Lost DPS Fury Warrior needs some advice on gear, stats, gems & rotation
I appreciate the fact that this thread exists and allows us to ask for help as personally I just don't know where to turn to for some honest and useful comments about my gear.
I have linked my armory page to my first ever character, level 80, fury dps warrior.
As I am still relatively new to wow, I am still learning a lot about this and am open to all comments :p
I read constantly that Armor Penetration is the way to go for a fury warrior so i've been gemming a max for this. I don't yet have the best gear as I have not yet started raiding as much as I would like to so it is mainly through frost emblems, instance drops & some made items that I have geared my warrior.
My stats are :
Speed 3.26 (Haste rating 142)
Hit 437 (13.33%)
ArP 878 (62.73%)
I see so many different figures out there about the ratings I should be aiming for and soft/hard cap (which to be honest I don't quite understand what that means). I do not know what my stats should be for a good dps fury warrior.
My DPS is not great so I am definitely going wrong somewhere....
Rotation is : WW - BT - Slam - BT - Heroic Strike or Cleave (if rage is generally over 70) - WW - BT etc etc
I use Victory Rush when it is up and Execute towards the end of a fight to replace slam
I save Recklessness & Death Wish for the long fights or boss's.
Sometimes I can get up to 5K dps in a fight but that is rare and generally in an instance I will be at around 3.4K DPS. ICC is higher but never much more than 4.6K.
Others with much lower gear than me are hitting easily 5/6K DPS and sometimes higher so I need to know where I am going wrong and what my priority changes are to be.
I am now thinking of changing the ArP gems back to Strength but due to the cost would like some feedback first of all.
Thank you very much for your time, it will be greatly appreciated :p
