Guidance / High end raiding advice (FURY)

6 posts in this topic



1st post on the forum so bare with me.


I have been playing fury for a few weeks - always played tank in the past on my warrior. Although my gear is slightly behind the rest of my guild due to the main spec swap and starting the content late - (I haven't yet got the cloak) I want to do everything I can to push the numbers in raids and keep up with the rest.


At the moment my burst is huge (crits depending) but my sustained damage across certain fights is a lot lower than I would like.


and now with progress on Animus I am having to wait on positioning to be able to open full blast on the boss - but with trinket procs already being on CD from getting aggro on the small add that I need to take I was wondering if anyone could give some advice.


My dps is not in a horrible place but I want to be doing the absolute max that I can do given my gear.

Also link to our wowprogress page so you can see the comp on progress fights:


any tips on specific fights would be great or just to discuss the above.

A non warrior here who noticed about trinket procs .... switching them between slots will lock them out for the first 20-30sec of the fight which should give you a good enough time to get an agg lead on your add.


Ofc there are other roles to do on the fight which may then make you incur the trinket procs. It all depends on the timing of the fight to whether it better to delay them or not.


For anyone with a better understanding of the warrior class ... I would recommend having some WoL parses available to peruse.

That's actually an awesome suggestion, never even thought about doing that. 


My guild don't use WoL much I will see if we have any up.

After digging up some Logs:



a first glance:

try to get your Enrage uptime higher, for some fights(and even kills) it was as low as 41%
use Bloodthirst for this and for more rage generation, for some fights the amount of Bloodthirst usages would implicate a fight as half as long
Use Prepots and Pots and use your CD´s(Berserker Rage counts too) more frequently; on that Ji-Kun kill you used Blood Fury 4 times but Recklessness and Skull Banner just 2 times
Additionally for that fight, you only got Primal Nutrient 2 times, though you apparently collected 2 feathers(even losing 1 stack through capping) and did not get one during your second Reck/banner usage

Yea very valid point, do you know of a decent addon for tracking this? 

In all fairness my gear has jumped quite a lot in the past week/2weeks - now with my crit being over 30% I am hoping that this makes a difference. 


To be honest I thought I was bloodthirsting on CD (obviously fight permitting) but I will have to keep any eye on that.


The use of reckless/banner would have been down to me not wanting to use it on a nest so I would have held onto it to get the extra damage out on the boss in JiKun HC.


its quite a change swapping from tanking all of MoP to playing dps - something I haven't done on the warrior since vanilla.

      Hey guys, I was wondering about the Legendary Mannoroth's Bloodletting Manacles. Would it be better to Keep Warpaint because of the Passive on it or switch to Furious Charge?

      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:
      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%
      Link to armory:
      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!

      Hey there,
      I obtained 2 relics recently and can't decide which one is better for my ilvl 880 Fury war (for raiding and PvE purposes).
      – a 885 relic with Raging Berserker (1% to damage under Enrage) or
      – a 880 relic with Wrath and Fury (5% damage to Raging Blow)
      Could you point me to the right direction, please.

      A weak aura set up to help with fury warrior. Enrage is just the enrage icon on the left side, the other two are both part of the rotation helper.
      Basically shows when enraged, and tells you what buttons to press.
      UPDATE 8/29/16
      Moved weak aura's to center of screen, took the WW one out of the rotation helper, now when it is active use it instead of raging blow or furious slash. The Bloodthirst during this time can be a little off, I'm not certain if you should only do it when not enraged or if you should be using it on CD. I may modify the WA's to have the aoe button show up when multiple targets are around, but have the full rotation there instead of just the WW button like it is now. Also moved everything to
      UPDATE 8/6/16
      Alright I just released an updated Rotation Helper, this one will suggest Bloodthirst/Raging Blow if the CD is less than 1.5s, instead of suggesting Furious Slash. Note that this is a little off if you have ANY haste. If you want it to be right you need to modify 4 Weak Aura's.
      Bloodthirst - GCD
      Bloodthirst - Enrage - GCD
      Raging Blow - GCD
      Raging Blow - Enrage - GCD
      On all of these, for the first trigger you need you change the remaining time from 1.5 to whatever you GCD is
      If you need to figure out what your GCD is, I use the following macro to do so:
      /cast Furious Slash
      /run local f=GcT or CreateFrame("Frame","GcT") f:SetScript("OnUpdate",function() print("CD:",(select(2,GetSpellCooldown("Furious Slash")))) f:Hide() end) f:Show()
      UPDATE 8/15/16
      Added seperate bar for CDs (should have all covered, including orc/troll racial)
      Added Odyn's Fury
      Changed how WW works. (If there are atleast 3 targets in range it will always show the WW icon, basically, as well as the number of mobs in range in the center of the icon.)
      Some other minor bug fixes in the rotation helper.
      Added Bladestorm (I'm not really sure when this is supposed to be used TBH so right now it shows if 3 mobs in range and off CD.)
