I'm ruling out it out because its a terrible post. You don't need to sign you posts we know who you are. You need to make your posts obnoxious with large bold font 'headers' for every 'section'. Aside from that this is a giant pile of "someone do the work for me I'm too lazy to run a spreadsheet and sim it myself." Nope, we don't do that.
Hey guys. I had a question about an Arms Warrior build, so I thought I'd come to the best and get solid answers.
My question is this: would an Arms build with stacked, large amounts of haste, attack power and Sword Specialization be a viable DPS build? The build would be as follows: Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft
The class would be a Dwarf, as I'm currently alliance and I'd rather have the attack power racial boost to invisibility (Shadowmeld) or EMFH.
Once again, I haven't actually made this character yet, but my rotation would likely be: Rend > Mortal Strike > Heroic Strike (whenever) with Overpower and Execute when available.
Now, I know that Slam wouldn't fit with the swing timers, but couldn't the faster hits (more SS procs and more Sudden Death availability) offset the loss of Slam?
A few gear pieces would be Herkuml War Token (153 haste), Tears of Bitter Anguish (73 haste, 410 haste proc), Signet of Edward the Odd (29 haste, 59 attack power and 125 haste proc), Quel'Denar, Might of the Faithful (91 haste) and Hyperspeed Accelerators (Engineering, 340 haste for 12 seconds every minute), among other plate haste gear. Each slot would have a Stark Ametrine, providing another +20 attack power (for Execute) and +10 haste.
Luckily, there is a fair amount of haste plate gear available, so I'm not concerned in that regard.
I just picture a warrior wielding a 2h sword, swinging ridiculously fast, getting double-hits frequently (due to SS) and executing very often. He'd also have 3 haste procs/abilities and an attack power ability each minute or two.
(Please, please, please don't just rule it out because conventional wisdom tells you to manage haste for Slam's sake... it's a different idea, and I'd like to see if it's viable.)
Thanks a LOT for any and all feedback.
