Showing weakness to a Warrior is a death sentence.[1]
I will give you but a moment to make peace with this world. — Peter Hottelet (TCG)

Execute is a core warrior ability learned at level seven. It is an instant ability that can only be used when the target is below 20% health. The skill costs 30 rage to use.


  • Execute is a very powerful attack, but one that requires a bit of timing and practice. The base 30 Rage is unlikely to finish the remaining 20% of the target's health in one hit.
  • The emptying of the Rage Bar means that you will be left with no rage for the next fight. The introduction of [Victory Rush] has reduced this disadvantage, but it is recommended that you recast [Battle Shout] before using execute to finish off your opponent. This will allow you to attack your next target without having to waste rage to re-buff yourself.

Patch changes

  • 0300Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2.0 (04-Aug-2009): This ability now never costs more than a total of 30 rage. The tooltip for Sudden Death has been revised to remove reference to that maximum, since the ability now behaves that way even when untalented.
  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.3.0 (07-Mar-2005): Full rage is no longer consumed when the ability does not hit.
