Fury Warrior Help

11 posts in this topic

Hi All,


After some advice and help.  


I have recently started playing WOW again after a 2 year break from the game. 


I have decide to make my mains my warrior Fury and Prot Spec and my Shammy Enhancement and Resto Spec.


I have having trouble reaching any kind of decent DPS in Raids at the moment to the point where i am feeling guilty i am letting the raid down. 


my rotation at present is as follows


Without Colossus Smash.



Heroic Strike



Berzerker rage

Raging Blow

Heroic Throw



With Colossus smash


Heroic Strike 


Raging blow

Wild strike



Is this how I should be attacking?


I seem to have problems getting my Raging BLow and Wild Strike to pop to i am getting out DPS'd by Arms warriors in greens at the moment



I have included a link to my armory page i am hoping that it is just my terrible gear that is letting my DPS down. 







Please help if you can.

At the moment, your gear is really bad. You're way over hits and expertise caps, your gear is not gemmed, enchanted or reforged, and it's probably as badly itemized as it can. I would suggest you either a) get better itemized pieces (You need *a lot* more crit) or b) play arms until you get better gear. As far as enchanting, reforging and gemming goes, I would suggest askmrrobot.com.


On top of that, it doesn't seem you have the rotation quite right. The Fury warrior rotation guide here on Icy-Veins is very thorough and detailed, you should take the time to read it, and come back here if you have any specific questions about the rotation.

well first

  1. Hit Rating (until 7.5%);
  2. Expertise Rating Rating (until 7.5%);

not 10% and 15%. not enchanted or reforged. im guessing you are holding off tell you get way better gear. as for the rotation i would suggest going arms tell you can gear up better the rotation is simple and easy. yes fury does more dps but the rotation is hard to master.at least untell you get better geared

Hi Ragebarr, Hi ClaytonMckown,


Thanks for the replies. I think i am going to give Arms a go for a while and see how i go. I know i need heaps better gear and after being out of WOW for 2 years i am miles behind where i would like to be. 


I'll reforge some of my gear, and gem and enchant according to askmrrobot. 


It's been a struggle finding people that will tell you anything i came back after 2 years and my level 25 guild has 2 people left in it and my server is dead. I'll be transfering servers later this month. 


thanks for the advice I'll keep you posted.

Yeah that's what i was thinking great time to come back. 


I have been reading the Arms rotation. 


  1. Use your wow_icon_ability_warrior_battleshout.jpg Battle Shout or wow_icon_ability_warrior_rallyingcry.jpg Commanding Shout and your potion (3 seconds before the pull).
  2. Begin casting wow_icon_ability_warrior_shatteringthrow Shattering Throw (1.5 seconds before the pull).
  3. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_charge.jpg Charge.
  4. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_savageblow.jpg Mortal Strike.
  5. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_dragonroar.jpg Dragon Roarwow_icon_ability_warrior_bloodbath.jpg Bloodbath, and wow_icon_warrior_skullbanner.jpg Skull Banner (also use wow_icon_trade_engineering.jpg Synapse Springs and your DPS-increasing racial ability, if applicable).
  6. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_colossussmash.j Colossus Smash and wow_icon_ability_criticalstrike.jpg Recklessness.
  7. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_decisivestrike. Slam.
  8. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_savageblow.jpg Mortal Strike.
  9. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_decisivestrike. Slam.
  10. Use wow_icon_ability_warrior_decisivestrike. Slam.


Now this is going to seem stupid but what i am guessing from this is when i charge in at the start of the boss fight 




i hit mortal strike pop all the cooldowns i have hit colossus smash hit slam mortal strike and them slam slam and then do i just rinse and repeat?

Gear looks much better. If you can't afford Dancing Steel on your weapon, take windsong at least.


The rotation part you just linked is the opening rotation only. It only represent the first few seconds of a pull. The actual rotation is in sections 1.1 and 1.2 of the Arms guide. (The one you copied there is 5.2 if i recall correctly)

You actually got that backwards. When CS is up on your target, Mortal Strike > Slam > Overpower. When CS isn't up: Mortal Strike > Colossus Smash > Slam (If and only if you have 80+ rage) > Overpower > Slam

      Hi everyone! This is my first time playing endgame content, thanks to some veteran friends who invited me to play with them. I started with a Fury Warrior, and now that I feel comfortable, I started logging the runs. 

      Here is a part of Antorus Normal ( I accidentaly deleted the file later which included the rest of the bosses :( ) 

      Would anyone please take a look at it to see where I have room for improvement (probably everything) and how can I tackle those issues?

      PD: Im lacking one of the BiS leggos, and ever since I have the Convergance of Fates trinket, I lost my rotation, cant seem to find when to fire each ability now.

      <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.
