Hey, any chance of BIS weapons for human/orcs? how would the weapon skill racial modify their BiS list?

 

Thanks for all the effort you put into this great guide!

Thanks man, I'm always looking to improve it and, in fact, be sure to check again tomorrow or later to find out a lot of changes and improvements which I'm writing at this precise moment 🙂

Relative to BiS weapons to Humans / Orcs, its true that they are often different due to the racials, so I will try and put that in the bis list. Do keep in mind that, in some situations, the bis weapon's power is larger than what you would gain from the racial with a different weapon. Dal'Rend set is certainly such a case, as the alternatives for Orcs are either 2h axes or epic boe lowish level axes such as Flurry Axe which, even with Orc racial, end up being about as good as the Dal'Rend set.

But hey, this is Horde we're talking about so I'm thinking of either getting Edgemasters to make up for this until Onyxia gives me two Deathbringers so I can own in proper epic axes or straight up going into raiding with a slam / 2h fury spec until I get those, as it is very competitive at this level of gear.

Will try to talk a bit about this in the revamped bis guide 😉

Hi i am wondering is the leveling guide talent tree with the level slider suppose to be different than the  Classic Warrior DPS Spec guide?  If you move the Slider to lvl 60 it is different than what it says your talents should be at level 60 on the Classic Warrior DPS Spec Guide.

It is supposed to be different. Leveling talents are meant to help you level faster, while the talents in the DPS Spec Guide are meant to make you maximize your damage in raids.

There are some overlaps between the two but many things that are distinctly different, too. Perhaps the best example is Impale Icon Impale. It is a relatively bad talent while leveling because your gear is bad, and thus your critical chance is low and so is your Rage generation, which causes your special attack crits (yellow crits, the only attacks affected by this talent) to be a negligible part of your total damage. This means its not taken as a leveling talent.

However, in the end game, Impale Icon Impale is great, especially as you gear up and thus benefit more and more from your special attack crits. So we advise taking it on our end game DPS Warrior builds.

Hope this clarified it for you!

Great question! I'd say Sulfuras is about on par with BRE if you play as 2H fury (so basically, in PvE).

In PvP they both feel very different, because of Arms' Mace Specialization vs Sword Specialization. BRE will deal higher damage / burst, especially when the armor debuff procs on players who already have low armor to begin with, while Sulfuras will sometimes stun your target, allowing your group to blast them away more easily.

Both weapons are great, huge congratulations that you managed to get your hands on one of them!

Thank you!

When do you think it will be replaced for PvE damage? edge of insanity? or naxx weaps only?

Dark Edge is pretty good if you are an Orc, otherwise Naxx weapons only or straight up never if the later bosses have more armor, and thus make full use of BRE's special effect.

I highly doubt the bosses will have more armor than what we saw on pservers.
