- Brutal Assault
- The strength of the enemy bears down upon the flag carrier, increasing damage taken by 10%, and limiting movement speed.
- Duration: 10 seconds
Brutal Assault is a stacking debuff found in battlegrounds. Brutal Assault is first applied through the debuff building to 5 stacks, at which point it turns into 5 stacks of Brutal Assault. After that, a new stack of Brutal Assault is applied every 30 seconds, up to a maximum of 15 stacks. Brutal Assault produces the same damage increase as Focused Assault, but additionally limits the target to normal running speed.
