General Information

Welcome to our Fury Warrior DPS guide for World of Warcraft Legion 7.2.5. Here, you will learn everything you need to know about playing a Fury Warrior in a raid environment and in Mythic+ dungeons.

1. Class Overview

Coming into Legion, Fury has seen some quality of life changes to bring it up to speed and attempt to get away from some of the more limiting factors of the past, whilst still maintaining that core focus on Enrage Icon Enrage. Boasting very strong sustained damage with frequent burst windows and a robust toolkit through talents allowing you to tailor your output for different situations, it is a very powerful and very versatile Melee Specialization.

2. Patch 7.2.5 Changes

  • All damage has been increased by 5% to compensate for losses in certain trinket choices.
  • Draught of Souls Icon Draught of Souls damage has been reduced by 15% for Fury Warriors.
  • Frenzy Icon Frenzy has been buffed to 15 seconds, up from 10.
  • The  Icon Juggernaut has been increased to 8 seconds, from 6.
  • Two new legendaries have been added, Valarjar Berserkers Icon Valarjar Berserkers in the Leg slot, and Soul of the Battlelord Icon Soul of the Battlelord in the Ring slot.
  • The Fury Tier 19 4-piece bonus now only increases Enrage Icon Enrage duration by 1 second (down from 1.5)

3. Patch 7.2 Changes

7.2 added in additional Artifact traits including the new golden trait, Death and Glory Icon Death and Glory. Both the legendary bracers Mannoroth's Bloodletting Manacles Icon Mannoroth's Bloodletting Manacles and legendary shoulders Timeless Stratagem Icon Timeless Stratagem have had additional Versatility added to their secondary stat budgets.

4. Strengths

  • Very high, frequent bursts of heavy damage.
  • Frequently available cooldown that has a large impact on output.
  • Can switch targets without any major downsides.
  • Reasonable Cleave (5 or less targets) options due to Meat Cleaver Icon Meat Cleaver.
  • Exceptional burst AoE with  Icon Odyn's Fury.

5. Weaknesses

  • Can often be hindered by bad proc chains limiting Enrage Icon Enrage.
  • Large scale AoE limited by talents and cooldowns.

6. Viability in the Current Patch

Fury will remain very powerful due to its burst AoE capabilities and its ramping power during the Execute phase of a fight. Arms however has received significant buffs which has made it more contentious as to which spec is dominant leading into Tomb of Sargeras, and the loss of the Tier 19 effects alongside Draught of Souls Icon Draught of Souls no longer being relevant may hamper its previous power. Regardless, Fury will still have a spot in current raid content if current predictions are accurate.
