Playstyle & Rotation

    General Rotation:

    1. Crushing Blow
    2. Rampage
    3. Execute
    4. Bloodbath
    5. Raging Blow
    6. Bloodthirst
    7. Whirlwind

    Cooldowns such as Odyn’s Fury are to be used on cooldown unless there is an increased damage phase coming.

    Opener:

    1. Ravager
    2. Charge
    3. Bloodthirst
    4. Spear of Bastion
    5. Recklessness, Avatar and trinket (if you have a good on use trinket)
    6. Rampage

    Multi Target:

    1. Whirlwind (if no Whirlwind stacks)
    2. Rampage
    3. Bloodbath/Bloodthirst
    4. Execute
    5. Crushing Blow/Raging Blow
    6. Whirlwind

    Cooldowns should be either used off cooldown if in a long multi target situation (like a council fight) or held for a large AoE phase coming up.

    In M+ you will only get 1 full set of cooldowns every 2-3 packs. Ensure you have all cooldowns ready for particularly dangerous packs.

    Playstyle

    Cooldowns

    With cooldowns being a much more significant portion of Fury’s damage, it is more important than ever to use these with proper timings. This includes things such as saving them for an increased damage phase (like the Fire phase on Crawth in Algeth’ar Academy) or holding them briefly to avoid downtime if you were to be forced out of melee (like Echo of Doragosa’s Power Vacuum AoE ability in Algeth’ar Academy).

    Movement

    If you were to use your CD’s and suddenly find yourself being forced to move from melee, using Heroic Leap at the last moment and charging back when safe to minimize downtime is the best solution for your DPS. You need to be confident with your timing however, as leaping too late can still get you killed mid leap.

    Defensives

    Fury Warrior has a plethora of incredible defensive tools as well as being very passively tanky between having increased HP from wielding double 2 Handed Swords, wearing Plate Armor and having the Warpaint talent for an almost permanent 10% damage reduction. As long as you aren’t making fatal mistakes, Fury Warrior should be almost impossible to kill even without perfect defensive usage.
