Best Alliance Races for Arms Warrior
It is worth to note that The Human Spirit is also great, giving you more secondary stats.
Gnome is competitive with humans because of Escape Artist, allowing you to frequently break roots, which is one of Arms Warrior's greatest counters. The additional Rage gained from Expansive Mind is not particularly great, but is a bonus regardless.
Best Horde Races for Arms Warrior
- Blood Elf
Orc is the best race on Horde because of Hardiness, which grants you the benefits of Relentless against stuns. This racial also stacks with similar effects, like the Legendary effect Sephuz's Proclamation. You gain a good amount of primary stat from Blood Fury, and is off the global cooldown, so use it together with Warbreaker for a good amount of extra burst.
Blood Elves are primarily picked because of Arcane Torrent, which can purge off important buffs like Blessing of Protection or Combustion. It is entirely random what buff you purge off, and we would not recommend picking Blood Elf over Orc.
