Arms help

2 posts in this topic

Hello! Just another desperate warrior, seeking to improve in any possible way!

Im Seagaard, from Ravencrest:

Im struggling doing as much DPS as i would want, and i am looking into possible changes. I know a 4 set bonus will be an obvious improvement, but i just dont think that is the only thing that makes my dps lack. 

Here is a log of me wiping (alot) with my guild on Avatar.

I know its not much, but there is a couple of good tries in there. 

Any help or criticism is appreciated :)

Good afternoon, Seagaard.

I want to apologize for not getting to your thread sooner; as I've explained to others today I've had a busy week and simply haven't had the opportunity to sit down and address these threads adequately. With that being said, I hope you're able to find this reply and I hope it helps.


Honestly, gauging wipes on logs is not the best. You can die at various times, numbers are a bit skewed due to deaths, problems overall in the encounter can force you out of an ideal situation. There's a lot so.... using wipes to evaluate performance is far from ideal. That aside, however, I was able to find an adequate log of yourself.

Goroth Heroic (4:14), September 6, 2017

With this log in mind, I've taken note of a couple things:

  • 100% on all consumables. Good job. Rune, food, flasks, and two potions. The only very minor thing I would change here is your food choice. You used 375 Mastery (which isn't bad) but the 500 strength from the Suramar feast is better.
  • You do not have your set bonuses from Tier 20. The 4PC is a significant damage boost that you don't have access to.
  • Your legendaries aren't the best; they're not bad, but they're not the best. Ideally you'd want the helm and a good secondary (which is usually the ring but as long as it's not a useless legendary it should be fine). The helm, though, is something you really want.
  • Your trinkets, on this log, are horrible. You have a Versatility stat stick and possibly the worst crit trinket you can have. I realize the loot gods may not be favorable but you really want to find better trinkets. Stat sticks, Engine of Eradication, Cradle of Anguish. If you find a stat stick, make sure it's Mastery and not Versatility.

As far as your rotation / priority execution goes, it's pretty clean with the gear you have. The only thing I found was that you mis-cast a Mortal Strike in your Execute phase just once. That's not bad at all. (You cast Mortal Strike with no stacks of Executioner's Precvision up). Everything else was on point.

So, in short, hope you get the legendary helm, definitely get your 4PC set bonus as a priority, and find some better trinkets. Once your gear is squared away, you'll find your numbers even higher than what they are. (With everything pointed out here, you still managed to hit almost 1M DPS; you're doing fine).

      I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen. Links to armory and mrrobot below.
      Defile damage breakdown, Arbiter damage breakdown
      I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.

      Hey all
      As the title says im having issues with low dps atm, when i sim myself on raidbots im supposed to do 1.3mil dps ish (iknow its perfect conditions) but atm im roughly doing hardly 1mil unless its execute phase. Any tips or suggestions i can do to improve my performence.
      Here's a log for examination pretty much represent my overall performence for single target bosses:

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      I'm sure this is a popular topic so I apologize if this is the 1 millionth time you've seen this.
      I haven't played a level capped character since probably Wrath of the Lich King.  Friends are sucking me back in and I'm thinking about picking up Warrior.  I used to love tanking as a warrior but unfortunately (or fortunately) it looks like all the tank slots are filled.  Basically my question is, is rolling Warrior a wise choice?  Are they fun to play?  Pretty sure id pick Fury as my DPS spec but I don't know how it or arms plays now. I want to be competitive on the meters against my guildmates but I don't think we're going to be super hardcore.
      I suppose this is "living the dream" but i want to be near the top of the DPS charts while having fun doing it. Is the warrior for me? Other classes I was looking at were Shadow Priest, Hunter, or Death Knight.
      I guess I should also mention that I haven't played in a LONG time so ill probably be doing things like world pvp, BGs, 5-mans, ect.  I'm not an Arena type of person.
