Quick Fury Warrior Guide for 4.0.1
This is a very quick summary for anyone that is interested in the changes to Fury warrior in patch 4.0. This is really aimed at people that used Fury pre patch 4 and would like some quick info on how to play post patch 4!
Some of the info is obviously subject to change at anytime, but if you weren't sure how to setup your warrior after the patch it should help your dps alot.
Also see the link at the bottom for a decent video guide from which this info is based on (copied from!).
Heroic Strike>Bloodthirst>Raging Blow>Slam (slam is a bit meh, see below)
Ideally you want to use Heroic Strike all the time, this means do not rage starve yourself using Bloodthirst and Raging Blow. This mindset is the complete opposite of the Fury rotation pre patch 4.0 where you would only HS when you had excess rage.
Make sure you spam Battle Shout or Commanding Shout along with Berserker Rage as soon as they are off cooldown all the time for maxiumum rage gen meaning more Heroric Strikes.
Slam is kinda crappy right now, so you can even omit it from the rotation or only use it when you have a instant proc, are rage maxed and everything else is on cooldown!
Target below 20%? Then Execute Execute Execute! nothing else! its that good... really!
Crit into hit until you have 27% hit rating (or very close to that), then reforge the rest of your Crit in to haste. Why all the hit and haste? This helps to maximise rage gen and allow you to use Heroic Strike more often which = moar dps.
Red Socket: Strength
Yellow Socket: Stength & Haste
Blue Socket: Strength & Hit
