1. The Basics of Stats for Fury Warrior

The stat priority for Fury Warrior is:

  1. Strength;
  2. Haste;
  3. Mastery;
  4. Versatility;
  5. Critical Strike.

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 recommended that you regularly sim your own gear upgrades and/or generate personalized stat weights.

Stat Simulations

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.

1.1. Getting a Better Understanding

1.2. Statistics

Strength is your primary stat, found on plate armor, weapons and trinkets. It provides Attack Power, which contributes to the damage of all abilities and auto-attacks.

Haste compresses the rotation, reducing the global cooldown, the time between the auto-attack swings, and the cooldown of the rotational abilities Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst, Raging Blow Icon Raging Blow, and Execute Icon Execute, as well as the speed at which Bladestorm Icon Bladestorm and Rampage Icon Rampage deal damage.

Mastery increases the damage bonus provided by Mastery: Unshackled Fury Icon Mastery: Unshackled Fury boosting all damage dealt while Enrage Icon Enrage is active.

Versatility provides a flat increase to damage dealt and reduces damage taken by half as much.

Critical Strikes deal double damage, although the stat has no other interaction with the specialization.

1.3. Breakpoints

Fury is primarily a Haste driven specialization, enhancing the amount it gains natively through Enrage Icon Enrage alone. Although it can have a large number of breakpoints, it remains one of Fury's most important secondary stats since more Haste increases the pace of the rotation, equating to more Rage, damage, and Enrage uptime.

2. Racial Bonuses for Fury Warrior

Racial Simulations

Racial bonuses have, as a whole, very minimal impact for Fury; anything within 1% of one another is typically considered trivial, and a small enough margin that our recommendation is to simply play what you enjoy the most.
