General Information

In this guide, you will find tips and advice to tackle Mythic+ dungeons with your Fury Warrior in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.3.

1.

Fury Warrior in Mythic+

Fury Warriors are currently very strong in Mythic+, bringing strong burst, sustained cleave, and respectable single-target damage. They falter in terms of defensive and group utility in the highest of keys, but can reliably complete +15 dungeons without too many issues, and push higher with the right group setup.

Because the majority of Mythic+ revolves around dealing with multiple targets, Fury follows the basic multi-target priority laid out in the Rotation, Cooldowns, and Abilities page. The key difference is in predicting the layout of the dungeon, and knowing when to save cooldowns versus when to use them. Smartly saving your cooldowns when a target is about to die, and instead using it on a fresh pack which will survive the duration of your burst damage is far more efficient and will help your group finish on time.

If you are unfamiliar with Mythic+ and its associated general mechanics, you can read more about it on our dedicated Mythic+ page below.

1.1.

Fury Warrior Utility

In addition to the group-wide buff Battle Shout Icon Battle Shout, Fury Warriors can talent the short cooldown stun Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt, and have access to Rallying Cry Icon Rallying Cry to help with high damage spikes.

Mythic+ Talents for Fury Warrior

Below are the suggested talents for Mythic+. There are two main builds for Mythic+ dungeons, largely determined by your essence choice. Blood of the Enemy (Blood of the Enemy Icon Blood of the Enemy + Blood-Soaked Icon Blood-Soaked) synergizes very well with Reckless Abandon Icon Reckless Abandon and provides the highest burst potential, while Essence of the Focusing Iris (Focused Azerite Beam Icon Focused Azerite Beam + Focused Energy Icon Focused Energy) pairs well with Anger Management Icon Anger Management and Bladestorm Icon Bladestorm for much more frequently burst. Lastly, Condensed Life-Force (Guardian of Azeroth Icon Guardian of Azeroth + Condensed Life-Force Icon Condensed Life-Force) can be used for prioritizing single target damage, though it is seldom as important a consideration.

Level Choices
15 War Machine War Machine Endless Rage Endless Rage Fresh Meat Fresh Meat
30 Double Time Double Time Impending Victory Impending Victory Storm Bolt ? Storm Bolt
45 Inner Rage Inner Rage Sudden Death Sudden Death Furious Slash Furious Slash
60 Furious Charge Furious Charge Bounding Stride ? Bounding Stride Warpaint Warpaint
75 Carnage Carnage Massacre Massacre Frothing Berserker Frothing Berserker
90 Meat Cleaver Meat Cleaver Dragon Roar Dragon Roar Bladestorm Bladestorm
100 Reckless Abandon Reckless Abandon Anger Management Anger Management Siegebreaker ? Siegebreaker

Fury Warriors have a moderate amount of talent choices in Mythic+, with the flexibility to bring extra mobility, utility, and tailor their damage to the expected situation. When expecting to pull multiple packs into one large group, Frothing Berserker Icon Frothing Berserker, Bladestorm Icon Bladestorm, and Siegebreaker Icon Siegebreaker have great synergy, although it takes a considerable amount of build up, delaying your burst. Due to the buff from Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind, all of Fury's abilities will cleave up to 5 targets, making Fury very well suited to dealing sustained multi-target damage. This is especially effective with groups that pull small packs quickly, rather than creating large groups to burst down all at once.

  • Level 15: Endless Rage Icon Endless Rage provides the most consistent increase in Rage generation.
  • Level 30: Double Time Icon Double Time is a staple for both mobility and rage generation leading to more damage, although Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt can be taken when stuns are needed to lock down difficult opponents.
  • Level 45: Sudden Death Icon Sudden Death is a straightforward and versatile option which requires little micromanagment.
  • Level 60: Warpaint Icon Warpaint is only a moderate, but very consistent damage reduction. The high active time combined with Fury's own natural healing will help take pressure off your healer, especially in higher keys.
  • Level 75: Carnage Icon Carnage is really the only worthwhile option.
  • Level 90: Bladestorm Icon Bladestorm has higher burst on a longer cooldown, while Dragon Roar Icon Dragon Roar is the opposite. They are very closely tuned, so pick whichever best suits your needs, although Bladestorm has a notable advantage when also using Gathering Storm Icon Gathering Storm.
  • Level 100: Siegebreaker Icon Siegebreaker remains the best single target damage option, however both Anger Management Icon Anger Management and Reckless Abandon Icon Reckless Abandon are better for multitarget damage, depending on your approach. Anger Management reliably aligns Recklessness with Bladestorm for more frequent multi-target burst, while Reckless Abandon syncs very well with Blood of the Enemy Icon Blood of the Enemy for high burst against particularly important targets and is common when pushing high keys. In this case, it is best to choose what most fits your intended strategy.

Mythic+ Affixes

The way Mythic+ affixes are tiered in Battle for Azeroth has changed quite a bit since their launch in Legion.

There are now three weekly affixes and one seasonal affix. The first affix is activated at level two, while the second affix starts at level four, the third affix is enabled at level seven, and the seasonal affix occurs at level ten.

3.1.

Seasonal Affix

Awakened Icon Awakened replaces Beguiling as the seasonal affix for Season 4 of Battle for Azeroth. In it, obelisks exist within dungeons which will pull players into a Corrupted alternate reality inhabited by lieutenants of N'Zoth who must be defeated before the final boss, lest they ambush you in turn. Upon defeating a lieutenant, a portal is created which allows players to move back and forth between realities, avoiding enemies and creating skips that previously required special class abilities.

Unfortunately, Fury Warriors do not have much interaction with the mechanic, though they should be aware of potential skips and how that may impact the dungeon progress route in order to effectively time cooldowns.

4.

Mythic+ Azerite Traits

Simmering Rage Icon Simmering Rage and Unbridled Ferocity Icon Unbridled Ferocity are both very good for both single and multi-target damage, while also providing powerful secondary bonuses which speed up resource generation and the pace of gameplay.

Cold Steel, Hot Blood Icon Cold Steel, Hot Blood is the best trait to stack for multi-target damage, due to the ability to apply the debuff to multiple targets through cleaving Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst with Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind.
