Fury Warrior Phase 1 / Tier 4 Best in Slot Gear

In this guide we go over the different gear available for Fury Warriors in Phase One of TBC ((Karazhan, Gruul's Lair, and Magtheridon's Lair). We will offer multiple different pieces as some can be rather expensive or very rare to find. Some slots have multiple "best" items that can change depending on your current gear and Hit Rating needs.

Other Fury Warrior Best in Slot Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Fury Warrior, our pre-raid best in slot list is meant to give you an idea of non-raid items you can chase as a solo / pug player in preparation for raids.

Do note that items from Heroic dungeons or that require Primal Nether Icon Primal Nethers (which are obtained from Heroics) can be harder to get than raid items due to their daily lockout. Some Heroic dungeons are also harder than most of Karazhan.

If, however, your character is ready to take on the content of Tiers 5 and 6, then please utilize our updated lists instead.

Option Malefic Mask of the Shadows Icon Malefic Mask of the Shadows no sockets High King MaulgarGruul's Lair

Adamantine Chain of the Unbroken Icon Adamantine Chain of the Unbroken edges ahead slightly over the other choices as it offers Fury Warriors much-needed Critical Strike chance. Choker of Vile Intent Icon Choker of Vile Intent still remains a great option if you are lacking hit rating.

Ripfiend Shoulderplates Icon Ripfiend Shoulderplates remain your best shoulder option, but are difficult to acquire.

Black-Iron Battlecloak Icon Black-Iron Battlecloak is still your BiS cloak, but it is very hard to get, as it drops from a world boss. Vengeance Wrap Icon Vengeance Wrap remains a solid option, with Cloak of the Pit Stalker Icon Cloak of the Pit Stalker being similar stats but having some Stamina.

Scaled Greaves of the Marksman Icon Scaled Greaves of the Marksman remain the best, but are still very rare. Skulker's Greaves Icon Skulker's Greaves are a great option, or even Warbringer Greaves Icon Warbringer Greaves to get the 4-set bonus, which is decent in early gear.
