This skill should not be used only outside combat, while yes it's a great initiator it's primary purpose should be to close the gap between the warrior and his opponent. (I know Charge of Anger is available at level 50, but this skill should be low level and available to both skill trees early!)
I would propose that if used outside of combat that it remains the same as it is now, but if used in combat the warrior loses the stun component to the charge (balance would equal a slightly longer cooldown on Charge Skill 10-15secs). There is enough Crowd Control(CC) in other classes to facilitate a clever player to maintain their distance should they face a warrior, but as it stands now...the only chance a warrior has versus range would be to see him first even then that is still no guarantee, as they still have CC options which can easily remove them from melee range.
Then to help "tanks" replace the high end Charge of Anger with a passive or aura "Roar of Anger" that reduces enemy crowd control skill duration.
This skill is considered a finisher yet it seems quite subpar, increase in damage would seem to be the easiest route to go here, but adding another Bleed DoT would help greatly with DPS ensuring a kill for the Warrior.
This skill should probably have a knock back effect on enemies.
Think the effect of a surprise attack would slow enemy responses making them attack slower or increase cast times on their skills by 20% can stack up to 3 times.
I think that was what I came across initially...of course feel free to add to or discuss.

2) Stormy Blow - Possibly, would have to look at that skill closer.
3) Surprise Attack - It currently reduces enemy attack which is arguably far stronger than a attack speed debuff due to the fact you can weave normal attacks and skills. It also staks up to 3 times, so you can really ruin a physical DD's damage. However, it doesn't seem to do anything to mages - it should DEFINITELY increase cast speed time.

Suprise Attack: From a PvE standpoint so many enemies use elemental attacks later in game, that a 20% debuff on physical attacks is useless. If this skill came earlier in character life as it is...then yes it would be safe to say it's useful. In PvP if you are fighting a warrior yeah guess it would be nice, but good rangers would likely kite using normal attacks as skills would force them to stop moving, and it's also hard to stack the debuff at 5.0sec recharge, when the debuff only last 5.0secs especially on ranged players.
Attack Speed debuff coupled with Cast Speed increase would effect the overall DPS far greater IMO.
Besides I think physical damage reduction should be passive for a warrior(only), based on overall defense rating. 1-3% for every 500-750 defense would be a nice start.

Warriors and Rangers are using physical attack....use it on them. 2H Warriors do MASSIVE damage, debuffing them is wise. I do agree with cast speed increases so it does something versus mages.

Most notably I didn't say it should outright kill them, but the added DoT would more than likely ensure a kill should they not be able to heal, and just run away. Right now the skill is NOT fine as it is.
