Arms Warrior DPS Relic Choice

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 Is it because the information is out of date and hasn't been updated?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.

Hey Nashar,

Not sure if anyone had gotten back to you on this, but I can hopefully shed some light. I followed the order IV had until I noticed a drop in my DPS. The original order was Exploit, then PS until they nerfed the % on Exploit. Still, I've noticed it wasn't proccing enough to do the extra damage. With that being the case, I needed to take the extra % wherever I could get it. 

I'm not sure that the relic order that you quoted is for the Focused Rage spec though, and that's the spec I go with. I run Exploit in my blood and shadow relic slots and Unending Rage in my iron slot because of Unending Rage. That really helps me stay on top of my rage.

Bottom line is if you feel that you're not proccing enough, go with Exploit.

Good evening, Nashar.

The image you posted from the guide is, more or less, correct. As of the latest information, the top simming relics are for:

Keep in mind that this is assuming you have 3/3 in both DeathblowDeathblow and Unending RageUnending Rage. If you're not that far into the weapon with traits, you can always use the relic simming guide posted by Nyjl: Click me.

I hope this helps. If you should have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Zurek - I am talking about the Focused Rage rotation.

Sajakain - How is Precise Strikes the best option? It allows for more slams since you'll have more rage to spend, but isn't the whole point to get tacticians to proc? Wouldn't it be proccing less often because you're spending less rage on Mortal Strike? That seems counter productive to me. 

I really like to think that [Exploit the Weakness] x3 relics is the best option and that this part of the guide simply isn't up to date. And, since Relics are hard enough to come by I wouldn't be basing this off of my artifact progression.

Mortal StrikeMortal Strike has a base cost of 20 Rage. While we do have cost reduction spells such as DauntlessDauntless and the discussed trait of Precise StrikesPrecise Strikes, on spend abilities such as TacticianTactician doesn't calculate from the reduced resource cost; it calculates from the base cost.

Simply put, Tactician reads the base cost of 20 Rage when it decides to proc or not instead of the reduced cost of 7 rage. (7 Rage is assuming the reduced cost from Dauntless and 3/3 Precise Strikes).

================================

Edit:

I should also mention that, according to simulations, if you have Archavon's Heavy HandArchavon's Heavy Hand equipped then the priority does change to x3 Exploit the WeaknessExploit the Weakness relics.

If you have any question about a particular relic or which one will do better for your warrior, personally, feel free to use Nyjl's simming guide for relics: Click me.

      About Us:
      Two Strike Policy is a weekday Mythic hardcore progression guild on US-Sargeras. In our spare time, we run various high Mythic keystones/carries and Heroic Uldir carries. Currently we are recruiting for our BFA Mythic Team. We value camaraderie, communication, preparedness and excellence in each other. Discord is used to communicate during raids.
      Although BFA brings changes to the loot system, we will still be using the updated RCLootCouncil to help distribute loot if it is tradeable or a sidegrade. We expect raiders to be aware of their BIS and ideal gearing setup, and willing to trade where possible to best equip the raid team. The type of people we want would almost JUMP at giving gear to their fellow raid member/team if it is a sidegrade for themselves. Guild repairs, flasks and food are provided to all raiders, including trials.
      Current Progression:
      5/8M Uldir                                                                                                                                                                                                  11/11M Antorus 
      7/9M ToS
      7/10M NH - (Started tier late as a guild most are 9/10M & 10/10M)
      7/7M EN
      Raid Times:
      Tuesday - 7pm-10pm CST
      Wednesday - 7pm-10pm CST
      Optional Tuesday Morning On Reset - 9am-11am CST (depends on server restart) - Heroic Uldir on mains 
      Optional Thursday 7pm-10pm CST - Alt Heroic Uldir 
      Optional Saturday 7pm-10pm CST - Mythic Alt Uldir                                                                                                                 
      Invitations start 30 minutes before raid time.
      Recruitment:
      We are currently recruiting strong applicants of all classes and roles, with the ability to handle calls and criticism like an adult. 
      High Priority Recruitment:
      Melee DPS: Havoc DH
      Ranged DPS: Warlock
      Healer: Resto Druid, Resto Sham and MW Monk

      Progression: 8/8 N 8/8 H (AOTC)  2/8 M
      Guild Information: Banana Hammock was an old guild on Hyjal that we restored for BFA. Our goals are to reach AOTC and to progress into Mythic. Now realizing that the next tier is next year, and we have already achieved AOTC, got M Taloc down and got M Mother to 20%, we are in need of a few more people to complete our Mythic roster. Looking forward, we don't want to bash our heads on AOTC farming forever. We want to progress into Mythic, so we are looking for a handful of people(dps) to fill our roster for mythic progression. Of course we're looking for skilled players, but we're also looking for people with a great sense of humor as well! We can't promise Cutting Edge, but we want people who love to push content and have a good time doing it. Come be another banana in our hammock 🙂
      Looking for:  
      Hybrids(Dps/Heals) Melee DPS Ranged DPS If interested in raiding or hanging out with us just message

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
