-orc racial enhancement line is one of the BEST (if you use THF)... This is my opinion after the costs have been lowered...

    Fairly cheap to get to Brutality now... Only takes 19 AP...

    You get +2 to STR
    +4 to hit/+6 damage along the way... (not currently working I don't think)
    Improved Power Attack II

    Are those not enhancements that a THF fighter or barb would want?

    And then Brutality (20% DPS on stunned opponents - has anyone determined if this stacks with Sense Weakness?)

    You do have to utterly waste 2 AP on the orcish fury nonsense, but it's only 2 AP...

    Nope. Its 1.5x your STR-mod, not double.


    +16 one-handed becomes +24 two-handed base damage bonus.

    I have all four Orcish Weapon Training enhancements which should give me +6 damage with two-handed weapons.

    My first number damage ranged from 42-54, which is exactly the 10-22 + 32... It looks like the +6 damage from the enhancements is not applying. It should been impossible for me to do 42 damage if I had the full +38 on a 10-22 damage roll.

    I did bug report this...
    That's not right its times 1.5 not 2 so your correct range should be 40-52
    10-24 Weapon
    + 24 (16*1.5)
    + 6

    Default Who thought Orcish Fury would make a great racial core ability?

    First of all, Orcish Fury is a morale bonus. That means that it doesn't stack with Barbarian Rage or the Rage spell, either of which are easily available to half-orcs, who are often used in barbarian and melee bard builds. Not to mention Rage is a very common party buff. Oh, and Primal Scream in epic levels.

    Secondly, being below 50% hp is a very transitory state in DDO's real-time combat system. Either the character below 50% is going to be healed, or that character is soon going to drop below 0%. This means that even if morale bonuses to strength are not available to the half-orc character, the character is unlikely to get any benefit from Orcish Fury for more than a few seconds.
