Hello I just dinged 85 on my warrior! I have always wanted a warrior but know that im level 85 I can't seem to do more then 10k. I don't know if warriors are gear dependent or what but if someone could help me out I would appreciate it:)

Oh my....

Well buy full Vicious pvp set from the auction house and bump up your ilvl, do some Hour of Twilight 5mans. Serious work needs to be done on your toon >.< Also Undead :(

Your spec looks good.

Pick up Blacksmithing & Leatherworking/JC
Use Cleaving Major Glyph instead of Long Charge unless it's for a specific boss fight.
Enduring Victory instead of Commanding for Minor glyph.

Enchants to use:
Dragonmaw Helm Enchant
Therazane Shoulder Enchant
Greater Critical Strike to Cloak
Peerless Stats to Chest
Major Strength to Bracers
Mighty Strength to Gloves
Ebonsteel Belt Buckle to Belt
Dragonscale Leg Armor to Legs
+50 Mastery to Boots (or Lavawalker, which isn't needed in DS)
Landslide to weapons.

Meta Gem - Reverberating Shadowspirit Diamond
Red Gems - Bold Inferno Ruby/Queen's Garnet
Blue Gems - Etched Demonseye/Shadow w.e
Yellow Gems - Inscribed Ember Topaz/Lava Coral

Only go for socket bonuses when its +STR socket bonus.

Stat Priority:
STR > Hit 8% > Exp 781 Rating (26 Expertise) > Crit > Mastery >> Haste

When you get some decent gear use and make sure to set the Hit Cap to exactly 961 and Expertise Cap to exactly 781, if it's not possible in current gear set to "closest".

I'll give ya a simple rotation for now,
Rend at the start of the fight/new target
MS -> Filler -> Filler -> MS

Filler Priority:
CS > OP (If between 6seconds-3seconds left remaining on Taste for Blood) > Slam > Battle Shout

Battle Shout's priority changes depending on rage level and if there is a CS window coming up soon or not. Always use Mortal Strike on CD, and fit 2 globals in-between using that Filler Priority list.

For AoE, replace Slam with Thunderclap. Bladestorm after an MS and if Rend is already spread with TC. A good example I use is: Adds come up on Yor'sahj I have rend up on boss, MS - Thunderclap+Sweeping Strikes+Recklessness+Heroic Leap - Bladestorm - Thunderclap - WW (if 4+ adds are still up)+Cleave - MS.

Opening rotation for a fight like Ultraxion where you can pop your CD's at the start without saving it for a later point:
Charge -> MS -> Rend -> CS -> MS+Deadly Calm (You should of burned all your rage with Heroic Strike before this point) -> OP -> Slam -> MS+Reck (Hope for T13 4pc Proc or Sudden Death)

No point in trying to stance dance right now, just do the rotation in Battle Stance.
