In this article, we present you with various talent trees for Fury Warriors (WoW 4.3) that you can use in specific situations. We also give you pointers for customising your talent tree and adapting it to a particular boss. The other articles of our Fury Warrior guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the left.

1. Titan's Grip Versus Single-Minded Fury↑top

As a Fury Warrior, you can dual wield Two-Handed Weapons (in which case, you need to take the Titan's Grip Icon Titan's Grip 31-point talent) or dual wield One-Handed Weapons (in which case, you need to take the Single-Minded Fury Icon Single-Minded Fury 31-point talent).

Both playstyles yield very similar results and the deciding factor between one and the other should be the weapons you have available. If you have two One-Handed Weapons with an average item level higher than that of your two Two-Handed Weapons, then go for Single-Minded Fury Icon Single-Minded Fury, otherwise go for Titan's Grip Icon Titan's Grip.

2. Titan's Grip Build↑top

The following build is standard for Titan's Grip Icon Titan's Grip, Fury Warrior playstyle with Two-Handed Weapons.

3. Single-Minded Fury Build↑top

The following build is standard for Single-Minded Fury Icon Single-Minded Fury, Fury Warrior playstyle with One-Handed Weapons dual wielding.

4. Customising Your Build↑top

While the above builds will yield very good results under most circumstances, it is important to know how you can customise your talents and glyphs, to adapt your build to specific situations.

4.1. Talents

In the following image, the fixed talents have been highlighted in green, while the optional talents have been highlighted in red:

Fury Warrior Talents

4.1.1. Fixed Talents

In this section, we will explain all of the talents that you must take, explaining why they are important.

  • 2/2 Cruelty Icon Cruelty: increases the critical strike chance of Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst by 10%.
  • 3/3 Battle Trance Icon Battle Trance: your Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst critical hits have a 15% chance to cause your next ability that costs more than 5 rage to be free of rage cost.
  • 2/2 Executioner Icon Executioner: your Execute Icon Executes grant you a stacking self-buff, Executioner Icon Executioner, which increases your attack speed by 5% per stack, and stacks up to 5 times.
  • 2/2 Booming Voice Icon Booming Voice: increases the rage generation from shouts. This is a DPS gain, as Fury Warriors are in dire need of rage.
  • 1/2 Rude Interruption Icon Rude Interruption: while this talent does have a rather situational nature (it requires you to successfully interrupt a spell for it to offer you any benefit), there are no better alternatives.
  • 3/3 Flurry Icon Flurry: a 25% attack speed increase for next 3 attacks following a critical strike. An undeniable DPS increase.
  • 1/1 Death Wish Icon Death Wish: this is your essential DPS cooldown, Death Wish Icon Death Wish. It increases your damage done by 20% for 30 seconds.
  • 3/3 Enrage Icon Enrage: grants your melee attacks a small chance to increase your damage done by 10% for 9 seconds.
  • 1/1 Raging Blow Icon Raging Blow: grants you Raging Blow Icon Raging Blow, an essential ability in your rotation.
  • 1/1 Rampage Icon Rampage: increases your raid's critical strike chance by 5% (does not stack with Leader of the Pack Icon Leader of the Pack) and your own critical strike chance by a further 2%.
  • 1/1 Heroic Fury Icon Heroic Fury: grants you Heroic Fury Icon Heroic Fury, which allows you to reset the cooldown of your Intercept Icon Intercept, providing you with higher mobility and more uptime on the boss.
  • 2/2 Intensify Rage Icon Intensify Rage: reduces the cooldown of your two main DPS cooldowns, Death Wish Icon Death Wish and Recklessness Icon Recklessness.
  • 2/2 Meat Cleaver Icon Meat Cleaver: causes your Cleave Icon Cleave and Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind abilities to grant you a stacking buff, increasing the damage dealt by these abilities by 10% per stack, up to 3 stacks. It is purely an AoE talent, but there are no better single target alternatives.
  • 3/3 Bloodsurge Icon Bloodsurge: grants your Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst a 30% chance to make your next Slam (for the 10 seconds following this proc) be instant cast, cost no rage and deal 20% more damage.
  • 2/2 Skirmisher Icon Skirmisher: reduces the cooldown of your Intercept Icon Intercept and Heroic Leap Icon Heroic Leap, improving your mobility.
  • 3/3 War Academy Icon War Academy: a 15% damage increase to two of your most powerful abilities, Slam Icon Slam and Raging Blow Icon Raging Blow.
  • 2/2 Field Dressing Icon Field Dressing: this is not a DPS talent. It increases the healing you receive by 6%, and it is a very good survival talent during progression raiding. Besides, there are no other appealing DPS alternatives.
  • 3/3 Deep Wounds Icon Deep Wounds: your critical strikes cause the target to bleed for a moderate amount of damage over 6 seconds. This bleed has a near 100% uptime and makes up a good portion of your DPS.
  • 2/3 Incite Icon Incite: increases the critical strike chance of your Heroic Strike Icon Heroic Strike by 10% and gives you a 66% chance for your Heroic Strike critical hits to cause the following Heroic Strike to be a critical hit (this second critical hit cannot re-trigger the effect).

4.1.2. Optional Talents

Firstly, you will have to choose between Titan's Grip Icon Titan's Grip and Single-Minded Fury Icon Single-Minded Fury for your 31-point talent. Check the section at the start of the guide to see which one fits you best (to summarise, choose the one which you have better weapons for). The two talents are not mutually exclusive, but they cannot be made use of at the same time, so you should not take both.

Secondly, you will have to choose to place your floating talent point in either 2/2 Rude Interruption Icon Rude Interruption (which only grants you a potentially better uptime on the 5% damage increase buff) or in Piercing Howl Icon Piercing Howl (grants you Piercing Howl Icon Piercing Howl, allowing you to kite adds).

4.1.3. 2-Part Tier 12 Set Bonus and Booming Voice

The 2-Part Tier 12 set bonus has an interesting interaction with the Booming Voice Icon Booming Voice talent. The set bonus grants you 10% increased damage for the 12 seconds following your use of either Battle Shout Icon Battle Shout and Commanding Shout Icon Commanding Shout. Booming Voice Icon Booming Voice reduces the cooldown of your shouts. Therefore, the duration of the set bonus effect is automatically adjusted, based on how many points you have in Booming Voice (2, 1 or none), so that the overall uptime remains the same.

Having 2/2 in Booming Voice Icon Booming Voice reduces the buff to 6 seconds, and 1/2 makes it 9 seconds. In order to maximise the benefit of this buff (by having it active for the entire 6 second duration of a Colossus Smash Icon Colossus Smash), we advise you to only use 1/2 Booming Voice Icon Booming Voice. The remaining talent point can be placed in Piercing Howl Icon Piercing Howl, allowing you to always retain 2/2 Rude Interruption Icon Rude Interruption.

4.2. Glyphs

4.2.1. Prime Glyphs

The choice for Prime Glyphs, as a Fury Warrior, is extremely simple. The following three glyphs are the only ones that provide a DPS increase:

4.3. Major Glyphs

The only mandatory Major Glyph is Glyph of Cleaving, which you need for multiple target DPS. For single target DPS, there are no really useful Major Glyphs.

Below, we list the benefits of each glyph; it is up to you to decide what you need most, based on your raid composition and the encounter you are facing.

4.4. Minor Glyphs
