General Information

In this guide, you will find tips and advice to tackle Mythic+ dungeons with your Fury Warrior in World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.7.


Dragonflight Season 4

Rather than a mix of current and previous expansion dungeons, Mythic+ features all eight original Dragonflight dungeons in a single season for the first time, allowing experienced players to showcase their mastery!


Unique Challenges of Mythic+

Mythic+ Dungeons, especially high-level ones, make up the highest level of competitive PvE content that WoW has to offer aside from Mythic raiding.

Fury Warriors continue to be well suited to Mythic+ dungeon content, offering strong burst and an easy time switching between single and multi-target damage. While not the strongest specialization of the season, their combination of frequent AoE burst and strong personal survivability makes them well suited to completing even very high keys levels in Season 4.

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 that 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 Dragonflight Mythic+ Season 4 page below.


Fury Warrior Mythic+ Builds

Upon obtaining the Season 4 tier set, Fury Warriors will return to the Anger Management and Ravager playstyle, which focuses heavily on Recklessness and building big Bloodthirst crits, while dropping Odyn's Fury. As this is a significant build change, please review the Talents guide for more information.

Remember that you can easily import the talent tree below into the game with either of the two "Copy Export String" buttons:

Fury Warriors have a lot of talent choice when it comes to Mythic+, with the flexibility to bring extra defensives, utility, and tailor their damage to the expected situation.

  • Offensively, Improved Whirlwind Icon Improved Whirlwind and Meat Cleaver Icon Meat Cleaver are the most important talents, as they are necessary to allow Fury Warriors to cleave their single target rotation onto multiple enemies.
  • After obtaining the Season 4 tier set, Ravager Icon Ravager and Anger Management Icon Anger Management are the key components of Fury AoE, used on a very low cooldown to burst every pack of enemies.
  • Defensively, Defensive Stance Icon Defensive Stance and Spell Reflection Icon Spell Reflection are indispensable, while Impending Victory Icon Impending Victory, Pain and Gain Icon Pain and Gain, and Bitter Immunity Icon Bitter Immunity have more leeway depending on how difficult the dungeon is and how much you trust the healer!
  • Utility-wise, Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt is a very important tool, while Piercing Howl Icon Piercing Howl, Berserker Rage Icon Berserker Rage, Berserker Shout Icon Berserker Shout, and Intimidating Shout Icon Intimidating Shout are a little more circumstantial. Many groups will already provide passive slows, and not all dungeons have fear effects.
  • Shockwave Icon Shockwave is also a very powerful tool, and much easier to access than in the past, resulting in a very minor damage loss in exchange for more lockdown potential.

Rotational Considerations for Fury Warriors in Mythic+

For the most part, dealing AoE damage is very similar to the normal single target rotation, simply ensuring that the Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind buff is always active in order to cleave those single target abilities. Because of the nature of dungeons, however, with mobs dying constantly and there sometimes being downtime in between packs, we recommend taking the following extra considerations.

Note that the information below specifically pertains to Mythic+. If you require more general information, you should go to the main Rotation page below.


AoE Rotation

The Fury Warrior AoE rotation focuses on frequent use of burst cooldowns while cleaving the normal rotation single target rotation. With the full Season 4 set bonus, Bloodthirst becomes more important but is still only used periodically to apply Cold Steel, Hot Blood Icon Cold Steel, Hot Blood rather than strictly on cooldown. To facilitate this, use the Bloodthirst Crit Tracker WeakAura to help time Bloodthirst casts when they will have a 100% chance to crit and guarantee debuff application.


Example Season 4 Rotation vs Multiple Targets

  1. Open with Avatar Icon Avatar, Recklessness Icon Recklessness, and Charge Icon Charge whenever possible
  2. Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind to apply its buff, allowing abilities to cleave multiple targets
  3. Drop Ravager Icon Ravager in the middle of a group of targets
  4. Rampage Icon Rampage or Onslaught Icon Onslaught to trigger Enrage Icon Enrage
  5. Use Champion's Spear Icon Champion's Spear or Thunderous Roar Icon Thunderous Roar
  6. Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst at 6+ stacks of Merciless Assault Icon Merciless Assault to apply Cold Steel Hot Blood
  7. Rampage Icon Rampage should be used as often as possible to Enrage Icon Enrage and avoid Rage capping
  8. Continue the single target rotation, ensuring that Enrage Icon Enrage and the Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind buff are maintained as much as possible.

Fury Warrior Utility

Battle Shout Icon Battle Shout increases attack power by 5%, which applies to all melee specs and Warrior abilities, even those which do not deal purely Physical damage.

Pummel Icon Pummel is crucial in Mythic+ as interrupting dangerous spell casts is of the utmost importance.

Rallying Cry Icon Rallying Cry applies to the entire party, making it a strong defensive tool during periods of group-wide damage or a personal cooldown as needed.

Spell Reflection Icon Spell Reflection is exceptional in Mythic+, either for reducing the damage of powerful debuffs, or reflecting high damage and debilitating effects. Although the ability can be used quite often due to its low cooldown, properly identifying which abilities should be reflected is key, as it can completely nullify dangerous effects and render some enemies completely harmless.

Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt and Shockwave Icon Shockwave are other useful tools in stopping enemy attacks and spellcasts. Intimidating Shout Icon Intimidating Shout can also be used as a faux stun, but much less often due to the long cooldown.

Berserker Rage Icon Berserker Rage is a nice tool for breaking fears, while Berserker Shout Icon Berserker Shout will apply the effect to the entire party, though this is somewhat niche and will not be applicable to all dungeons.

Piercing Howl Icon Piercing Howl is a very good slow, but its cooldown makes it less reliable than the more passive options other classes may bring. Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap is a very mediocre slow, but you will often have it applied anyway.


Trinket Considerations for Fury Warriors in Mythic+

When choosing your trinkets, there are two avenues of approach. The first is maximizing burst in conjunction with your cooldowns, while the second is maximizing a single target in order to perform better on bosses. We recommend simulating yourself on Raidbots using the Patchwerk option for raids and single-target and DungeonSlice (Mythic+/AoE Fights) Fight Styles. Usually, we recommend using trinkets that proc stats rather than single-target damage dealers.

You can also get a quick overview of good Mythic+ Trinkets on our Gearing page, specifically the Simulation chart for multi-target scenarios.


Handling Mythic+ Affixes as a Fury Warrior

Most Mythic+ affixes require no special setup or gameplay considerations for Fury Warriors, although there are a few interactions to be aware of.

  • Afflicted Icon Afflicted spawns cannot be dealt with as a Warrior.
  • Entangling Icon Entangling can be easily handled with Heroic Leap to instantly break the root.
  • Incorporeal Icon Incorporeal spawns can be stunned or feared, but Warriors have no long-duration CC to handle them completely on their own.
  • Skittish Icon Spiteful spawns can be dangerous if you are not aware of their spawning, but are easily controlled by using Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt or Intimidating Shout Icon Intimidating Shout, allowing ample time to get away from or kill them.
  • Skittish Icon Storming damage can be reduced with Spell Reflection Icon Spell Reflection, but it will not prevent the knock-up.
