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,

      It's a few months later (what with delays and distractions and getting old and all that), but I just wanted to start by saying THANK YOU to those who helped me with amazing advice on levelling my fire mage alt. It made all the difference - you guys rock.
      I finally dinged 110 the other day and went into a few instances and raid finders with her. As a caster noob - I main a feral - there are a few things I've noticed and am unsure about.
      The guide here on Icy Veins recommends Dragon's Breath for AoE of 3+ grouped mobs. I may have overlooked something, but I can't for the life of me find anything on the *range* of Dragon's breath. The animation makes me think I need to stand right in front of the mobs to hit them, but that can't be right, I'm supposed to be ranged and standing a good bit away - aren't I?  During levelling, I've gotten used to casting Living Bomb regardless of how many mobs I'm facing. The guide has it exclusively as an AoE ability. Is that true, or is it worth casting on a single target (boss)? Does meteor "work" on huge bosses who are standing behind a ledge/cliff, in the manner of Engine of Souls (Desolate Host) or Garothi Worldbreaker? I try placing it as close to the edge of the "cliff" as possible, does that mean it'll hit the boss?

      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: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/TdhwyZKXq2rtjbxF/#fight=last&type=damage-done&source=14

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
