Some content in this guide is based on PTR/early data

Updates will be made after raid progress is finished and more accurate information is available.


Welcome to the Arms Warrior DPS guide written by Revvez. I have been playing in Method since 2015 and have taken part in many world first end boss kills. For this guide the most relevant boss experience would be world first Helya, world first Kil’jaeden and world first G’huun where I played Arms Warrior.

What has changed

Changes since The Eternal Palace:

Early on in The Eternal Palace Arms received a small buff to all abilities. 

With the new patch Arms will have access to a really good azerite setup from the new raid, going from a weaker setup in the current patch. 

Overwhelming Power got nerfed, but Arms has struggled to find good gear with Overwhelming Power anyway, only one residuum chest being important with that trait so most other classes should get hit harder by this nerf.

At the time of writing this during 8.2 Arms is a good spec and I believe it will get even better with 8.3.

Changes since Battle for Dazar’alor:

Arms received a couple of small buffs. Firstly to single target spells and Deep Wounds, and then a flat buff to all Arms abilities. However, Arms is still not played often, mainly because of how strong Fury is, but if you have all of the right gear for Arms you can do great with this spec.
