Arms Warrior in Uldir

This page is not a complete raid guide for Uldir . It is a boss-by-boss breakdown of talent suggestions, Warrior specific optimizations, as well as other tips and tricks. Initially, this page will focus on Normal and Heroic mode, with Mythic optimizations added once the difficulty is released.

Arms Warriors are currently very competitive in both single and multitarget encounters, with an emphasis on two-target cleave and burst AoE, as well as powerful defensives and high mobility, which will help keep Arms Warriors in the fight longer than other melee.


Talent Cheatsheet




Arms Warrior Playstyle on Taloc

  • Time the use of your Colossus Smash Icon Colossus Smash so that you are not using it immediately before Taloc casts Plasma Discharge Icon Plasma Discharge.
  • If you are targeted by Plasma Discharge Icon Plasma Discharge, use Heroic Leap Icon Heroic Leap to quickly move away from the raid and Charge Icon Charge to get back after the debuff has expired.
  • Defensive Stance Icon Defensive Stance can be used to reduce damage taken during Plasma Discharge Icon Plasma Discharge, although it comes at the cost of being able to Heroic Leap Icon Heroic Leap and keep up with the boss less.
  • When Taloc casts Cudgel of Gore Icon Cudgel of Gore at 100 energy, there is a short delay between reaching the tank and dealing damage. Do not use Charge Icon Charge to catch up to the boss until after the damage goes out, or else it will kill you.
  • In Phase Two and Three, Sweeping Strikes Icon Sweeping Strikes can be used to hit two targets at the same time, which will also refund Rage with Collateral Damage Icon Collateral Damage talented. If your raid is good at grouping multiple adds together, then Warbreaker Icon Warbreaker can be used instead alongside Bladestorm Icon Bladestorm to quickly kill them.
  • Taloc starts at 65% health, which means he reaches 35% much faster than other encounters of the same length, making Massacre Icon Massacre the perfect talent, usable throughout the entirety of Phase Three.
