Quick question, what is it that happens at 11% haste that makes that the number to shoot for?

Apologies in advance if I am deadwrong.

Can you give us some more explanation why you recommend Enchant Gloves - Greater Haste and Enchant Bracer - Mastery over their strength versions. If you already are superclose to the haste breakpoint, wouldn't the strength enchants suite better?
 

In my case, I will be able to achive the haste breakpoint by putting in 2-3 haste/str gems to achive the breakpoint, so the haste enchant will be rubbish for me.

 

Would be nice if you atleast mentions the strength enchants and explain if and when to use them.

 

Other then that, great guide. keep it up! smile.png

There is no mention of Colossus Smash on the Fury Rotation page, since as you said, this ability has been removed. What are you referring to?

The Haste/Mastery enchants are simply better point for point. :)

 

Isn't Cata foods and flasks better now than their MOP equivalents? Compare inv_misc_food_meat_cooked_08.jpgBeer-Basted Crocolisk to inv_misc_food_cooked_golden_black_pepperBlack Pepper Ribs and Shrimp, that's 2 more STR, plus the STA bonus.

 

If I recall correctly, Blizzard indicated that this is not intentional, so I assume it has been or will be hotfixed soon. In any case, the difference is tiny.

It's so you can get two Bloodthirsts in before Enrage falls off.

Fury Changes   In order to make sure that you’re able to spend all of your resources within each Colossus Smash window, we added an extension to it onto Raging Blow. Plus, we've updated some to spell alerts to improve usability.

 

  • Raging Blow now extends the duration of Colossus Smash by 2 seconds, and has a spell alert on the left and right slots.
  • Glyph of Colossus Smash is a new glyph available to Fury Warriors. The glyph increases the duration of Colossus Smash's effect to 20 seconds, but reduces its effectiveness.

 

these are sentences about fury and colossus smash from last 6.0.2 update notes that's why I said ''after patch 6.0.2 warrior update , this guide especcialy rotation guide must be update becouse of colossus smash''

I'm not sure if you're aware, but fury no longer has access to Colossus Smash. That's why the guide has no mention of it.

I was wondering why the stat weight says 50% crit is our soft cap?

 

Namely, since BT now only gets 30% extra crit and not double, shouldn't it be around 70% buffed? Or are there some other mechanics that says 50% is better rather than just BT?

Yeah, was wondering about this too... Is it because we can easily fit 2 bloodthirsts in 1 enrage window?

There are a few points that i disagree with in the guide and if i am wrong I would love to know why. :)  This is mostly off the cuff theory craft that i did over lunch looking at my character and abilities in game. Will try to get damage meters working tonight to see if i can actually get numbers on a combat dummy.  My Character is Grogimer on Dragonblight that i am basing this on. 

 

On Tier 4 Talents:

Dragon roar is better for single and multiple targets unless it is against a boss or elite immune to stun. Even with the longer timer dragon roar does more damage to a single target and is a guaranteed crit. Currently looking at my character and storm bolt does less than half of the damage a dragon roar will on a normal elite target. And shockwave becomes a better choice than dragon roar as your cooldown is reduced. Right now i can get off 4 shock waves to 1 dragon roar as long as i am hitting 3 or more targets.

 

Second unquenchable thirst i believe is a better damage dealer for single target than furious strikes if you have your crit above 40%. Once you have this you are almost guarenteed for 100% uptime on enrage. 70%+ time you will follow a bloodthirst with a raging blow which is better damage than a wild strike. The other 30% will be a wild strike (this reduces as you get more crit and crit buffed) And the only time to priority over wild strike is if you are doing AOE or in a boss fight and you have storm bolt. (some may say i will be rage starved by using wild strike 30% of the time but last night i was killing elites on timeless isle and never noticed me running out. Will pay more attention this evening.)

 

Rage dumping is over. It is used for firing off an ability when you miss up to 2 crits with bloodthirst.If you miss 2 you should be firing off berserker rage or hitting bloodthirst again. which will give you raging blows.

 

Execute rotation. You have raging blow and wild strike in the rotation. In reality neither of those should be there as execution is better damage. You loose 20 rage each cycle of bloodthirst execute so depending on your auto attack rage  generation you may have to throw in another bloodthrist around number 6 execute. 

 

And i am out of time. :)  will post more later.

This is wrong. It was giving it to me at lunch time when i was farting around with it. And i checked the patch notes on the wow site and i don't see it. So unless they did it in the last hour it is still giving it.

1) This is untrue. Storm Bolt is a better spell right now in single target as long as the target in question in stunnable. Try simming it with the latest simc builds, Dragon Roar does not pull out ahead. Not very sure about shockwave, would hae to look into it, but the opportunity cost for all those GCDs would like be far too much to outweigh the damage it does.

 

2) Half untrue. After Sudden Death got nerfed back to 10% during patch day, people ran simulation in T16M BIS gear to see which talent was currently optimal. FS > SD > UQT on single target for TG, but for SMF SD is still > FS. I'll fix that.

 

3) Not wasting rage is still more important than enrage uptime. If you have zerker rage up, you shouldn't be losing enrage uptime in the first place, anyway.

 

4) Raging Blow is still better DPR than Execute, and as such still has a place in the execute rotation. Execute replaces Wild Strike as your primary rage dump, the only reason Wild Strike is included right now is when bloodsurge is proc'd, making it free. But even that's low on the priority list.

1.a. Still disagree on the stormbolt on stunable targets. And if the sim is showing it is better i would question the sim. Or I am missing something. I would attach screenshots of the tooltips of the abilities in game but can not right now. But you can get 2 stormbolts off in the time it takes to do 1 dragon roar. Without crit on either the stormbolts have less damage dealing on 2 uses than 1 dragon roar. After that  dragon roar is a guaranteed crit and bypasses armor. Damage on my toon for SB is 1216 and DR is 2670  

 

 

1.b. you are probably right on the missed cooldowns on shockwave but if you are looking at 3+ mobs i would really have to sit down and look at what i would be giving up in that same circumstance. 

 

 

 

Will reply to the rest as i get some time this evening. 

 

Just adding to this since it is the last one in the chain.

2.  You may be right. After going back through doing the numbers by hand with the rotation i have in mind i would only match the dps but would have rage issues. Will play it both ways over the next week and see. 

3. with enrage down i loose 45% of the damage i deal during that window because of mastery. So i will disagree that it is less important. However i can see your point as long as the enrage window is down for less than 3 seconds.

4. I will concede on. :)

Even then, that is haste, hast till 11% then crit to 70% makes more sense. Can someone verify this with sims?

1) On STUNNABLE targets, yea sure DR is better. But the amount of boss fights with stunnable targets are few and far between, and on the ones with them you'd go DR anyway.

2) Anecdotal evidence, is. Sim it for a definitive answer.

3) Right now we don't even have much downtime on enrage due to massive crit % in current gear, but in WOD we'll be unenraged all the time without much to do about it. If you're not near rage cap, you can always just sit on empty GCDs waiting for enrage, anyway.

Can you update your feedback on the new T16 Bonus', Since Colossus smash no longer exists, the 2pc set now increases bloodthirst damage by 10%, imo Bloodthirst doesn't hit very hard to begin with, making this of little use, however since it is a very frequent spell, is this worth gearing for? Also execute hits like a truck now, is it wise to gear for the 4pc now?

Why is sudden death execute procs 7 on the list of single target then written as highest priority at the bottom of that list?

      Valor Points are coming this week and are supposed to save/improve Mythic+ gearing but, as our own Seliathan goes into in-depth, it's not quite a good enough improvement on the already pretty messy Mythic+ loot system.
      Seliathan is an Icy Veins Rogue class guide writer, completed several World First Mythic+ clears, including the +20, and he wrote a big piece for Raider.IO, analyzing the M+ gear and the way the Valor Point system will affect it, the flaws in both, and how to improve them. And while Blizzard are removing the 1500 cap on Valor, exactly as the article suggests, there are many more problems and potential solutions presented there. He goes over many topics, including how M+ gearing compares to PvP and raiding, what the actual purpose of M+ is and where it fits in the overall gearing scheme, the lack of other rewards in M+, the need for higher Keystone Master-type achievement tiers and a lot more. Here are some highlights, but head straight on to the full (and huge) analysis post on Raider.IO if you want all the details:
      There's a LOT more to read over in the full article on Raider.IO, with many excellent points and insights into Mythic+ and how it could be improved, so make sure to read the whole thing!
    • By Staff
      We now have official confirmation that the 1500 held Valor cap has been removed! We recently had an in-depth look at the system and its flaws, and while this particular change will improve it significantly, there's still a lot of issues with Mythic+ gearing, so check out the full article here.
      Valor Cap (source)
      This is correct. There will not be a limit of 1500 Valor that can be held.
      I’ve put a strikethrough on that part of the OP.
    • By Stan
      Today, we’re looking at the most popular team compositions for Mythic+ in Shadowlands Season 1.
      Disclaimer
      The data used in this article comes from Benched.me, a website with a Composition Explorer function, which tells you the most-popular compositions for Mythic+. It has a search function that allows you to select specializations for each party slot and find compositions.
      The Most Popular Team Compositions for Mythic+ in Shadowlands Season 1
      Currently, the most popular team comp with 36,604 runs so far in Season 1 includes a Vengeance Demon Hunter (Tank), Restoration Shaman (Healer), Marksmanship Hunter (DPS), Balance Druid (DPS), and Fire Mage (DPS).
      In 2nd place, we have the exact same team composition, with just one change. The Restoration Shaman (Healer) is replaced with Holy Paladin. The composition has 21,852 runs.
      In 3rd place, we have the same composition, but the Healer got replaced with a Restoration Druid this time around. We've seen this composition in 17,546 runs.
      Based on the data, it is relatively safe to assume that the current Mythic+ meta revolves around a Vengeance Demon Hunter tank, Marksmanship Hunter + Balance Druid + Fire Mage (DPS), with healers rotating between Druid, Shaman, and Paladin.
      You can check out the table below for more information about the most popular comps, including Average/Max Keystone, cleared, and more. We encourage you to visit Benched.me for even more runs.

      Covenant Callings will reward Valor starting tomorrow, so make sure to save them until Patch 9.0.5 goes live in your region!

      Rare Covenant Callings in Patch 9.0.5 award 35 Valor. Epic Covenant Callings grant you 50 Valor.

      One character can hold up to 3 Covenant Callings at a time, which means you should wait until Tuesday (US) or Wednesday (EU) before you complete / turn in any Covenant Callings for extra Valor.
    • By Stan
      Blizzard is bringing back Valor in Patch 9.0.5, and the currency is used to upgrade Mythic Dungeon Gear, but what are the upgrade costs?
      The Red Rogue discovered the exact upgrade costs of gear with Valor in Patch 9.0.5 with a few missing slots, but before we go through them, let's talk about how the whole system works.
      Item Ranks and Upgrades
      Every item from dungeons in Patch 9.0.5 is given a rank based on their Item Level, as you can see on the tooltip.

      The items go from Rank 1 (Item Level 184) to Rank 12 (Item Level 220).
      This also applies to Great Vault loot. For example, if you receive Item Level 200 from the weekly chest, it will be of Rank 6/12.

      Base Mythic Gear (Item Level 184) can be upgraded to Item Level 200 without any requirements. All the higher rank upgrades are gated behind various achievements that require you to complete all Shadowlands Season 1 dungeons at Mythic Level 5, 10, and 15 within the time limit.
      In other words, if you want to upgrade Dungeon Gear to Item Level 220, you must complete all 8 Shadowlands Season 1 dungeons at Mythic 15 or above, within the time limit.
      We summarized everything explained above in the following table:
      Item Rank Item Level Requirements 1 184 No Requirements 2 187 No Requirements 3 190 No Requirements 4 194 No Requirements 5 197 No Requirements 6 200 No Requirements 7 203 Shadowlands Keystone Explorer: Season One 8 207 Shadowlands Keystone Explorer: Season One 9 210 Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror: Season One 10 213 Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror: Season One 11 216 Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One 12 220 Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One It's important to note that you can't upgrade gear obtained before Patch 9.0.5, which means you must re-farm everything when the patch goes live.
      Valor Caps
      You can have a maximum of 8,750 Valor, but the cap starts at 5,000 and increases by 750 each week. Blizzard also said one character could only hold 1,500 Valor at a time, but that may have been scrapped in the end.
      9.0.5 Week 1 Maximum Cap: 5,000 9.0.5 Week 2 Maximum Cap: 5,750 9.0.5 Week 3 Maximum Cap: 6,500 9.0.5 Week 4 Maximum Cap: 7,250 9.0.5 Week 5 Maximum Cap: 8,750 Weekly Cap: N/A Upgrade Costs
      Now that we know more about item ranks and caps, we are looking at how much Valor you will need for upgrades.
      All the data is provided by The Red Rogue, who also uploaded a handy video about the whole system. You can follow him on YouTube.
      You can upgrade gear by bringing it to Aggressor Zo'dash <Facilitator of Conflict> in Oribos, located in the Enclave of Oribos.
      The upgrade process is straightforward and works just like upgrading PvP or Covenant gear.
      The upgrade costs are different for each slot.
      Off-Hands, Rings, Cloaks, Bracers, Necks cost 250 Valor per upgrade. Shoulders, Gloves, Trinkets, Boots, Belts cost 400 Valor per upgrade. Helms, Chests, Legs cost 475 Valor per upgrade. 1-Handed Agility Weapon costs 500 Valor per upgrade 1-Handed Intellect Weapon costs 750 Valor per upgrade. 2-Handed Weapons cost 1,000 Valor per upgrade. The costs of 1-Handed Strength Weapons and Shields remain unknown for now, but based on PvP Upgrade costs, a 1H Weapon + Shield upgrades together should cost the same amount of Valor per upgrade just like a 2H weapon, so 500 Valor per item per upgrade (needs confirmation).
