Welcome to the Fury Warrior DPS guide for World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King 3.3.5a. In this guide, you will learn about playing a Fury Warrior in a raid. The guide includes Talents, Glyphs, Gems, Enchantments, BiS Gear, Add-ons, Gameplay & Skill rotation tips.

Fury Warrior Talent Tree Wow 3.3.5a

Everything marked with red is mandatory, no skipping. Green – situational.

What will you take in the tier 1-2 Arms tree is totally up to you.

Talents like Rampage or Precision are situational. Precision is useless if you have good gear with a hit cap. Rampage does not stack with other Warriors Rampage and similar effects.

Example build with Cleave:

Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.

Fury Warrior has a pretty simple combo:

Key thing here is to not interrupt your main combo (1) with Global Cooldowns from other spells


Hit -> Expertise -> Armor Penetration -> Strength -> Critical Strike Rating -> Haste

When dual wielding, the hard cap for Hit is 27%. Most Fury warriors get the soft cap – 8%, which guarantees to hit with abilities. The reason is that getting 27% would sacrifice so much valuable stats and result in damage loss. Expertise soft-cap is 26, which removes the chance of your attacks to be dodged & parried.

Armor Penetration is the primary stat of the build. The hard cap is 100% (with trinket procs). It’s important to note that Armor Penetration is more effective once stacked in higher amounts.

Strength is the core stat for Warriors, which increases the effectiveness of the abilities. In the beginning, new players will find gemming for Strength (while gathering ArP gear) to be more efficient. After getting around 50% of ArP, you can make the transition to ArP and focus on it entirely.

Critical strike rating is a secondary stat, but never the less a valuable component of your DPS. We have Impale and Deep Wounds to make critical strikes even more powerful. Crit has a hard cap of 100% (for abilities), which is unobtainable. 55% is a reasonable and obtainable amount of Crit with BiS gear, which is the cap for regular attacks (if we count using 8% Hit and 26 Expertise). Maximizing crit is something you want to focus on in later stages of the game, while gradually improving it with gear upgrades.

Haste is last on the list because it doesn’t add much value to this build. The stats mentioned above outweigh Haste by far. You are likely to encounter Haste on items if you decide to include some leather/agility items in your gear, for example – Aldriana’s Gloves of Secrecy.

what about the caps ? expertise hit ?


hit 5% it depends on your raid group,and exp 25/25


if exp be more ! what must do ??


¨Hi , i got all the items and talents from your guid but i only got 4,28 hit can ya help me


as i see You have putted in blue socket red gem 🙂 (You dont need to fix it but You can imo in blue socket You can put some AP but im not sure)


As a end game fury, you should not be picking up improved berserker rage or 5/5 Unbridled wrath.
This is the more reasonable build. you can take 1 point out of enrage and put it into Heroic fury if you wish to intercept one extra time but its not to useful if you stance dance with intervene + Intercept.


btw bis gear its not like it first trinket from icc dbs boss need have then hand from rotface the leader then legs from the set -_-

Mr Carv

As we have improved rend do i have to keep it up on target or it isnt worth it


not worth it ( wn you change stands you lose your rage and thats is very bad )


is there any pre-raid bis gear list anywhere? I am leveling fury warrior and have no clue at all what gear to get when 80 :C also what about minor glyphs? thanks !

Drunk Vader

Not really, run fos/pos,rdf hc for emblems, buy t9 and grab whatever is an upgrade. Your primary stats should be strength and crit. Hit still has highest priority, 5% or around 160, +3% from talents. You can craft some high end gear with blacksmithing, you can grab boe’s on ah if you have the gold.

Brat Columbo

Nice its works nice ! Thanks for the knowledge mate!

wow mom

what about weapon enchant?
for both berserking?
OR berserking and executioner……..

Drunk Vader

If you are arp capped (1400 armour penetration), executioner is usseles, no?


Im playing with Orc warrior and orc racial gives 5 expertise for using axes can you tell me good axes for this build. And also I like axes 😂

Drunk Vader

Shadowmourne/shadows edge. For the other, cryptmaker (mace), until u can get gloren from lk on 25. Expertise matters for tanks, as a dps, position behind enemies and they can’t dodge, parry or block.


Get piercing howl, useful in raids
e.g – LK Valkyrs


What about execution phase?


no enrage ?
