Welcome to our MoP Remix Guide for Arms Warrior! This page contains everything you need to know about getting the most out of your Arms Warrior in the Patch 10.2.7 special feature, Mists of Pandaria: Remix.

Arms is very strong leveling spec in MoP Remix, due to the early multitarget capabilities of Sweeping Strikes Icon Sweeping Strikes, minimally required damage build-up, and strong survivability from Victory Rush Icon Victory Rush. This page is focused only on Arms Warrior in MoP Remix. If you want to know more about MoP Remix in general, such as its rewards, check out our dedicated page below.

Best MoP Remix Leveling Build for Arms Warrior

Overall Leveling Build Single Target Raid Boss Leveling Build

Overall Leveling Build

Whether you decide on leveling out in the open world or prioritize Dungeons and Raids, we recommend using the same hybrid Bladestorm build, as it retains most of Arms single target damage, while also bringing several AoE tools.


Single Target Raid Boss Leveling Build

For rushing down single-target raid bosses, we instead recommend this pure single target build, though two-target boss encounters may opt for Improved Sweeping Strikes Icon Improved Sweeping Strikes instead of Strength of Arms Icon Strength of Arms.

    You will have a tremendous amount of stats as you start unlocking all the available Gem slots on gear, and Arms Warriors primarily to stack Critical Strike and Haste, although they will want to dip into Versatility and Mastery beyond 40%.
