Welcome to our Fury Warrior guide for Cataclysm Classic, tailored for PvE content. Here, you will learn how all you need to know to play Fury Warrior proficiently. Click the links below to navigate the guide or read this page for a short introduction.


Cataclysm Classic Fury Warrior Overview

Rather than using a single weapon, FuryFury chooses to wield a weapon in each hand. You can choose between Titan's Grip Icon Titan's Grip, which allows you to wield a 2-handed weapon in each hand, or Single-Minded Fury Icon Single-Minded Fury, which increases your damage dealt when wielding two 1-handed weapons instead. FuryFury has a very active playstyle, always having an ability ready to use. Unfortunately, this spec does not start off strong and requires very high end-game gear to fully unlock its potential.


Is Fury Warrior Viable in Cataclysm

FuryFury Warrior is an average DPS class in Cataclysm PvE content. Similar to previous expansions, FuryFury starts of very weak early on and scales up throughout the expansions lifespan, becoming fairly powerful towards the end. FuryFury Warrior is great in 10-man raid groups as it can cover numerous buffs and debuffs. That being said FuryFury is still a melee DPS with limited unique utility, making it unlikely that many groups will bring multiple DPS Warriors to a raid, especially when you can just play the much more powerful ArmsArms spec instead.

Best Races for Fury Warrior in Cataclysm

Alliance FuryFury Warriors best option is Worgens Worgen as Viciousness Icon Viciousness offers the most total stats, and Darkflight Icon Darkflight gives you movement speed utility. Human Humans are decent second choice as they offer Mace Specialization Icon Mace Specialization and Sword Specialization Icon Sword Specialization, which gives 3 Expertise whenever you are using a Sword or Mace. They will also have access to Will to Survive Icon Will to Survive, which is one of the best racials in the game for PvP content.

Horde FuryFury Warriors have a few contenders for the best race. Goblin Goblins are a strong choice, offering Time is Money Icon Time is Money, Rocket Jump Icon Rocket Jump and Rocket Barrage Icon Rocket Barrage. Orc Orcs remain a solid choice as well, offering Axe Specialization Icon Axe Specialization and Blood Fury Icon Blood Fury. Both choices are very close with Goblin Goblin being better overall.


Best Professions for Fury Warrior

Cataclysm balances most professions to be an equal amount of bonus stats, with most professions giving an average of 80 stats increase. That being said, there are always certain advantages and disadvantages to each profession, making certain professions slightly stronger than others.

  1. Engineering Icon Engineering — Engineering remains the best in slot profession thanks to the new tinker Synapse Springs Icon Synapse Springs. Grounded Plasma Shield Icon Grounded Plasma Shield, another new tinker, is a decent on use defensive shield that can save your life. Nitro Boosts Icon Nitro Boosts remain a solid option for movement speed bursts during fights.
  2. Blacksmithing Icon Blacksmithing — Allows you to add an additional socket to your gloves and bracers with Socket Gloves Icon Socket Gloves and Socket Bracer Icon Socket Bracer. While this is about the same stats gain as most other professions early on, once epic gems are introduced this profession becomes much stronger.
