Hello all, I posted this thread in the Warrior's forums on Worldofwarcraft.com, and someone referred me over to here and suggested I should post it. Here it is:

This thread contains all of the Kara gear for warriors in an easy format, seperated by spec. Also, if there are two or more pieces of equipment for one slot, I place the one of more importance to the warrior's spec on top. Not everyone may agree with what order I put the gear in, but to each his own. This thread is also to point out the slots of which there is no kara gear for, so you can fill those in with other gear. Feel free to leave suggestions or let me know if I missed anything.
Enjoy!

it should work:
Merciless Gladiator's Plate Chestpiece

Are you using a different kinda Keyset or macroset that is changing your keys? Cuz i just see the [] in place of your ' s that's why its not working.

This is nice. I'm going to be upgrading ItemStats in the near future to use the wowarmory service instead of wowhead/thottbot/wowdigger, at which point I will probably edit a few of your links. :)

I can't believe I'm going to say this given the track record...

If there ever was a "Hunter Weapon", Legacy is it and probably shouldn't be a part of the Arms Warrior list.

Theres actually a few things on here that I wouldn't go for if I was Arms or Fury. Generally I tend to go more for the +hit as DW Fury and avoid things with out it like the plague. And with MS Arms I would go for everything with raw AP/strength and crit over hit. Examples:

FURY
Head: Helm of the Fallen Defender (+Hit!)
Neck: Worgen Claw Necklace (+Hit!)
Back: Royal Cloak of Arathi Kings (+Hit!)
Hands: Gloves of the Fallen Defender (+Hit!)
Feet: Ironstriders of Urgency
Ring: Ring of a Thousand Marks (+Hit!)
Ring: Garona's Signet Ring (+Hit!)
Trinket: Romulo's Poison Vial (+Hit!)
Mainhand: The Decapitator (Highest end damage weapon for better Heroic Strikes, as well as the USE ability for extra damage)
Offhand: King's Defender (+Hit!)
Ranged: Steelhawk Crossbow (+Hit!)

I'm not a "rogue in plate" and I refuse to use daggers and leather, thats just me though. If you want to go DW Fury your priorities should be +Hit>AP>Crit. "Lucky" crits with this spec can get you one shotted in PvE content. I would personally pass up the cloak of the dark reavers to the rogues because they would benifet more from it. Cloak of Arathi Kings gives us 52 AP, the Dark reavers gives rogues 58AP but only gives us the 34 from the raw stat.

ARMS
Head: Helm of the Fallen Defender
Neck: Mithril Chain of Heroism (+Crit! +AP!)
Back: Farstrider Wildercloak (+AP!)
Hands: Gloves of the Fallen Defender
Feet: Ironstriders of Urgency
Ring: Ring of a Thousand Marks(+Crit! +AP!)
Ring: Mithril Band of the Unscarred (+Crit! +AP!)
Trinket: Romulo's Poison Vial
Mainhand: Gorehowl (Axe spec PvE) or Despair (Swordspec PvP)
Ranged: Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix (+Crit! +AP!)

From my experiences you only need about +5% hit for 2H weapons, thus I'd pass off most of the +hit gear to the rogues.

1. A dps warrior that shuns ANY upgrade regardless of armour class is not only selling himself short but his raid as well.
You are there to DPS AND DPS ONLY. If you are not worth the slot then why should you be taken along?

Kara exalted ring > Garona's
Prince's ranged is the best in Kara.
Illhoof's Mace is just as good as the Decapitator, this is where the saying "what ever drops first" applies.
Fel Leather Gloves > the t4 for DW fury so bad it isn't even remotely funny.
T4 helmet is worth it because of the meta gem slot, else I'd take the leather helmet for dps.

And to set things straight, we don't emulate Rogues, they emulate us.
"Masters of Melee" ring a bell?

You OT in tank gear anyway so that's a mute point.

Yea I use leather in my dps set. Also someone mentioned hit rating for fury spec. Beyond the 9% needed to make specials hit, extra hit is inferior to other stats such as AP and crit for damage.

I have a problem, I got both the hands from Kara. And they both rock in there own way, the tier in there avoidance and armor (+ 8 stamina armor kit) and the maiden gloves in HP (2* 12 stamina gem and 8 stamina armor kit) + block.

Hands
Iron Gauntlets of the Maiden

Gloves of the Fallen Defender
Thottbot World of Warcraft: Gloves of the Fallen Defender (http://thottbot.com/i29758)

Since I have enough unbuffed HP 13,8 (with maiden gloves on) I was thinking of using the tier hands, but itís such a though choice. What do you guys think?

I chose Maiden, it just seems better than the t4 gloves almost outright, the sbv it provides helps a lot in threat generation, coupled with your brand new gnomergeran blocker you'll find yourself generating a lot of threat with increased sbv. The gloves aren't bad from t4, but the amount of stam you lose just... doesn't cut it.

Razmo

Haha thnx for the quick reply man, I think I will hold on to the tier gloves anyway, maybe for the set bonus one day. I don't need the tier helm btw cuz of my enginering helm so tier gloves go to the bank then. or fill a spot as my avoidance gear incase I run low on it.

I must agree, theres a long guide on here about it, but i found it true simply because when i started playing my first fury warrior and sarted pumping AP and crit
(apparently the crit pushes alot of misses of the tables with speciel atacks)
i was Out DPS:ing rouges with my blueish gear and they and lots of shiny epics, i liked it alot :)

Great guide. I have one suggestion for the noob tank like me. Is it possible to include the boss that drops each item?

I have a hunter where I know the drops I need from which boss, but to have the tank drops by boss would be a great help.

King's Defender is a great tanking sword and is found in kara
