hey, ive recently made the switch from pvping alot to raiding, my guild is in ssc/tk and starting hyjal..im the bloodfrenzy warrior, but ive been using stormherald as my pve wep :mad: because i simply had nothing else (lolmacestun)
im primarily looking to go sword spec..but axe is a possibility to, i need to find something i can get my hands on asap, pref a sword
i was thinking maybe just s2 sword until i can grab jinrok or maybe even the badge axe..? my guild have not downed zuljin as of yet cos we have been busy focusing on other things..
any suggestions will be much appreciated
also here is my pve gear http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Frostmourne&n=Overmilked (http://www.armory-light.com/us/Frostmourne/Overmilked/)

Go for the S2 sword, since you did lots of PvP, I guess some honor farming won't be such a pain for you.
Sword spec > Axe spec, it's been told over and over. (assuming equivalent level of gear)
I assume you have a swing timer, if not grab LD50_Abar
For the rest, you hit rating is way too low : 142 head for that
A missed wing means no rage, a missed swing means 3.5 sec @ ~0 DPS, mean you are useless 3.5 sec...

ahh fucking armory, sorry thats my full pvp gear, i have 155 hit, 11 expertise, 33.2%crit and 1.77k ap and 420 ArP

ah way better :-P
I might suggest that you try to get the shard of contempt from H-MgT
ok, might easier said than done... I myself haven't been able to get it yet....

What I've gathered from the various threads on arms pve (though feel free to correct me if I'm wrong), is that if you can get the ZA sword, go with that, but if not, go badge axe. It's a more nuanced conversation that that, but that's the general idea. S2 sword would be a good quick pick-up.

if you're willing you could also drop macesmith to get swordsmith, and craft the lionheart executioner, this would be expansive as hell but could also do the trick...

Getting an S2 weapon is better than switching BSing specs now, they are 128 dps weapons with nice amounts of ap and crit, 25k honor is only 2-3 days of grinding,find a pocket healer and HK your way there ^.^

muggs is right about that. It will be way easier to grind teh 25k honor thank the mats for the sword
