    As far as I can tell, this ability:
    - gives him 15 temporary hit points
    - sets STR and DEX to 20
    - makes him immune to fear, charm and confusion effects (All of these confirmed? Anything else?)
    - attacks the closest creature he can see, no matter who or what it is. You lose control of him (yellow circle). If he can no longer see any creatures, circle goes green and you can control him. Unless he sees a creature again before the timer runs out, that is...

    Also, is it any different in BG II (including Tutu) compared to BG1?

    I found if you can let him beat up on an enemy as the first thing he attacks he is often controllable even if there are other foes around. It may be whomever is right next to him becomes the assumed target and after that he can be controlled.

    That's the main reason I NEVER use Minsc's Berserk ability, he has a tendency to chunkify my protagonist :(

    I only think about using it when he´s at least 1.5 screens away from the rest of the party.
