My name is Dan, otherwise better known as Danwarr. I have been playing Warrior as a main character since Throne of Thunder in Mists of Pandaria and have raided with Method as a Warrior player since Castle Nathria. In this guide, I will take you through how Fury Warrior is looking in Dragonflight.
Fury Warrior has forever been a consistent damage machine offering very little in terms of impactful cooldowns in favor of dealing good damage throughout a fight as long as uptime is good. Going into Dragonflight, this is changing somewhat with a much greater emphasis on stacking multiple 90 second cooldowns together, resulting in very potent burst windows. Additionally, Fury Warrior is looking rather strong from a defensive aspect with the new talent trees.
What has changed
The overhaul of the talent system has caused multiple large scale changes for all classes. More will be covered in the Talent section later.
For the first time since Legion, Fury has an increased emphasis on its cooldowns in order to do damage. Throughout BFA and Shadowlands, Fury’s damage profile has been very flat, providing solid and consistent damage without much in the way of meaningful burst windows. In Dragonflight, Fury has had its identity changed and several 90 second cooldowns have been added which, when used together, offer a rather incredible amount of burst damage in Single Target but especially in AoE.
Fury has also retained the old Venthyr Conduit, Ashen Juggernaut, from Shadowlands in the form of a talent. This helps Fury retain a decent Execute phase. However, Arms is still the leader in terms of Execute between the 2 specs.
