    [Arms] Just looking for a quick glance over

    Lo folks,

    With our abundance of tanks in our guild (and recently healers as well!) I may need to fill a raid spot as a dps instead of my usual role of tank or healer.

    I've logged out in my dps gear to see if someone a bit more knowledgeable about arms dps can have a quick look to see if the gear etc is good enough and it's a case of me getting into the dps abilites and so on. I think the talent spec should be ok, perhaps just some advice if I am gemming/enchanting up correctly.

    My armoury link - http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sh...&cn=Pitstarter

    However, I have a few bits of 251 gear that I have yet to enchant or gem up, but plugging them into Landsouls' sheet seems to indicate a decrease in output if I am using it correctly. I can only guess this could be down to losing the 4T9 bonus? The items in question are Blade-Scored Carapace, Throatrender Handguards and/or Sanctified Ymirjar Lord's Gauntlets.

    On Festergut last night I am told I pulled 5.7k dps on someone's recount, but I never found out if that was peak or average. I'll try to get a log of the next run for some reference.

    Since this is my offspec I don't really have first line access to plate dps gear. I get mostly the scraps from the table, but I do have an overabundance of Triumph badges. The Frost badges are getting saved for Prot gear however.

    So I'd be most appreciative if someone could give my little dwarf a glance over and then it's just a case of getting my groove on with priorities.

    Moved to HALP forum, even though this is dps related, all armory lookups generally belong in the HALP forum.

    First thing's first. You need to get hit capped. 263 is the magic number (8%) The 4 piece T9 is pretty lame and I imagine you'll see more dps gains from the Sanctified gauntlets and maybe the chest (haste is kind of a crap stat for Arms.)

    Looking now, I do agree the hit rating seems somewhat low at 6.04%. It's pretty much given that we have an alliance crutch (aka space goat) with every raid for the +1% hit, so thats just around 30 hit rating extra I need to find.

    Regards to the 4t9, I did find it strange that landsoul's sheet suggested more dps using it compared to the Blade-Scored Carapace and Sanctified Ymirjar Lord's Gauntlets. I'm going to have to sandbox a bit to jiggle gems and enchants.

    bloodshed band the 245 triumph ring has hit on it so that may sort your hit issues out
    id also go farm banner of victory from toc 5 norm as its better than chorium coaster

    actually id pick up both of the 245 rings tbh (dextrous something is the other 1)
    then go for frost cloak if u got enough emblems spare.

    ur Arp is currently about 25% so with NES proc ur not hitting 100% which will make a big differance to ur dps
    i think u need around another 10% arp to be hitting 100% on proc
