surviving the grind Warrior Leveling tips needed

4 posts in this topic

I just returned to my warrior after more than a year and a half of neglect. at lvl 85 i am looking for a balanced spec that lets me do decent DPS and live through most of what Pandaria can throw at me. Havent seen a thread yet that can answer this question so here you go. :)

My rule of thumb (and this works for every class I level) is to always level with the spec I am going to play once I reach max level. This allows me to not have to relearn/ get re-used to everything once I hit max level.

As far as the leveling goes however, all 3 specs are viable. Fury or Arms will dish out more DPS (and they're both pretty much equivalent while leveling, although I admit Fury's rotation can feel a bit clunky at lower levels), whereas Prot will do less DPS by a decent margin, but will let you pull 3-4x more ennemies at a time (and have an easier time survive, when you're not prepared, Pandaria can be quite a surprise).

The most important thing is to remember to take Second Wind as your tier 2 talent. With that, you can play pretty much every spec you want and be close to invincible.

If you have any more questions or if I didn't answer yours correctly, just let me know. :)

Arms is less crit dependent, and you know your crit rating is going to fluctuate pretty chaotically over the next 5 levels. Otherwise, totally what Rage said.

      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?
