re: Fury Warrior (Level 85)

Fury Warrior

Stat Priority

Hit to 8%(601 unless you’re a Draenai, in which case it’s 481) > Expertise > Strength > Critical Strike Rating > Hit > Mastery and Haste
Attack Rotation

Fury warrior rotation:

Unlike nearly every other class in Cataclysm, Fury warriors do still have a rotation. Kinda. In actual fact, the “rotation” is a priority system, but it’s one that naturally fits into a rotation.

The Fury priority system is: Colossus Smash > Bloodthirst > Raging Blow > Slam with a Bloodsurge procced.

Because Bloodthirst has such a short cooldown, this means you’ll be Bloodthirsting every other GDC. As a result, you end up with a rotation like:

Bloodthirst -> Raging Blow / Colossus Smash (SEE BELOW) -> Bloodthirst -> Free (SEE BELOW) -> Bloodthirst -> Raging Blow -> Bloodthirst -> Free ->
and so on. Use Heroic Strike whenever you’re above 90 rage.
Colossus Smash: If Colossus Smash is available, use it after your next Bloodthirst. This may mean you don’t use Raging Blow – in that case, use Raging Blow in your next free slot.

Free Slot: Use Colossus Smash if it’s available. If it isn’t, use Raging Blow if that’s available. If THAT isn’t, use Slam if you’ve had a Bloodsurge proc. If none of those are available, wait for Bloodthirst and carry on the rotation, or use Execute if the boss is below 20%.

Execute: When the boss goes below 20%, use Execute until you have 5 stacks of the Executioner buff. From then, only use it if you have an empty Free slot, or to refresh your Executioner stack so it doesn’t drop off.

Single Minded Fury? If you’re using Single Minded Fury (2 1-Handed weapons) rather than Titan’s Grip (2 2-Handed weapons), treat Slam/Bloodsurge procs like Colossus Strike – use them in preference to Raging Blow and delay Raging Blow if necessary. Don’t delay Colossus Smash, though. See our more detailed Single-Minded Fury rotation guide

Heroic Strike: Heroic Strike at 90 Rage is a conservative approach. Once you’re more experienced with your rotation, you can start to use it more frequently – see reader Nick’s comment below .

Multi target: Use the same rotation as above, but treat Whirlwind as even more important than Colossus Smash – delay everything except Bloodthirst for it. Cleave as often as your Rage allows – don’t worry about not having enough Rage for Raging Blow or Slam.

Cooldowns: Use Death Wish and Recklessness together if possible.

Buffs: Remember to use Battle Shout, and you need to be in Berserker Stance.
