Table of Contents

This section is intended for players who are new to the game or class, have no intentions of raiding Mythic difficulty, or simply want a more straightforward way to play their specialization without being overwhelmed by the numerous priorities and active abilities that need to be taken into consideration for optimal play.

1. The Basics of Fury Warrior

Fury as a specialization is very fluid, focused entirely around the flow of your Rage status and buffs/abilities currently available. In many cases some of the more raid oriented talents are not strictly more complicated, but instead play into more fringe situations creating a meta-decision of which talent to pick when. The build selected here provides the most universal coverage whilst maintaining an ease of entry to new players to grasp the Fury toolkit.

The core mechanic for Fury to keep in mind is Enrage Icon Enrage, increasing attack speed by 100% and all damage dealt relative to your Mastery: Unshackled Fury Icon Mastery: Unshackled Fury. This can be activated both through Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst critical strikes and Rampage Icon Rampage casts, increasing your Rage generation to flow into new windows creating a powerful feedback loop to capitalise upon. This is the key aspect to grasp the basics of Fury, so when learning the spec it should be your focus.

2. Talent Choices for Fury Warriors

The talents listed below are selected predominantly for ease of use and to mitigate more complex decisions when it comes to resource management. Whilst in a number of cases there are alternatives on the tree that will provide more if played well if selected at the right time in a given situation, they can cause a large performance drop if taken at the wrong time; so this should be taken as an introduction to Fury to get a grasp of the specialization.

3. Stat Choices for Fury Warriors

The current Fury stat priority is as follows when using this build:

  1. Haste;
  2. Mastery;
  3. Versatility;
  4. Critical Strike;
  5. Strength.

Haste is exceptionally valuable as it allows for increased Rage generation, hastening the activation of Rampage Icon Rampage casts to maintain your Enrage Icon Enrage effect, alongside allowing for additional global cooldowns during each Enrage window. Mastery enhances your Enrages, so follows closely behind, both of which outscale Strength currently. Versatility and Critical Strike fall quite far behind due to their lack of interaction with the core of Fury.

4. Basic Rotation for Fury Warriors

Note here that the build focuses entirely on getting into an Enrage Icon Enrage effect as often as possible. Whilst some skills can be used more effectively by managing them in specific situations, this is covered in the advanced section, so the rotation above should provide the best when learning the basics of Fury.
