Tier Set

  • 2 piece: Every 175 Fury you spend, gain Seething Fury, increasing your Agility by 10% for 6 seconds.
  • 4 piece: Each time you gain Seething Fury, gain 15 Fury and the damage of your next Eye Beam is increased by 15%, stacking up to 5 times.

Why it’s important to Sim yourself:

There are a lot of variables when it comes to gear in World of Warcraft and it makes it almost impossible to tell you exactly what the best combination of gear pieces is, which is why I will always recommend running a simulation of your own character. This can easily be done with https://www.raidbots.com/simbot. If you wanna maximize your characters potential it is essential that you learn to Sim yourself to take all your variables into account.


If you quickly want to figure out where you could acquire upgrades with your current gear make sure to make good use of Droptimizer: raidbots.com/simbot/droptimizer.

This feature will allow you to check which dungeons or raids will provide the best possible upgrade for you.


Elementium Pocket Anvil: Super powerful Single Target trinket for Havoc that ramps in damage through a fight and is the absolute best trinket choice for pure Single Target. However, it falls off in AoE and the item level cap is pretty low at a max of 441 item level (unless you get lucky in the vault).

Dragonfire Bomb Dispenser: Good single target choice and can be combined well with Initiate to get a higher chance of a critical hit. However, it does not scale well in AoE.

Beacon to the Beyond: A crazy high hitting single target on use trinket with a large cooldown, making it ideal for damage increase windows or fights with a lot of downtime. It up-scales slightly in AoE but is mostly useful for Single target.

Ominous Chromatic Essence: Provides a good amount of passive secondary stats of your own choice, having multiple of them in your raid increases its value by a considerable amount.

Embellishments and Crafted gear:

  1. Toxic Thorn Footwraps
  2. Lifebound Trousers (or any leather piece to apply the Toxified Armor Patch to buff your Toxic Thorn Boots)
  3. Primal Molten Warglaive
  4. Whatever is a better item level upgrade.

Gear upgrade suggestions (Flightstone/Crest usage):

Onyx Annulet
