1. Class Overview

Coming into Legion, Fury has seen some quality of life changes to bring it up to speed and attempt to get away from some of the more limiting factors of the past, whilst still maintaining that core focus on Enrage Icon Enrage. Boasting very strong sustained damage with frequent burst windows and a robust toolkit through talents allowing you to tailor your output for different situations, it is a very powerful and very versatile Melee Specialization.

2. What has Changed?

  • Rage is now used predominantly to fuel Rampage Icon Rampage instead of being used as a limiting resource for most offensive abilities.
  • Enrage Icon Enrage now only lasts for 4 seconds, but grants a 100% increase to Attack Speed for the duration.
  • Raging Blow Icon Raging Blow is no longer limited by Enrage Icon Enrage activations, and can be used as many times as you wish whilst Enrage Icon Enraged.
  • Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind is now free so AoE is significantly less limited.
  • Meat Cleaver Icon Meat Cleaver now affects Rampage Icon Rampage and Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst.
  • Recklessness has been replaced with Battle Cry Icon Battle Cry on a much lower cooldown.

3. Strengths

  • Very high, frequent bursts of high damage.
  • Frequently available cooldown that has a large impact on output.
  • Can switch targets without any major downsides.
  • Cleave (5 or less targets) very strong due to Meat Cleaver Icon Meat Cleaver.
  • Exceptional burst AoE with  Icon Odyn's Fury.

4. Weaknesses

  • Can often be hindered by bad proc chains limiting Enrage Icon Enrage.
  • Large scale AoE limited by talents and cooldowns.

5. Viability in the Current Patch

In the Legion landscape Fury fares very well due to the high amount of multi target situations. In Mythic+, the power of  Icon Odyn's Fury really shines for burst AoE, and that can be pushed further with talents such as Bladestorm Icon Bladestorm to fill in the gaps. Alongside this Fury has a lot of versatile tools both in the base kit and in talents, which further pushes its strength. Finally, having the robust mobility toolkit Warriors already come with makes for a great all round specialisation.
