Improving DPS as Fury.

7 posts in this topic

Looking to improve as a fury warrior, my simmed dps is around 300k I believe, and I'm not reaching it. Not sure why not, but I think I'm usually around 220-240k dps on most fights, especially if it's a simple target dummy type fight like Malk or Blackfuse.




Logs: (This was a pretty messy attempt, if I remember rightly, even resulted in me jumping onto the belt to cover for a dead hunter,but it still stands.)


Following a standard rotation I believe, typical burst, aim for at least 2 raging blows and a stormbolt per CS, if no stormbolt then 3 raging blows.



Any suggestions? I feel like I don't have enough crit at the moment using AMR's standard weights, so altered them slightly to gain more crit.


P.S Anyone got a way to track internal trinket CD's? I'm struggling to find any weak aura strings for that.

if u can swap your chest for non set one and legs for t16 ones, chest is the worst of the set since it have no crit


your enrage uptime seems really low to me


you dont use all your raging blow charges (36 gained 33 casted)


I dont really see anything else

Yeah, looking into getting the Shaman's chest piece, and maybe swap the shoulders for Garrosh ones once we kill him. Anything I can do to improve enrage uptime? 


Raging blow charges I admit, I have failed with a bit, although now that I'm actively tracking more things using weakauras that should improve. Thank you for the help, however.

Sorry for the delay, midterms and stuff didn't give me enough free time this week (and I still won't be able to go through your logs just yet). 


Anlh did give you some good pointers though, so try and follow them the best you can.


Your gear looks fine, and you definitely have enough crit to perform well as fury.

Following a standard rotation I believe, typical burst, aim for at least 2 raging blows and a stormbolt per CS, if no stormbolt then 3 raging blows.


The part I underlined should not be there. You have the Galakras trinket, therefore you can use Stormbolt every single CS.


Don't have enough time to go deep in the logs tonight, but I'll check them out tomorrow.

I finally found the time to take a quick look at your logs. Seiegcrafter isn't an ideal fight to look at if you end up going on the belt, but it should still give you a decent idea of where you could improve.


1: You used 40 Bloodthirsts out of 82 possibilities. You definitely want to bring that number up. Both your enrage uptime and the number of RB charges you generate (which were both awfully low for your crit chance) depend on the amount of BTs you cast.


2: On a fight of the length of your Siegecrafter kill, 18 Colossus Smashes would have been expected, yet you only cast 14 CS. You also only cast 14 Stormbolts, which is at the same time good and bad. It's good, because you want to cast SB for every CS, which means having the same numbers of both casts is good, but it's also bad, because you had the possibility to cast 18 Stormbolts too, same thing as CS.


3: I can't really look at your CS phases on WoL (warcraftlogs allows me to do it, though, if you'Re interested), but by looking at your numbers of HS vs WS, it doesn't look too horrible.


Hope this helps, and sorry again for the delay,

Appreciate the help, and yeah, I definitely need to work on Bloodthirst then, as well as using CS/SB more. All I can say about it is at the moment, I still slip up occasionally and use Stormbolt at the wrong time and mess the timings up,although now I know it's more of a problem I can work to improve it.


Again, thank you for your help, It will help me greatly.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead |   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 4/8M Uldir   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website:
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   Ranged DPS:
      High: Warlock
      Medium: Mage, S.Priest, Boomkin
      1 Healer:
      High: MW Monk
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 370. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos!   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
