Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Single Target: Strength > Haste > Mastery > Crit => Vers

AoE: Strength > Crit > Mastery > Vers => Haste

Stat Outline

Critical Strike: Gives a chance to deal double the damage with abilities. The only specific interaction Fury has with this stat is from the Cold Steel, Hot Blood talent causing Bloodthirst crits to apply a DoT.

Haste: Reduces the cooldown of Bloodthirst, Raging Blow and Execute. Additionally this stat will reduce the global cooldown (GCD) and increase your auto attack speed.

Mastery: Provides a % damage increase while under the effects of Enrage.

Versatility: Provides a flat % damage dealt increase and damage taken reduction.

The best way to calculate stat priorities for your character is to "sim" your character

Races

Horde: Troll

Alliance: Gnome

For the most part, choice of race is the least important factor to your DPS. Historically for Warrior, most races are within 1% DPS of each other. Unless you are competing at the absolute top level, changing race is usually unnecessary.

Enchants

Cloak: Graceful Avoidance

Chest: Waking Stats

Bracers: Avoidance

Legs: Fierce Armor Kit

Boots: Plainsrunner’s Breeze

Ring: (decision to be made by your current stats on gear) 

  • ST-Haste/Mastery
  • AoE-Crit/Mastery

Weapons:

Gems

Gems have been changed to now include 2 stats in each gem as well as the reintroduction of Primary Stat gems. Only 1 primary stat gem can be used but it does carry the most significance.

Gems you should be using will regularly change based on your gear at the time. I recommend using a simulation tool like Raidbots in order to use the best gems possible.

As a basic framework:

Single Target

  • Primary Gem: Strength + Haste
  • Other Gems: Mastery + Haste

AoE/M+

  • Primary Gem: Strength + Crit
  • Other Gems: Mastery + Crit

Consumables

Similar to Gems, personal food has also been changed to provide 2 stats with 1 piece of food. Feasts still only provide primary stat.

Food: Always use a Feast if provided.

ST Personal Food: Sizzling Seafood Medley (Haste + Mastery)

M+ Personal Food: Thousandbone Tongueslicer (Crit + Mastery)
