somone learn me how to arms

Warrior
becasue so far its just a really bad version of my DK. i really cant tell what is wrong with my damage yes i have 2 resil gems and not much for enchants but i dont see how another 100~ str is going to turn 10k over powers into something much larger.
Use colossus smash.

Whatever you see with that up, is about as big as you're going to see with arms.
necrotic strike does more outright dmg then MS its kind of depressing
And yet we do more dps. AMAZING
pvp wise dawg
Might want to clarify if you want pvp or pve advice on arms dps. While both require LttS build up, there are tricks that will improve one and not be useful at all for the other.

ok, thats kind of creepy ... You answered my question before I finished posting it.

PvP wise, you'll want a healer to dispell spam you to keep uptime, and once you get a chance, its burst time. Once you slam them for a little bit, cause them to burn a couple cooldowns, than Throw down, pop cooldowns and go for broke. If you can line up a charge for the jugger buff that will help the scare panic inducing factor.

Of course arenas you most likely won't get much of a chance to do any of this. I don't do much pvp compared to a lot of the others around, but this seems to be the usual msg they convey.
For pvp, go read Squirrelnut's sticky on these forums. SOLID info in there. And if your gear is the same for your Arms spec as it is for your prot spec, it's a gear issue. Weapon is also a big deal, and I can't see what you are using for Arms. More info you give, more answers you can get.
Dont gem for attack power give a try to critical and agility, this season gears are so low on critical that 80% of the warriors run on less or around 10% critical rating and then pop reck to do any decent damage which give the big 20% dmg taken drawback. From my calculation i'll reach around 17% critical which is twice what most warriors get, ill lose around 2000 attack power but mixed with incite ill reach over 30% crit HS and 27% with MS back to a decent standard. Ill also get the badge of conquest which will increase it by around 8% so in the end I wont even need to pop reck most of the time and when I will bon chance to whatever im bursting.

Not sure if good troll or bad idea.

Well for PvP:
1st thing you have to establish is your spec as arms, you can take impro slam spec if your ms is sitting under 100, if your ms is over 100 play incite spec.
2nd thing is your set up, you have to use almost EVERY spell you have. My "rotation" for pvp is open with charge/ham macro, get rend up, csmash, op/hs at the same time, then MS, and cast 1-2 slams, that's a general rotation for slam spec warriors.
3rd is your macro set up, macros are a warriors best friend! You can use them to free up sooo many keybinds! Watch this video to get some of the best macros out there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0SZgzBiTCQ
This video goes over important macros/addons for warriors!
4th: Practise every day, run 2-3 bg's a day and consistently practise on your warrior!
I hope this helps you out a bit!
Another Warrior QQ thread... Get better or reroll. No changes are coming.

And if you really want to improve, there are plenty of guides / videos, so no point posting a new QQ thread about it.
I really like the rotting skull for pvp. lots o crit. I still have tons o resil rocking it.
For PvP - stick to your DK, unless you really really want to get frustrated for some reason.
