The Basics of Stats for Fury Warrior
The stat priority for Fury Warrior is:
- 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. While Haste and Mastery are generally the best two stats for Fury Warriors, it is highly recommended that you regularly sim your own gear upgrades and/or generate personalized stat weights.
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.
Getting a Better Understanding
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, Raging Blow, and Execute, as well as the speed at which Bladestorm and Rampage deal damage. While Enrage uptime is much higher in Dragonflight than it was in Shadowlands, Haste remains a strong stat simply due to the increased action frequency and reduction of rotational cooldowns like Bloodthirst and Raging Blow.
Mastery increases the damage bonus provided by Mastery: Unshackled Fury boosting all damage dealt while Enrage is active.
Critical Strikes deal double damage, although Fury does not generate extra Rage on Critical Strike, the way Arms does. This leaves the value of Critical Strike somewhat low, although builds using Cold Steel, Hot Blood or Elysian Might will still find value in it, particularly when highly geared to the point where Haste and Mastery begin to suffer diminishing returns.
Versatility provides a flat increase to damage dealt and reduces damage taken by half as much.
Fury is primarily a Haste driven specialization, enhancing the amount it gains natively through 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.
