If you wanted a HtH unit that you NEEDED to tear up the field with, which would you choose (assuming they both had MoK)? Possessed with Daemonic Mutation would get an extra attack, plus they have an extra point in strength and leadership, and they have an invulnerable save. On the downside, they're almost twice as expensive as Berzerkers. Opinions?
Hmmm... if you are playing a 1500+ point game go with possessed, any less and you would be very outnumbered.
It's not Raymond Luxury Yacht, It's pronounced throat wobbler mangrove.

I think daemonic talons would be more useful then mutation on guys with the mark of khorne (n cheaper too) since youll be throwing those extra dice to get those extra 6s for extra pain. But for your questian I would agree with TP, generally the zerkers would be more useful till you had more points to spend in higher point games.
It depends on how you tool up your berzerkers. If you give them frag, chain axe, and furious charge they are almost as much as the possesed. The furious chage lets them last longer against initiative 4&5 guys (eldar and sms) If your going up against dreads though go for the possesed. Mmmmmm fun.
I think that if you are having one or the other the berzerkers are better. However if you have an army of the berzerkers the possesed really help them out.
Its not very points-efficient to give possessed mutation though. Khorne chainaxes are a much better choice, and very cheap though. With mutation, your still bouncing off 3+ and 4+ armor and for 10x the points of a chainaxe. If you dont like that option, daemonic talons are still uch better than mutation IMO.
But I would still rather have berserkers to answer your question. They arent around the same points. Posessed w/ mutation and furious charge are 35pts. berserkers w/ chainaxes and furious charge are only 23. Plus berserkers are troops.
But if you give posessed chainaxes, its a different story.
I use both and my conclusion is : Berzerkers, they have taken down almost anything.
But my opponent tends to avoid the possessed, might be that the lord is with them.
But 8-10 berzerkers with khornate chainaxes and a aspring champion with a power fist is a great unit.
Err, Possessed with Furious Charge? And how would you go about fielding such a unit with your codex?

whoops, forgot possessed cant have veteran skills <_<
use zerkers in a small point game and possesed in higher point games. my bros zerkers charged a chaplain and his retinue and the chaplain knocked them senseless with his power weapons, you may need that invulnerable save but use zerkers if ur opponent field plenty of basic troops.
