Fury DPS

Recommended Posts

Hello killerplanet, I posted this today in the other two Fury help threads. Hopefully this relates to your situation.


Hey there,

I've been maining Fury this xpac, and in previous xpacs I mained Prot and off-spec'd Fury. I am the type of player that enjoys researching how to play my class and spec most efficiently, and from what I have gathered the rotation below outputs the highest DPS. I use this rotation and I manage to perform within the top percentile on fights like Ursoc.

Opener Rotation: Charge > Avatar + Dragon Roar > Battlecry + Bloodthirst > Raging Blow > Odyn's Fury > Bloodthirst > Raging Blow

In this single target scenario, you do not want to use Rampage. Rampage forces a 1.5 second GCD and prevents you from fitting in the extra GCD within your Battlecry window. Keep in mind that most of the time you won't manage to pull this off unless you macro Battlecry + Bloodthirst, have low latency and have high enough haste, so it may be better to throw Rampage in the end instead of Raging Blow if you do not have enough haste and didn't Enrage from the Bloodthirst. From this point, you will continue your single target rotation until Dragon Roar comes up (25 second CD). Your CD rotation should appear as follows:

1st CD rotation - Avatar + Dragon Roar > Battle Cry + Bloodthirst > Odyn's Fury
2nd CD rotation - Dragon Roar
3rd CD rotation - Dragon Roar > Battle Cry + Bloodthirst > Odyn's Fury
4th CD rotation - Dragon Roar (Avatar will be up at this time, but save it to sync with Battle Cry)
Rotation starts over (see "1st CD Rotation")

A quick rotation recap: Avatar + DR > BC + BT > RB > OF > BT > RB

The reason behind using Raging Blow first is to fit in the extra Raging Blow before the end of Battle Cry. If you were to use Odyn's Fury first, you would follow up with Raging Blow, then Bloodthirst, and then have to hit Furious Slash because everything else is on cooldown. You do not want to have to hit Furious Slash. It is a DPS loss and only used as a filler when nothing else can be used. Also, it should never be used twice (you won't ever have to).

I recommend macro'ing Avatar & Dragon Roar, as you will only be hitting Avatar with Dragon Roar anyways. Also, you can try macro'ing Battle Cry with Bloodthirst. All of this ensures that you sync the GCDs up as close as possible to minimize lag and reduce the amount of haste you need as a result. Remember to avoid Rampage during Battle Cry as it forces a fixed 1.5 second GCD that cannot be reduced by haste.

I did not check your logs because I am on a crappy connection at the time of writing, but ensure that you are using the Massacre talent for your execute phase. Icy-Veins explains the rotation effectively in the Fury guide. Once you have the artifact traits that synergize with this talent it becomes quite powerful.

The thing you really need to work with is your battlecry usage:

As it is right now from what i see your logs you are using it extremely inefficiently:

  1. Use Dragon Roar before you use Battle Cry, on multiple occasions you use it in the middle of it or at the end
  2. On multiple occasions you use your Odyn's Fury outside of Battle Cry - time them together
  3. During a couple of your Battle cries you only manage to fit 3 skills into it- might be because you are using battle cry to early (as in during a GCD).

On a side note, you use Bloodthirst too much during execute phase. It should only be used if you have rage problems only raging blow should be used on cd. From what i see you are using bloodthirst even while being above 50-60 rage which also causes your execute phase dps to take a nosedive.
