Fury Warrior Level-by-Level Rotation, Talents, and Trainer Skills

FuryFury is not terrible for leveling, but it falls behind in speed compared to ArmsArms Warrior leveling speeds. It is also a bit harder to gear for, as you need two 2-handed weapons and need Hit Rating much more. If you are interested in the fastest solo leveling experience, check out our ArmsArms Warrior Leveling Guide.
