Fury Spec - Haste to Mastery changes

7 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

First topic on Icy! (English is not my native language so sorry about the mistakes :D)

I am very curious about the massive stat revamp I can observe from 7.1 deployment. I gave a look at several top DPS fury and I saw they prefer now mastery over haste. Can someone explain to me what justify the changes?

Is that only due to the +8% dmg (on BT, RB, Rampage) we got with the patch?

In case if you're interested to "optimize" me (I read this morning a lot of your advices), please find armory and logs (6/7Hm last wednesday - I have looted 5 pieces of gear during the raid)!

Thank you very much!

Some examples:

You can navigate here, you see that most of the Fury warriors are revamping to Mastery.

I don't think that they're stacking mastery over haste, just that mastery is our best stat after haste & str, and a lot of the high-end gear has mastery on it. No one is socketing or enchanting for mastery either, most everyone is still doing the Saber's Eye of Strength and Quick Dawnlights, along with the typical haste/str enchants.

I'm at ilvl 856 with just under 32% mastery without even trying (26.15% haste).

If it's only that, my bad then :p

So it's not really necessary to reach 30% haste anymore ? (soft cap?)

Thank you for your time!

The goal for the haste 'soft cap' is ~24-26%, as that allows an extra GCD during Enrage. Haste continues to be extremely potent beyond that 24-26%, so I consider that the bare minimum goal.

I'm kinda agreeing with OP as well. Here is my armory : http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ysondre/Blastwaar/advanced 

I really focused on haste since everyone was claiming that it was the go to stat for fury. So here i am, sitting with over 12k haste. My mastery kinda went down and my crit is abyssimal. What I see from top raiders is that they are aiming for balanced stats now (ie 6kcrit 8khaste 8k mastery) and their dps is up the roof. Since I got Ceann-Ar charger my enrage uptime is about 75%. I'm wondering if dropping some haste for some mastery and some crit would be better than what I have now. 

 

For the record I'm doing the same Dps on dummies (315k) as I was doing with way lower ilvl but much more mastery.

      I recently received the execute legendary ring, looking for advice on any way to fit these execute charges into the rotation prior to execute phase.  Currently I am using the extra charge in the following ways
      When not enraged: use as a filler in place of furious slash
      When enraged: raging blow > execute
      Currently at 856 Ilvl I am pulling (with flask) 280k+ so I feel like i'm on the right track with the proc usage.  Looking for any tips though

      Hey everyone and thanks for popping in and providing with some care :)

      I've always been a pretty decent warrior in previous expansions. Maybe not over the top but never bad. However, this expansion, I'm feeling terribly weak. I perform so much subpar my gearlevel that my precious warrior now is nothing but a mere alt.
      SO,  I finally decided that it's time to stop fooling around, I want to become a good warrior again! 
      I've put up a log from an LFR grp on Xavius and can ofc put up more logs if needed. I know I messed up a few priorities in this fight due to utter chaos (LFR u know ;P) but apart from that it's no MAJOR difference from how I normally perform unfortunately:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/V3R9gAFZWDdhN68b#type=damage-done&source=5
      My gear is mostly tanking stuff but the stats are not that different in the end:
      ilvl: 868
      Crit: 13%
      Haste: 33%
      Mastery: 27%
      Vers: 9%

      I am using simcraft and pawn for my gearchoice and regularily scan to see if anything changes with new gear etc.
      Help is much appreciated and many thanks in advance!

      How does Battle Cry actually work? Does the 100% crit chance guarantee a crit? I ask because I've been trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong to boost my DPS and noticed today, multiple times, while working on the Raid dummy I was not enraging when I expected to due to Battle Cry being up. 
       
      I created a short clip that shows this happening:  
       
       
      Is this normal or a bug?
