The highest dps a warrior can achieve right now, but should only be played if you are the second warrior.

Increases the warrior's personal dps by an incredible amount, especially with the odd buffs to berserker traits. If it is wanted to have discipline then it is more than viable to swap out arms for discipline, Berserker is definitely NOT an option to drop.

This build is good as it hits the maximum DPS I agree with that, but losing discipline it means you lost your best abilities as a warrior, Since discipline skills in my opinion are 100% useful. (50% faster weapon swap/25% move speed/gain more adrenaline/quickness 4sec every 15sec)
