Got fast 10ilvl higher with new items in 5.2, currently in 507 ilvl, and along with the arms changes i wanted to test arms dps spec.
On dummie i do about 9-10 k more dps selfbuffed as arms. Tested it in one raid, doing council and tortos, and was pretty pleased with arms. My problem is that with current gear i have 2% more hit than needed and there is no way to lower it. This extra hit could be usefull as fury though. Still on paper I do more dps as arms than as fury , at least on single target.
For sure arms dps has way easier rotation and it seems to do if not more at least equal dps to fury.
Have you tested Arms dps recently and what do you think of it? you prefer it for both aoe and single target? how much crit you going for as arms? what talent do you prefer as aoe in arms spec?
