Hmm. With a bunch of other alts already rolling, I've been hesitant to roll a warrior; I can't even decide between Arms or Fury to start. I'll have to read through this again later and give it some more thought. Thank you for the excellent analysis.

I'll make a pitch for Arms! :)Arms is a very conditional spec. Where many times a spec is like "234 234 234, oh this happened so press 5, now 234 234 234, etc.," Arms is a much more active spec. It's a lot of "Okay, so I want to do x, so press y... ah so z happened so press w, now press x again because r happened, and so on." It's not terribly complicated, but it requires a lot of awareness of what procs are popping, forcing situations to line up to your advantage, and reacting to what's going on in the fight. It's a very tactical style of playing.It does have downsides, of course. There's plenty times where it's frustrating because some RNG didn't proc. And on an off day, there's a lot of "Great I'm dead... oh dammit I should have pressed this instead of that. gah!" Still, none of the downsides really matter if you love the play-style. I've played a LOT of different classes and specs and none are as active as Arms. It really gives the feeling of being in a real fight and using everything to your advantage to win. So do you like to play Parchisee? Or do you prefer Chess? :)

I'm currently leveling up my 2nd warrior at the moment as Arms/Protection (for instancing) and my other max level warrior is Protection/Fury.I can't believe how much I'm enjoying Arms. You have mobility, flexibility, an interesting rotation (not to mention fantastic DPS).I know it was touched on here, but as soon as you get Juggernaut - your game totally changes (in both PVE and PVP). It has made questing much faster!
