Battle Orders is a Barbarian Skill in Diablo II.

LoreEdit

Although skillful in single combat, the Barbarian warrior also has a talent for group tactics. It is this ability that makes him a natural leader in combat. An experienced warrior can use this skill to better array his forces in battle, enhancing their ability to overcome the enemy.

General InformationEdit

SynergiesEdit

  • Gives synergy to:
    • Shout: +5 seconds per level
    • Battle Command: +5 seconds per level
    • Concentrate: +10% damage per level
  • Receives synergy from:
Casting Battle Orders greatly increases Life, Mana, and Stamina. If either Life or Mana are not full at the moment of skill being cast, it sets the current Life and Mana to same percentage as before skill activation.

It is an extremely popular skill used in parties, due to the fact that when maxed, it almost doubles anyone's Life and Mana. Multiple Battle Orders do not stack, so, it is best that the player with the most skill points in this skill cast it for the entire party. Moreover, overwriting it with lower level Battle Orders will decrease the current Life and Mana of players, and can lead to easy deaths of party members in dangerous situations.

In earlier builds, Battle Orders enhanced the affected players' maximum Life and Mana only, leaving the orbs unfilled even if they were previously maxed out. In later versions of the game, both maximum and current reserves are increased.

Skill ProgressionEdit

Mana Cost: 7

Note that the durations in the table may seem deceptive, as the synergy with its prerequisite Shout increases its duration by at least 5 seconds.
