1. Raid Best in Slot List for Fury Warrior

With the existence of Titanforged and Mythic+ dungeons, there is no such thing as a hard Best in Slot anymore. This is more of a guideline for the best pieces to keep an eye out for in your raid or dungeon (if applicable). Be smart, and if you find higher item level pieces with valuable stat combinations do not hesitate to upgrade to them.

Slot Item Source

Ring #2 Zealous Tormentor's Ring Icon Zealous Tormentor's Ring The Coven of Shivarra
Trinket #1 Khaz'goroth's Courage Icon Khaz'goroth's Courage Argus the Unmaker
Trinket #2 Seeping Scourgewing Icon Seeping Scourgewing Varimathras

Jeweled Signet of Melandrus Icon Jeweled Signet of Melandrus is valuable to Fury due to their already potent autoattack damage being buffed by Enrage Icon Enrage. This makes it the theoretical best-in-slot ring, although it still needs to be of a competitive ilevel, or else the loss of stats can outweigh the bonus damage. Keep in mind also that autoattacks have little value on multitarget, making it primarily a single target optimization.

1.1. Trinkets

As of Battle for Azeroth patch 8.0, class damage buffs and debuffs such as Colossus Smash Icon Colossus Smash and Avatar Icon Avatar no longer increase the damage of non-specialization damage, including potions, enchants, and trinkets.

This trinket list compares equal item level pieces from Antorus, meant as a guideline to help prioritize upgrades, so care should be taken when asssessing your own pieces should they vary. As always, simming your own gear is recommended.

Trinket Simulations

The Pantheon trinket should always be worn in Antorus, the Burning Throne, for its raid benefit, due to additional Pantheon trinket users in raid triggering the empowered effect, even if it is not strictly the best option you have available. Aman'Thul's Vision Icon Aman'Thul's Vision is even more powerful, although much more rare.

Seeping Scourgewing Icon Seeping Scourgewing is the absolute best single target trinket, although it loses nearly 20% of its damage when any other targets are nearby. Therefore, it cannot be relied upon exclusively for all encounters.

1.2. Evaluating Upgrades with dynamic Item Levels

Due to the Warforging/Titanforging system, having a full comprehensive list of gear ranked against each other would be far too elaborate and confusing to compile, and as such it is recommended instead to evaluate upscaled items using rough stat weights. As always with weights, they can change depending on your gear and to get them perfectly accurate for your character, it is always advised to simulate it yourself, however for the purpose of this I will use example Fury stat weights:

These sample stat weights represent the general relationship of secondary stats compared to one point of strength, although as usual, individual results may vary. It is highly recommend that you regularly sim your own gear upgrades and/or generate personalized stat weights.

  • Critical Strike: 1.26
  • Haste: 1.16
  • Strength: 1.00
  • Versatility: 0.94
  • Mastery: 0.82

While you can use these weights to math out the value and compare individual items by hand, in-game addons such as Pawn will do so automatically.

2. Racial Bonuses for Fury Warrior

Racial Simulations

Racial bonuses are as a whole, very minimal for Fury, typically within 1% of one another, which is a small enough margin that it is recommended to simply play what you enjoy the most.

3. Legendary Items for Fury Warrior

Legendary items have a high item level of 265, which makes them extremely strong. They are so strong, in fact, that a legendary item is always going to be worth equipping over any other item you might have in that slot.

However, there is a limitation on the number of legendary items you can have equipped at any one time (by default 1, but by now most players should be able to equip 2). Since some legendary items are better than others, if you have more items than the limit, you will have to choose which ones to equip.

Below, we will do our best to guide you through this process, as well as provide any other relevant information.

Ceann-Ar Charger Icon Ceann-Ar Charger significantly increases Rage generation and Enrage Icon Enrage uptime in the same manner as Endless Rage Icon Endless Rage, making it a top tier legendary.

Valarjar Berserkers Icon Valarjar Berserkers can trigger on any number of the four Rampage Icon Rampage swings, allowing for large, frequent bursts of Rage. Although the effect is dependent on getting critical strikes, the average Rage generation is high enough to make it one of the best legendaries.

Ayala's Stone Heart Icon Ayala's Stone Heart is a powerful option which works exactly as Sudden Death Icon Sudden Death, although the two effects compete with one another, and one cast of Execute Icon Execute will consume both effects.

Soul of the Battlelord Icon Soul of the Battlelord grants the Massacre Icon Massacre talent, allowing Carnage Icon Carnage or Frothing Berserker Icon Frothing Berserker to be talented alongside it, for a unique gameplay option.

Naj'entus's Vertebrae Icon Naj'entus's Vertebrae provides a 33% increase to the damage of Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind at 3+ targets, making it a strong choice for multitarget, though not as universally useful as increased rage generation.

Kazzalax, Fujieda's Fury Icon Kazzalax, Fujieda's Fury provides a consistent damage bonus, though the buff must be maintained, which can get in the way of the rotation.

Sephuz's Secret Icon Sephuz's Secret is decent for open world content due to being easily activated by Charge Icon Charge, though it is not a particularly useful option for anything other than movement speed.

Insignia of the Grand Army Icon Insignia of the Grand Army is a poor choice, since the Crucible has been deactivated.

Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish Icon Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish is powerful on its own, but competes with the equally powerful trinket slot, rather than against armor pieces which typically have no bonus effects. Due to this opportunity cost, this legendary trinket is less competitive than it appears.

Aggramar's Stride Icon Aggramar's Stride is not much for combat, but the absolute best legendary for getting around quickly, particularly in conjunction with War Machine Icon War Machine.

Timeless Stratagem Icon Timeless Stratagem provides burst mobility through leaping multiple times in quick succeession. Fun, although rarely practical, it is better used out of combat.

Rethu's Incessant Courage Icon Rethu's Incessant Courage has a dual effect, healing when enemies are nearby, and increasing movement speed when they are not. Ideally made for open world content, it can be bought off the auction house, mkaing it a great starter legendary for new characters.

Mannoroth's Bloodletting Manacles Icon Mannoroth's Bloodletting Manacles grants even more self-healing in moderate chunks due to spending Rage enmasse with Rampage Icon Rampage. It is purely defensive and not particularly useful in group content with dedicated healers, but can be very useful in solo open world content, particularly for new or undergeared characters.

Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus Icon Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus is the best survivability option, both when solo and in group content, due to the advantage of absorbing damage, rather than trying to heal it up after the fact. Commonly used by progression groups, and can keep you from being dazed or dismounted in the open world as well.

3.1. Recommended Legendaries

Given the choice, the best legendaries for both single and multitarget are, in order:
