Fury Warrior Tier Sets
10.2 tier set takes Fury in a very different direction from anything we’ve played so far in Dragonflight. The tier set makes Odyn’s Fury and, to some degree, Reckless Abandon mandatory.
- 2 set: Odyn’s Fury deals 50% increased damage and causes your next 3 Bloodthirsts to deal 150% increased damage and have 100% increased Crit chance against the primary target
- 4 set: Bloodthirst critical strikes reduce the cooldown of Odyn’s Fury by 1.5 seconds
With these tier sets in mind, we’re once again in a situation where Bloodbath is doing significantly more damage than any other ability.
Fury Warrior Trinkets
At the time of writing these are the best trinkets for single target:
- Cataclysmic Signet Brand
- Augury of Primal Flame (Very Rare)
- Fyrakk’s Tainted Heart (Very Rare)
Both rare trinkets are valuable with Augury being significantly RNG dependant. While Tainted Heart may be a tank trinket, its damage on use cannot be underestimated.
Special mention goes to Coiled Serpent Idol which is regularly simming quite well but in my own tests, this trinket doesn’t seem to perform how sims would suggest.
Trinkets from this seasons M+ dungeons are seemingly quite weak overall compared to their raid counterparts. That being said, Accelerating Sandglass and Spiked Countermeasure are both solid pickups if you happen to see them.
Crafted gear is still as important as ever, but our choices are very straightforward this time in terms of embellishments.
Raid: Allied Chestplate of Generosity - While this item has been nerfed recently, it’s still quite valuable, especially if you can get multiple people in your group/raid to have it crafted.
Allied Wristguard of Companionship - Very solid all round embellishment. You will almost never be in a position where you don’t have full value while hitting a trash pack or boss.
Mythic+: Frostfire Legs, and Lariat.
Frostfire Legs for M+ are still good on paper, though maybe a little weaker since we lack a lot of pack to pack damage now.
As always Lariat’s power is directly tied to number of sockets equipped. Do not consider crafting/upgrading this item until you have at least 5-6 sockets (and always SIM BEFORE YOU CRAFT).
The new crest system is incredibly powerful and can offer any player a significantly high item level within a couple of weeks of playing their character.
For the most part, consider upgrading slots that you are unlikely to replace anytime soon while also trying to focus on high-value slots, such as weapons and major armor pieces like the chest and legs.
You gain crests very quickly, so don't hold back on upgrading if you can gain a significant power boost immediately, even if you may replace that piece of gear in a week or two.
