Weapon Skills are on their way out in Cataclysm, but they are still attached to two achievements – Did Somebody Order a Knuckle Sandwich and Master of Arms. It’s likely they these achievements will be turned into Feats of Strength come the expansion, and you will no longer be able to get them. So now is the time to finish up these two easy, but long, achievements!
Here are some tips to help you get through these achievements more quickly:
- Find a low-level mob that can heal itself to attack. Some suggestions are: Sandfury Witch Doctor, Blood Elf Reclaimer. Their heals will sustain them so you can keep beating on the same mob for a long period of time.
- If you’re fighting a low enough level mob, and/or can heal yourself, I’d suggest removing all your armor first. You will take a decent amount of durability damage, plus having lower stats will prevent the mob you’re attacking from dying.
- There are vendors in Dalaran that sell each type of weapon. If you want to level up a type that you don’t normally use, you can pick up one of these for cheap.
However, if you can easily heal yourself there is a much faster way. I stumbled across this Youtube video that demonstrates one of the easiest ways of leveling up weapon skills. Note that Blizzard likes to nerf methods like this, so it may not last.
