Fury Warrior PvP Best Arena Compositions (Shadowlands / Patch 9.0.5)
Team composition in 2v2 or 3v3 Arena is very important, because not all classes work well together. Here, we give you the best compositions you can have for your Fury Warrior (i.e., the best classes to pair with it).
This page is part of our Fury Warrior PvP Guide.
Fury Warriors are about staying ahead of your opponents on pressure. Fury Warrior has a lot of passive sustain and damage, as long as you have uptime on your target, you can beat out most people. The real trouble is consistently sticking to your target, as you are susceptible to abilities such as Chains of Ice. As Fury Warrior, you need to maximize your pressure, and try to shatter the enemy team before the game lasts too long.
Unlike Arms Warrior, you do not benefit from going into deep dampening. This is because you are oriented around self-healing and do not have Mortal Wounds. This makes your role kind of contradictory, as you want to slowly whittle people down, but the longer the match lasts the more likely you are of losing.
It is important to make use of cross CC, meaning you should try to time CC with your healer onto the enemy healer and DPS to not only stop their healing output, but also stop them from disabling your damage output with abilities such as Disarm, Mortal Coil, Polymorph etc. Mastering this strategy is key to closing out games, but you should not focus solely on it, as it can be equally good to stun an opponent out of line of sight of his teammate, or to ruin major cooldowns like Avenging Wrath.
I strongly recommend you learn each and every offensive and defensive cooldown for all specilizations, and get addons like Flyplatebuffs, BigDebuffs, and Gladius, so you have an easier time knowing when and how you should react. Alternatively, weakauras are a good way to customize your UI and alerts. These addons will give you an easier time identifying when an enemy uses cooldowns, that can be difficult to spot visually, like Icy Veins and Vendetta. See our Fury Warrior PvP Macros page for more information on the subject.
Here is a list of the best team compositions for 2v2:
In 3v3 your role is to apply pressure to the enemy team. Because you do not have Mortal Wounds, the choice of compositions is very limited. The general rule in arena for a composition to work is to either have Mortal Wounds and high sustained damage, or a lot of CC and burst damage. As Fury Warrior, you do not bring CC nor Mortal Wounds, so your composition needs to aim at compensating for this.
Other than that, your general purpose is to apply constant pressure to the enemy team, and in conjunction with your DPS partner, you can score kills by overwhelming the enemy.
The best compositions will each be explained in detail below.
Here is a list of the best team compositions for 3v3:
- Fury Warrior + Windwalker Monk + Holy Paladin/Restoration Shaman
- KFC (Fury Warrior + Survival Hunter + Discipline Priest/Restoration Shaman)
Fury + Windwalker
Fury Warrior and Windwalker Monk have one simple goal in mind, and that is to stampede a target as hard as possible. The consistent damage this composition is able to push out is considerable, and hard for the enemy team to sustain for long. Your goal is to do as much damage as possible, and safeguard your team with Intervene.
KFC is less about sustained damage and more about making kills in Freezing Trap windows. Your job is still to apply as much damage as possible, but hold onto major cooldowns like Recklessness and Siegebreaker until your hunter has successfully landed a trap. Storm Bolt should be used on the kill target.
