Haste is one of the lowest stat priorities available to an arms warrior but if I'm at 8% hit cap which enchant provides more damage? Hurricane for smoother rage gen? Or avalanche for occasional Dmg proc?

Why not get Landslide? Might cost an arm and a leg but it probably is your best enchant as Arms. Om nom nom damage increase!

My guess would be it's probably a blue that doesn't deserve a several-thousand-gold enchant like Landslide.

im thinking the enchant that does nature damage would be better, simply because haste is absolutely shit for you

Well, this is true but without specifications I decided to go best enchant ;)

Just don't want to empty my gold coffers just yet :) (using pvp wep)

I might be more persuaded once I get the hammer from magmaw

After 4.1 there will be plenty of shards around due to ZA/ZG and every boss dropping an epic item.

Avalanche is pretty underwhelming.. as is Hurricane for Arms. Why don't get Berserking instead? 400 Attackpower and only needs stuff everyone has on his stash from leveling.

Berserking would be fine if it's a blue. Landslide on any weapon worth a damn.

So you're saying it would be better to go double Berserking rather than double Hurricane, as I'm doing right now on my PvP and Foe Reaper? :)

Any numbers?

Avalanche gives dmg a like 0.8-0.9% overall, so i prefer for blue weapon hurricane, but u can do hurricane for offhand and avalanche for MH

I went with Avalanche if I play as arms until Landslide is affordable (depends on server economy D:)

Avalanche for me did maybe 2% of my dmg at least thats after I did a 2mil dmg test as arms. It procs often for a 2hander but for fury probably not a good idea.

i use hurricane on my 2-hander.

while there is no problem with tanks in my guild we encounter some troubles with dpses.

on our maloriak heroic FK i was kind of No33 in WOL arms warrior rankings for that boss (as i looked through other armsers, i was the only one with hurricane ench. for the first 50ppl (well currently i should be around No 65-80 in the rankings for maloriak heroic).

so definetly go for hurricane till you get a twohander worth of landslide)

P.S. checked WoL, No83... (was not dpsing maloriak heroic after that, tank rotation ^.^)
