Fury Warrior PvP Stat Priority, Gear, and Trinkets (Shadowlands / Patch 9.0.2)

Last updated on Jan 25, 2021 at 01:32 by Karanze 3 comments

Choosing your gear carefully is important for your Fury Warrior in PvP. We give you a stat priority to help you choose items with the right stats, followed by advice on how to choose your gear and your trinkets.

This page is part of our Fury Warrior PvP Guide.

Stat Priority for Fury Warriors in PvP

The stat priority for Fury Warriors in PvP is as follows:

  1. Strength
  2. Versatility
  3. 30% haste
  4. Mastery
  5. Critical Strike
  6. Haste

Item level became a lot stronger in Shadowlands, which means that a piece with higher item level is generally an upgrade as long as it has some some versatility on it.

The 30% haste cutoff is more of a preferential thing, you are fine as long as you are withing the 20%-30% haste area.

If you are going for the Reckless Defense Icon Reckless Defense build, critical strike becomes more attractive than mastery (see our page on Fury Warrior PvP Covenants and Legendaries for more details).

Gear Recommendations

2.1.

General Guidelines

Your gear goal should be to be fully equipped in conquest gear. If you have a difficult time climbing rating to upgrade the conquest gear, then you can pick up these pieces from PvE content, as they hold roughly equal power to conquest gear.

Useful PvE Gear

2.2.

Note: It is important to be wearing 2 PvP trinkets. This will give you a boost to the offensive portion of your versatility.

Sinful Gladiator's Medallion Icon Sinful Gladiator's Medallion is a mandatory trinket to have equipped at all times. If you play Human, swap the medallion out with Sinful Gladiator's Relentless Brooch Icon Sinful Gladiator's Relentless Brooch. Do not ever swap out these trinkets.

Sinful Gladiator's Insignia of Alacrity Icon Sinful Gladiator's Insignia of Alacrity is the biggest damage increase you can get. As Fury Warrior, you want to increase your sustained damage as much as possible.

Sinful Gladiator's Emblem Icon Sinful Gladiator's Emblem gives you an extra defensive by giving you a temporary health increase. This should be used if your priority is to survive and you know you are the kill target. Activating this trinket can then further empower Rallying Cry Icon Rallying Cry and Phial of Serenity Icon Phial of Serenity on you, should it be necessary. In general, I recommend only taking this trinket against compositions like Rogue+Mage where you win the long game by default.
