WOW Dragonflight: Fury Warrior Guide
Welcome to the ultimate guide for Fury Warriors in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight! As a relentless and fearsome melee damage dealer, Fury Warriors wield dual weapons and rely on their unyielding rage to obliterate their foes. This comprehensive guide will help you maximize your potential as a Fury Warrior, covering everything from talents and rotations to gear and consumables.
Generally, selecting a race has minimal impact on your DPS. Historically, the majority of races for Warriors have less than a 1% difference in DPS.
Fury Warriors have three talent tiers that primarily focus on damage output, survivability, and utility. Each tier presents unique options, and your choices will depend on your playstyle and raid or dungeon requirements. Here's recommended talents to focus on for a balanced Fury Warrior:
Tier 1 (Level 15): Endless Rage
- Endless Rage generates additional Rage from auto-attacks, improving your sustained damage output.
Tier 2 (Level 30): Double Time
- Double Time grants you an extra charge of Charge, providing increased mobility and Rage generation.
Tier 3 (Level 45): Sudden Death
Sudden Death makes your auto-attacks have a chance to reset the cooldown of Execute, increasing your damage during Execute phases.
Tier 4 (Level 60): Warpaint
- Warpaint reduces the damage you take while Enraged by 10%, improving your survivability in high-damage situations.
Tier 5 (Level 75): Cruelty
- Cruelty increases the critical strike chance of Rampage by 15%, significantly boosting your damage output.
Tier 6 (Level 90): Bloodbath
- Bloodbath enhances your Raging Blow, causing it to deal additional damage over time and snaring the target. This talent is excellent for both single-target and cleave damage.
Tier 7 (Level 100): Reckless Abandon
- Reckless Abandon improves the power of your Recklessness ability, granting additional Rage and increasing its duration.
Rotation and Abilities
The Fury Warrior rotation revolves around building and spending Rage to deal massive damage. Here's the priority list for your abilities:
- Execute (when Sudden Death procs or target is below 20% health)
- Rampage (when at 90 Rage or buffed by Recklessness)
- Raging Blow (when at 2 charges)
- Bloodthirst (on cooldown)
- Raging Blow (when at 1 charge)
- Whirlwind (as a filler ability)
Keep in mind that maintaining the Enrage buff from Bloodthirst is crucial for maximizing your damage output. In AoE situations, replace Whirlwind with Bladestorm and prioritize using Meat Cleaver to cleave Raging Blow and Bloodthirst.
