Fury Warrior- Weapon usage/handage

4 posts in this topic

I've been troubled over some in game abilities vs what people tell me, and i'm seeking a definite answer to my trouble. People tell me to use my better weapon in my main hand, and my worse weapon in my offhand, however I have a few objections to this meta. One objection being how in the description of [Crazed Berserker] "Your off-hand weapon damage is increased by 25% with two-handed weapons and by 50% with one-handed weapons". This bit of the ability begs me to question if it's better to use your better weapon in your offhand. My other objection is based off the talent [Furious Strikes] from which I use. Since this talent reduces rage required for [Wild Strike], and [Wild Strike] is a quick strike with your off-hand weapon, would having my better weapon in my off-hand be more viable to this talent choice? Any valid help would be appreciated! Below is my personal armory if my set/stats affect the decision.

I believe this question has come up before in other posts. Regardless of simulation results or theoretical situations - I simply tell everyone Fury Warrior I see to put their best weapon in the MH slot; the one that hits the hardest. Simulations may show that putting your strongest weapon in your OH slot could potentially yield anywhere from 50 - 200 more DPS but that's it; you won't see a substantial increase to really merit the decision.

 

If you want an absolute answer for yourself - sim yourself with both options. Sim yourself once, switch your weapons, sim yourself again and gauge your results accordingly.

 

Either way, as stated above, I simply tell warriors to put their strongest weapon in their MH slot. It's just easier that way and, more often times than not, better.

I believe the ideal scenario would be to have the better weapon in the OH pre execute phase, and use 1 GCD to swap weapons to have the better weapon MH for executes.

 

Or like Sajakain said (and I agree with) just roll with it in the MH knowing full well the difference in DPS is miniscule.  The tiniest bit of RNG will have more of an impact.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      Hi, so I'd like to think that have got the fury rotation down, I've been using the Icy veins guide and some pointers from MMO-Champion. I don't think I have any big issues apart from the BC with CoF trinket, like if it's worth waiting for other cooldowns like OF to be up with BC, that's my main question. 
      So I have linked my logs for some PuG raiding the other week, so if someone is up for the task of analyzing them for me, that'd be great. Sorry if my sentences are wrong or weird, I'm really hungover...

      ( In Goroth Normal, you will see some downtime in the middle of the fight. I got disconnected that is the answer:/ )
