Warrior Arms 71 DPS help
Hey everybody, I was wondering if I can can a few tips at increasing my DPS as a Warrior Arms spec. Right now it's at about 300 for 71 and I believe that's very sub-par. Any pointers on how to greatly increase that? As of now in PVP I get wrecked.

Any help would be appreciated. I'm also fairly new to WoW, this is my first toon so I'm not the best when it comes to all the terminology.
Firstly don't worry about DPS until you've reached the max level. Just enjoy the leveling expierience.
Arms is GCD locked spec, this means that in combat every GCD you shuld have something to do and the basic priority is:
1. Keep Rend up
2. Mortal strike
3. keep Colossus Smash debuff up
in the end this means that you end up doing something like this;
Charge > Rend > MS > CS > OP > MS > Slam > CS > MS > OP > Slam
Whilst this is happening you should use HS anytime you're cabove 75 rage.
Specwise you really need to pick up Improved Slam. Slam is a big part of your rotation and a 20% damage increase to it can't be passed up. Secondly while your casting Slam you're melee swing (the white auto-attack) is delayed. this in itself is a dps loss, but whats worse is that a slowed swing time means you generate rage slower.
