Fury warrior, please help.

I need to signifigantly improve my DPS, but I'm not sure how I can do this. In the past few weeks, I've not changed anything apart from equipment but I've felt a DPS loss, or just no gain at all. 


SimCraft says I should be doing about 24k in my current form, but I can't seem to break ahead of 18k, or the odd 20k.


When beginning a fight I usually charge in, blood thirst, execute if I can, raging blow if enraged, if not pop berserker rage and go from there. I dump my rage into wild strike if I'm enraged, but conserve it if not. Or try to.


Any suggestions, assistance would be helpful.




Logs (I think):

Hey man, I looked at your logs and your Enrage uptime is only 37%. What this means is:

A. 63% of the time your attacks aren't doing 10% extra damage

B. Raging Blow procs


So then I took a look at your stats and you're only at 13% crit which means when your bloodthirst only has a 53% chance of enraging you (assuming no mark of the thunderlord(s), skull of war, or tectus trinket proc).


From what I can tell, your biggest problem is not having enough crit. You want at least 20% crit (to have stable enrage uptime.


Here's my armory to get a good idea of what your stats should look like:


TL;DR Get more crit

Thanks, Sven. Do you think it would be worth it to go back and replace some of the Highmaul epics with 630 Heroics gear for the Critical Strike?

Thanks, Sven. Do you think it would be worth it to go back and replace some of the Highmaul epics with 630 Heroics gear for the Critical Strike?


No, as the higher STR on the highmaul epics outweighs the crit from the 630 gear.


Right now, our BIS gear from highmaul does not contain enough crit. With full 670 BIS gear (assuming no sockets or warforged) your crit is only around 15%.


Luckily I've gotten a lot of prismatic sockets for crit gems, so my crit is at 21%.


In my opinion the best thing you can do is pick up Arms as your offspec as Arms does significantly more damage on Tectus, Brackenspore, and Twin Ogron thanks to Arms's cleave/AOE output. I also use Arms on imperator, but fury is about the same for imperator.


As you can tell on this warcraftlogs link ( Fury warriors perform better on the single target fights (Kargath, Butcher, Ko'ragh), Arms performs better on the AOE/cleave fights (Tectus, Bracken, Twins), and both are generally the same for imperator.

Update. Went Arms, at Sven's suggestion and much as I wanted to stay Fury, for Imperator and my DPS jumped up by 5k.

Thanks, Sven!

You're welcome! I wouldn't give up on Fury in the future, Fury tends to be not so good at the beginning of an xpac and then amazing towards the end (like in MOP)

      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration

      Hello there!

      <Shadow> on Argent Dawn has been going since 2009. We are a close-knit community and strongly believe in recruiting people who will fit in with us rather than just whoever is topping the meters. We also believe that having a busy RL life with job/family/social commitments and committing to Mythic raiding as a hobby we're all passionate about are not mutually exclusive. We are looking to bolster our line-up to push for Cutting Edge in Antorus.

      About us
      We progress raid Thursdays and Sundays, 20:00-23:00 and 19:30-22:30 respectively (all times server time)
      We have a non-mandatory farm raid Fridays at 20:30 that socials and alts are welcome to
      We use Discord for voice communication and have an active server to hang out, chat, and organise M+ runs
      We maintain a mature environment - having a laugh is great, but bullying, endless meme-spamming and the like are not welcome
      We believe in learning from your mistakes - you will never be yelled at, but you will be asked whether you know what you did wrong and how you can fix it

      What we expect from recruits
      Sign up to raids ahead of time and give us a heads-up in case of longer absences
      Be there 15 minutes before raid start and bring your own consumables as back-up to feasts and cauldrons
      Do your homework - research encounters thoroughly and understand them
      Understand and know how to play your class
      Have Discord installed and a working microphone, ready to speak when required but without cluttering up comms with chatter
      You don't need to grind to the point of burn-out, but keep up with AP traits and do M+ to hone your skills and supplement your gear
      Be a team player and bring a positive attitude. Wipes happen in Mythic. Constructive feedback is great, backseat raid leading is not.

      What we are currently looking for

      A rule that applies to all potential recruits is: We do not recruit for the bench, but we will always take the team that is most likely to defeat the boss and cannot promise everyone they will always be in for every fight. When things are equal in terms of performance and required composition, we much prefer to rotate people in and out over benching someone for an entire night.
      One Healer - Paladin preferred, but any class that isn't priest will be considered
      One Tank - Bear, Brewmaster or Blood DK
      Melee DPS - got one spot for a Rogue
      Ranged DPS - Boomkins, Shadow Priests, Warlocks and Hunters

      If this sounds like the guild for you, check us out at or contact the Co-GMs Alec#2922 and NevNev#2669 for more info!

      See you in Antorus!
