Do you have a recommended 13-trait path for Fury as an alt spec? I main as a prot warrior but I'd like to have a DPS spec as backup.

I would recommend just following the path listed, especially since you will reach a point where Artifact Knowledge allows you to plough through a full trait in 1 AP item.

1. Is Raging Blow used over every other spell no matter what, I've notice through logs that my usage is down from other Fury warriors,      but I've been casting Rampage on CD when not already Enraged over Raging Blow. Is this correct, or should I Raging Blow then Rampage so that Raging Blow comes off CD during the Enraged created by Rampage.

You will prioritise using Rampage over RB. You are correct.

2 . There has been a few time when Bloodthirst has proc Enrage about 4 times in a row which keeps my rage bar at 100% all the time through Enraged. Should I cast a rampage at 100% no matter what to start building rage again or let it sit  until Enraged has finished so I can then go straight back into an Enraged State.

If you are at 100 rage, you pop Rampage immediately. Wasted rage is a big issue for DPS.

I seek weakauras for the warrior fury 7.1

If you need WAs, I would recommend going to wago.io. It has a huge amount of WAs that you can use.

Is there any change to get a Trinket BiS list which is much more detailed than this list. Last addon the list was much more better, because the linked function?

What do you mean? The list that we have currently shows a comparison between every trinket at 860, as well as giving an idea on numerical differences rather than a simple list of 1,2,3,4.

So I recently came across a Mythic 7 Titanforge Hunger of the Pack 870, my current alternative trinkets are 850 chrono shard and 855 Momento of Angerboda. I do have the Eye of command at 865 that I believe is currently not in the rotation to be swapped given my 3 examples. I ran a few dummy tests and the 870 came out on top with a much higher crit rating across he board, obviously. I know there is a trinket sim list, due to drastic ilvl difference is there anyway to tell which is better. 

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/sargeras/Buzzbrah/simple

im also currently using Noxxic Pawn, I probably should change it. Any advice is welcome.

Bit late here, but Pawn sucks for trinkets. SimulationCraft is the most reliable way to compare them, honestly. Just swap the trinkets in different sims and find the best combo.

Hello, so i have a question about the Fury Warrior rotation.

If Bloodthirst has a 1 second cd and Raging blow is up should i use it or wait to cast Bloodthirst first ? ( and if it has 2 sec cd and Raging blow is up should i still wait ?)

And if Odyn's Fury is up and Battle cry is on a 10 seconds cd should i also use it or wait to cast Battle cry first ? ( and if it has 20 sec cd should i also wait? )

And what about if Dragon roar is on cd and Odyn's fury is up how many seconds should i wait ?

Thanks.

You should be using Raging Blow on CD regardless, you will get a cast if Bloodthirst triggers Enrage regardless, but if you wait could potentially delay a cast.

Odyn's Fury should always be synced with Battle Cry due to the crit and the additional damage dealt during Battle Cry from the artifact, so delaying is ideal.

Dragon's Roar should ideally be delayed slightly if it will not be ready for the next BC/OF combo to stop the situation you mentioned happening, as you do not want to delay either BC or OF.

The stat priority is correct, it was a typo on my part when importing the template for the page layout, I've corrected this and should hopefully be changed asap, just the intro lingering, so my apologies.

Hey, this is a great guide. It helped me a lot. Thank you for your time putting it together.
I have two questions:

1. Is this guide still relevant in the current patch? There weren't any big changes, just wanted to double check.

2. When I cast Rampage and get Enrage, should I wait casting Bloodthirst until after the Enrage expires? This way the potential crit from BT doesn't overwrite the Enrage from Rampage. However, wouldn't that be loss of rage that I could get out of keeping BT on cooldown?

Thank you again for this guide, it is very well put together and organized.

It should be, yes! Wordup does a great job keeping things up to date, so I would say you can rely on everything here :)

This is covered in the ST-Rotation list. Take a look at where points 3 and 8 are.

The guides are currently being updated for 7.1.5! I just wanted to leave a few notes for all of our users that might be getting ready to leave a comment:

  • Some pages do not require updates. The "Last Updated" stat does not mean the page is out of date, it might just not have needed any changes. If you feel that it does, leave a comment telling us what needs changing and why.
  • The process will not happen immediately - some guides will be updated faster than others simply due to the number of resources available. Be patient, they'll be ready when you need them!
  • There might be some continuity errors when making small adjustments to large guide pages. If you do find one of these, just let us know in the comments and we'll get it fixed ASAP.
  • "Why have you not taken into account X buff to X ability?" - remember, just because something got buffed, it doesn't mean it is now automatically better than the other options!

As always, we want to thank you all for being patient while we get things updated and I'm always available to help you all if you need it :)

Good morning and happy Patch Day!

I was hoping to get some opinions/reasoning behind a couple of the changes to the Talent Guide. Specifically the promotion of Frothing Berserker/Reckless Abandon as the preferred talents in their respective tiers. 

 

The combination does synergize well. I get that. But here are the benefits for this combo: 15% increased damage for 6 sec and 100% crit chance for 7 sec every 60 seconds (that's a little less than 12% uptime on this burst window). Aside from stats, it's an instant burst window without any effort of lining things up (just have to use Battle Cry).

 

The opposing choice, keeping Dragon Roar and Massacre/Carnage. This results in: 16% increased damage for 6 sec (essentially the same buff as Frothing Berserker) but occurs every 25 sec (24% uptime), and back down to 5 sec Battle Cry window (8.5% uptime on 60 sec CD). And the benefits of either Carnage or Massacre, depending on your build preference.

 

Just on paper, Dragon Roar still seems a significantly better burst option than Frothing Berserker due to it's drastically higher uptime. Lining up windows with Dragon Roar & Battle Cry is not difficult since it's off the GCD and can just be macroed with something. The additional 2 sec of Battle Cry does ensure 1 or 2 additional attacks, which would increase Enrage uptime if you get in an additional Bloodthirst. But I'm not seeing how that offsets the benefits of Massacre or Carnage.

 

That's assuming no specific legendaries or set bonuses. I think the gap becomes even greater with T19 bonuses. With the 4pc bumping Enrage to 5.5 sec, I would think Carnage becomes extremely powerful. Gaining 70 rage every 5.5-6 sec is not that difficult, which would result in near 100% Enrage uptime. Since maximizing Enrage uptime is the core purpose of the spec, I would imagine that would be the premier choice. 

 

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

Frothing Berserker uptime is somewhere in the region of 50-60% depending on optimisation which puts it at a massive advantage over Massacre on top of being more consistent by not leaning too heavily into the Execute window. When it comes to Reckless Abandon vs. Dragon Roar, Reckless Abandon has no global cooldown commitment.

Comparing Dragon Roar to Frothing Berserker seems like a moot point given they are on separate tiers and as such have different things to compete against, but I assume here you meant to say Reckless Abandon. The benefit of the instant on demand Rage coupled with how strong Battle Cry is as a cooldown (also bearing in mind that Battle Cry is generally assumed at a 50 second cooldown and not 60 when discussing things here due to the artifact) and that it will guarantee Frothing Berserker to be active when going into a window can't be understanded.

Dragon Roar on the other hand doesn't do this, requires a Global Cooldown and prior Rage setup beforehand to capitalise upon whilst only really interacting with Battle Cry itself, the use in between is not really as valuable. Last but not least, remember as well that 2 additional seconds of Battle Cry is 2 additional seconds of Unrivaled Strength being active (15% more damage under Battle Cry) to go with those swings, that Dragon Roar will not have. The difference in simulations between both of these talents is somewhere in the region of 5-10% from what I can discern, which is a massive gap when considering these two talent choices.

When it comes to inserting the 4pc, Carnage again loses out because increasing the duration of Enrage increases the duration of time you are attacking faster, building up Rage generation and getting back to 100 to refresh Frothing Berserker, which again has a big impact comparative to Carnage.

Hi, I just have a question regarding the Fury rotation with the Frothing/Reckless Abandon build. Do you always cap 100 rage to proc FB and then spend to maximize the uptime? I just dont want to misunterstand they playstyle. Thank you for your reponse.

Hello, 

Very good guide, thanks for putting your time into it. 

In the stat priority list crit ranks lowest. You don't recommend some crit to prevent enrage downtime? 

And crit also increases the viability of the massacre talent, even though we get a bit of crit on execute through the artifact tree.

so with frosting berserker should i bother using execute even when enraged? it would delay reaching 100 rage faster and getting damage buff. also if i would try to keep juggernaut stacks up w/o masacre enrage uptime would be really low as well right?

Hey everyone and happy patch day,

does anyone know about new stats priority weight after reworking secondary stats? Is there any theory crafting avialable? It cant stay the same since we need more secondary stat to get 1 point of rating. Strength should be in charge. But i would like to know some approximate numbers. 

I dont speak about stat priority ofc. Its still the same. Previous item without haste was worse then 15ilvl lower item with haste on it.

 

Thank you in advance for your reply

Yeah, you will always push for 100 before spending.

No, because Haste is basically just more reliable Crit. To put it into an example, you could have 30% crit and, technically, never crit Bloodthirst, ever. It's possible.

30% Haste on the other hand will benefit every second of your gameplay, since it is 100% reliable rage generation for every point you have. Crit just isn't worth it since the introduction of Rampage.

You can execute when enraged during your "spend" phase, if you're not using Massacre.

      Where Is My Bee Mount? New Timewalking Raid: Firelands
      When Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form raid groups and enter the Sulfuron Spire once more. As with previous Timewalking raids (Black Temple, Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.
      Party Sync
      Blizzard is experimenting with a new mode in the forthcoming patch that makes it easier for players in a party to do quests and play together: Party Sync. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state, including phases. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who is on the quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn in the quest. There’s something else we’re going to try out on the PTR, a “replay” quest feature. This will allow players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest.
      They're also relaxing level restrictions on queueing for instanced content with your friends. This allows lower-level players to queue for content in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down while they’re in the instance. This feature will be available for dungeon instances for PTR Week 1, with PvP instances being flagged in the following weeks. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled down via Party Sync you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite traits) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.
      Party Sync Detailed Recruit A Friend Returns
      Coming in 8.2.5 is a revamped Recruit A Friend system. If you have active game time you’ll be able to recruit your friends—both brand-new to the game and returning champions—to share in your adventures. To do so, you’ll be able to use a new URL generation tool to create a custom link to give to your friends. By following the link, you’ll be connected to each other and will be able to see if they have purchased game time, resulting in rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward such as unique pets, mounts, game time and more. These rewards unlock per month and scale with how many months your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters. We’ll have more information about Recruit A Friend rewards before 8.2.5 release.
