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
Patch 10.2.5 Changes
Patch 10.2.5 has changed nothing impactful for Fury Warrior aside from a new ability name.
Spear of Bastion is now called Champion’s Spear. All functionality of this ability and its follow on talents remain exactly the same as before.
Patch 10.2 Fury Warrior Changes
Patch 10.2 has included some rather big playstyle changes to Fury Warrior revolving around the Reckless Abandon talent. These include:
- Bloodbath and Bloodthirst now share a cooldown
- Reckless Abandon now grants 1 charge of Bloodbath or Crushing Blow (down from 2)
- Bloodbath and Crushing Blow damage doubled
In the previous patch, these changes wouldn’t have mattered but the new tier set has made these changes more important.
On top of the changes listed above:
- Rallying Cry health bonus reduced from 15% to 10%
- Inspiring Presence removed
- Storm of Swords Slam cooldown reduced to 9 seconds (was 12 seconds)
