View Full Version : Arms Warrior, How am I doing?

I know...I hate these threads that ask you to rate someone. But since the Patch I have worked hard at my secondary spec Arms.

I would love an experienced Arms Warrior to take a look and let me know or give me suggestions on Gems/Enchants anything they see that I could be doing wrong.

I have tried to read all I can, we are going for 10 Man Maly tonite and for the first time I will be DPSing. and helping with adds in phase 2.

Thanks a Bunch:

Hi Enok,

First off I would suggest getting either 85 attack power or better to your mace. I wouldn't suggest getting zerker enchant, as you will probably be replacing that weapon soon. I would also highly suggest getting +50 AP to bracers and 44 AP to gloves, as expertise is not that essential (or not nearly as important that TG) to arms. You should always be standing behind the boss so you won't have to worry about getting parried, and arms has an immediate counter for a dodge, often resulting in a huge net gain of rage for you as well (as overpower only costs 5 rage and does a massive amount of damage wen it crits)

I would highly suggest doing your best to get up to 35% crit chance (but not sacrificing your gems, as you should be gemming straight strength on most if not all of your gear). Arms is heavily dependant on crits to maintain rage, as it is very easy to get rage starved.

Your spec also could use work. I would suggest going down to get improved excecute in the fury tree, as this will reduce the rage cost, and overall allow you use excecute more often. I would highly suggest going this spec (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#LcrcbfIzx0bRdGuioGx00xb) for raiding. A similar one will do just fine as well, as a few of these talents are a matter of opinion.

Always make sure you have the correct weapon specialization to your corresponding weapon. I would suggest you get an axe or polearm for the 5% increase critical strike, especially since you crit is so low.

Here is my armory link (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Garrosh&n=Zalvanna) for any other refferences you need. I hope this helped! If you have any questions feel free to come talk to me on Garrosh, I'm usually always around and willing to talk to people :o)

Moved to appropriate forum.

Please read rules before posting.

it's looking pretty good to me now, one thing to keep in mind is that the hit cap for a single two hander is 8% so you do have a little buffer there for you to take up some other stats when possible.
