Hi, I realise this might be a bit abstract but bear with me.
I am usually playing Protection in PvE and Arms in PvP. However, my guild is struggling to find decent dps so I am seeing if it's viable for me to go Arms. I was hitting the raider's dummy up at the shrine of two moons and hitting roughly 40k dps. I realise this is without all the raid buffs/food/flasks etc, but it feels so weak.
Don't mind the reforging/gemming too much (am over hit cap for example), I was trying out Fury yesterday but that was a staggering 10k lower dps than what I was doing as Arms, however I forgot to reforge/gem/enchant back to what I had. If you want to see how my gear usually looks, you can check this out and hit the "Optimize!" button:
Perhaps. What would really help us out is if you post in the Fix my DPS sticky with a LFR log so we can analyze your rotation w/ cooldowns and full raid buffs.
Of course we can just sim your character, but the sim is not how you yourself execute your rotation. With that evidence, we can help you GET to what you should be doing, knocking out two birds with one stone I hope.
While I do agree that logs would be helpful, your ilvl is only 464. With that being said, doing 40K+ without buffs on the raider dummy seems pretty good if you were hitting it for at least 5 minutes or so. Your DPS will go up greatly with some gear.
Which dummies are you hitting? The boss level dummies? Weapons do matter a lot to warriors usually, sadly I don't have access to better weapons currently.
I must admit the 40k was with fairly poor cooldown management since I was kinda tired at the time, haha. I will try again tonight while managing by cooldowns better.
Are there cooldowns you usually pop together? I usually do Blood Fury + Trinket, and Avatar/Skull Banner/Reck. At the start of the right I usually pop all of those together. I also have to get much better at using Deadly Calm. Do you usually use that when around 80 rage or so?
