INTRO


The Fury Discipline is the third of 3 available paths for the Sith Marauder Class. It provides great Burst damage as well as strong Single Target and AoE sustained Damage Dealing. Offers good survivability and free mobility. Because it is considered a bit more advanced discipline and its best perks are earned at higher levels, it isn’t the best discipline for leveling (Combat is). However, it’s strong enough to allow players with even little to no experience to journey through the 70 levels of story missions and anything else on the side.


What is Fury Good For

Sith Marauder FURY 5.0 Guide - SKORKS figureThe playstyle involves a large number of abilities and has a good amount of Burst in the opener. The spec is suitable for both single and multi target damage dealing. While it performs slightly worse than Annihilation and Carnage on a single target, the AoE potential hidden inside Fury is incredible. Fury these days is mainly preferred for PvP as it offers great mobility and immunity to crowd control, while also performing very well on the offensive side. It’s still perfectly valid for PvE, as you are about to find out by reading the rest of the guide. There’s an ongoing argument that in 5.0 Fury may be even better at AoE than Carnage. I personally don’t believe that. Fury requires more time, abilities and awareness to perform to its best in AoE environment than Carnage and it’s not even doing better DPS. What it does better than Combat is deliver very high amount of damage with only 1 AoE attack, which helps in leveling and PvP. In the first case mobs are weak enough that most would just die from 1 such attack and in PvP nobody stays still just waiting for you to hit them multiple times.

If played to the best of its abilities, Fury is almost on par with the highest parsing disciplines in the game, currently. It does not have a specific rotation (well, you could use one, but it would ONLY be viable for the Ops Dummy). Depending on what purpose you want the discipline to serve, it can outperform the other 2, but that would require knowledge, practice and skills. We are going to go through as many tips and suggestions together during this detailed guide.

My personal recommendation for leveling marauders is to avoid the Fury spec. Its potential starts to show at much later levels. Not that you will have any real trouble leveling with it, just Carnage (my favorite for low levels) offers better tools for faster and smoother progress through the planets. If you really enjoy Fury from the very beginning, there’s nothing to stop you from using it.


Changes in Patch 5.0

With Knights of the Eternal Throne and Patch 5.0 the Fury spec was not changed significantly. Some of them I covered in this post as well as in my Class Changes Overview Video, based on the Developer Blogs.

  • Ravage: This is now an instantly activated ability to help add more mobility to the Marauder.
  • Ruthless Aggressor: Vicious Throw refunds 2 rage on targets affected by your Obfuscate. Additionally, Vicious Throw is usable on targets affected by your Obfuscate, regardless of remaining health. Obfuscate also grants Ruthless Aggressor, increasing Force and tech defense by 75% for 6 seconds.
  • Hidden Savagery: While Force Camouflage is active, you gain a charge of Hidden Savagery every 0.5 seconds. Each charge of Hidden Savagery increases the damage dealt by your next melee attack by 4%. Stacks up to 12 charges and lasts for up to 6 seconds after exiting Force Camouflage.
  • Interloper: Force Charge grants Interloper, allowing you to activate Force Charge a second time. Interloper lasts up to 7.5 seconds and is removed if Force Charge is reused. If Interloper is not utilized by the end of its duration, Force Charge is placed on a 7.5 second cooldown. Additionally, Force Charge now builds 2 Fury.

Changes in Patch 5.4

The only change Bioware is introducing with this Game Update is a buff to the passive ability Bloody Slashes (earned automatically from the Discipline tree at lvl 68). Here is the exact text of the change from Bioware’s announcement:

  • Increased the damage done by Bloody Slashes by 35%.

Reason for changing:

The Fury discipline only needed a small boost to bring it up to its target DPS, so increasing the damage dealt by Bloody Slashes was all it took to do the trick.

This change does not alter the abilities priorities in any way. The gameplay style of the Fury Discipline remains unchanged.
