Fury DPS help

6 posts in this topic



I'm having a bit of trouble with my fury spec, see I was a tank for my guild, and still do tank sometimes when one of our two bears is away, but now that I'm playing fury more often I feel like im not doing enough damage given my gear, so I thought I'd try posting here for help!


Here's my armory:


(Recently upgraded from the 670 and 675 2-handers to the swords from Gruul)


I follow the Icy Veins priority generally for dps, but don't use any priority addons or anything.


Here's some logs links (AMR since I don't know how to work warcraftlogs):


Kromog HC prog (and a kill! smile.png),d=0


Gruul HC,d=0


I feel like my damage on kromog was a bit inflated since I'm assigned to cheesing the hands with a charge+bladestorm, and for me the problem is that I think I should be doing more than 29k on Gruul, but am unsure how accurate a thought that is!


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Drop some of that versatility and try to get that 11% haste cap, helps improve your Bloodthirst CD. Your about on par, please DONT FORGET TO DUMP YOU RAGE! smile.png

Thanks, I'll try to do that.


When you say I'm about on par, is 29k single target really it for warriors? I thought it would be higher? Or is it one of those things that comes with better gear?

Heya fella,

I've been gone for a little bit so sorry for the late reply.


For starters I'd like to point out that if you're looking for assistance, being able to provide logs on will go a long way as they are incredibly detailed.

Askmrrobot is fine for a quick overview but it's very limiting if you're looking to analyze it hunting for a problem.

So that said everything I post from this point on is an educated guess and could be completely wrong.



I wouldn't worry too much about your dps at this point because it seems fine at first glance.

You are currently experiencing what a lot of warriors go through :P doing less damage than other classes with the same (or worse) gear.

Warriors are stupidly gear dependent which is probably the reason why you feel you're doing mediocre damage even though you probably aren't.

The only 'problems' I see are very minor and won't amount to any noticable dps increase at all.

Most of it will come down to getting 4 pieces of tier and getting rid of that awful versatility gear.


As for things that leave room for improvement I'd say play with Dragon's Roar instead of shockwave on AoE fights (like Operator & Beastlord).

There is literally no reason to spec shockwave unless your tank whines like a little bitch if you use roar. (Which is probably what's happening :D)

Other than that try rolling with bladestorm on Flamebender. (use it as your opener and then save it for the wolves).

Also on AoE fights try playing with Glyph of Raging Wind which should give you a very very minor dps boost as well.


There's not much I can say tbh... It's mostly down to gear I feel like.

But it's wednesday so more time to get more gear and try to get some logs going ;)

Those will allow me to go over your raid in greater detail and might help pinpoint an issue that is invisible on askmrrobot.

Thanks for your help, I shall try dropping shockwave, I'd taken it for the CC mostly, but our tanks aren't dying like they used to :). Will also look to dropping the versatility, I knew it was bad but not how bad!


Sadly I won't be raiding for a little while now, exams have me a little snowed under, I did manage to find the AMR backups and stick them on warcraft logs though, link to the most recent log below, others also visible:

      Hate to be another needy fellow who is having a hard time analyzing the logs, but I'm trying to dig through and see what I'm doing wrong, but I can't find it all...
      I have Greenskins Waterlogged bracers, so i've thrown BttE into the rotation (when I remember to check the CD) and follow with the next PS proc (hopefully Blunderbuss!) that's my only rotation variation I'm attempting. I havent been using ghostly strike, because I have a terrible time remembering to keep it up, but I'm going to try again. (I wasn't specced  with GS for these logs) 
      I think I might be having an issue with casting PS/BB too much, but I'm sure there are other issues.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      ShadowCraft: (SC seems to be weird, is it not yet fully capable of handling all the ilvl variations?)
      Thanks a bunch guys.
      Edit: note: I know I'm using old pots/flasks, I'm a bit behind on being able to upgrade, so I'm currently only using current pots/flasks on some occasions.

      Hello there. I'm looking to try and improve my dps in raids. I'm not sure where too start or how too really read logs, but I do have links too them. Any tips or help is appreciated as I'm new too raiding and wow as a whole so I'd appreciate any advice I can get. Here's a link too my logs and my armory.
      Logs - ( died on this fight)
      Armory -'jaeden/valicia/
      my user name is Valicia as you can see on the armory, but I don't know how to link to my specific character log, sorry about that.

      Hey there,
      I am wondering how i can further improve my dmg. I am doing all the things the guide recommends, but i think there is more that i can do in terms of doing DMG. I espacially want to max my dmg at single targets. I m fine with ae, but I think there is more potential. I ve tried a lot different rotation priorities and strategies, but i cant get over 257k dps with my gear. The main problem is, that there are points where my dmg drops below 100k and I think that is the main source for my misery. Can someone have a look at my log? I just did a dummy log cause i think it is the optimal way to figure out the best rotation.

      I recently switched from DK Tank to Paladin Tank (Similar stat prios) and I was wondering how much haste should I aim for and is Versatility more important than Haste like AskMrRobot says? 
      I raid twice a week but I mainly do M+ Content and I seem to be stuck at M+7 so if you have any advice there I will gladly take it. 
      Here's a link to my Paladin.
      I am in my raid spec currently and I switch my lvl 100 talent to Last Defender when I do M+.
      Any help is appreciated. :)
