Clearing things up before I raid
I got back from Afghanistan about 45 days ago, and I didn't have time to play anything much while I was there for 10 months. I really need some stuff cleared up so I can see which stations I'm a go and a no-go at.
1. what's considered acceptable dps(the number) for those just entering raids?
2. According to this link: http://www.tankspot.com/showthread.p...-vs-Fury-5.0.5 , the difference between Arms and SMF is marginal. How accurate is this, and for someone who's played Arms warrior for 6 years and understands its workings (I picked it back up in like 5 minutes after being away for nearly a year) but only did fury for like 3 months in Wrath (before SMF) and will have to learn a whole new ballgame, is it really worth it for me in the long run to go SMF, or would it benefit everyone for me to stick with what I know?
3. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...3%B3n/advanced The armory has yet to update my character since getting a pve trinket in place of the medallion and a blue ring to replace the green one, and my ilvl is like 462 with it, so I can queue MV. I know I need to enchant some stuff, I get that. Will this setup, provided I keep my hit capped and finish up my expertise cap, be acceptable in a raid finder normal 10 MV? Or will I see some friction with raiders because I'm using pvp gear? I understand pvp gear as being met with disdain by raiders.
With this in the open, is there anything else I forgot to mention that could help me get ready? I just want a list of things raiders look at, and say Go or No Go, and then if No Go, explain my deficiencies and possible corrections.
Thank you! :D
