I'm taking a small hiatus from this thread. Trust in the other warriors, they are highly intelligent, often moreso then me !

Requiel's #1 Fan.
I'll look at armories now, but I am not digging through logs.
Ok, in order:
Haste to Crit on your shoulders, and try to get the GL ones, the blue PvP ones are very bad. Try doing some arena for the PvP bracers to make up for the lost Exp, they cost 1250 CP and you can get that in 30 minutes easily. Bladed Tempest ring isn’t that great, just camp Galleon (yeah right) or hope you get lucky on LFR Tsulong. The heroic one is BiS though. You’re 1.4% over the exp cap, so change your reforging around and change the cog wheel in your Dragon. Do SB over and over for the Carbuncle, that thing is very very good. Your crit is pretty low. I find Mastery > Hit over 7.5% by only a very small margin, so I’d reforge mastery to hit, it makes rage a lot easier. Like your Xmog btw, I was 1 rank away from being able to use it now on my Hunter.
Oh, you’re missing 1 glyph. I’d use BT if your healers have trouble, Csmash if you sunder, and the Enrage speed one otherwise, and Raging Wind on AoE fights.
Not sure why you need help, you’re more geared than I am. I can’t look through logs now but I might later. Although, idk why you have that PvP trinket on, and your 502 Elegion should be in your mainhand (be careful with the weapon swap macros- mine tried to put my 476 one in my offhand yesterday on Ambershaper). Reck glyph is also worse than no glyph at all I have heard.
Bloodbath > Stormbolt I think, but it’s a matter of personal preference as TG (higher weapon damage). See above for reck glyph. Everything else looks good. Second Wind is a good talent because you can spec it and forget it, but for burst enraged regen is better.
Use a crafty in your chest red socket, and reforge the haste to exp instead of the expertise on your bracers. Get the darkmoon trinket, or at least the Carbonic Carbuncle. Your reforging is a bit odd, I’d run yourself through wowreforge (or even askmrrobot – it seems to not be dumb now). HL glyph helps a lot, even if you don’t use it for damage – more mobility. Don’t take impending victory – if you aren’t in melee range of the boss and you need a heal, you’re fucked. See above comment on Second Wind vs enraged regeneration.
For everyone, try wowreforge. It will be more accurate than my random looking over 4 people at once. Also, Mastery>>> hit over 7.5% for TG so don’t reforge mastery to hit for TG for ease of play.
Nevermind this post. :S

I sim at 83k dps but my last LFR spiritbinder kill has me at 93k dps, 2 previous kills (normal &LFR) both at 88k dps. I was wondering how accurate are the sims for arms atm? Might have something to do with jp/vp upgrades not showing on battlenet and the fight is fairly short but still the gap seems quite big.
I know the recklessness glyph isn't good for fury but is it worth it for arms? with OP already critcapping, CS resetting and pots/Lei Shen procs during the full 18 secs. Usually glyphed for unending rage, death from above and either bullrush or sweeping strikes. Any other suggestions are welcome too
Reckglyph for both specs if you ask me.

Hey all, I am back to playing my warrior after being on a lock for a while, I used to really enjoy playing my warrior but currently I can't seem to do as much dps as I think I should be doing, I ran Simcraft and it said I should be looking around about 52k in my current gear level but I'm not meeting that amount and I am not happy as I joined a new guild who is going to gear me up for heroic progress guilds as a friend vouched for me for being a good player but currently I am not doing nearly as much damage as they do.
My spec is Fury SMF
Item level is now 476
Armory - http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...3%ADc/advanced
Here is a couple of logs
On the last one I had race changed to orc for the racial, but as you can see I am below the tanks, damage wise and it's really depressing.
If there is anything you can see that will help me to increase my performance I would love to see it.
Synthetíc I am by no means as good as many of these warriors the roam these forums, so please feel free to wait for a reply from someone more knowledgeable than me. I'm basing my observations off of the first Log link, the 2nd one i didn't see you on, and the 3rd link wouldn't work for me. First thing that jumped out at me was you used Colossus Smash 11 times in 5:46. I don't know why, but that seems a little low to me. Are you making sure that you are pooling rage before using your Colossus Smash and then pouring everything you can in to it? I like planning my CS a bit a head of time. I'll hit Deadly Calm before CS for the heroic strike reduction in rage, then if I'm swimming in rage I'll hit CS and pour it on. Remember that HS is off the GCD and can be used at the same time as other abilities.
For me reading these forums and taking advice from these other warriors has helped me a huge amount. I raided last Monday at a ilvl 472 and was only pulling about 42k. I felt stupid for not knowing about pooling rage before CS. I went back in on Thursday and I was pulling 48k at ilvl 472. Knowledge is power.
You can get two potions in during your encounters, and remember to drop your banner during reck.
Take my advice with a grain of salt. Just trying to help
EDIT: I see your are just under hit cap and a bit over exp. Also I see you are on the crit>strength side of the fence. Not saying that is a bad thing, but I'd be interested in seeing what the more experienced warriors on here think. I go mostly strength and grab crit where ever i can, but not at the cost of strength.

simcraft starts saying strength ways better later in the game, but at lower ilvls crit > str. Should def be gemming and reforging crit before anything else
Let me rephrase myself: there's basically no way you'd end up with wanting to gem (because we aren't running into a str vs crit dilemma anywhere else) str over crit with gear from currently released content. So all right, 1 str > 1 crit but for gems etc, we get twice as much secondary stats. 2 crit >>>>>>> 1 str for me, with normalized stats 1 str = 1.00, 1 crit = 0.78. I'm 484 ilvl, SMF.

i wanted to ask you pro warriors how my friend could improve his dps, he's been playing warrior for a long time but sinds mop his dps isnt getting any better.
here is his logg for you guys
and here is his armory
i feel like he is doing something wrong cause with his item level he should be doing way more dps
Hi i've been told that our dps is not up there where it should but being unfamiliar with warrios i'm not sure what to look for in the raid log or on the armory in general
so thanks for saving our raid from wipes by helping increase the dps
here's a log
and here's the askmrrobot profile
8:21 Fight Time
37 Bloodthirsts when he should have done 111
19 Colossus Smashes when he should have done 25
1 Dragon Roar when he should have done 8
18 Raging Blow when he had the buff 27 times
1 Bloodbath of 8
1 Recklesness of 2
0 Deadly Calm
2 Berseker Rages out of 16
Hes not actually pressing his abilities it seems and even if he has to avoid chains or something these numbers just dont add up.
Hes fighting in Berserker Stance
He stood in 5 cobalt mines
All in all he should really look up some guides.
Hes standing in pools all day
No offense but your dps needs to get their act together just judging by the gear:
Pickins should be doing 75k+
Hunter should be doing 55k+
Naas should also attempt to hit a key like once or twice in 8 minutes, 6k is autoattack dps.
Healing actually seems fine, usually 3 healing is too much for stone guards but with the ammount of standing in pools and bombs going off it might be alright.

Your analysis is correct in general, but you're ignoring columns other than hits: he did 37 + 23 (crits) +1 (parry) bloodthirsts for a total of 61 bloodthirsts - still obviously far short of the 111 maximum possible bloodthirsts. Likewise he did 4 dragon roars, etc.
But yeah in general that warrior really needs to look up what he's meant to be doing, as there's a massive gulf between what he is doing and what he should be.
illustrates there's gaps of 10+ seconds where he's literally not pressing any ability, when with fury you can fill almost every gcd even with terrible crit chance/bad RNG.
Edit: actually I take that back - with 11% crit he will inevitably have gaps in his rotation, but still none should be bigger than 4.5 seconds (the cooldown of bloodthirst). If he enchanted his gear (he appears to not have a single enchant) and reforged properly he'd be in a much position from a gear point of view.

Thanks for the tips not using a warrior I was at a loss about what to look for now I can get back to him so if our dps didn't stand on the bad we could 2 heal it that's something I'll have to consider as well.
could anyone take a look at my post on this page thanks !
