Apologies in advance if I am deadwrong.

Can you give us some more explanation why you recommend Enchant Gloves - Greater Haste and Enchant Bracer - Mastery over their strength versions. If you already are superclose to the haste breakpoint, wouldn't the strength enchants suite better?
 

In my case, I will be able to achive the haste breakpoint by putting in 2-3 haste/str gems to achive the breakpoint, so the haste enchant will be rubbish for me.

 

Would be nice if you atleast mentions the strength enchants and explain if and when to use them.

 

Other then that, great guide. keep it up! smile.png

There is no mention of Colossus Smash on the Fury Rotation page, since as you said, this ability has been removed. What are you referring to?

The Haste/Mastery enchants are simply better point for point. :)

 

Isn't Cata foods and flasks better now than their MOP equivalents? Compare inv_misc_food_meat_cooked_08.jpgBeer-Basted Crocolisk to inv_misc_food_cooked_golden_black_pepperBlack Pepper Ribs and Shrimp, that's 2 more STR, plus the STA bonus.

 

If I recall correctly, Blizzard indicated that this is not intentional, so I assume it has been or will be hotfixed soon. In any case, the difference is tiny.

It's so you can get two Bloodthirsts in before Enrage falls off.

Fury Changes   In order to make sure that you’re able to spend all of your resources within each Colossus Smash window, we added an extension to it onto Raging Blow. Plus, we've updated some to spell alerts to improve usability.

 

  • Raging Blow now extends the duration of Colossus Smash by 2 seconds, and has a spell alert on the left and right slots.
  • Glyph of Colossus Smash is a new glyph available to Fury Warriors. The glyph increases the duration of Colossus Smash's effect to 20 seconds, but reduces its effectiveness.

 

these are sentences about fury and colossus smash from last 6.0.2 update notes that's why I said ''after patch 6.0.2 warrior update , this guide especcialy rotation guide must be update becouse of colossus smash''

I'm not sure if you're aware, but fury no longer has access to Colossus Smash. That's why the guide has no mention of it.

I was wondering why the stat weight says 50% crit is our soft cap?

 

Namely, since BT now only gets 30% extra crit and not double, shouldn't it be around 70% buffed? Or are there some other mechanics that says 50% is better rather than just BT?

Yeah, was wondering about this too... Is it because we can easily fit 2 bloodthirsts in 1 enrage window?

There are a few points that i disagree with in the guide and if i am wrong I would love to know why. :)  This is mostly off the cuff theory craft that i did over lunch looking at my character and abilities in game. Will try to get damage meters working tonight to see if i can actually get numbers on a combat dummy.  My Character is Grogimer on Dragonblight that i am basing this on. 

 

On Tier 4 Talents:

Dragon roar is better for single and multiple targets unless it is against a boss or elite immune to stun. Even with the longer timer dragon roar does more damage to a single target and is a guaranteed crit. Currently looking at my character and storm bolt does less than half of the damage a dragon roar will on a normal elite target. And shockwave becomes a better choice than dragon roar as your cooldown is reduced. Right now i can get off 4 shock waves to 1 dragon roar as long as i am hitting 3 or more targets.

 

Second unquenchable thirst i believe is a better damage dealer for single target than furious strikes if you have your crit above 40%. Once you have this you are almost guarenteed for 100% uptime on enrage. 70%+ time you will follow a bloodthirst with a raging blow which is better damage than a wild strike. The other 30% will be a wild strike (this reduces as you get more crit and crit buffed) And the only time to priority over wild strike is if you are doing AOE or in a boss fight and you have storm bolt. (some may say i will be rage starved by using wild strike 30% of the time but last night i was killing elites on timeless isle and never noticed me running out. Will pay more attention this evening.)

 

Rage dumping is over. It is used for firing off an ability when you miss up to 2 crits with bloodthirst.If you miss 2 you should be firing off berserker rage or hitting bloodthirst again. which will give you raging blows.

 

Execute rotation. You have raging blow and wild strike in the rotation. In reality neither of those should be there as execution is better damage. You loose 20 rage each cycle of bloodthirst execute so depending on your auto attack rage  generation you may have to throw in another bloodthrist around number 6 execute. 

 

And i am out of time. :)  will post more later.

This is wrong. It was giving it to me at lunch time when i was farting around with it. And i checked the patch notes on the wow site and i don't see it. So unless they did it in the last hour it is still giving it.

1) This is untrue. Storm Bolt is a better spell right now in single target as long as the target in question in stunnable. Try simming it with the latest simc builds, Dragon Roar does not pull out ahead. Not very sure about shockwave, would hae to look into it, but the opportunity cost for all those GCDs would like be far too much to outweigh the damage it does.

 

2) Half untrue. After Sudden Death got nerfed back to 10% during patch day, people ran simulation in T16M BIS gear to see which talent was currently optimal. FS > SD > UQT on single target for TG, but for SMF SD is still > FS. I'll fix that.

 

3) Not wasting rage is still more important than enrage uptime. If you have zerker rage up, you shouldn't be losing enrage uptime in the first place, anyway.

 

4) Raging Blow is still better DPR than Execute, and as such still has a place in the execute rotation. Execute replaces Wild Strike as your primary rage dump, the only reason Wild Strike is included right now is when bloodsurge is proc'd, making it free. But even that's low on the priority list.

1.a. Still disagree on the stormbolt on stunable targets. And if the sim is showing it is better i would question the sim. Or I am missing something. I would attach screenshots of the tooltips of the abilities in game but can not right now. But you can get 2 stormbolts off in the time it takes to do 1 dragon roar. Without crit on either the stormbolts have less damage dealing on 2 uses than 1 dragon roar. After that  dragon roar is a guaranteed crit and bypasses armor. Damage on my toon for SB is 1216 and DR is 2670  

 

 

1.b. you are probably right on the missed cooldowns on shockwave but if you are looking at 3+ mobs i would really have to sit down and look at what i would be giving up in that same circumstance. 

 

 

 

Will reply to the rest as i get some time this evening. 

 

Just adding to this since it is the last one in the chain.

2.  You may be right. After going back through doing the numbers by hand with the rotation i have in mind i would only match the dps but would have rage issues. Will play it both ways over the next week and see. 

3. with enrage down i loose 45% of the damage i deal during that window because of mastery. So i will disagree that it is less important. However i can see your point as long as the enrage window is down for less than 3 seconds.

4. I will concede on. :)

Even then, that is haste, hast till 11% then crit to 70% makes more sense. Can someone verify this with sims?

1) On STUNNABLE targets, yea sure DR is better. But the amount of boss fights with stunnable targets are few and far between, and on the ones with them you'd go DR anyway.

2) Anecdotal evidence, is. Sim it for a definitive answer.

3) Right now we don't even have much downtime on enrage due to massive crit % in current gear, but in WOD we'll be unenraged all the time without much to do about it. If you're not near rage cap, you can always just sit on empty GCDs waiting for enrage, anyway.

Can you update your feedback on the new T16 Bonus', Since Colossus smash no longer exists, the 2pc set now increases bloodthirst damage by 10%, imo Bloodthirst doesn't hit very hard to begin with, making this of little use, however since it is a very frequent spell, is this worth gearing for? Also execute hits like a truck now, is it wise to gear for the 4pc now?

      Elisande and Gul'dan are available for testing on December 13. Another set of blues is up dealing with MM Hunters, Rogues and Destruction Warlocks.
      Gul'dan PTR Testing
      Elisande and Gul'dan  will be tested out on Public Test Realms for the first time on Heroic difficulty. You can preview all encounter abilities in the in-game journal. Gul'dan's encounter has a Mythic-only phase, where Khadgar returns Illidan to his dormant body, but he will be somehow possessed. This phase information was removed from the journal lately.
      Watcher
      On Tuesday, December 13, we will be conducting focused raid tests of Heroic Nighthold bosses.
      Remember that Heroic difficulty scales for groups between 10 and 30 players, so feel free to assemble and bring a group of any size within that range. 

      Tuesday, December 13

      Elisande – Heroic Nighthold
      13:30 PST (16:30 EST, 22:30 CET)

      Gul'dan – Heroic Nighthold
      15:00 PST (18:00 EST, 24:00 CET)

      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

      Following yesterday's blue posts from feedback threads on the official forums, we got a few updates specifically for MM hunters, Destruction Warlocks & Rogues.
      Marksmanship Hunters
      Sigma
      We definitely understand that Marksmanship Hunters were used to a version of Vulnerable on live that was, for all practical purposes, full uptime (i.e. it could be up for every or virtually every Aimed Shot). Skilled players will still be able to have a great majority of their Aimed Shots affected by Vulnerable even in 7.1.5, albeit with a higher demand on focus management and good use of Windburst. That is intended, even if it involves losing a degree of comfort in essentially never being without a Vulnerable when you want it. The debuff is less diluted and has more significance when it requires that sort of attention, and it is not without payoff: the damage of an Aimed Shot with Vulnerable is significantly higher than in 7.1, and can be further increased with the new Patient Sniper. The ability to use Piercing Shot with Vulnerable (and potentially Patient Sniper) is an example of a new option allowing a very strong burst.

      While the fundamental mechanic driving it is a proc, the proc rate is quite high, and our goal is to make sure it is the sort of randomness that provides variation to a rotation while allowing responsive gameplay and room for mastery. The ability to wait on a Hunter's Mark while pooling focus to get full value from the Vulnerable will be more important than before. Windburst, as well as the talent options Sidewinders and Sentinel, allow on-demand Vulnerables as a resource to deal with situations where you have focus but not a Mark (or simply to make sure you have one for a key burst moment without having to react to a proc). Finally, removing the Vulnerable requirement for Marked Shot to do strong damage removes a reliance on multiple rapid procs and/or Sidewinders in order to use consistent buffed Marked Shots.

      As the PTR goes on, we welcome feedback on what problems turn up when you try to put this into practice, but I wanted to explain a bit more what our expectation was.

      Rogues
      Sigma
      Cheat Death at 6 minutes is ridiculous... At the very least they need to make it reset on death, or no one is going to use it.
      It does.

      To say a bit more on the 7.1.5 changes to various “cheat death” effects, including Cheat Death, Cauterize, Purgatory, and Last Resort: firstly, the cooldown increase is not the only change—the cooldowns (specifically, the cooldown-enforcing debuffs) will now clear on death. So if you Cheat Death early in a dungeon, yes, you should avoid dying again for the next 6 minutes. However, in the event you do die (or the group wipes), you will return to combat with Cheat Death once again available.

      More broadly, we examined the value of these effects as a whole and concluded they are too easily available. When Cheat Death was first added as a deep Subtlety talent (before the change to modern talent rows), its power and cooldown reflected the significant investment into that tree. In the current game, not only is its opportunity cost much lower, but, taking a look at the gameplay of healing and survivability challenges, the power level of such a frequent extra life is very high. For example, Rebirth has a 10 minute cooldown, and is a distinctively powerful ability that significantly contributes to a class’s perceived power in dungeons. Reincarnation has a 30 minute cooldown, and is far from being meaningless or forgotten. If we were adding Cheat Death and its ilk today and evaluating its power, there would be little justification for a cooldown as short as 2 minutes. Preventing a death that might otherwise have scuttled the entire current attempt at a dungeon or raid boss has more value than that.

      On Last Resort in particular, we are aware that Vengeance Demon Hunters felt somewhat reliant on this to avoid deaths to unexpected burst damage, and we will be monitoring whether they need other changes to compensate (for example, they have increased health on PTR, increased baseline damage reduction, and a stronger Metamorphosis effect). And on Purgatory, its cooldown was increased the least because it conditional, and it was also made more reliable: the effect will now always last for 3 seconds regardless of whether you momentarily go above 0 HP during that window.

      Destruction Warlocks
      Sigma
      One problem that Destruction Warlock had was a number of talent rows with very obvious "single-target" vs. "AoE" talent picks. This has clear downsides--a requirement to swap talents often (and as a corollary, a feeling of being significantly crippled when not using the ideal talent loadout for a given situation). Clearly, it's a DPS loss single-target to say you can no longer have both Eradication and Reverse Entropy, and a DPS loss in some AoE situations to say you can no longer have both Cataclysm and Fire and Brimstone. But making that swap, and then making sure throughout PTR that Destruction DPS remains reasonably consistent with live, will leave the spec more well-rounded and not as pigeonholed by talent choices in a given situation. PTR already has buffs to Doomguard and Imp damage that help with numbers in all situations, as well as buffs to various talents to help futher improve flexibility.
