- Expansion: WotLK Classic
Besides your gear and talents, there are 3 additional ways you as a player can increase your character’s power: gems, enchants, and consumables, which make your character significantly more powerful when combined correctly.
Many guilds and raid groups may not invite you at all if you don’t have the correct gems, enchants and consumables — but worry not, this guide will help you avoid that problem!

This will be the best option for this slot throughout the entire expansion!
As time passes and the expansion progresses into the later phases, you will want to start stacking as much Armor Penetration as possible, forgoing strength gems in favor of Armor Penetration Gems, namely Fractured Scarlet Ruby and Fractured Cardinal Ruby.
The best enchantment that you can acquire for this slot.
Alternatively, if you do not have enough gold to purchase the materials needed for it, you can opt-in for Enchant Chest – Super Stats
There are no better options when it comes to your bracer’s enchantment. However, if you find yourself lacking in expertise, you can use Enchant Bracers – Expertise.
Arms Warrior does not benefit from Haste like a Fury Warrior does, being less inclined to stack it overall. However, that does not mean that Hyperspeed Accelerators does not represent a very powerful enchantment that even Arms Warriors can benefit from. Hyperspeed Accelerators requires Engineering 400, granting you with a 12-second bonus of +10% Attack Speed which can be used consistently every minute.
The only possible and viable choice for your waist.
This is the best enchantment that you can gain for your legs, however, if you do not have enough gold you can choose Nerubian Leg Armor instead.
In case you chose Enchanting as one of your professions, you can benefit from one unique trait, allowing you to enchant your rings.
Like with your gems, you’ll want to use armor penetration food (Hearty Rhino), unless that would push you past the armor penetration cap (1400 rating), at which point you should then use Strength food (Dragonfin Filet) instead.
In a pinch, you can also use Hit Rating (Snapper Extreme) or Expertise (Rhinolicious Wormsteak) food to hit your hit and expertise caps, respectively. However, this is only a last resort — do not rely on them for your cap.
Indestructible Potion is hands down the best potion that you can acquire as an Arms Warrior due to the Armored to the Teeth. Not only that you will acquire +3500 Armor improving your overall survivability but you will also gain +97 Attack Power! You will only be able to use it once per fight so what you will want to do is an action commonly referred to as “Pre-pot” — consume one potion right before the fight starts in order to benefit from two potions in a single battle.
