PVE Arms Warrior Guide, WoW WotLK 3.3.5a

Welcome to the Arms Warrior DPS guide for World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King 3.3.5a. In this guide, you will learn about playing a Arms Warrior in a raid. The guide includes Talents, Glyphs, Gems, Enchantments, Add-ons, Gameplay & Skill rotation tips.

1. Talent Tree

Don't forget to change Sword/Mace/Poleaxe Specialization according to your weapon!

The first build is for people new to raiding. No top gear or stat caps. Here we have
a focus on rage generation with talents like Unbridled Wrath and Anger Management. Also, we take Weapon Mastery due to lack of Hit Rating
and Expertise. Slam is excluded from our rotation, which makes us more mobile, but do less damage

The second build is for people with stats capped. This build is considered the best DPS in 1 target.
Requires good gear.

Bracers – Greater Assault
Gloves – Crusher
Waist – Eternal Belt Buckle
Legs – Icescale Leg Armor
Boots – Cat's Swiftness or Greater Assault
Weapons – Berserking

5. 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.

6. Add-ons

Add-ons improve your gameplay by a lot. It is necessary to utilize add-ons, since they play a vital role in your performance, whether you are in a raid, arena or at the auction house.
