If you’ve been disappointed with your raid damage recently follow these eight simple steps to pump your warrior up!

1. Learn the proper rotation! Check our Arms warrior guide.

Undead Arms Warrior2. Your weapon is what will make the largest difference in your DPS. So if you are too low ilvl (item level) to queue for LFR or just unlucky with weapon drops, then PvP till you can get an honor point weapon (ilvl 498). If you have better than 498 weapon then just keep doing LFR/Flex raids and skip to the next step.

3. LFR/Timeless Isle/PvP for gear. Try to get most of your gear from LFR and timeless items and only use honor for left over parts. Make sure to kill a celestial on timeless isle each week for a chance at some nice ilvl 553 gear.

4. Reforge all your gear to Str>Expertise & Hit both to 7.5%>Crit>Haste>Mastery.
You can find the item reforgers by asking a guard in any of the major cities.

5. Get proper gems for your equipment and try to get the color bonuses. Check out our warrior gem recommendations.

6.  Get glyphs for your favorite abilities. Glyph of Unending Rage is required for the +20 to maximum rage!

7. Make sure to use strength flasks during raids for an extra 1000 strength.

8. Get a profession that can create items that help dps, like Engineering trinkets or Blacksmithing gem sockets.

If you’re thinking about leveling up a new class then check out our leveling guide review for info about the fastest way to get all your alts to 90. I even got to 90 in under 48 hours.

If you follow my eight-step plan to success then you should find an increase in your damage and jealous dps meter-watchers.

PvP Gear Vs PvE Gear

The PvE Gear Vs. PvP Gear question often comes up:

  • Can I (or should I) use PvP gear in PvE?
  • Can I (or should I) use PvE gear in PvP?

So what about it, then? First off…

  • I Don't Have My PvP GearReslience is a stat that reduces damage done to you by other players. It used to be on high level PvP gear, but it was removed in patch 5.3. It still exists on lower level gear. In patch 5.4 the resilience number is 72%, regardless of the gear that you’re wearing. So that shot you do to another player does not hit for 100k, it hits for about 28k. It’s completely irrelevant in PvE.
  • PvP Power only appear on high level PvP gear and adds to the damage you do to players, and only players, much like Attack Power or Spell Power. It’s also completely irrelevant in PvE.

If you prepare, It should only take a few days to get all the Pilgrim’s Bounty Achievements. In order to complete all of the Achievements you will need to get a Pilgrim’s Hat, a pilgrim chest piece, and 8 of the Turkey Shooters.

Here are the items you can get from daily quests:

So, you’ll need 8 Turkey Shooters, a Pilgrim’s Hat, and any one of the chest pieces (Attire, Dress, or Robe.) The Boots are optional.

Undead DKAs you know we have a bunch of class guides on this site, covering most specs. All of those guides are still there and any old links you might have still work. There are a few cases where the old page still exists but will bounce you to a page on this blog (such as the DK leveling guide.) That’s handled by a redirect and it seems to be working well.

If an old guide needs to be re-written (and many do) then the new guide will appear on this part of the site and the old guide will either have a link to the new one or redirect appropriately. In either case, it should be easy to find. Say something if it isn’t.

With the new blog format for the home page the links to the individual guides might not be as instantly obvious as before. What I’ve done to make things a bit easier is create a class index page for each class. Hit the index page (links below) and all the guides for that class will be listed there. (And I’m still poking Rikto to do those DK guides… Guess I’ll have to do them myself.)

Here’s a direct link to each of those index pages. You’ll be able to access the guides you want from there. You can see the same links on the left navbar.

Suggestions as to what any guide needs, or what you want to see, are always appreciated.
