View Full Version : Arms/Fury 2-H
So, I'm looking at an arms/fury build for getting my Talbuk from Nagrand.
My two themes were to run a big 2-H and cycle abilities off of crits or to dual-wield swords and hit as fast and hard as often. I'll probably keep this build up until I reach 70 when I'll respec Prot for heroics.
I'm more tempted to use the 2-H option (and I do like polearms...) with this kind of build (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=LAb0bIwZVVuhMxoV) which has some room for improvement. I can't seem to come up with a 2-W build I like.
I am also looking at how much agility I need to get crazy, and what to temper it with. I think my goal is maximum burst damage and lower rage requirements to sustain DPS. Any advice would be welcome. ^.^

its good to see that you are interested in playing with builds.
unfortunatly i am at work and cant access any tallent calculators.
my suggestion for farming is DW (dual-wield) fury spec
http://www.theoryspot.com/forums/damage-per-second-discussion/32361-dw-fury-guide-4th-edition.html <-- an extremely good guide for fury
and just a TL;DR response to the agi thing. Per 1 agi you get 1 AP and a bit of crit and armor. Strength is more beneficial to stack as it gives you 2AP per point.
now, the only way to enjoy/learn/become-good-at a spec is by playing it and experimenting. Clock it up and give it a buzz and experiment! :D

This is an extremely useful guide if you want truely solid 2 handed DPS. http://www.honorbound.se/Slamdps2.pdf
IMO Slam build does work but there are 2 catches.
1) Practice. It's a build that requires a mod like Quartz for timing your swings. Not only that but it takes some practice and timing to use right. I think it's a lot of fun though and does pretty well grinding.
2) Mobility. Usually grinding mobs and what not doesn't demand a whole lot of movement at all but Slam does require finesse in those situations.
Upon further point tweaking, I thought of this spend (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=LA0MdAioZVVuh0goVzo) or this one (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=LA0cdAio00zZVVuh0goV) for the 70 build.
I'm still pouring over Elitist Jerks, but nothing definitive yet.
I do appreciate the feedback Sanelora, and I hope you can offer something more substantial when you get the chance. I've been through Meeks Guide, and remember when he first posted it. ^.^ It's still a solid source of information but I'm not focused on Fury and don't see the appeal of execute spam. (Don't take this to mean the numbers don't make sense, but I have to do a depressing amount of PvP to get my Talbuk which is why the focus was on burst damage with a 2-H.)
I'm definitely open to discussions as to why that's not as good an idea as it seems to me right now. The last time I ran any PvP with a warrior was before the GCD changes came into effect and I was around level 30 with a different warrior and Pre-BC release. (So...yeah, it's been awhile...<.<)
I'm running with two things in mind. I like seeing really big numbers flash up. It's kind of heartwarming to feel like I've exploded my opponent.
I want to be as effective as I can sans equipment. I don't have a lot of play time available to me, so I have a very long grind for gear upgrades.
Well, diatribe over, I'd love to hear from the community. ^.^

OH! That talbuk... I thought you meant the rep one. :confused:
Well... if its the PvP builds you are after... I am afraid I cant help you very much :(
My experience with Fury is limited at best and Meeks has helped me immensely and my experience in PvP/MS is extremely poor
Cheers buddy, good work, good luck and have a great time ya hear? ;)

I'm not quite sure what you're looking for in this post (don't have clue what Talbuk you're talking about:P). From the other posts i'm gathering you're looking for a pvp build.
Personally i roll with a 35/23/3 Spec. This spec allows me to stancedance to perform disarm/spell reflect because of the extra rage Tactical Mastery saves. Also you have Mortal Strike and the Blood Frenzy Debuff on your target when you crit. The weapon specialisation can be changed accordingly to what weapon you wield.

If you want to go for more dps but (a lot) less survivability you can go for a 31/30/0 build.
This build gives more AP from your shout, 2Hander damage, but no second wind, blood frenzy, or tactical mastery. I suppose this build would be better for grinding but it's rather sucky for pvp.

Of course you can also go for a combination of these 2 builds, taking second wind and only 3 points in flurry to regain some pvp survivability etc.
Hope I've somewhat helped you and not just written down something completely different than what you are looking for :D.

For a 2h build when I PvP I tend to use something like this: 33/28/0 (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=LV0xkAbog0zbZE0zmMxRc).
The more negotiable points in there would be the 3 in flurry into TM, the 2 in weapon mastery into imp slam, 5 in booming voice into unbridled wrath or 1 from 2h wep spec into imp overpower.
I'm mainly prot though and no PvP whizz so others might be able to suggest something better?
