Best Covenant for Fury Warrior in PvP
For more information about what Covenants give you, please refer to our page about Covenant abilities page for Warriors.
The choice of your Covenant is important when it comes to PvP. However, you may have reason to pick another Covenant than the best one for PvP. It is important to note that regardless of what choice you make, all the Covenants are at least viable up to gladiator rating. The difference in Covenant will, however, only become more apparent as you start to reach higher and higher rating.
The best Covenants for Fury Warrior are: Venthyr > Kyrian > Night Fae > Necrolord.
Venthyr is the best covenant for Fury Warrior, because Condemn gives the most pressure. Kyrian is only really good for the tether effect from Spear of Bastion, and can help you secure kills against Mage, Druid, Hunter and similar kiting classes.
How come I have fewer options compared to Arms?
As Fury Warrior, you have less burst damage and therefore benefit the most from increasing your sustained damage as much as possible. Condemn is overall the biggest increase, with Spear of Bastion and Ancient Aftershock suiting burst damage. Additionally, unlike Arms Warrior, you have fewer amplifiers. Arms Warrior naturally gain a lot more burst value out of these abilities, because of Warbreaker and Avatar.
With the rework of Conqueror's Banner, the Necrolord Covenant might be a potential competitor with Condemn. The buff duration is very long and allows you to stick to your target easily while it is up, making it very deadly when combined with Recklessness.
- Kyrian provides you with Spear of Bastion, which is an extremely powerful crowd-control and burst damage option. The spear tether is inescapable, even from teleport effects such as Shimmer and Transcendence: Transfer. The only way to leave the spear is through knockback, physical and magical immunities. This ability makes finishing off Monks, Druids, Mages, Hunters and other kiting classes a lot easier.
- Night Fae gives you Ancient Aftershock. This
ability has a very high Attack Power scaling, and can quickly turn into
a very powerful burst tool through all the different damage amplifiers
Fury Warrior has, despite not reaching the levels an Arms Warrior can push it
to. You generally will not make much use of the aftershocks themselves, so use
it as a burst tool and for the 1.5-second knockdown. This CC does not share
diminishing returns with stuns.
- Soulshape is the signature ability and is very good for chasing down targets or escaping to safety.
- Venthyr gives the very popular ability Condemn,
which replaces Execute. The catch with this ability is that although
it is Shadow damage and penetrates Armor, it has lower Attack Power scaling
than Execute has which causes it to deal less damage against
lower-armored targets than the ability it replaces. Condemn provides powerful
pressure to targets that are immobile and durable, such as Paladins or Warlocks,
but also allows you great uptime through Death Sentence.
- You also get access to Door of Shadows, which is an okay ability for quickly repositioning, but is vulnerable to being interrupted. The disorient granted through Nadjia The Mistblade is reduced to 3 seconds in PvP, and is best used as a disruption tool rather than CC'ing the enemy healer.
- Necrolord grants you Conqueror's Banner. You gain a large
portion of Mastery with this ability, which is shared with two other teammates
in your near proximity, as well as being unable to be reduced below 100% movement
speed. Veteran's Repute gives you a large increase to Strength while the
banner is active, and is another reason why this covenant is very strong.
- The ability that follows with Necrolord is Fleshcraft, which is a rather powerful 40% max health shield that can be enhanced through its soulbinds to grant CC immunity for the channeled duration plus more if fully channeled.
Best Soulbinds for Fury Warriors in PvP
Soulbinds are unlocked as you progress your character with a Covenant. Each Covenant features 3 Soulbinds that each have their own benefits and paths to follow. I recommend you take these Soulbinds and paths for each Covenant.
General Draven for Venthyr
Pelagos for Kyrian
Korayn for Night Fae
Emeni or Plague Deviser Marileth for Necrolord
Best Conduits for Fury Warriors in PvP
Conduits are passive buffs that you can use to fill empty slots in your Soulbind Trees. There are three types of Conduits: Potency, Endurance, and Finesse. Here are the best Conduits for each of those different types:
Best Potency Conduits for Fury Warriors in PvP
- Depths of Insanity provides you the most sustained damage, letting you have Recklessness for longer.
- Ashen Juggernaut gives you Critical Strike chance on Condemn. Only use this if you are Venthyr.
- Piercing Verdict, Destructive Reverberations and Veteran's Repute should substitute Ashen Juggernaut if you are playing non-Venthyr and use a 2nd Potency Conduit.
Best Endurance Conduits for Fury Warriors in PvP
- Stalwart Guardian reduces the cooldown of your primary defensive, Enraged Regeneration. This is a mandatory Conduit to pick, none of the others come close to this one.
Best Finesse Conduits for Fury Warriors in PvP
- Inspiring Presence increases the health granted and duration of Rallying Cry. This is a mandatory Conduit to pick, it greatly increases the survivability of your team.
- Safeguard makes Intervene reduce the damage the target takes. If you are going for a second Finesse Conduit, you should pick this to give the target of your Intervene protection against spell damage and DoTs.
Best Legendaries for Fury Warriors in PvP
Legendaries have many different effects and some can alter how you should use some of your abilities. For more information on Legendaries, check out our general guide on them.
Here are the best Legendaries for a Fury Warrior.
- With the redesign of Reckless Defense, this Legendary is now the best overall. On top of no longer forcing you into a Critical-Strike-heavy build, you are almost guaranteed 1 second shaved off of Recklessness and Enraged Regeneration with every Rampage.
- Misshapen Mirror let us you give Spell Reflection to the nearest ally, very similar to Overwatch. This is a good backup Legendary to have vs teams that rely on CC'ing your healer with magic. Examples are Hunters with Freezing Trap or spell cleaves with Polymorph and Cyclone.
- Sephuz's Proclamation provides good defensive power and offensive power. This Legendary is an option if you are playing Orc as Hardiness stacks with it.
- Although an Arms Warrior legendary, Unhinged works with Bladestorm for Fury Warrior and is the only way for Fury Warrior to apply Mortal Wounds. The Mortal Strikes does great damage and makes your burst powerful.
- Signet of Tormented Kings is the largest damage increase you can get and is a good Legendary to play with.
