Fury on the beta

Hi Folks,


I wanted to wade in on the Heroic Strike / Fury debate....e.g. it being removed from the spec in WoD. I didn't see a thread here on IV- apologies if I missed it.


I was agreeing with the general angry mob that this was going to over simplify the spec and had also heard that there were issues in over capping rage. I wanted to see if this held true, so I rolled a warrior on the Beta.


Happy to say that I thought it played very well- dare I say better than ever.


I had no issue with rage capping....Wild Strike, with its .5 second GCD, was allowing me to dump a ton of rage on command. I was playing with the talent Furious Strikes also, which drops the rage cost to 20. Even so, no problems in that regard. It was actually a ton of fun also...the ability really lives up to its tool tip. 


I also felt that the class has not lost complexity. Raging Blow now adds two seconds to the active Colossus Smash, so balancing this with Wild Strike and Bloodthirst seems to make the rotation seem more varied and interesting. Also, maybe its just me, but in live I just mash Heroic Strike during Colossus Smash. That feels less skilful compared to a considered use of Wild Strike whilst trying lengthen the Colossus Smash Window as much as possible. I think there's also a glyph to remove the cool down from Bloodthirst. Very interested to see how this all works out.


Admittedly I'm not the most experienced of Warriors, but I think the spec is in a very good place (for now). I feel that the ability pruning has worked very well in this case.


AOE also felt good. Not sure if this is final (need to check) but Whirlwind was giving 2 stacks of Meat Cleaver each time, stacking up nicely to a 4 way cleave of Raging Blow.

I'd love to give insight to how the Warriors are playing on Beta. Unfortunately, though, Blizzard has yet to grace me with a Beta Key and I've seem to have lost all entries made thus far.


With the cinematic and release date around the corner I feel that I may end up waiting until live to get any legwork in on seeing what they've done to the class.


I'm glad you made the post, though. It's good to read what others are experiencing and it seems Blizz is even taking note with the many changes they've made so far to them.

Enhanced whirlwind.....definitely like it. Makes the AOE rotation more viable for adds that go down fast smile.png


Can't seem to find the ability that allows for turbo Wild Strikes...must be in there somewhere...

      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.

      Hello fellow warriors. I'm looking for some input on my DPS and my issues with it. I currently sim 1.8m on Raidbots, but I'm only able to pull 1.2-1.3m consistently. I feel like I have a good grasp on the rotation: 100Rage Rampage > BT > RB/FS > RB/FS > BT > Rampage. I pop my CDs (all 3) either before my first Rampage or right after I use Rampage for two Rampage in a row. Odyn's Fury comes right after my Rampages with Battle Cry. 
      I finally got my Pantheon trinket last week and it killed my haste. It's down to 20% from 25%, which didn't make my DPS drop (it went up 100-300k). I have my 4 piece and BiS Leggos. I plan on TRYING to replace my belt with a Haste one (if I can get one to drop). 
      Here are my character's logs:
      I don't have an updated raid to go on since I forgot to log my last Normal.

      So, my guild and me are trying Eonar mythic, and I feel like I can deal more aoe dps.
      Here is gear that I am currently using, and I also have these in my bags:

      And here some logs of the fight.
      So, what can I do to improve? Any tips and tricks would really help.
