  • Ultimate Aggressive War Horn (morph of War Horn in Alliance War Assault skill line) – One of the best group ultimates in the game, granting us and our allies 10% more Health, Magicka, and Stamina for 30 seconds.  This means tons of resources AND health for your group, allowing more damage and healing to be done.  Furthermore, it also grants Major Force for 9.5s at rank IV, increasing your allies Critical Hit Modifier by 15% (additive).
