Reasonable Arms DPS?

4 posts in this topic

Hello everyone, just a little background first.


I joined in late Cata and throughout most of that expansion and early mop I had no idea what I was doing and pretty much sucked/never made any real progress. This patch, though (5.4) I've started raiding relatively casually for progression purposes, not really competitively. I'm 13/14 in SoO at the moment (have killed all but thok).


So, I'm not sure if I'm doing the DPS I should be doing at my ilvl. Here's a link to my armory (I have the 2-set and also the norushen trinket to replace the thok one on multi-target fights.)


On single target fights (like iron jug and malkorok), I manage to pull somewhere between 200k and 220k DPS on 10M normal. I've heard that arms is one of the worst dps specs right now but it still just doesn't feel right when I have a similarly geared hunter and boomkin in my raid group beating me by ~20-30k on single target fights every time. My question is, is my DPS as high as its going to get for my item level or do I have room to improve/should I respec for fury?

If you can post some logs from your raid, we can analyze your playstyle and see what could be done to improve. Without that, it's hard to say.

I wouldn't say the DPS is bad, per say. And being beaten by some classes by that small of a margin isn't somethig to be ashamed for really. I find it interesting though that you've managed to clear all but Thok. It shouldn't be too hard if you've managed the rest.

~200k seems a bit on the low side for your ilvlbut it may be because at the point you're at, fury would definitely give better results.


You probably have room to improve (everybody has smile.png ) but I would assume that mainly it's because Arms on single target is weaker than fury atm, especially past 530 ilvl.

      Greetings everyone!
      I'm new to this site and abbreviations in general when it comes to WoW, since it was 4 years ago since I played WoW. I've played for some time now as an Arms Warrior and finally found out that "Helgar" gives you the quest for the hidden Arms artifact, when you've reached "AK3".
      Now what I am wondering is, what does "AK3" mean and how do I obtain it? Thank you for your time,

      Howdy, everybody! So with the release of Legion, I thought I'd make a more updated guide to the basics of the warrior class in World of Warcraft. I did this because my old guide was about 2 years old and was made when MoP was still current! Crazy, I know. But nonetheless, I made the guide so that I could help new warriors learn the fundamentals of their class. It covers stuff such as the resource that the Warrior uses, how it's generated, what is common among the specializations,  the benefits of choosing different races for your warrior (takes up the majority of the video's time), and much more! And if this video is able to help even one person out there learn and understand the warrior a little better, it will have been worth making. The video is about 20 minutes long, so grab a drink and/or snack and enjoy the video!  :D

      Hello guys,
      I play Fury Warrior and I'm having a dilemma in trinket choice. So far I have been using heroic version of Ursoc's Rending Paw and ilvl 845 Nightmare Egg Shell. Today I got HC Warforged (ilvl 875) Ravaged Seed Pod from Nythendra. According to the icy-veins guide and simcraft, the ravaged seed pod is worse than nightmare egg shell, but there is a huge difference between ilvl. I think I do higher dps with egg shell, but should I sacrifice it for ilvl boost from 857 to 859? I would appreciate any advice.
      EDIT: I know the best trinkets are Chaos Talisman and Faulty Countermeasure, but I haven't been lucky on drop yet.
      Here is also link to my armory:
      Thanks in advance for your replies :-)
