Welcome to the Warrior Simple Questions thread. This thread is for all your simple questions which you expect to have simple answers and thus do not require their own thread.

Note that all forum rules still apply: we said simple questions, not stupid questions (which have no place on these forums). You're still expected to make a reasonable effort to find the answer yourself by searching and reading the threads and making use of spreadsheets and any other tools that may be available. If, however, you're fairly confident that your question is not easily answered with available information, but don't think it will generate sufficient discussion to require it's own thread, this is the place to ask.

Just wanting to double check this assumption: as far as pve is concerned, is it safe to say that it's possible to keybind MS and CS to the same key, putting CS on priority, at no dps loss? I can't think of a single instance where you would want to cast MS over CS, and you'd still be able to use MS when CS is on cooldown.

You don't want to cast CS when your CS debuff is still on the target, like a Sudden Death proc right after you used CS.

Is it possible to make a macro for slam with inner rage use? something like

#showtooltip slam
/cast Inner Rage
/cast Slam
/cancelaura Inner Rage

For now the macro works....but you have to use it 2 times. And if it is possible...Is it possible to get the flash effect of the procc to get shown on the macro button?

EDIT: Ok the flash effect isn't realy needed because of the Blizzard version of the power aura proccs.

Is Rude Interruption still better than other talents given that it (currently) is consumed on your next yellow swing?

E: for Arms PvE that is

Ex2: After some slight testing, only MS and OP will consume it. Slam, CS, Rend or HS won't consume it, haven't tested execute yet. Most likely a bug, but still wondering if I should spec out of Rude Interruption for the time being.

Having only recently come back to the game after a long break I only got experience from Fury side of things so far, but Rude Interruption isn't supposed to work like that. Instead it's a general 5% damage buff for 15/30 seconds like the tooltip states.

Perhaps it's bugged and gets overwritten by Lambs to the Slaughter?

After testing it in heroics today I'm quite sure that Lambs to the Slaughter is overriding it, not sure if it's intended to be that way or it's currently bugged. For PvE arms this frees up two points for either Executioner or Blood and Thunder.

What should we be using in our ranged slot? I can't find a single strength non-tank 333+ blue item for us on wowhead.

There is none. The best is probably the Vortex Pinnacle ranged tank weapon.

Well, Thundercall has 95 Str, 68 mastery and 56 parry rating(40% reforge), so this should be the pre epic BiS ranged.

At the moment the ilvl restriction on [Eternal Belt Buckle] is not working correctly, but this will be fixed soon

Also the current gemming situation seems to be a bit odd. There are no green gems with str on them (which are required should the meta activation req stay in place) and the "best" available is mastery / hit. Needless to say the loss of DPS from gemming these stats instead of pure str outweighs the loss of one meta, especially when the bonus effect is critical damage. Just wondering if it would be worth going for the runspeed increase meta (1red, one blue, one yellow activation) and chanting boots for something a little more DPS friendly is the way forward at the moment. With hit as well i'm finding the benefits from gemming out for it thanks to the amount required per % are not as prolific as going pure str, but again these are only my observations and currently I have no figures to back this up with.

if you need to use something, just use berserking. The materials are extremely cheap since the expansion.

Avalanche is also a good enchant for its price. It's 2% from my damage at >10k dps.

My question: Fury spec - "Deep Wounds 3/3 vs Incite 3/3"

This probably will be a back and forth as gear progressively gets better.

My theory:
Incite gives a 100% chance to give a crit on next HS and 15% crit on HS (additional), but Deep wounds does 48% of your weapons *average damage* over 6 seconds.

I'm thinking Deep Wounds 3/3 and Incite 2/3.

As we get more gear, that 15% crit would be mute because we'll have so much crit anyway. So rather than go for the crit go for the direct damage. Furthermore, Incite has a 6 sec (Internal or Regular?) Cooldown.

Thoughts or comments?

Execute will also consume the RI buff as arms. Some fury warriors have also reported that RI gets consumed with execute (No Lambs to the Slaughter buff) so I did some testing. I talented OUT of Lambs to the Slaughter and got 2/2 Rude Interruptions and had an 85 duel me to test out MS, Overpower, and Execute. Even without the LttS talent, Rude Interruptions -still- got consumed after casting any of those 3 abilities. It might be one of those funky bugs where part of the LttS talent isn't unlearned properly, along side with already causing conflict with RI to begin with. I also ticketed a GM about this bug, but he believes that it is not "broken".

For tanks:

At what % do parry & dodge become to show diminishing returns?

How does Shield Block convert overflow avoidance into critical block? I have 68% avoidance + block, and 93% with Shield Block up, but the tooltip for the buff is reporting that I have 18% additional chance to critical block, with no overflow.

As of today Rude Interruption is no longer consumed by Lambs. It is now a viable talent investment again.

I humbly submit there's a difference between kicking someone when they're down and kicking someone when they're :downs:
