The Rage skills does two notable things relating to PvP. The first is it allows you to initiate combat with, attack, and knock out anybody at all. As long as you have no visitor debuff, and Criminal Acts is on, you can attack someone. The other is when bought it opts you in for murder and death by PvP. If a character with Rage knocks out another character with Rage, he can continue attacking him while he is unconscious and kill him. This only works if you have Rage, and are attacking someone who is unconscious that also has Rage. If you have Rage and knockout out someone without Rage, or vice versa, no death can come to either of them. This also means if you have Rage and attack/are attacked by someone else with Rage and knocked out, they can kill you. As such, Rage is both a profitable but dangerous skill to invest in.
Also, only characters with Rage can have a Nidbane sent after their murderer.
Unlocking this skill gives you the ability to use the emote Rage!.
"Insults fell on his mind,
Like sparks on wet leaves,
Until, one day, the leaves were dry."
You've had quite enough, and someone's going to get it hard and fast. Rage allows you to initiate combat with other Hearthlings.
Beware that each breach of the Hearthlaw leaves a Crime Scent -- which can be used to track you down -- and that being an outlaw prevents your character from being logged out for some time after the offense.
