For WoW Classic Patch 1.12, we present the complete guide to Warrior's Fury Spec. Here, we explain Talents, Rotation, Statistics, Equipment and Professions.

WoW Classic: Fury Warrior Specialization Guide

The WoW Classic Fury Warrior is a furious berserker who wields a weapon in each hand, or more rarely, a two-handed weapon. They use a variety of rapid attacks to tear their opponents to pieces.

Tier S (PVE) and Tier B (PVP)

The Fury Warrior is one of the best DPS in PvE, thanks to its bleed from the Deep Wound debuff and its Execution phase. Not only is it very versatile, but having several Fury Warriors in the same raid is often a great asset because of the flexibility in the talents they can choose.

In PvP, this specialization is much weaker than its Arms counterpart. Therefore, this guide is mainly oriented towards PvE players.

Excellent in PvE
Possibility to have several Fury Warriors within a single raid
Plate armour makes the spec resilient
Three stances allow you to adapt to different situations
Can use almost every weapon in the game
Repetitive and rather boring gameplay
Better on Horde than Alliance
Vulnerable to CC in PvP

Talents

Build 17/34/0, Fury Enhanced Battle Shout - World of Warcraft: Classic
Build 17/34/0, Fury Enhanced Battle Shout
Build 17/34/0, Fury Improved Cleave - World of Warcraft: Classic
Build 17/34/0, Fury Improved Cleave

The only difference between the two builds above is in the Fury Talent Tree, in the Improved Battle Shout and Improved Cleave, and this is why:

If your raid group has multiple Warriors, each one will usually be assigned to a group in order to benefit from the Improved Battle Shout of the first build presented. Generally, the one or two Warriors with the most powerful weapons (depending on composition) will be assigned to play with the Improved Cleave build to maximize the damage, while all others will play with Improved Battle Shout to give the Battle Shout buff to the rest of the raid.

Build 17/34/0 Horde, Fury Two-Handed Weapons - World of Warcraft: Classic
Build 17/34/0 Horde, Fury Two-Handed Weapons

This final build is reserved only for Warriors playing in the Horde, and who have a Two-Handed Weapon more powerful than their two potential one-handed weapons. Indeed, the effectiveness of the Shaman's Windfury Totem in combination with the Hand of Justice and the Flurry talents makes for a deadly combination.

Note: Alliance players can benefit from this particular build provided they have an excellent two-handed weapon — to which, of course, we wish you good luck!

Stats to prioritize

Hit (8% Cap) > Critical Strike > Strength > Attack Power

Ability priority and key spells

  1. Bloodthirst if there are less than 3 targets in range,
  2. Whirlwind when at least 3 targets are within your reach,
  3. Whirlwind if there are less than 3 targets in range, Bloodthirst is on CD, and you know that you will have enough Rage to cast your next Bloodthirst after using Whirlwind,
  4. Overpower if available,
  5. Heroic Strike if you have at least 80 Rage points and Bloodthirst and Whirlpool are on cooldown,
  6. Cleave if there are at least 2 targets within range, if you have at least 80 Rage points, and Whirlwind is on cooldown.
Recklessness

Recklessness

Recklessness is undoubtedly the flagship offensive CD of the Warrior, but at a significant price. Not only is the cooldown especially long (30 minutes), but it also increases the damage you take by 20%. So, use it as soon as possible, but be careful not to die!

Note: Recklessness shares its cooldown with Recklessness and Retaliation, so be sure which of the three you should use.

Shield Wall

Shield Wall

This is the defensive equivalent of Recklessness but without the negative side-effect, since the Shield Wall reduces all damage you suffer by 75% for 10 seconds. This is the last-chance panic technique, so save it for cases of extreme urgency!

Note: Shield Wall shares its cooldown with Recklessness and Retaliation, so be sure which of the three you should use.

Retaliation

Retaliation

Finally, Retaliation is the sister technique of the two previous, and this time favours PvP encounters. Like the Shield Wall, Retaliation has no negative side-effect outside its 30-minute CD, and can deal heavy damage to anyone who attacks you in melee combat for a handful of seconds. This is the dream technique against Rogues who believe they are all alone.

Note: Retaliation shares its cooldown with Recklessness and Shield Wall, so be sure of which of the three to use.

Best Race for Fury Warrior

Horde

Orc

The power of the Orc is as incomparable in PvE as it is in PvP thanks to its Blood Fury and Axe Specialization racials. No race equals it in PvE. Finally, Hardiness gives them a clear advantage over other races in PvP.

Undead

The real highlight of the Undead race, besides its incredible style, is Will of the Forsaken — which is excellent in PvP. Apart from that, Cannibalize is good for levelling and PvP, but has no real use in PvE.

Alliance

Human

The Human has some serious advantages, but far fewer than those of the Orc. Mace Specialization and Sword Specialization are rather useful, Diplomacy is decent for reputation grinding, and Perception is very useful in PvP.

Dwarf

The Dwarf's Stoneform is a serious asset in PvP, especially against Rogues. Frost Resistance is also great against your nemesis: the Frost Mage.

WoW Classic: Race Tier List

World of Warcraft: Classic has a number of races to choose from, and making that choice has long-term consequences. You don't want to regret your choice later, so we've broken down the races in our tier list for WoW: Classic.

Professions

Mining

If you follow our advice in choosing your professions, then Mining is an excellent option. With either Engineering or Blacksmithing you become almost self-sufficient. It is also an excellent source of income via the Auction House.

Engineering

The Engineering profession is the best choice by default as it's great both in PvE and PvP. From Goblin Sapper Charge and the Arcanite Dragonling to the Dense Dynamites, this profession will always be useful!

Blacksmithing

The real use of Blacksmithing, besides whetstones (such as Heavy Sharpening Stones), is when you kill extremely rare and powerful bosses to loot plans. Among others, the Lionheart Helm or the Arcanite Reaper, are especially worth it.

WoW Classic: Profession Tier List

World of Warcraft: Classic has a number of professions to choose from, from crafting armour with Blacksmithing and Leatherworking to farming materials with Herbalism and Minning. With something for everyone, here is our Classic Profession tier list.

Macros

Note: While many macros exist, we've just listed those that we think are crucial for Warriors of all levels of play — therefore this list is not extensive.

Charge in Battle Stance or Intercept

Causes you to cast Charge in Battle Stance if you are not in combat. If you are, cast Berserker Stance then Intercept.

/ texture script, name, isActive, isCastable = GetShapeshiftFormInfo (1); if isActive then CastSpellByName ("Charge (Rank 3)"); else CastSpellByName ("Combat Stance ()"); end;

Charge in Defensive Stance or Intercept

You Charge in Defensive Stance if you're not in combat. If you are, cast Berserker Stance then Intercept.

/ texture script, name, isActive, isCastable = GetShapeshiftFormInfo (2); if isActive then CastSpellByName ("Intercept (Rank 3)"); else CastSpellByName ("Defensive Stance ()"); end;

Intercept in Berserker Stance or Charge

You cast Intercept and Berserker Stance if you are in combat. If you are not, then cast Combat Stance and Charge.

/ texture script, name, isActive, isCastable = GetShapeshiftFormInfo (3); if isActive then CastSpellByName ("Intercept (Rank 3)"); else CastSpellByName ("Defensive Stance ()"); end;

WoW Classic: Spec Tier List for PVP and PVE

With World of Warcraft: Classic comes with 27 specs in total, with an extra spec thrown in via Bear tanks. If you want to heal, tank or DPS in PvE or PvP content, our tier list is for you.
