    Arms warrior DPS problem

    Hello. I am playing a Warrior with the spec of Arms and having troubling keeping up, I know for fact that fury is better yes - but I have no intention of hardcore raiding so Arms should be fine and I enjoy it much more. However as said I have troubles keeping up.

    Elegon execute phase around 80k
    Non execute phase around 57-65k

    My rotation is MS>CS>slam(above80)>overpower>HS if TfB proc

    Link to armory: cant post link due to new account - search sensisativa (wow eu) sylvanas worgen warrior

    Any help appreciated, because I stand clueless here. I sim my character to 69k dps so I am doing something wrong.

    I would suggest a different rotation.

    CS (if not up) > MS > OP > Slam (if CS/MS/OP not available) > HS (if > 80 Rage).

    If you lack the Rage to use any ability, use Dragon's Roar.

    This looks pretty good, my only uncertainity is CS vs MS. Except that Dragon Roar should be used basically on cooldown together with bloodbath.

    From what I've tried of Arms, you shouldn't have an downtime while dpsing.
    MS on cd.
    CS on cd / debuff isn't still on boss.
    Slam (>60 rage or if OP available)
    Dragon Roar
    Overpower
    Shout (<30 rage)
    Heroic Throw
    Shout

    Heroic Strike as long as it won't drop you below 60 rage (in case you are forced to double slam for rotation), although rage should be pooled for CS.
    Heroic Leap should be used on CD, assuming you won't lose uptime on boss.

    EDIT: When I switched from Fury to Arms for testing, it only pulled about a few Ks less (like 7k). I feel the average of Arms damage is meh, while fury kind of just goes up and down for a slightly better average.
