    Just did a small update, mostly fixing typos a few other misc. tweaks, along with the new Glyph of Colossus Smash mechanics. Probably the last update for the expac!

    If you don't have Tactical Mastery, stance dancing is a bit more difficult to pull off decently, but Heroic Strike probably isn't a huge concern (though it does depend on the fight). You shouldn't...

    Thing is, even with a threat drop, high-aggro classes are still going to pull at the start of the fight if they aren't careful. If it's 5s into the fight, and you have 80k threat and the tank has...

    So how's this: let's assume you only use DC right after a MS. This removes the need to worry about Rend/Lambs entirely, which removes the bonus from MS. Instead, the only thing we care about while...

    That's... actually a great question. My intent was to convey that you should do your regular rotation, but just make sure to use Slam in all the gaps. However, it may very well be a DPS increase to...

    Warrior State of Arms, 4.1?

    I've been out of the loop these past few months with RL stuff (same old song, same old song...), but with the release of 4.1 I need to make some changes to the Arms guide to keep it up to date. As I...

    The question is also what the opportunity cost was for that GCD. Say, Slam. OP is rage efficient and hits hard, but does it hit hard enough to do more than, say, Slam + white swing (plus mastery...

    Yeah I'm on the fence about stance dancing myself. I can do it optimally on a target dummy, but in boss fight I just might not have that kind of focus. It might be the sort of thing I only ever try...

    That's probably a good ballpark. You've got to factor in the difference from using Execute and the difference from the extra rage, but that's rather tricky and probably not a huge difference overall...

    Durr, math fail.


    Even 10% haste is a pretty significant (10% actually :P) buff to your rage generation, and should be more than enough to bump you over the rage minimum.

    Keep in mind that this guide is written assuming 4.0.6 is live, so it may not be entirely correct for the next week or two until the patch is released.
