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 Changes

7.2 adds 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.

3. What Has Changed in 7.1.5?

Aside from some small buffs to general ability damage and the new secondary conversion rates, Fury has recieved fairly small changes. A large number of talents had some minor alterations to open up more options in the tree, but nothing too significant has happened.

4. Strengths

  • Very high, frequent bursts of high damage.
  • Frequently available cooldown that has a large impact on output.
  • Can switch targets without any major downsides.
  • Cleave (5 or less targets) very strong 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

In the Legion landscape Fury fares very well due to the high amount of multi target situations. In Mythic+, the power of  Icon Odyn's Fury really shines for burst AoE, and that can be pushed further with talents such as Bladestorm Icon Bladestorm to fill in the gaps. Alongside this Fury has a lot of versatile tools both in the base kit and in talents, which further pushes its strength. Finally, having the robust mobility toolkit Warriors already come with makes for a great all round specialisation. With 7.1.5, it also appears to be much closer to Arms the further into Nighthold you reach, making it a strong contender with the new Tier 19 4-piece set bonus and trinkets available.
