In the tooltip for the Barbarian skill "Leap" the info says "Generate 15 Fury". Those who play with me know that I leap around like a fool constantly, but I've checked, and I often gain 0 Fury by doing this. Bug, or am I missing something?

I think that you have to leap on an enemy for the fury to generate. I don't know for sure, so this isn't an actual answer. – Amarok May 28 '12 at 4:42
Wild guess for you to do some testing: does it only generate fury when you actually hit something, whether it be a mob or a destructible object? – LessPop_MoreFizz May 28 '12 at 4:49

Any of the Barbarian abilities which generate fury only generate fury when they hit something - that means an enemy or a destructible item.

Don't you get angry when you leap into a pile of books? I know my barbarian does.

Close to the exact same answer - checked this one because it was first. I think this stinks about the Leap ability. If I hit enemies or boxes, I get Fury anyway. I guess I get more fury if I Leap, but it would be nice if I could at least give me a little when I don't hit anything, since I'm burning a cooldown. Looks like my barbarian will be furiously leaping into a lot of rotten wood in the near future. – EBongo May 28 '12 at 5:14

I just tested this one as well. If you use an offensive Fury Generating skill and do not hit anything (destructible items do count) You will generate 0 Fury. Also, Fury generated by hitting even an object like a jar holds the same decay rules as any other attack. It will take about 6 seconds to begin decaying.
