Playstyle & Rotation

General Rotation

Use our rage spender Rampage if any of these apply:

Our other spells go in a priority like this:

  1. Recklessness
  2. Siegebreaker
  3. Execute
  4. Bladestorm if talented, and previous GCD was Rampage
  5. Bloodthirst
  6. Dragon Roar if talented, and enrage is up
  7. Raging Blow
  8. Whirlwind

If you have an unusual setup of azerite traits like Pulverizing Blows or no Cold Steel, Hot Blood then the priority will change to prioritise Raging Blow at 2 charges over Bloodthirst.


Opener using Condensed Life-Force:

Just before combat use Condensed Life-Force.

  1. Charge + Recklessness macro
  2. Siegebreaker
  3. If possible Rampage, if not Bloodthirst, and Rampage after.
  4. Continue normal rotation.

Opener with Memory of Lucid Dreams:

Just before combat use Memory of Lucid Dreams.

  1. Charge + Recklessness macro
  2. Rampage
  3. Continue normal rotation

Opener with Blood of the Enemy:

  1. Charge + Recklessness macro
  2. Siegebreaker
  3. If possible Rampage, if not Bloodthirst, and Rampage after.
  4. Blood of the Enemy
  5. Continue normal rotation.

Multi Target

Weave in Whirlwinds every third GCD so that all abilities cleave. Use your cooldowns when already having used a Whirlwind so that you are ready to cleave. Try to not delay Bloodthirst, it has very high value on multitarget because of Cold Steel, Hot Blood.


Charge for DPS

Since there is a rage gain tied to charge it is sometimes worth using during your normal DPS rotations - more commonly for Arms but sometimes it is also worth for Fury. It depends a lot on the boss you are fighting and the hitbox. Typically small bosses are easier to Charge, like Jaina for example. If you feel like it is a long walk to get out to charge, then basically never do it.

The main moments it is worthwhile for Fury is when you are about to pop cooldowns and are at low rage, you can then take a step out of melee and basically do the opener again.

If you are in a streak of bad luck I would Charge while using Whirlwind. The whirlwind will still hit the boss, and you also get rage from the charge.

Cooldown management:

If you have both Ashvane’s Razor Coral and Dribbling Inkpod then use the crit buff at 30%, other than that, use together with your Essence or if the boss is about to die.

In general your last set of cooldowns including your Essence is used either during the execute phase, or at 30% if you have a big crit buff from the trinket coming for the inkpod.
