I've been studying up on the forums here trying to not be terrible at my warrior. Being unsuccessful, I decided to start asking around warriors on my server. I've come to find that many people have same questions as myself but just don't wanna ask.
Now I realize that the banter on these forums is primarily for "seasoned" players, but for some of us who would like to become more adept maybe we could get a few basics cleared up.
A few of my basic questions:
1. I'm a clicker, left hand on the WSAD and right hand on mouse clicking icons. Do you have to be set up with macros to do well with dps?
2. I have taken quite a bit of time reading through these forums for rotations, gear set up, gems etc. I'm aware that my gear is very noob (all emblem stuff) and that being new I've only bought the blue lvl gems as gold is a concern at this point. I've always been arms, just changing to Fury yesterday and wow....my dps is terribad. Pulling 2-3k on bosses in heroics. Question is.....is arms better up to a certain gear point?
3. Last but not least, of the people I've talked to, none that use this site actually know how to use the WoWlogs I see you guys refer to. Honestly I'm still working on figuring out how to use Rawr, but there is enough info on here that I should be able to get that down without further explanation.
Thx for any help or explanations on any of these points. I don't mind getting flamed for "dumb" or "noob" questions, but plz add in a bit of helpful info when you're done.

Having a very quick look over your character, I do notice that you're far far over hit cap. You currently have 14.3% hit, while only requiring 8% as a fury warrior (5% from gear and the extra 3% from precision). And you're also some way off your exp cap.
I'd suggest moving away from being a clicker, it'll take time and practice, but you'll be rewarded for it.
The arms/fury discussion has been discussed very regularly, and there are people who sit on both sides of the fence. Quite simply it comes down to play style and your ability to master each. Also it should be noted what your usual grouping/raid party needs. As arms, Feral druids will love you to no ends for being a mangle-bot for them, and adding the extra blood frenzy buff for the raid is a very positive thing (if you have no combat rogues).
Wowlogs i can't really help you out on, as I haven't used it to its full extent. Although I have found it a very valuable resource for checking out some of the top dps fury/arms warriors out there, and checking out their damage breakdowns and comparing them to my own.
As for Attack Power, since Agility translates directly into AP on the char sheet, I thought using total AP would be a good way to take both into consideration. Crit level is a good point to bring up, however what I noticed happening with my own gear is that better gear makes agility better than straight attack power. When I was raiding Naxx at the beginning of Wrath, AP gems were a couple dps better than Agi gems, but now that I am raiding ICC 25, Agi gems are better.
Amen! Agility does translate better as the Hunter's gear improves. I have found this to be true as well.
hello everyone, ive been reading these boards forever, alot of good information here. i finally broke down and need expert advice. Ive simmed, rawred to my hearts content with what setup i should be running. Ive followed rawrs optimization, and tried to follow the crit cap rules but i feel my dps isnt up to what it should be. I do pull 8.5 or so on standing bosses, my raid setup might be the best for me though.
I guess my question is, how does my current setup look. Am i gemming right and do i have enough hit, or need more hit. Ive exhausted all my options. And yes i have simmed.
So i am an orc war and i gain 5 exp when using axe. My quesiton is that let say i use cryptmaker on my mh and dbb on my oh. my oh have 26 exp and my mh only have 21 due to the fact that cryptmaker is a mace. So how does rage generation work in this case? since rage come from oh so does that mean only oh need to be exp capped?
i am sorry if this has been asked before, i tried to find it but didnt see any
