In this guide we will go through some general information about what you need to know about Arms Warriors in patch 5.3 including tips about talent builds, macros and more. First we will have a look at the talent spec that i am using at the moment.
Arms Warrior Talent Spec for 5.3
Level 15 Talent : Juggernaut : As you know, charge is very important in PvP so get Juggernaut to make the recast time 12 seconds. Warbringer is also a viable choice.
Level 30 Talent: Second Wind. This is the only viable option and will help you stay alive.
Level 45 Talent: Staggering Shout or Disrupting Shout
Level 60 Talent: Shockwave. Dragon Roar is also viable but generally i will go for Shockwave.
Level 75 Talent : Safeguard. Helps you get free when rooted. Mass Spell Reflection is also good for BGs.
Level 90 Talent : Avatar
