Most important stats for DPS warrior?
Return to board index
I'm Lv.50 warrior going arms spec so i would like to know whats the most important stats from best to worst.
Also would like some idea's on a good arms/fury spec.
As far as I can remember, Strength is the stat you should be going for, "damage", as I believe it's 1 str = 2 attack power for warrior classes.. If I'm wrong, I'll need to check back to see what I'm thinking xD Agility could be good too, if you like to crit a lot. Stamina is fun as well, as it'll make it a little harder for you to get killed.. I wouldn't really be able to tell you about the arms or fury spec, since I've been protection pretty much from day 1. =/ Sorry. After typing this out, I've realized how little I can help you with my knowledge. But ya never know.
For a warrior, Strength does boost damage, Agility boosts chance to crit. Its a tough call on this one, strength will help your overall damage but the agility will allow more crits more often. I wrestle with this every time I look for new armor & weapons.
Also, my character is allergic to items that have +Spirit +Int. I give them to others (like my pally) before I become infected.
Actually.. Str does boost dmg for a warrior it increase attacker power which in turn increases dps.
Nowadays...i almost exclusively go for stam/str over agility. In pvp, with all the resilience floating around white dmg & solid consistent dps is key to victory.
Even being mace specc'd and aiming for stam/str i still have about 25% crit in zerker which is good for the gear i have. Its all opinion based, but thats my 2 cents for ya.
It just seems when your fighting someone with 400 resil, your crit will easily be mitigated, while at least your white dmg will be more consistant.
Stats for what i want go:
3.Anything with +Atk Pwr (savagery enc is great)
5. Crit rating gear
thats about it. crit gear is nice, but obviously if you can get the equal amount from agil ill take the extra armor as a bonus!
For dw fury warrior, 1. Str/AP 2. Agility/CR 3. Stamina. DW is aimed for PVE: less threat = less aggro = less health needed, but maximize on DPS by stacking Agility and Strength. For PVE you'll generally prefer stats with Str and Ag over AP and CR; attributes can get buffed by mark of the wild/blessing of kings not AP and CR.
For PVP Arms, 1. Stam 2. Str/AP 3. Agility/CR
As a fury warrior for PvE your need hit, 200 at 70 is good enough for dw. Then strength/ap and agility/crit are next most important stats, some stam is always nice too. Focus on getting your hit to 200 and then get as much strength and crit as you can. simple. Strength is better than AP too as warriors get 2ap for each point of strength and it stacks with kings (agi for crit also) hope this helps and correct me if im wrong about anything
You get more crit % by stacking crit rating than you do agi. However when you get Kings buff, this could even out the difference.
For Fury, go hit until approx 200. Then Str -> Crit Rating -> Stam. Do not gem for +hit or ap or agi. If you need crit, gem for crit rating. If you need more attack power, gem for +str (unless you have a heroic gem for +10ap/5crit or whatever). If you need more hit, swap some gear for +hit gear.
imo as arms crit and stre is both rly important. try to balance them.
arms, str mostly. Crit is good, but it doesn't need to be concentrated on unless you have flurry in the fury tree.
I say stack str, get about 5% +hit(don't know what hit rating that takes at 50), then some crit. Stam doesn't matter that much while leveling unless you are undead for cannibalize then it would help some staying up longer.
Fury, same except you will need more crit to keep flurry up more often so you can keep the 25% bonus damage.
There's a couple things to note about which stats to get & it's very simple compared to many of the posts above (scattered around).
For Arms/MS builds, you want to stack Strength for attack power & Agility for crit rating.
For Fury dual wielding, you want to stack hit rating, attack power (Strength scales greatly in this respect), & agility for crit rating (it's important to keep Flurry active as much as possible).
For PVP, of course you want to put Stamina & Resilience above everything else. You will get plenty of crit rating from the PVP gear, don't worry about it.
For PVE, you'll find Stamina is a sacrifice for higher damage & utility...but you should always carry a set of tanking gear, etc. Your main focus will be dealing damage if you're not tanking & you need to stack your hit rating (for either spec), but especially so for dual-wielding.
