Good morning, Oktaykalfa.

Looking at your armory I notice a few things:

  • You have a nerfed trinket (Appendages. It's not as good as it once was but it's better than nothing I suppose).
  • You have no legendaries. That sucks. :(
  • You have extremely low haste despite your high mastery. While this isn't an absolute major concern, it's noticeable. I'd worry about other things first, though, before getting to this point.

Looking over your logs, just on Krosus, I noticed a few things:

  • You're holding onto Focused Rage for too long. Your pattern(s) show that you like to stack it before casting Mortal Strike. This is a priority issue.
  • You're not casting Slam enough. Again, this is a rotation priority issue.
  • On Normal Krosus - why would you cast cleave or Heroic Throw? Heroic throw can make some sort of sense if you're casting it when he breaks the bridge and you're waiting for him to come closer (which, looking at the charts, you seemed to do). Personally I think you'd get more out of going back farther and charging in to get the rage but that's just me. Cleave should not be cast because - on Normal - no adds should be spawning. The one time you cast cleave you hit the boss. This is a single target fight. Again, this is a rotational issue.
  • Your Shattered Defense buff seemed to linger a few times which means you did not cast Mortal Strike or Execute to consume it.

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

All in all - you need to get a better understanding of the rotation and priority. Gear will help, sure, but your biggest setback right now is the lack of a proper rotation. I would read over the guides here on IV and check out the Compendium written specifically for Arms Warriors. I've provided the links to them for your convenience. I hope this helps and here's to you getting better with your Arms Warrior!

The Arms Compendium - Written by top-end theorycrafters in the Warrior Community. If you want to absolutely min/max your warrior.
Icy Veins Arms Guide - A great place to start that covers everything concerning the spec - including the rotation priority.
My Guide - A thread written by me, here on IV, that just presents the same information in a different medium.

Read through these and practice on a dummy. The Arms rotation is not a simple one - at least not at first. It takes practice and understanding the priority in given situations to make it work. You can log a dummy parse if you'd like, once you feel you have a grasp on the rotation, and post it here for review for further clarifications if you want. Once you get the rotation down you can then look to other factors such as gear, stats, and proper consumables.

      Autumn Mist is a mythic raiding guild. Originating from a group of friends intent on pushing high end content. We are a young guild, started out in Feb 2017, driven to succeed.

      Raiding Schedule:
      Wed 20:00-22:00
      Thur 20:00-22:00
      Sun 20:00-22:00
      Mon 20:00-22:00 (optional Alt/Farm run)

      What you can expect from us:
      We aim to create a fair and motivating environment for progress. We won't scream at you for failing a mechanic but we will point it out and work with you to correct it so we can progress together. Loot will be distributed via RcLootcouncil as evenly as possible focusing on gearing the raid as a whole. We will respect you at all times. Progress is important to us but the atmosphere of the raids must be maintained a good personality and a sense of humor is a must.

      What we expect from you:
      During your trial period we will be looking at your mastery over your class. Your attendance and attitude during raids. Your awareness of boss fights and mechanics, along with your ability to adapt and learn.

      Our recruitment priority is listed above, but there is always opportunity for outstanding players.

      Feel free to apply via the website, or add me on bnet if you want a chat, Nobbykinz#2994 all questions welcome.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 7/9M Tomb of Sargeras | 10/10M Nighthold | 3/3M Trial of Valor | 7/7M Emerald Nightmare   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   1 Healer
      High: Shadow Priest, Mage
       
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 920. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you

      Hello everyone.
       
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
       
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
       
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
       
      Here's my armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/pt-br/character/azralon/piccola
       
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!
