Having a bit of trouble with dps.

My name is Monics from Medivh. I've been having trouble sustaining over 145k dps as an arms warrior. I have a 522 pvp sword as an option for another sword if I were to go fury. Would it be wise to switch to fury hoping for better chance at higher dps? I'm a casual player my ilvl is 540 and I'd really like some help. And if you do decide to reply with helpful hints and advice please keep it to a "DPS for dummies" standard as I don't know details about spells et cetera. Thanks and may the loot be forever in your favor!

There isn't much I can do to help with that little information, but I'll do my best.

 

Your gear looks fine, though you could reforge the hit on your boots to something else since you're really high above the hit cap. 

 

If I were you, I would stay arms for now, because Fury can be really confusing to newcomers and takes a lot of time and practice to master. If you want to give it a try, go for it (a 522 weapon isn't horrible for your offhand especially if it has crit on it), though be aware that you may get worse results than arms until you practice Fury a lot.

 

As far as Arms goes, make sure that you hit Mortal Strike on cooldown. It is by far your most important ability, since it generates rage to cast your other stuff and Taste for Blood charges that allow you to cast overpower. If mortal strike is on CD, you want to use Colossus Smash if it's not already active on your target. Just watch out for its cooldown sometimes getting reset, be ready to use it asap when it happens. 

 

If Colossus Smash is active on your target, you want to use Mortal Strike > Slam (if you have 40+ rage) > Overpower.

If Colossus Smash is not active, you want to use Mortal Strike > Colossus Smash > Slam (if you have 80+ rage) > Overpower.

If, in either situation, you get close to maxing out your rage, you want to hit Heroic Strike once to dump a bit of it.

 

This is a quick overview of what arms should look like on single target, though I've omitted quite a lot of details. I won't go in too many details for AoE either, but there is the official Icy-Veins Arms warrior guide that is very detailed, and Sajakain also has another small guide in the stickies in this forums.

 

I hope this helps you, and feel free to ask any other question you have,

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 5/8H
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING (340+ ilvl)
      Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Healer & DPS for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?
