General Information

On this page, we explain how to easily play Arms Warrior in World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.0.7, using the simplest rotation, talent tree, stat priority, gear setup, etc., without sacrificing performance.



This section is intended for players who are new to the game or class, have no intentions of raiding Mythic difficulty, or simply want a more straightforward way to play their specialization without being overwhelmed by the numerous priorities and active abilities that need to be taken into consideration for optimal play.


The Basics of Arms Warrior

Arms is a combination damage dealer that focuses on big hits and bleeds. While the base rotation is not very complicated, talents can add extra attacks or replacement abilities in order to allow customization, though also meaning more playstyles to learn. The build showcased here is a simple yet effective play style, good for all types of game content, which is meant to help new players learn the fundamentals of Arms.

If you are completely new to Arms and need more information on the abilities available to you, you can check out our Spell Summary page.


Talent Choices for Arms Warriors

The talent set blow is a starter build created predominantly for ease of use and offering a range of capabilities to introduce players to Arms' single-target, burst, and AoE potential. While there are better performing builds for various pieces of content, they are also more specialized. Despite being the "easy mode", it is still quite effective for questing, dungeons, and entry raid content.

Remember that you can easily import the talent tree below into the game with either of the two "Copy Export String" buttons:

If you are looking for the best Arms Warrior talent builds, which do not compromise on performance for ease of use, you can find a more in-depth analysis on our full talents page below.


Stat Choices for Arms Warriors

The current Arms stat priority is as follows when using this build:

  1. Strength;
  2. Critical Strike;
  3. Haste;
  4. Mastery;
  5. Versatility.

Critical Strikes double all damage dealt, and increases Rage generation from auto-attacks, which helps reduce downtime within the rotation. Mastery increases damage taken by enemies, while Haste compresses the rotation, increasing auto-attack speed and reducing the time between ability casts. Finally, Versatility is a static damage increase, which also reduces damage taken by half the amount.

While the stat priority for classes is normally the same for both the Easy Mode page and our full guide, subtle differences may still occur. If you want to see a full explanation of the stat priority, as well as the absolute top choices for the priority, head to our full stats page below.


Basic Rotation for Arms Warrior

The typical rotation outlined below encompasses both single and multiple target situations using our suggested talents.

While all builds focus on the same principle of resetting the cooldown of Overpower Icon Overpower with Tactician Icon Tactician procs to buff Mortal Strike Icon Mortal Strike, and using it in turn to maintain Deep Wounds Icon Deep Wounds. Other talents add extra abilities, maintenance buffs, and replace other abilities within the rotation.
