View Full Version : Arms Gear and ArPen on WoW Armory

07-01-2009, 06:54 AM
Former fury warrior trying to make a switch to Arms as allegedly it will pump out more DPS. I'm languishing at the bottom of the charts, barely able to put out 2500DPS in OS when I was 3k+ just a short 2 months ago as fury. Trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong, so I figure I'd start with gear. I'm close to hit capped, and definitely expertise capped, I know. I'm rending, MSing, SDing when I can, and doing my TfB rotation. It's just not pumping out the DPS. Also my armory link says I have 0 ArPen, yet I'm wearing several pieces that do have ArPen on it. What's up with that? Any help would be appreciated..

Are you slamming on the free gcd's?

To learn more about ArP, I suggest you read the EJ forums, lots of info there - Elitist Jerks (http://www.elitistjerks.com)

I was fury offspec before I got a decent 2h mace, then I switch to arms and gemmed for ArP, my DPS went up pretty significantly.

Not slamming really - didn't see that much in the "guides" out there for Arms as a significant increase. I can give that a shot.

I've read about the ArPen boost, I'm just not sure why it's not showing up in the Wow Armory or in my stats when I mouseover. I have a few pieces that have some ArPen, so it's not like I have 0, like they say.

I'm using the Naxx 25 BoP trash mace, Inevitable Defeat, so that's helpful as well given I'm spec'd into maces.

The only thing I haven't done is regem for ArPen. I guess I can try that and see what happens - I just don't know if that will boost my DPS 1000+ where I feel like it should be.
