Fury Warrior PvP Guide (Shadowlands 9.2.5)
This guide will walk you through everything you need to know to play in a PvP environment. The guide will cover everything from talent choices, PvP talents, gameplay and rotation, and useful racial bonuses. It is most applicable to Arena content, but most talents and racial bonuses will work in Rated Battlegrounds and skirmishes.

Fury Warriors in the Current Meta
Fury Warrior takes on the style of playing very aggressively, attempting to end the game as quickly as possible, before they run out of defensive options and die in a stun. Fury Warrior can push out a lot of pressure and burst damage, and has great cleave damage with Whirlwind.
Fury Warrior has benefited a lot from the addition of Tier Sets, and is currently running rampant as the strongest melee in the meta. Fury is a very single-minded specialization, which focuses on keeping the snowball rolling to further momentum with little care for defensive play. As long as you can stay aggressive, you will decimate any class in the game through Slaughterhouse and the Fury Warrior 4-Piece.
