List of Fury Warrior Trainer Skills to Buy

Training spells can be rather expensive, especially if you try to learn every spell available to you. Here we will give you a list of your top-priority spells that you will want to train so you know which ones you can avoid and save some money.

  • Rend IconRend — You can stop training this spell after Rank 4 as you will stop using it after that.
  • Heroic Strike IconHeroic Strike & Cleave IconCleave — Both of these skills get very minor damage increases with each rank. You can hold off on training these skills if you are low on gold.
  • Charge IconCharge — The only benefit of increasing the rank of this spell is the increased Rage it generates. Only train this when you have excess gold as the few extra Rage points are generally not game changing.
