Marauder Fury Basics Guide

Fury

The dark side can be a powerful ally when one channels their inner fury, and no one knows this better than the Fury Marauder. Faced with one opponent or many, the Fury Marauder strikes with raging bursts of power while maintain a balanced stance that offers protection against the enemy’s attempts at obliteration.

  • Role: Damage
  • Type: Hybrid Burst Damage and Damage Over time
  • Weapon: Double Lightsabers
  • Distance: Melee Range
  • Mirror: Sentinel – Concentration

Fury for New Players

  • Marauders start without any Rage, which is their energy pool for attacks. This might make them harder to learn compared to other classes that start with a full bar of energy, as you need to learn how to build your Rage up before you can use some of your other abilities. It’s easy to build Rage, but you can’t button mash.
  • This discipline is very mobile and you can easily run and jump around while fighting without any issues!
  • Fury is melee range, which means you must be very close to your enemy to attack, which can be harder for new players to get used to. You do get a long-range and a short-range jump ability to help you get into combat quicker.
  •  Of the three Marauder disciplines, I found Fury to be the hardest to learn, as their need to gain Rage  is the most difficult to manage of the three. Luckily, there’s an 11-ability rotation you can memorize that will walk you through the difficulty of managing your Rage! I highly recommend looking up a guide while learning this class at a high level.

How to play a Fury Marauder

You can start playing Fury at level 1. To start playing Fury, you will need to first create a Marauder character, which can be played by Sith Warriors and Sith Inquisitors (or even the Jedi Knight and Jedi Consular if you unlock the dark-side Combat Styles.)

Once you are ingame, press K on your keyboard to open the Combat Style tab, and choose Fury from the three options. This choice is not permanent, you will be able to switch between all three options by finding a rest location like a cantina.

Below Level 80

Below Level 80

If you are below level 80, there are no true guides available to tell you what specific abilities you should be using, because the ideal rotation would change every level.

Instead, you can use this guide to figure out which of your abilities are attacks, which are defensive, and which are just useful.

Level 80

“5 Ability” Basic Rotation

Fury Marauder is one of the more complicated Disciplines in the game – we couldn’t easily boil it down to 5 abilities, but there is a very easy rotation available that allows you to do high damage with minimal knowledge or skill about this class!

Starting the Fight

  •  If you can, use your Channel Hatred regeneration ability before the fight starts, allowing you to use Berserk right away.
  •  If you don’t have time to use Channel Hatred, use Frenzy instead which does the same thing.
  •  Always jump into the fight with Force Charge, as it will also help you build Rage, which is your energy, so you can use your other abilities.

Rotation

Make sure to start off with Channel Hatred/Frenzy and a Force Charge!

Force Crush – Raging Burst – Berserk – Furious Strike – Force Scream – Obliterate – Ravage – Vicious Slash – Raging Burst – Furious Strike – Vicious Slash – Obliterate – Vicious Slash

And if you make a mistake and run out of Rage, use your Battering Assault ability to regain Rage.

I set the rotation up like this on my Quickbars so I could simply use them in order:

There are multiple variations of this rotation posted by player Duffie in the SWTOR Theorycrafter’s Discord! This is the simplest one, and even the more complicated versions are fairly easy to learn and memorize if you are ok memorizing many abilities in a row.

What are these abilities?

  •  Force Crush is a low damage attack, but it makes another one of your abilities, Raging Burst do more damage and cost no Rage.
  •  Raging Burst is one of your heavy hitters, and gets even stronger if you use Force Crush first.
  •  Furious Strike is your heaviest hitter, and it’ll be important to use this right after Raging Burst to make it even stronger
  •  Obliterate will also buff Raging Burst, and should be used regularly to do so.
  •  Force Scream is another attack.
  •  Ravage and Vicious Slash are great fillers to use when the main stuff is on cooldown, as Fury both gives them additional buffs to their damage that the other disciplines don’t have.
  •  Berserk generates rage to keep your rotation going. Use it every time it glows.

More than 3 Enemies

  •  Smash is a great Area Damage attack to use on multiple targets and benefits from Destruction. Use it like you would use Raging Burst.
  •  Dual Saber Throw is an attack that will damage all targets in a line 30m long, with the angle depending on your main target you start the throw at. Line it up to hit as many as possible!
  •  If you still need more area damage, Sweeping Slash is a spam-able attack.

Extra Tips

  •  Feeling Spicy? Bloodthirst boosts your damage for 10 seconds – but it will steal the “30 stacks of Fury” you need to cast Berserk if you aren’t careful. You can use it easily in the beginning of the fight by using your Regeneration ability before the fight starts, which will make Bloodthirst useable right away, and then you can use Frenzy which will give you 30 stacks for free, allowing you to use Berserk.
  •  Vicious Throw can be used once your enemy is below 30% health, and does more damage than your normal filler attack. You can use it in place of Vicious Slash when it’s available.

Useful Abilities

These abilities may not be directly for attacking, but they are used heavily by skilled Marauders in combat to turn the tide of a fight.

  • Force Charge - Leap - Jump to a faraway enemy.Level 1
  • Channel Hatred - Regeneration - Regain health out of battle.Level 1
  • Unleash - Stun Break - If you are stunned and can’t move, you can use this ability to unstun yourself.Level 10
  • Disruption - Interrupt - Every class has an interrupt ability that allows them to interrupt an enemy while they are casting. Enemy castbars that fill up from left to right are called casts and can be interrupted and the ability will be stopped, but castbars that go from right to left deal damage the entire time they are channeling. Using your interrupt in combat is very useful as it can prevent the enemy from damaging you, or sometimes even prevent them from stunning you or knocking you back!Level 19
  • Force Camouflage - Stealth - Enter Stealth to sneak around or sneak up to enemies. Stronger enemies can see you coming, but you can sneak past weaker ones. You can only enter Stealth when you are outside of combat unless you use your Combat Stealth ability.Level 31
  • Obliterate - Leap - Jump to a faraway enemy.Level 35
  • Force Choke - Optional Stun Level 68 Option 1/3 - You can use your short stun on weaker enemies to stop them from running around, from casting abilities, to stop them from damaging you, or just to keep them out of the fight in general.Level 68
  • Mad Dash - Optional Movement Level 68 Option 2/3 - Quickly rush forward 20 meters, dealing weapon damage to enemies in your path and increasing your defense chance by 100% while dashing. Can be used while immobilized and purges movement-impairing effects when activated.Level 68

Tree Choices

As you level up, you will be able to make choices about how you play your Fury Marauder with the Ability Tree, which can be opened with the K key on your keyboard. If you do not choose one, a default option will be chosen for you.

You will have eight choices to make as you level up, at levels 23, 27, 39, 43, 51, 64, 68 and 73. All of these Ability Tree choices are not permanent choices and can be changed later. If you are following a Level 80 guide on how to play your Fury Marauder, you will need to make sure to choose the same options as they have. You may not have the same choices chosen as a friend who is also playing a Fury Marauder.

Level 23 Choice: Raging Burst Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Raging Burst to change at level 23. Your options are Subjugate, Dark Synergy, and Unrelenting Rage.

Raging Burst

Blasts the enemy target with a powerful burst of Force energy, dealing kinetic damage.

Subjugate

Raging Burst unleashes a burst of energy around the primary target dealing kinetic damage to nearby enemies.

Raging Burst unleashes a burst of energy around the primary target dealing kinetic damage to nearby enemies.

Dark Synergy

Dealing damage with Raging Burst or Smash increases your critical hit chance and critical hit damage by 15% for 6 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once very 8 seconds.

Dealing damage with Raging Burst or Smash increases your critical hit chance and critical hit damage by 15% for 6 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once very 8 seconds.

Unrelenting Rage

Raging Burst deals 15% more damage and applies Trauma to targets. Trauma reduces the healing received by 20% for 10 seconds.

Raging Burst deals 15% more damage and applies Trauma to targets. Trauma reduces the healing received by 20% for 10 seconds.

General Suggestion: Dark Synergy - Start off with this buff and make sure your heaviest attacks (Furious Strike, obliterate, Force Scream/Ravage) are falling into this increased critical window for massive damage. Best choice in the iter.

Level 27 Choice

Choose from one of three Marauder abilities at Level 27, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Fury Marauder for the Level 27 choice are Snaring Slash, Overwhelming Slashes, and Predation.

Snaring Slash

Vicious Slash, Massacre and Ravage slow targets they hit by 50% for 10 seconds.

Vicious Slash, Massacre and Ravage slow targets they hit by 50% for 10 seconds.

Overwhelming Slashes

Ravage immobilizes the target for 3 seconds and generates 1 rage.

Ravage immobilizes the target for 3 seconds and generates 1 rage.

Predation

Applies Predation to you and your group members within 40 meters, increasing movement speed by 80%, melee and ranged defense by 10%, and purges movement-impairing effects. Lasts 10 seconds.

Applies Predation to you and your group members within 40 meters, increasing movement speed by 80%, melee and ranged defense by 10%, and purges movement-impairing effects. Lasts 10 seconds.

Solo Suggestion: Predation - Predation is an extremely useful speed boost and slight defensive ability, and since nobody can take it for you when playing solo, you must take it yourself!

Flashpoint Suggestion: Predation - Predation is an extremely useful speed boost and slight defensive ability, This is a great buff to share with your group members during movement-heavy fights or just for going from point A to point B faster. Only consider a different choice if someone else is already using Transcendence/Predation.

Operation Suggestion: Predation - Predation is an extremely useful speed boost and slight defensive ability, This is a great buff to share with your group members during movement-heavy fights or just for going from point A to point B faster. Only consider a different choice if someone else is already using Transcendence/Predation.

Level 39 Choice: Obliterate Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Obliterate to change at level 39. Your options are Seething Defense, Furious Discovery, and Obliteration.

Obliterate

Jumps to a target, dealing weapon damage and immobilizing it for 1 second. Can be used while immobilized. Strikes with both weapons if dual wielding.

Seething Defense

Activating Obliterate puts a mini ward on yourself, which absorbs damage. Lasts up to 10 seconds.

Furious Discovery

Activating Obliterate builds an additional 6 Fury.

Obliteration

Killing an enemy within 3 seconds of dealing damage with Obliterate resets the cooldown of Obliterate, Smash, and Raging Burst and increases their damage by 25% for 6 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 6 seconds.

Killing an enemy within 3 seconds of dealing damage with Obliterate resets the cooldown of Obliterate, Smash, and Raging Burst and increases their damage by 25% for 6 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 6 seconds.

General Suggestion: Furious Discovery - This buff to obliterate is pretty important to make the Fury rotation flow smoothly. Without it you may not be hitting Berserk at the right time to line up witth your heavy hitting attacks, so take this for sure.

Level 43 Choice

Choose from one of three Marauder abilities at Level 43, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Fury Marauder for the Level 43 choice are Furious Power, Criticality, and Furious Rumination.

Furious Power

Consumes all ability charges of Furious Power and applies that many Furious Power stacks to you for 15 seconds. Each stack increases your next direct single target melee attack by 25% and is consumed whenever you deal damage with these attacks. Recharges 1 ability charge every 15 seconds to a maximum of 4 charges.

Each time you deal damage with a Force-based kinetic or energy attack, you generate 1 rage. Activating Berserk causes your next direct damage attack to critically hit.

Each time you deal damage with a Force-based kinetic or energy attack, you generate 1 rage. Activating Berserk causes your next direct damage attack to critically hit.

General Suggestion: Furious Rumination - So long as you make sure that Berserk is activating as you're hitting Furious Strike for the biggest guaranteed critical attack, this choice will always be the biggest damage boost. Criticality could be fairly competitive if you are messing up the timing often.

Level 51 Choice

Choose from one of three Marauder abilities at Level 51, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Fury Marauder for the Level 51 choice are Inexorable, Interloper, and Gravity Vortex.

Inexorable

You generate 4 rage when stunned, immobilized, put to sleep, or knocked around. Additionally, the cooldown of Unleash is reduced by 30 seconds.

Interloper

Force Charge gets an additional charge and builds 2 Fury when activated.

Gravity Vortex

Force Crush triggers Gravity Vortex, granting immunity to interrupts and all controlling effects and reducing damage taken from area effects by 15% for 6 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once every 30 seconds.

Force Crush triggers Gravity Vortex, granting immunity to interrupts and all controlling effects and reducing damage taken from area effects by 15% for 6 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once every 30 seconds.

General Suggestion: Gravity Vortex - Flat area reduction on DPS disciplines is by far the easiest way to keep them alive. Can't afford to miss this choice!

Level 64 Choice

Choose from one of three Marauder abilities at Level 64, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Fury Marauder for the Level 64 choice are Cloak of Retribution, Path Carver, and Blood Ward.

Cloak of Retribution

Each use of Assault and Battering Assault reduces the active cooldown of Cloak of Pain by 3 seconds. While Cloak of Pain is active, it generates 1 rage whenever you are attacked. This effect cannot occur more than once every 2 seconds.

Each use of Assault and Battering Assault reduces the active cooldown of Cloak of Pain by 3 seconds. While Cloak of Pain is active, it generates 1 rage whenever you are attacked. This effect cannot occur more than once every 2 seconds.

Path Carver

Sweeping Slash deals 15% more damage.

Sweeping Slash deals 15% more damage.

Blood Ward

Activating Saber Ward grants immunity to stun, sleep, lift, and incapacitating effects for 6 seconds, and getting attacked while Saber Ward is active heals you for 3% of your maxiumum health. This healing effect cannot occur more than once every second.

Activating Saber Ward grants immunity to stun, sleep, lift, and incapacitating effects for 6 seconds, and getting attacked while Saber Ward is active heals you for 3% of your maxiumum health. This healing effect cannot occur more than once every second.

General Suggestion: Blood Ward - Blood Ward is a great defensive as it kind of turns Saber Ward into a mini-Enraged Defense with the heal per attack component. Cloak of Retribution would be a nice option for extra Rage generation if needed (shouldnt need it, though).

Level 68 Choice

Choose from one of three Marauder abilities at Level 68, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Fury Marauder for the Level 68 choice are Force Choke, Mad Dash, and Undying Rage.

Force Choke

Chokes the target, stunning it for 4 seconds and generating moderate threat. Deals kinetic damage and builds 3 rage over the duration. This ability can be channeled while moving.

You can use your short stun on weaker enemies to stop them from running around, from casting abilities, to stop them from damaging you, or just to keep them out of the fight in general.

Mad Dash

Quickly rush forward 20 meters, dealing weapon damage to enemies in your path and increasing your defense chance by 100% while dashing. Can be used while immobilized and purges movement-impairing effects when activated.

Quickly rush forward 20 meters, dealing weapon damage to enemies in your path and increasing your defense chance by 100% while dashing. Can be used while immobilized and purges movement-impairing effects when activated.

Undying Rage

Reduces the damage you take by 99% for 6 seconds.

Reduces the damage you take by 99% for 6 seconds.

General Suggestion: Undying Rage - 6 seconds may not sound like a lot of time but taking virtually no damage for that long can be the difference between clearing a hard piece of content in the game and dying. Make a habit of using it quickly if you see you suddenly get aggro. For content where the target is susceptible to stuns, Force Choke can serve as an extra interrupt and Mad Dash is a great additional movement ability, but if those aren't needed definitely keep Undying Rage as your default skill.

Level 73 Choice

Choose from one of three Marauder abilities at Level 73, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Fury Marauder for the Level 73 choice are Thirst for Rage, Interceptor, and Brazen.

Thirst for Rage

Bloodthirst generates 12 rage when activated, and you heal for 1% of your maximum health whenever you activate an ability that consumes rage.

Bloodthirst generates 12 rage when activated, and you heal for 1% of your maximum health whenever you activate an ability that consumes rage.

Interceptor

Force Charge, Force Rend, Devastating Blast, and Obliterate snare the target, reducing its movement speed by 50% for 6 seconds.

Force Charge, Force Rend, Devastating Blast, and Obliterate snare the target, reducing its movement speed by 50% for 6 seconds.

Brazen

Increases your damage reduction by 2%, and you build 2 Fury when attacked. This Fury building effect cannot occur more than once every 1.5 seconds.

Increases your damage reduction by 2%, and you build 2 Fury when attacked. This Fury building effect cannot occur more than once every 1.5 seconds.

General Suggestion: Thirst for Rage - Even if you're forgetting to use Bloodthirst in most content, the passive 1% heal every time you use a Rage spender alone makes this choice the best in the tier. Default to this for sure.

Solo Suggestion: Predation is an extremely useful speed boost and slight defensive ability, and since nobody can take it for you when playing solo, you must take it yourself!

Flashpoint Suggestion: Predation is an extremely useful speed boost and slight defensive ability, This is a great buff to share with your group members during movement-heavy fights or just for going from point A to point B faster. Only consider a different choice if someone else is already using Transcendence/Predation.

LvL39
Furious DiscoveryOptional Passive Level 39 Option 2/3

Activating Obliterate builds an additional 6 Fury.

Activating Obliterate builds an additional 6 Fury.

General Suggestion: This buff to obliterate is pretty important to make the Fury rotation flow smoothly. Without it you may not be hitting Berserk at the right time to line up witth your heavy hitting attacks, so take this for sure.

Each time you deal damage with a Force-based kinetic or energy attack, you generate 1 rage. Activating Berserk causes your next direct damage attack to critically hit.

General Suggestion: So long as you make sure that Berserk is activating as you're hitting Furious Strike for the biggest guaranteed critical attack, this choice will always be the biggest damage boost. Criticality could be fairly competitive if you are messing up the timing often.

LvL47

Activating Saber Ward grants immunity to stun, sleep, lift, and incapacitating effects for 6 seconds, and getting attacked while Saber Ward is active heals you for 3% of your maxiumum health. This healing effect cannot occur more than once every second.

General Suggestion: Blood Ward is a great defensive as it kind of turns Saber Ward into a mini-Enraged Defense with the heal per attack component. Cloak of Retribution would be a nice option for extra Rage generation if needed (shouldnt need it, though).

LvL68
Force ChokeOptional Stun 10m (short range) Level 68 Option 1/3

Chokes the target, stunning it for 4 seconds and generating moderate threat. Deals kinetic damage and builds 3 rage over the duration. This ability can be channeled while moving.

LvL68
Undying RageOptional Defensive Level 68 Option 3/3

Reduces the damage you take by 99% for 6 seconds.

Reduces the damage you take by 99% for 6 seconds.

General Suggestion: 6 seconds may not sound like a lot of time but taking virtually no damage for that long can be the difference between clearing a hard piece of content in the game and dying. Make a habit of using it quickly if you see you suddenly get aggro. For content where the target is susceptible to stuns, Force Choke can serve as an extra interrupt and Mad Dash is a great additional movement ability, but if those aren't needed definitely keep Undying Rage as your default skill.

LvL68
Force FlagellationPassive

Vicious Slash and Sweeping Slash deal additional Force energy damage. In addition, damage dealt by Smash and Raging Burst overwhelms targets for 45 seconds. Overwhelmed targets take 10% more damage from area attacks.

Bloodthirst generates 12 rage when activated, and you heal for 1% of your maximum health whenever you activate an ability that consumes rage.

General Suggestion: Even if you're forgetting to use Bloodthirst in most content, the passive 1% heal every time you use a Rage spender alone makes this choice the best in the tier. Default to this for sure.

LvL73

Force Charge, Force Rend, Devastating Blast, and Obliterate snare the target, reducing its movement speed by 50% for 6 seconds.
