Fury was my first addon for the MMORPG World of Warcraft. It was aimed towards Warriors and it was discontinued after Blizzard removed the ability of addons to automate the selection and use of abilities. I had great fun making it though, and it lessened the hardships of getting up at 3 AM combined with running Molten Core for the millionth time.
The following is from the readme:
This addon is an attempt at simplifying the DPS aspect of Warrior combat.
To use Fury, simply set up a key in the keybindings menu or make a macro containing /fury, and press this repeatedly when in combat. Each keypres will attempt to activate a warrior ability, running though a list with different requirements for each ability.
Fury covers the following Warrior abilities:
Furthermore it also covers the talent Tactical Mastery, the PvP Plate Gauntlets (Hamstring improvement) and the Troll racial Berserking.
The current logic being used is outlined below:
Rend (PvP only)
Disarm (PvP only)
Mortal Strike / Bloodthirst
Heroic Strike / Cleave
/fury – uses Fury
/fury help – prints help text
/fury toggle – toggles Fury
/fury debug – toggles debug mode
/fury attack – toggles the use of autoattack. Experimental.
/fury ability <name> – toggles the use of abilities. Must use correct names with capitalization, ie. Heroic Strike, Rend etc.
/fury dance <number> – sets rage allowed to be wasted when switching stance (“dancing”)
/fury rage <number> – sets maximum rage allowed when using abilities to gain rage
/fury bloodrage <number> – sets minimum percent of health required when using Bloodrage
/fury hamstring <number> – sets maximum percent of health allowed when using Hamstring on NPCs
/fury berserk – sets minimum percent of health required when using Berserk
/fury threat – enables Cleave or Heroic Strike based on current settings
/fury stance <name> – sets stance to return to after switching stance. If no stance is selected it will return to your last used one. Must use correct names with capitalization.
I’d like to give a special thanks to sarf and Trimble Epic, my two mentors who put me on the road of addon-making. Also thanks to Shears of Emerald Dream for extensive testing.
This isn’t the most recent version (I believe 1.14 is) so if someone by some weird stroke of insanity should have that, don’t hesitate sending it my way. It’s about 4 years old, so I haven’t been able to track down much about it.
