On this page we will be covering how Fury Warriors should prioritize their stats and we then explain why each stat is where they are in our Priority List.
- 9% Hit Chance
- Expertise (6.5%)
- Critical Strike Rating
- Strength/Attack Power
- Hit Rating
Hit Rating (9%) – Reaching 9% Hit Chance (142 Hit Rating) your special attacks will never miss. Precision helps alleviate some of this by increasing your chance to hit by 3%.
Expertise (6.5%) – Reaching 6.5% Expertise will eliminate your chance to have your attacks dodged. Your attacks may still be parried if you choose to attack an enemy from the front since bosses cannot parry attacks that come from behind. Because of this, it’s recommended that you remain behind the boss whenever possible. Keep in mind that with Weapon Mastery, this number is now reduced by 2%.
Critical Strike Rating – Increasing our Critical Strike Rating (And subsequently the Critical Strike Chance) will increase our potential damage output. With Cruelty, our Critical Strike Chance is increased by 5%.
Strength/Attack Power – Attack Power increases the amount of damage your attacks deal. While you can seek out pieces with direct Attack Power, it should be noted that Strength provides 2 points of Attack Power per point, while Attack Power provides 1 Attack Power per point.
Hit Rating (28%) – When we reach 9% Hit Chance, our special attacks will no longer miss our target. However, in order to ensure our white attacks (auto-attacks) never miss, we must achieve a total of 28% Hit Chance. Precision does help this goal slightly.
Note: In future phases, Fury Warriors may seek out pieces with Armor Penetration and Haste Rating. Armor Penetration won’t generally be found on equipment until Phase 3 comes around (For example, the Onslaught Armor Set carries Armor Penetration on it)
