WArr fury/arms on Archimond

5 posts in this topic

A recent combat log (preferably hosted on Warcraft Logs) will be needed to adequately help you with your warrior. Doing a quick search on your character name I found two logs; one for Normal Arch as Fury on 10/20/15 and one for Arms dated 9/29/15.

 

I'm honestly not up on my Fury stuff as I've main-specced protection this tier but, with a more recent log, I can take a look at your Arms stuff as that is my off-spec.

I've never done really great with Fury except for fights like Iskar where I can  Recklessness+Bladestorm on the adds. My Fury numbers on Arch were pretty bad too, so I switched to Arms as I read that it was really good for that fight. My first couple attempts at arms weren't that great. I figured that Arms would just automatically be amazing due to sweeping strikes and the fact that much of the fight is a 2 target fight. It took me a while to realize that the real power of Arms is in it's massive executes. A good execute phase can bump you from 8th to 1st on the meters. I never realized how much more powerful the Arms version is (I suppose reading a tooltip is a good idea). With that in mind, this is how I do Arch.

 

First things first, I have sweeping strikes macro'd to MS,CS,Rend, and Execute, so that any time I hit one of those sweeping strikes is activated if it has fallen off. That way I don't miss out on a big execute cleave. They are simple macros like,

 

/cast sweeping strikes

/cast mortal strike

 

I also have Bloodbath macro'd to CS so That it only get's activated when I'm about to CS. 

 

1) Standard opening of prepot>charge>Rend>CDs>CS>MS,MS,MS

2) When Doomfire pops, I switch to it and Rend. Now I sit on my rage bar only hitting MS to keep from capping and when I think the Doomfire is about 6 secs from dying, I hit CS and wait, only MSing to keep from capping and as soon I Doomfire hits 20%, I just mash the execute button. Since CS is already up, I do a huge execute to Doomfire and a big execute cleave onto Arch as sweeping strikes is up. If you're lucky you can get 2 executes in, but sometimes it's only one.

3) Switch back to Arch and refresh rend hitting CS and MS as they come up.

4) When the Deathcaller comes up, it's the same process as the Doomfire. Switch, Rend, MS to avoid capping, CS to cover execute phase then spam execute when it hits 20%.

5) When the Overfiend comes out I switch to it for interrupts and use the same process as above, then usually have to switch to the deathcaller and finally back to Arch. I don't focus the dogs, though you can get some execute snipes out of them if you want I suppose.

6) You want to plan ahead a bit for Arch execute phase, making sure you have a full rage bar when he hits 20%. About 25% I stop hitting MS and let my rage bar fill up, only hitting MS to keep from capping. Right before he hit's 20%, you'll want to pot again, hit all your CDs (you should always save recklessness for this), then hit CS followed by Execute spam. Once your rage bar is spent, you just sit there autoattacking until you have a rage bar again and CS is up. Then it's CS>Execute spam again until bar is gone. Just keep doing this until he's dead.

7) the rest of the time during the fight I'm just hitting CS and MS when they pop up. I never use TC or WW. I think they are a marginal dps gain, but I don't bother with it. I suppose you can hit them if you like mashing buttons, but I usually just spam MS trying to catch the resets as quickly as possible.

 

Give this a try and see how it goes. Also, if you don't have the Archy trinket yet, this might not work as well as you don't get as many CS resets, but I'd still give it a try and see if you numbers improve on that fight.

      Here on Icy Vein's under the Arms Warrior DPS guide here is the recommended relic choice. I was under the impression that [Exploit the Weakness] was our top priority even if it meant 20-25iLvl difference. Since it would increase the proc chance by a factor of x2 with all three relics increasing Tacticians...
      Why does this guide on Icy Veins say otherwise? Is it because the information is out of date and hasn't been updated?

      Unfortunately this is not someting I can just run a Sim on because I don't currently have any [Exploit the Weakness] relics.

      So,
      Which trinket should I be using (obviously arms warriors are not concerned with iLvl because Mastery is desired over strength.
      I have the 820 iLvl trinket from a timewarped dungeon and that with heroism, Battle Cry, Potion, trinket use, could provide an extreme amount of dps burst which is also on a 1.5m CD. It seems like an obvious choice but I wanted to hear any thoughts or opinions that people have since I'll be losing 500+ static mastery. Also, the use effect gives around 20-24% increased damage during colossus smash. 
      Thoughts?...

      How does Battle Cry actually work? Does the 100% crit chance guarantee a crit? I ask because I've been trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong to boost my DPS and noticed today, multiple times, while working on the Raid dummy I was not enraging when I expected to due to Battle Cry being up. 
       
      I created a short clip that shows this happening:  
       
       
      Is this normal or a bug?
