  • Impale IconImpale offers a nice DPS increase on your critical strikes.
  • Death Wish IconDeath Wish is now in the Arms tree. It is still a great DPS cooldown.
  • You have 5 points to put into either Sword Specialization IconSword Specialization. Mace Specialization IconMace Specialization, or Poleaxe Specialization IconPoleaxe Specialization, depending on the weapon type you have.
  • Blood Frenzy IconBlood Frenzy is the entire reason you spec as Arms. It causes bleeding enemies to take 2%/4% more Physical damage from all sources.
3.2.

Fury Tree

  • Improved Demoralizing Shout IconImproved Demoralizing Shout may need to be taken if no other Warrior has it in your raid.
  • Commanding Presence IconCommanding Presence buffs the Attack Power granted by your Battle Shout IconBattle Shout, giving your party higher damage output.
  • Improved Slam IconImproved Slam reduces the cast time of Slam IconSlam by 1 second. It makes Slam a great ability to use often.
