General Information

On this page, we explain how to easily play Fury Warrior in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.3, using the simplest rotation, talent tree, stat priority, gear setup, etc., without sacrificing performance.



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.


The Basics of Fury Warrior

Fury is straightforward damage dealer, focused on building Rage with autoattacks and special abilities, in order to spend it on Rampage Icon Rampage to trigger Enrage Icon Enrage. This creates a constant and fast paced gameplay loop, enhanced by the specialization's built-in haste buffs. The build showcased here is a simple yet effective play style, good for all types of game content, which is meant to help new players learn the fundamentals of Fury.


Talent Choices for Fury Warrior

While there are better performing combinations, they also have more room for error. The talents listed below are meant to simplify decision making and resource management, while introducing players to Fury's single target, burst, and AoE potential. Despite being the "easy mode", it is still quite effective for questing, dungeons, and raid content.


Essences for Fury Warrior

There are many useful and competitive essences, depending on what type of content you are doing.

  • In the Major essence slot, Memory of Lucid Dreams Icon Memory of Lucid Dreams is well rounded, engaging, and good for all content, particularly with Anger Management Icon Anger Management talented.
  • Condensed Life-Force, major power, Guardian of Azeroth Icon Guardian of Azeroth, is the best for single-target, specifically at Rank 3.
  • Essence of the Focusing Iris's major power, Focused Azerite Beam Icon Focused Azerite Beam, and Purification Protocol's maor power, Purifying Blast Icon Purifying Blast, are both very competitive for frequent multi-target.
  • As you unlock Minor essence slots, Worldvein Resonance's Lifeblood Icon Lifeblood is very potent when stacked with other players using it at Rank 3.
  • Essence of the Focusing Iris's Focused Energy Icon Focused Energy and The Crucible of Flame's Ancient Flame Icon Ancient Flame are competitive single-target minor effects.
  • Purification Protocol Icon Purification Protocol is a good minor choice for sustained multi-target situations.

Azerite Traits for Fury Warrior

Because some bonuses do not stack when using two or three instances of the trait, Fury Warrior Azerite traits require juggling to maintain the proper bonuses.


Stat Choices for Fury Warrior

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

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

Fury is a Haste-driven spec, due to it increasing autoattack speed and reducing the time between ability casts, both of which result in increased Rage generation and Enrage Icon Enrage uptime, while Mastery increases damage done during that buff. Critical Strikes deal double damage, but otherwise do not interact with the specialization, while Versatility is a flat increase to damage done and reduces damage taken by half as much. As is the case for most specializations, the specific values of these stats is largely determined by your individual gear, and more information can be found on the Stat Priority page.

With the Azerite trait Cold Steel, Hot Blood Icon Cold Steel, Hot Blood, the value of Critical Strike rises to match Haste.


Basic Rotation for Fury Warrior

The typical single target rotation using our suggested talents is outlined below. When there are multiple targets, prioritize Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind as needed to maintain its buff and ensure the rest of your abilities hit multiple targets. Because it is part of the core rotation, the buff will often be maintained on its own.

While all builds focus on the same principle of converting Rage into damage with Rampage Icon Rampage and maintaining Enrage Icon Enrage, other talents add extra abilities, maintenance buffs, and can lengthen the Execute phase. These talents and their rotations are covered in more detial in the advanced sections of the guide.
