Hey there

I am playing my Warrior mainly as prot, but as I love to DPS aswell, I spec arms when ever i can or it is required by my guild. Latelly I have been wondering if could do better with the gear I have at hand though, in order to max my raid performance as arms.

I have seen quite a few different suggestions on when to gem for ArP (at 30% arp from gear alone, at 3200 ap ub etc.), and would like a confirmation on what to trust.

My current UB stats are:
3627 AP
231 Hit
36.51% crit
22 exp
13.32% ArP
Weapon: BoH with berserking.
Trinkets: mirror + bandits

Currently I am gemmed solely for Str, with a few str/crit gems for bonusses where they are worth going for. And my main question is if switching to ArP will be an DPS increase. Atm I would gain 96 ArP by regemming without screwing bonusses at the loss of the same amount of str, and another 54Arp if I go for ArP only at the loss of 28str, 20crit, 12 stam and 4exp .

Another thing is my weapon, as mentioned I am using BoH atm, but I got Stormedge lying in the bank. Even though it has a a lower DPS, it have str and ArP, which makes me wonder if it would be an upgrade.

My last question is reguarding my rotation. I currently seem to slam quite alot (roughly getting 10% of my dmg from slams) and not using HS at all, is this the best way to go? And in adition what to do after 20%, currently just staying with my rotation, leaving out slams for non SD'ed exes though, is this the right way to go?

I am currently pulling around 4-5k DPS in 25 mans on non gimmick fights, how is this considdering my stats?

Any other comments on my stats, rotation etc. are most welcome.

Thanks in advance

Do not gem for arp till you get 30% off your gear alone. You shoul dnot be useing HS that much. The only time you should use HS is if you have 70+ rage, MS is on cooldown, no SD procs, no OP procs, then you can HS with your slams...
