Some backstory - I started as a protection warrior so I could pull a load of mobs and AoE them into a puddle over time without being liquefied myself.
I went like this from 1-100 without a hitch. Switched to Arms because of my fascination with Blademasters and Blackhand and I was promptly curb-stomped into oblivion.
From what I've experienced, Arms has incredibly bursty unpredictable damage which can either annihilate a target or grant you no procs whatsoever making for long gaps in the fight during which you will do negligible damage.
The only self-healing abilities you have are:
Second Wind - Restores 6% of your maximum health ever 1 second after 5 seconds without taking damage.
Victory Rush - Heals you for 30% of your maximum health, only useable after killing an enemy.
Touch of Zakajz - 3%-6%-9% of mortal strike's damage is returned to you as health.
If during a fight a monster starts out DPSing you, the fight is already over and you are graced with the choice of fleeing or dying because your defensive cooldowns aren't the best thing in the world.
This becomes very evident when attempting to solo rares or even packs of mobs larger than three at 110.
There are two builds for Arms circling the web.
In short these are their gimmicks.
-Excellent burst damage
-Great for sniping stragglers in PvP
-Very clunky use of Focused Rage
-Only shines in Colossus Smash windows
-Very Poor AoE, cooldown based
-More rage to use without FR
-Some freedom with talents
-Stale rotation (You don't build towards something)
-Poor burst damage
I had an astonishingly hard time as an Arms warrior, even fighting two enemies at a time I would come very close to dying.
My damage was GREAT but only during the windows provided by battle cry/avatar combo.
My survivability sucked, my damage sucked, my AoE sucked, and I ended going back to Protection to progress.
I REALLY want to like Arms, but it just falls on its face every time I try to use it.
I call to you Arms warriors, you brave few - what is the trick to the specialization?
What is the purpose / focus of the spec?
Thanks for your yalls time and I hope I am in the the right place to ask. First things first, here is my toons info page. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Aurgus/advanced . The question I have is this. On the Arms Warrior guide, it states the the stat priority for Arms Warrior is Mastery>Haste>Versatility>Strength>Crit . Then the first thing it says in the next paragraph is the following.
Strength is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.
Critical Strike provides additional damage to your attacks and abilities, and also increases your rage generated by auto-attack swings on successful critical strikes.
As a on and off again / returning player and all around general boob, I mean, NOOB lol, this is extremely confusing. I am already and almost done with my main Warrior quest, and I have so far chosen gear that focused on Mastery and Haste. But from that the guide says, I am doing it wrong?
Thanks again for your time , any help would be appreciated, and MUCH LOVE from Wisconsin :)

Hey Gang, would you mind looking at my logs and let me know where I can improve my rotation as an assassination rogue. I notice that all of my best logs have a significant amount of Poison Bomb and I don't like praying to RNJesus. I am hoping there are some things I can do to hit top dps.
Here is my armory. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/emerald-dream/Elodar/simple. I know my Mastery is low but lately I have had crap luck on drops. One of the options I have to bring up my Mastery is to drop Insignia of Ravenholdt +Well Flattened Wristguards and change to Denial of Half Giants + an 890 Spellblades Gemmed Signet but Denial is a sub rogue legendary. This brings my agility to 34248, mastery to 137%, and my crit to 28%. I tried running this combo with the higher mastery and did not feel like I was doing more dps even though the Sims say I should.
https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/dF3qCynDbvGrVAh6#fight=14&type=damage-done&source=186 This is one of my better logs where I think I did most thing correct. Please look at this and let me know if there is something I am missing.
Hi Guys, I need little help with stats priority and rotation. I think, Im doing something wrong with my dps. Cant break 500k-550k DPS on single target and need advice to someone AoE target bosses in Nighthold.
I send my armory:
And the logs:
Sorry for my bad english and its my first post.
So I've been pushing and pushing to get my DPS up over the course of the new expansion. I've managed to bag my self the legendary shoulders and feet. I've been looking at logs and trying to improve things. I learnt a new opener (which massively improved my dps) and got my crit up (as I noticed other rogues had much higher crit than me).
And now I just don't know what to do. I just can't seem to get better!
I'll put a link to logs from the last heroic nighthold we did. It wasn't my best night performance wise anyway (i'm playing on a potato and we had a huge raid group - fps sat between 6-15 for the whole raid). I think I'm doing something wrong with my main rotation when compared to the other rogue than joined us but I just don't know what it is. I'm stumped.
So if anyone can see obvious mistakes then please shout at me so I can fix them. It's getting really frustrating! You should be able to get to past logs through this link too.
