1. Basics

The stat priority for Fury Warrior is:

  1. Strength;
  2. Haste to 18%;
  3. Critical Strike to 30%;
  4. Mastery;
  5. Versatility;
  6. Haste;
  7. Critical Strike.

The Haste breakpoint is the point at which Haste begins to fall off as it doesn't impact the speed of Rampage Icon Rampage casts due to their fixed 1.5-second Global Cooldown. In the same vein, Critical Strike at 30% is the point at which Mastery begins to take over due to it directly benefitting from your Critical Strike rating.

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 has a fixed breakpoint of 18% for all gear at which point it can fall off compared to Critical Strike. Hitting this point however is important, regardless of Worldbreaker's Resolve Icon Worldbreaker's Resolve as it enhances ability usage during your Enrage Icon Enrage window.

1.4. Advanced Stats

When it comes to players using very high end Mythic Hellfire Citadel equipment, some stat interactions become more blurred. The Critical Strike breakpoint remains static, however, Haste past the breakpoint of 18% and Mastery increase at an equal rate until 25% Haste with Worldbreaker's Resolve Icon Worldbreaker's Resolve, at which point Mastery and Versatility take over.
