View Full Version : DPS Fury Warrior DPS Help

04-01-2011, 06:07 AM
Alright guys. So I've been reading up a bunch of stuff on fury warriors trying to improve my DPS that way however, with the gear I currently have I'm pretty sure I'm still under dpsing and I'm not sure why. I know I'm missing a few enchants and am going to socket strength a bit better, however, I still feel that my dps should be higher than what it is given my current gear.

When I hit up the training dummies I average a little under 12k dps. I am using the CS>BT>RB>BT rotation with a GCD thrown in there when I get through my bt rb bt rotation. I try and fit in as much as i can in the 6s after CS as well. On raid bosses I can't hit up recklessness and deathwish at the same time due to out threating the tank, however on the dummy this still does not seem to increase my dps signficantly. I'm pulling in a bit over 13k when I hit up my trinkets and CDs.

So I'm wondering if there's any advice you can give which may result in a dps gain because it's somewhat aggravating given that I'm decently geared and still pulling mediocre numbers in raids. Included below are my armory link and a link of my guild's Wednesday night raiding. I'm Artoriusboo.

Looks to me like you are far below the hit and expertise cap...this could be your issue.

you aren't stacking your cooldowns, which is a fairly significant DPS loss. you also aren't using slam at all. your VnT parse showed you doing 0 damage with slam, that's a massive DPS loss right there.

Ah okay the slam could def be it. For whatever reason that was getting out of my rotation cause I changed up my ui look and it wasn't showing me the bloodsurge procs but I've changed that up. As for the hit and exp cap, isn't it 8% and 26 expertise which I'm at for both since wow armory doesn't take into account the +3 to hit that fury gets?

Yes it is 8% for hit but they fixed the issue where your static talent generated stats weren't adding into your totals. So your actually at 2.33 hit without the buff from your spec. So if you bring your total hit on your character sheet to 8% you will be at the correct value and see a huge increase in dps.

Ah that's odd, cause when I'm looking in game it says I'm at 8% hit. Plus when I look at other top fury dpsers from WoL I'm seeing around the same hit that I have on the armory.

Armory does NOT show the 3% hit from Fury's Precsion. Your armory target is 5%+


I am 8% in game.

That explains so much, I was wondering why I missing so many of my attacks when I thought I was maxed out in hit.

Hegas - as Fury (2 handed) the miss chance for white attacks is 27%, for yellow attacks it's 8%.

At 8% hit your yellow's won't miss (dodge and parry depend on placement and expertise), but your white melee attack still have a 19% chance to miss.

No Fury is going to stack to 27% hit, that's simply too much crit/mastery lost. So those white attacks will still miss.

And the 8% is 5% from gear, 3% from the precision bonus of the Fury tree.

Huh I was unaware that the talents didnt show on armory, lol learn something everyday I guess.

It's probably not the best design (maybe just an oversight). The best way to check, is open your armory, check your hit, then log in. You'll see in game it's 3% higher.
