Warr and armor pen?
Return to board index
So, at the moment, as a arms warrior I am gemming for Strength. I am wondering if I should get for armor pen instead? questions are :
1. Is armor pen good for PvE?
2. Is armor pen better then str for PvP?
My other questions is, I am 8% hit, that is cap, I think. How much expertise should I get? I do have the 2% less dodge talent in arms tree.
for arms, armor pen > strength in pvp and pve.
8% hit, 6.5% exp.
I've been trying to avoid arp until I get grim toll, but I've already started to switch to arp, eventhough I have a slim chance of getting grim toll(I'm hardly playing anymore. 1-2 nights a week and usually not a full evening because everyone I know is always in raid.....).
due to the nature of armor penetration (the more you have the better it is) and arms having the most talented armor penetration of any class/spec, armor penetration is a very attractive stat to have
10% from battle stance
15% from mace specialization
6% from 2xT9
a max of 31% armor penetration from talents and the set bonus along, 69% (~967 rating to hard cap)
due to the reason mentioned above and arms just doesn't have the strength modifier fury does to make strength as attractive
~14.01 rating = 1% ArP
is worth about 43% when it procs, 26% (~364 rating) from gear for soft cap
is worth about 47% when it procs, 22% (~308 rating) from gear for soft cap
8% hit, 6.5% exp.
No - as arms with
, you need 4.5% expertise (18 expertise skill) as displayed on your character screen. 3.5% of this has to come from gear/gems/enchants, which means you need a total of about 111 expertise rating.
Ok. Armor pen > str for arms warr. and I need 111 expertise for cap, alright. My other questios are:
1. I got ironsoul this week and upgraded to it, but havn't changed my sepc to mace spec yet. Should I do that? or wait for edge of ruin from H.ToC 5 man and stay axe spec? what one is better since both weps have basically the same dps/armor pen/crit just trading some stam for str.
2. My armor pen is 447 31% or so, all the ToC armor has armor pen, should I still stack more? My crit is only 24%, should I work on that?
Thanks guys for getting back to me, armor pen and arms warrior is really fun to play and stack, I see my dmg on execute/OP/MS sky rocket when I pop Incisor fragment (A trinket that gives 291 armor pen rating). I would go for the ones you mentioned above but I can hardly do 25's, unless a pug and I never find naxx 25 pugs. I am going for victory banner and the 25 badge trinket.
How do you link items like you did above?
the way armor pen works the more you have the better it is and it stays that way till you reach 100%
basically if you can get more without exceeding the cap then you should get more (hover over melee hit in the character sheet to view armor pen)
