I hit level 80 as Fury Warrior fairly recently and was only just getting into Heroic and 10 Man Naxx content when 3.1 hit. Boom, nerf to TG. What I am reading here is that, unless geared well, respec to Arms. I have been trying to do some research to find standard arms builds, but haven't found anything updated for 3.1. For those that have respec'd, anyone willing to share their build?
Here is my current build and gearing:
The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Garrosh&n=Wilmcote)
Obviously, an arms build would have to include mace specialization, given the weapons available to me.
Hoping that some of the more knowledgeable players can offer some advice!

After Dual Spec came out I immediately spec'd to Arms as my secondary talent set. I prefer Arms over Furry (lol not a typo) merely because I am really the only warrior tank in my guild. The other warriors are fury. So my OT is usually a Paladin with a little DK action sprinkled in there. I prefer Arms b/c first of all it isn't as volatile as fury and being in beserker stance. Sure I"m not going to win any dps races but I've been a MT long enough to know my job and not get caught up in meters :) Second, and most important is I can keep up my normal debuffs (TC, Demo Shout, Sunder) without having to break my 2 key for my stance dance macro, lol. Here's the build I use and sure I could take three points out of Armed to the Teeth and max out Demoralizing Shout, but I like my OT, not love them : P

Kami,
Thanks for your response. I have been playing with the talent calculator all morning trying to come up with build I like. I've even considered trying to do some kind of arms/fury hybrid build with dual wield 1handers. Nothing was really thrilling me.

Also, thanks for posting your build. There are some similarities to what I came up with on my own, but also a few surprises. I would have thought 5pts in parry is a given for arms, fury or prot. Also putting 2 into booming voice over demo shot.

Again, thanks for the thoughts. I need to decide what to do with my 2nd spec here pretty quick. My dps output on a heroic training dummy was about 1.5k
Not good. :confused:
