Fury Warrior Help

11 posts in this topic

Hi All,


After some advice and help.  


I have recently started playing WOW again after a 2 year break from the game. 


I have decide to make my mains my warrior Fury and Prot Spec and my Shammy Enhancement and Resto Spec.


I have having trouble reaching any kind of decent DPS in Raids at the moment to the point where i am feeling guilty i am letting the raid down. 


my rotation at present is as follows


Without Colossus Smash.



Heroic Strike



Berzerker rage

Raging Blow

Heroic Throw



With Colossus smash


Heroic Strike 


Raging blow

Wild strike



Is this how I should be attacking?


I seem to have problems getting my Raging BLow and Wild Strike to pop to i am getting out DPS'd by Arms warriors in greens at the moment



I have included a link to my armory page i am hoping that it is just my terrible gear that is letting my DPS down. 







Please help if you can.

At the moment, your gear is really bad. You're way over hits and expertise caps, your gear is not gemmed, enchanted or reforged, and it's probably as badly itemized as it can. I would suggest you either a) get better itemized pieces (You need *a lot* more crit) or b) play arms until you get better gear. As far as enchanting, reforging and gemming goes, I would suggest askmrrobot.com.


On top of that, it doesn't seem you have the rotation quite right. The Fury warrior rotation guide here on Icy-Veins is very thorough and detailed, you should take the time to read it, and come back here if you have any specific questions about the rotation.

well first

  1. Hit Rating (until 7.5%);
  2. Expertise Rating Rating (until 7.5%);

not 10% and 15%. not enchanted or reforged. im guessing you are holding off tell you get way better gear. as for the rotation i would suggest going arms tell you can gear up better the rotation is simple and easy. yes fury does more dps but the rotation is hard to master.at least untell you get better geared

Hi Ragebarr, Hi ClaytonMckown,


Thanks for the replies. I think i am going to give Arms a go for a while and see how i go. I know i need heaps better gear and after being out of WOW for 2 years i am miles behind where i would like to be. 


I'll reforge some of my gear, and gem and enchant according to askmrrobot. 


It's been a struggle finding people that will tell you anything i came back after 2 years and my level 25 guild has 2 people left in it and my server is dead. I'll be transfering servers later this month. 


thanks for the advice I'll keep you posted.

Yeah that's what i was thinking great time to come back. 


I have been reading the Arms rotation. 


  1. Use your wow_icon_ability_warrior_battleshout.jpg Battle Shout or wow_icon_ability_warrior_rallyingcry.jpg Commanding Shout and your potion (3 seconds before the pull).
  2. Begin casting wow_icon_ability_warrior_shatteringthrow Shattering Throw (1.5 seconds before the pull).
  3. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_charge.jpg Charge.
  4. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_savageblow.jpg Mortal Strike.
  5. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_dragonroar.jpg Dragon Roarwow_icon_ability_warrior_bloodbath.jpg Bloodbath, and wow_icon_warrior_skullbanner.jpg Skull Banner (also use wow_icon_trade_engineering.jpg Synapse Springs and your DPS-increasing racial ability, if applicable).
  6. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_colossussmash.j Colossus Smash and wow_icon_ability_criticalstrike.jpg Recklessness.
  7. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_decisivestrike. Slam.
  8. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_savageblow.jpg Mortal Strike.
  9. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_decisivestrike. Slam.
  10. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_decisivestrike. Slam.


Now this is going to seem stupid but what i am guessing from this is when i charge in at the start of the boss fight 




i hit mortal strike pop all the cooldowns i have hit colossus smash hit slam mortal strike and them slam slam and then do i just rinse and repeat?

Gear looks much better. If you can't afford Dancing Steel on your weapon, take windsong at least.


The rotation part you just linked is the opening rotation only. It only represent the first few seconds of a pull. The actual rotation is in sections 1.1 and 1.2 of the Arms guide. (The one you copied there is 5.2 if i recall correctly)

You actually got that backwards. When CS is up on your target, Mortal Strike > Slam > Overpower. When CS isn't up: Mortal Strike > Colossus Smash > Slam (If and only if you have 80+ rage) > Overpower > Slam

      Hi, Does anyone of you know how much haste is enough for demon blades to proc properly ? I'm actually at 20% (crit 40% mast 20%) I can switch to 50% crit but I will have 6% haste. 
      There is now a debate whether the proc chance of demon blades during GCD is actually a buff or a nerf, if anyone could bring opinion on that too it would be great.
      thank you.

      Union is an alliance guild on the PVE server Uldum, we are currently 4/7 mythic and looking to add 1 mage to our ranks. Union has been around since Vanilla and has had the same core of raiders for years. We pride ourselves on raiding just 10 hours per week and being able to maintain top 150 US throughout the last tiers of raiding. We raid:

      Tuesday 8-11 EST (5-8 PST)
      Thursday 8-11 EST (5-8 PST)
      Sunday 7-11 EST (4-8 PST)

      We are looking for a mage that not only parses high, but has good survival instincts and always comes prepared to each raid.

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system (http://wowwiki.wikia.com/wiki/EPGP). The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION

         We are a somewhat newly formed raiding guild focused 
      on providing a home to the serious players of Emerald Dream that
      want to progress through all content but can only commit a limited amount of time to the game. The core members and leadership of the guild that returned for Legion have been playing games together for 7+ years and quite a few of us know each other in real life. 
         We come from a plethora of locations, careers, and video game experiences but our love for gaming at a higher level has bonded us together. Our first mission at hand is to establish a roster of 40-45 members which will allow our members to have a 'show up when you want' attendance policy. Our progression raid invite priority will be based on attendance percentage. To accomplish this we are sounding the 'Call to Arms' in search of just a few more skilled raiders to  finish off our roster.

      This is a link to my armoury: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/emerald-dream/Ullo/simple
      These are the logs of my hc progress (sadly only nyth) where i greatly under performed: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/14698331/latest#metric=hps
      My rotation revolves around fist weaving and using as much thunder focus brews as i can, getting resets on Rising Sun Kick. My main healing spells are the 2 HOTs Enveloping mists and renewing mists, and i use my cooldowns when i see fit.
      As i realised though, i am not really performing well and i would really appreciate someone with a lot more experience than myself to help me. All help is welcome, i just want to get better!
