    Down and Dirty: Gear Your Fury In LFD

    LFD Fury Gear Guide
    To start the guide aims to gear any fresh fury warrior or any tank who wants to get a set for a loldps funnight. It isnt meant for highend raiders. It lists all items from Triumph vendors down (it should have them all let me know if i missed one), Heroic and non heroics of epic Quality and Crafted items of Epic quality. Feel Free to post quick questions i watch this thread and will reply promptly. If you have big questions or lots of questions please post them all in the HALP! section.
    I will be using my own guide when i hit 80(long story of why this is necessary) and will post my results with the gear sets i acquire as i don't know what combo of gear will work best as ilevel isn't always an indicator of what is best.

    Weapons
    Vendor

    GreatSword of the Sin'dorei

    Drop:

    Tyrannical Beheader

    Edge of Ruin

    Garfrost's Two-Ton Hammer

    Mourning Malice

    Colossal Skull-Clad Cleaver

    Crafted:

    TitanSteel Destroyer

    Quest:

    Quel'Delar, Ferocity of the Scorned

    Quel'Delar Might of the Faithful

    BreakDown:
    While your best bets are 2 tyrannical beheaders gemmed ArP if you can get the Battered hilt (or if one drops) it is semi worth it to grab either of the two (they both equal out in dps dont wanna run through the math)
    i recommend getting a titansteel destroyer ASAP and work into H:ToC and gear into H:PoS and grab those axes.
    Head:
    Vendor:

    Faceplate of Thunderous Rampage

    Hellscreams's Helmet of Conquest

    Drop:

    Skeleton Lord's Cranium

    Helm of the Violent Fray

    Crafted:

    Spiked Titanstell Helm

    Breakdown: Remember how i said there were some no exception slots? Tis one of them here. the 245 triumph vendor helm is hands down the best. Any of the helms is nice to start but the BoE crafted can be bought which will put you in PoS to farm the 219 after that you can buy vendor helm for 75 triumph so farm farm farm.
    Neck:
    Vendor:

    Spiked Battlegaurd Choker

    Broach of the Wailing Night

    Drop:

    Painfully Sharp Choker

    Barbed Ymirheim Choker

    Ancient Pendant of Arathor

    Crafted:

    Titanium Impact Choker

    Breakdown: Vendor wins unfortunately, however the drop is still very good and i recommend if you are in a pinch for emblems grab the drop or the Crafted(just get the crafted to start remeber heroic que's want some 200 gear before you go in)
    Shoulders:
    Vendor:

    Shoulderplates of Trembeling Rage

    Hellscreams's Shuolderplates of Conquest

    Drops:

    Pualdrons of the Souleater

    Majestic Silversmith Shuolderplates

    No crafted

    Breakdown: the vendor ilevel 245 shoulders win hands down but, if you want your tier 9 4 piece grab the 232 vendors shoulders it is hit or miss your dps will scale fairly well with tier 9 4 piece (meh 2 peice is nicer IMO) but the 245 are BiS pre-raid and if you plan on going striaght to raids with this spec the shuolders you may lose a piece of the tier 9 breaking the set bonus and wasting your emblems
    Backs:
    Vendor:

    HammerHead Sharkskin Cloak

    Drops:

    Tapestry of the Frozen Throne

    Drape of the Undefeated

    Accursed Crawling Cape

    Crafted:

    Ice Striker's Cloak

    Breakdown: The one from normal HoR is best but the crafted is probably what you will have to buy just to be able to que for it. farm faster
    Chest:
    Vendor:

    Hellscream's Battleplate of Conquest

    Drop:

    FrostWyrm Ribcage

    Lost reliquary Chestgaurd

    Breastplate of the Imperial Joust

    Crafted:

    Titanium Razorplate

    Breakdown: The crafted is hands down the best. The best drop competes with the best vendor (your tier 9) go for the vendor but, if the drop happens to drop get it. The Crafted can be expensive or not that bad just look at mats prices and weigh it out the 232 isn't that much worse than the 245.
    Wrist:
    Vendor:

    Wristbands of the Sentinel Huntress

    Drops:

    Malykriss Vambraces

    Vambraces of Unholy Command

    Bands of the Stoneforge

    Crafted:

    Titanium Spikegaurds

    Breakdown:
    The crafted bracers are the best. hands down and it sucks (or rocks it is a matter of opinion) luckily the price has come way down. Till then there are several nice drops from heroics that actually scale up should they drop for you.
    Hands:
    Vendor:

    Hellscream's Gauntlets of Conquest

    Drops:

    Weeping Gauntlets

    Plated Grips of Korth'azz

    Gauntlets of the Stouthearted Crusader

    Gauntlets of Dragon Wrath

    No Crafted.

    Breakdown:
    Vendor meets and exceeds drop so if you have some drop for you nifty if not 30 emblems and tier 9 welfare is all yours.
    Belt:
    Vendor:

    Belt of The Singing Blade

    Drop:

    Bent Gold Belt

    Girdle of Arrogant Downfall

    Flame-Bathed Steel Girdle

    Crafted:

    Belt of the Titans

    Breakdown:

    Crafted is tied with emblem gear. The drops are nice so don't pass them up as you go but, farm emblems or gold and pick a piece to buy. The Crafted Belt has slots which are designed around older gems so point for point after epic gems it is superior. The Vendor one is a Close 2nd though so get what you can.
    Legs:
    Vendor:

    Hellscream's Legplates of Conquest

    Drop:

    Minister's Number One Legplates

    Legplates of Relentless Onslaught

    Staggering Legplates

    Crafted:

    Legplates of Painful Death

    Breakdown:

    So basically it goes crafted then tier then drops. The Crafted are ridiculous expensive though (16k on my server at the time of this writing) The tier gear is better than any drop but, Bronjahm's legs are a great drop so don't pass them up.
    Feet:
    Vendors:

    Bladed Steelboots

    Drop:

    Grinning Skull Boots

    Plated Greaves Of Providence

    Crafted:

    Hellfrozen Bonegrinders

    Battlelord's Plate Boots

    Spiked Titansteel Treads

    Breakdown: The boots from BS are BiS (but are nearly 10k gold At the time of this writing). The next best is the drop and after that is the second crafted (which cost a mere 2k off AH or 1k-1.8k if you buy the mats yourself at the time of this writing). This slot has a good amount of options just grab the ilevel 200 crafted when you ding 80 to satisfy average ilevel req’s so you may begin Queing
    Rings:

    Vendors:

    Agility Kirin Tor Rings

    Strength Kirin Tor Rings

    Bloodshed Band

    Dexterous Brightstone Ring

    Drops:

    Ring Of Carnelian and Bone

    Uruka's Band of Zeal

    Band of Stained Souls

    Hemmoraging Circle

    The Lady's Promise

    Purloined Wedding Ring

    Crafted:

    Titanium Impact Band

    Breakdown:
    Best Pre-raid is 2 Kirin-Tor rings in combo (the agility ilevel 251 and strength ilevel 251) but, if you have that much money i wuold reccomend the ICC crafted gear. The 2 Vendor Rings are an easy knockout pair but, as you farm grab some of the drops.
    Trinkets:
    Vendor:

    Mark Of Supremacy

    Mirror of Truth

    Drop:

    Banner of Victory

    Needle-Encrusted Scorpion

    Breakdown:
    The Drops are few which really puts you in a pinch, If after tons of farming you cant get any of those trinkets spend the emblems on whichever vendor helps you more( this choice relies heavily on the amount of hit you have)
    Ranged:
    Vendor:

    Crimson Star

    Lillehoff's Winged Blades

    Drops:

    Felglacier Bolter

    Papa's Brand New Knife

    Crypt Fiend Slayer

    Rimebane Rifle

    True-aim Long Rifle

    Drake-Mounted Crossbow

    Crafted:

    Nesingwary 4000

    Breakdown: The 245 Vendor one is BiS but, this isn't a huge stat dump so grab anything that drops. Preferably don't spend your emblems here till you have put something in every slot that needs them.

    Final Thoughts:
    The guide should you follow it will have you ToC10 and VoA10 ready rather Quickly. If you Really just go above and beyond and no raid Gear to BiS on every List in theory you should be ready for ToC25, VoA25, and ICC10. When i say ready i don't mean you will succeed, no fail. Your success relies on you knowing how to play your class, which in this case is a Fury Warrior. If you need Help in that Regards I shall Refer you Here.

    Best Of Luck

    not including lot of agi gear due to just having not lot of arp isn't a good idea. crit is still your friend, and agi pieces have gobs of it.

    True but for the simplicity of gearing from a LFD only i figured getting down to STR gear keeps things from getting overwhelming of course i may extend this on tuesday when the server goes down to have an ammendum for agility gear.

    Formatting is a pain, but it's critical to your guide being useful. Consider using headers and making your links the actual names of the items.

    also keep in mind that if u are gearing up thru LFD u wont be able to need on leather gear due to the need/greed/DE restrictions. sure u can hope no1 else needs it, but we have all seen pallies and shamans need roll on NES ~_~

    Ok so formatting with name links instead of url's gotcha any ideas on that. I know i can need on rings and necks that have agility, but can you do it on cloaks to? So far the feed back i am getting is:

    Format better
    Include some Agility Gear in the ring neck and back slots

    Can do. Expect changes monday or tuesday i have work and HW so my free time is all wow tonight.

    yeh you can need on agi cloaks...the need before greed thing only applies to items outside your main armor type, thats how you can need roll and any rings/cloaks/trinkets/necks.

    manually linking is the only way:
    Code:
    [URL.="http://www.wowhead.com/?item=51218"]Sanctified Ymirjar Lord's Greathelm (T10.25)[./URL]
    removing the .'s in the above line give you
    Sanctified Ymirjar Lord's Greathelm (T10.25)

    so URL="<wowheadlink>" inside of [] then name of item followed by a [/url]

    I feel this guide is as complete as i can make it as this time, i have included anything of value you can need on in LFD tool, all emblem turn-ins, (i feel i missed a few but 30 minutes on wow head didn't turn any up so tell me if i did) and all crafted Items that were plate or a back, cloak, ring, or neck. If i forgot something or need to add anything tell me. I left out frost for the point of you get so few non-raiding (2 a day) that including them would only complicate a guide that is in need of some fine tuning. Admittedly i don't know how to tune it anymore than i have now i would like to not use quote boxes as i think it looks clunky If anyone has any ideas on that please post them/pm me i will take them into account and see what i can do. Happy Dungeon Grinding Hope you don't have to farm to much

    Nice guide.

    A few comments, in general getting to 26 expertise on Fury doesn't happen without some effort (unlike getting to 5% hit). So it'd be a good idea to point out slots where you can get some easy expertise (throwing and legs both have vendored options for example) that isn't too inferior to the BiS choice (like Mourning Malice vs. Tyrannical is a no no).

    Also, I don't normally recommend this but there's a real dearth of quality back pieces to get pre-raid. And you're gonna stockpile a lot of Stone Keeper Shards running LFD, so you should consider:
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=51354 and http://www.wowhead.com/item=51356 . They are just so much higher ilvl that even with ap, stamina, res they're good pick ups.

    Also, I'm pretty sure that http://www.wowhead.com/item=37647 beats a few of the epics on your list (that how bad the existing options for cloaks are).

    I see what you are saying in terms of the wrathful but neither is well itemized for fury ( beyond the AP and Hit/crit it really breaks down into a level 78 cloak when you look at what you can actually use), that said i know on my server no alliance gets to stockpile Stonekeepers shards as horde has Winter grasp 95% of the time on Deathwing (there is some log place to check this control time but i forgot it). I dont want to put items that rent really viable to farm for in a guide about gearing fast. The cloak you linked does not fit in the scope of my guide on the grounds of epic quality. The whole goal is raid raidy for ToC10 and VoA10 and to a lesser extent their 25 man versions. No Pug elitist GS checking group (god i hate these guys i ask class and stats that's all i need) is taking anyone who has a blue piece in a slot. It is all about raid ready and you need a few slots with epics in them before it will even let you Que the back is easily one of the cheapest spots to pull this off in. I get that people didn't replace it till ulduar (was one of them) but, i wanted to keep the guide scoped in an focused on getting to at least a 219 in every slot. Also the malice is an excellent point in terms of ExP capping.

    Also it is a what drops and what is BiS players will need to gem and enchant to their necessary numbers which is why there is a link to the fury warrior guide in the top header so that they can find those.

    Well, if you're gearing out to look good, then the PvP cloak will do that.

    The blue is hands down better than Ice Strikers or the Hammerhead Cloak though. It's a fine choice to use while you grind out a better option (and will cost you less gold and no badges compared to those two).

    The PvP cloak is also better than those two as well as the ToC one. The +crit pvp cloak beats the HoR cloak too if you have a lot of hit already. I did ignore res/stamina/general poor itemization, to come to this conclusion.

    The HoR cloak has the most str out of the listed cloaks with 68 str, the PvP cloaks have 181 AP. 68 * 1.2 (imp zerker) * 1.1 (kings) * 2 = 180 ap. In other words it's a wash. Then you either get more crit on the pvp cloak or a chunk of hit on the HoR cloak (HoR will end up with more itemization points overall).

    So really, if you can't get the HoR cloak to drop, the PvP cloak is really a good option. I guess if your server doesn't cooperate stone keeper shard-wise then it might not be an option... but it certainly doesn't boil down to a lvl 78 cloak.
