Welcome to the SoD Phase 4 Fury Warrior DPS Guide!

This guide focuses exclusively on the Fury specialization, exploring key components such as Runes, Talent Trees, Stat Priorities, Rotations & Abilities, Best Professions, BiS (Best in Slot) items, and Race Choices. The new Rune System introduced in the Season of Discovery has enhanced the overall performance of Fury Warriors beyond their already amazing reputation, granting them new passive effects, direct damage abilities, and utility tools that elevate their play style by a considerable amount! Just like Arms Warrior, Fury Warriors experienced a massive overhaul to their runes in Phase 4 of Season of Discovery, having to change their gameplay as well.

Best Professions


Blacksmithing has long been one of the most iconic professions for Plate-wearing classes and Warriors can fully benefit from this profession. This is by far the best profession that a Warrior can pick, not only for the strong items that can be acquired during the leveling process but also thanks to the new end-game items and special epic items available with the release of the Season of Discovery.


Being known as one of the top professions in both PvE and PvP in the Classic Era, Engineering’s reputation also remains true in the Season of Discovery. It grants access to powerful bombs, various gadgets, and even specially crafted equipment that can be used to enhance your overall performance.

Best Races

Warrior is the only Class that can be picked by any race available to both factions, offering a wide variety of race/class combinations. For the Alliance, the best option for Fury Warrior is a choice between Human and Dwarf due to Sword SpecializationMace Specialization, and Stoneform. Overall, Human is the better option since the weapon skill racials directly impact the PvE performance. For the Horde, the best option is a choice between Orc and Troll due to Blood Fury and Berserking. Orc is slightly stronger since Blood Fury can be used more easier than Berserking, with the latter effect requiring you to be injured to reach its full potential.
