Forms are Barbarian self-buffs with a relatively long duration that can be easily started during combat. Each buff starts with a weak effect and gradually strengthens until reaching full potential after one minute.

Forms have no initial start up cost but do reduce the passive IF (Inner Fire) regeneration level. They have a moderate pulsing IF cost.
