Howl works similarly to the Necromancer skill Terror; when cast, it causes monsters near the Barbarian to run away in fear. This can be a useful skill for a Barbarian who finds himself surrounded and in trouble. As a prerequisite for all other Warcries, Barbarians of any build will need to pick up at least one point in this.
A Barbarian warrior in battle is a fearsome enough sight. They cover their bodies with strange markings and the fire in their eyes can be seen from across a battlefield. Early in his training a warrior must learn how to tap the primal energies around him and utter a howl in battle-a bellow so fierce that it will send even the battalions of the Burning Hells running in fear.
