Best Enchants for Arms Warrior
Consumables for Arms Warrior
Best Flasks and Potions for Arms
Phial of Tepid Versatility and Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage are the best phials in all situations, with the former adding more defensive value and the latter boasting higher damage. Choose between the two based on the situation, and remember that a dead DPS does not deal any.
Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power is the best combat potion, used with other cooldowns, during Execute phases or other periods in which the target takes increased damage.
Howling Rune or Buzzing Rune depending on your current stats.
Refreshing Healing Potion or Healthstone should be used for combat healing.
Best Food for Arms
You should eat from the Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak when possible, and otherwise Critical Strike food ( Filet of Fangs or a variant featuring Critical Strike such as Revenge, Served Cold, Feisty Fish Sticks, or Thousandbone Tongueslicer if more readily available).
Augment Runes for Arms
In addition, if you can afford it, you should use Draconic Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of the consumable runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
