Its pretty hard to buff the PVE DPS of Arms right now because of the 50% mortal strike. 50% MS is pretty ridiculous in general right now, with how much damage people can put out in PVP. Imagine if Arms could put out the kind of damage that Fury puts out, and have that 50% mortal strike (along with the mobility and survivability of Arms compared to Fury)!With the change to MS, I think things are looking bright for Arms. I disagree with you Rossi, in that Arms feels like a "soldierly" spec. It feels like whackamole. Hit the button that lights up first. Yeah there's a priority system. Still feels like whackamole to me. I think that comes from the buttons not feeling like they're very different. Overpower? That's a button that lights up after rend is up. Execute? Another button that sometimes lights up. Slam? A button you hit when none of your other buttons light up. MS? A button you hit when it is off cooldown. And keep Rend up.Then there's slam casting. Thank god it will be castable while moving in Cataclysm.I don't know, maybe its me. I don't really like the way warriors DPS, but I like how they tank. I'd like to have a DPS spec on my warrior, so I'm holding out for Arms in Cataclysm. I'd like to feel more like a Blademaster and less like a whackamole in PVE. In PVP - I have the Needle Encrusted Scorpion, and the Axe from 10 man Heroic Saurfang, and some 251 gear. Still feel pretty squishy.
