Unrelenting Assault is a talent in the Arms tree, you will need to spend 37 points in Arms to max it.

Tips and Tactics

Two talent points well-spent in any deep-arms build. Overpower is one of the most effective moves in a warrior's arsenal, and combined with [Taste for Blood] and  [Glyph of Overpower], Overpower will be up often enough to make use of the lowered cooldown. When landing an Overpower on a player who is casting, reduces their magical damage and healing by 25/50% for 6 sec.

This talent, at two ranks, does not actually reduce the cooldown of [Overpower] by 4 seconds. Instead, the Global Cooldown of any other ability following Overpower is cut down to 1 second, while Overpower itself is on a 1.5 second recharge. To maximize damage, you should keep aware that Overpower will cause a syncopation of sorts in your rotation, allowing you to start the next ability in your rotation half a second sooner.

The ability also causes a curious synergy with [Revenge]. Revenge is enabled for several seconds after a successful block, parry, or dodge. With rank 2 of this talent, you can repeatedly spam it until it is disabled. When tanking as Arms while leveling, use this to your advantage.

Patch changes

You can now only use Revenge once per block/dodge/parry with this talent.
