I have to disagree with Rossi. I have played Fury my entire time. I can easily reach 19-20% hit with 22% crit, unbuffed. I am not in heroic gear, just a mix of LFR, normal and 5 man gear. With these numbers, I usually have no rage issues and find myself frequently using Heroic Strike as a rage dump. I am usually number 1 or 2 in DPS (25-30k), usually being beat by a mage or hunter. So, getting the stats to be where they need to be isnt really an issue.I looked at some of the top Warriors in the world, and many are running Fury. However, more DPS Warriors run as Arms.The warriors I know who use Arms over Fury, say they picked arms as it is easier to gear. Equipping a fury warrior is harder as the spec is gear dependent. Getting one good 2H weapon is hard but having to get 2 of them is very hard. So, I think the numbers are skewed as less people play Fury and more ArmsAlso, the fury rotation being priority based, makes it harder to master. I agree the nerfs Fury took were way over the top. The AP buff we got was neutralized by the nerfs. Cata has not been good for plate DPS. Look at the gear we have been given. Very few options. In t12, there was only one set of plate DPS shoulders, and that was the tier piece which never dropped from Major Domo lol (the pesky druid always seemed to drop). And the stats on the gear were poorly itemized. It seemed like Blizz loves haste and mastery.I get nostalgic at times remembering Wrath and how Fury was king. Go 100% ArP!

You might want to tell the LFR Reichmarshals about that one, because I haven't stepped back in with my warrior since one busybody said "Kick the fury warrior"...and I found myself back in SW. I hadn't died or screwed up or put out lousy dps, but because I was fury, that was it.
