1. Basics

The stat priority for Fury Warrior is:

  1. Strength;
  2. Haste to 50%;
  3. Mastery;
  4. Versatility;
  5. Critical Strike;
  6. Haste past 50%.

The actual breakpoint for Haste at 50% is still being researched as to the cause. The running theory however is linked to the bonus Global Cooldown reduction that can push it beneath 1 second during large Haste cooldowns. This makes Haste the absolute go to stat for Fury at all times.

1.1. Getting a Better Understanding

1.2. Statistics

Strength is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.

Critical Strike provides additional damage to your attacks and abilities, and also increases the chance to activate Enrage Icon Enrage through Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst uses.

Mastery increases the damage bonus provided by Mastery: Unshackled Fury Icon Mastery: Unshackled Fury boosting all damage dealt while Enrage Icon Enrage is active.

Haste grants a number of different benefits, increasing the auto-attack speed, reducing the Global Cooldown recovery time, reducing the base cooldown of Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst and Raging Blow Icon Raging Blow, and accelerating the channel time of Bladestorm Icon Bladestorm. The reduced cooldown on Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst by extension also increases chances to activate Enrage Icon Enrage, however do note that Rampage Icon Rampage has a fixed 1.5-second Global Cooldown, which is not accelerated by Haste.

Versatility provides a flat damage dealt boost and damage taken reduction.

1.3. Breakpoints

Haste remains the most valuable up until 50%. Whilst this value is realistically unreachable in current gear, it should be kept in mind that if you happen to ever get there, it will start to drop off. This excludes short term buffs such as War Machine Icon War Machine and Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism.

1.4. Advanced Stats

Whilst it is always recommended to reach these breakpoints, do note that these stat values are not always a hard rule. Stats are relatively close to each other which ensures more gear you acquire is a viable choice, so make your decisions wisely based on other pieces available.
