Even though it seems like Arms is not quite as popular as it used to be I'm trying to gather some information and advice about both the stats/gear I would be prioritizing and the tree itself.
I've been Protection for so long that I'm pretty out of touch with the other trees, and with general melee DPS requirements as well. Due to the (seeming?) influx of tanks (at least on my server), I've been giving some thought to picking up some DPS gear and speccing Arms--when the dual-spec system finally arrives, that is. I should note that I tried Fury, briefly, in its latest incarnation and just did not really like it very much, hence the interest in Arms.
So, in general I'd appreciate any suggestions on what kind of stats I should try to pick up. More specifically, what kind of stats should I have as an Arms warrior before heading into Heroics? 10/25 mans? Any specific gear recommendations would be great, but I can do that legwork myself once I understand what I'm looking for and how I should prioritize (i.e., if hit = # STR > AP > Crit > x).
