Arms Warrior Class Guide

Post by FENSTRAV » Sun Nov 17, 2019 5:43 pm

This talent tree is considered to be the best with stats capped:


Major Glyphs
  • Glyph of Mortal Strike – may be changed with the 1st build
    Glyph of Rending
    Glyph of Execution
Minor Glyphs
  • Glyph of Charge
    Glyph of Enduring Victory
    Glyph of Bloodrage
Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.

  • Relentless Earthsiege Diamond
Red & Yellow
  • Fractured Cardinal Ruby
    Bold Cardinal Ruby
    Inscribed Ametrine
    Etched Ametrine
  • Nightmare Tear x1
    Bold Cardinal Ruby

Head – Arcanum of Torment
Shoulder – Greater Inscription of the Axe
Cloak – Enchant Cloak - Major Agility
Chest – Enchant Chest - Powerful Stats
Bracers – Enchant Bracers - Greater Assault
Gloves – Enchant Gloves - Crusher
Waist – Eternal Belt Buckle
Legs – Icescale Leg Armor
Boots – Enchant Boots - Cat's Swiftness or Enchant Boots - Greater Assault
Weapons – Enchant Weapon - Berserking

Gameplay & Rotations

Arms don’t have that much of a Rotation. Their gameplay is based on skill procs.

When Sudden Death procs, you use Execute

Taste for Blood is procced by Rend. Taste for Blood lets you use Overpower

Execute – Overpower – Mortal Strike or Heroic Strike

Last, but not least Arms Warriors Expertise rating is a very questionable topic. Some don’t cap it to have more Overpower procs.

Handy guide for starters pve arms. Although at lesser quality eq I would not be afraid to pick up unbridled wrath for a bit better rage income. You either go full imrpoved shouts or not at all and even improved shout is overwritten by BoM of ret pala who should have it improved. Commanding shout... 500(?) extra hp is handy but not so much. I prefer to pick up imp cleave and piercing howl, especially if I go to LK fight. On higher equipment levels when you have enough crit and arp I would suggest incite spec but that needs to be tested and compared when slam gets repaired on this server. Also do not go arp gemming unless you can get to at least 1100 arp +140 arp from battle stance. Till then gem all by +20str and 10str + 10crit if you feel need of a bit more crit and there is nice socket bonus. Also you definitely want to get hit and expertise capped, especially with imp execute build (okay if you are 2 expertise doable but still, 21 at this server is best)

Going through the forum after months I just want to point out you need more expertise nowdays as it got repaired, thus for imp Exe spec you should go for 26 expertise (24 min). But also while commenting, let me point out my guide (Lykfar's) on PvE arms that mainly focuses on Incite spec. Though also not refreshed for some months it is still valid and almost all if not all in there still stands. Btw am usually top 3 dps in most of the fights in icc 25hc except for bad rng or latency; overdpsing 80-90% of Alli fury wars on the server.
