If you have lag issues on this boss disabling recount or skada (and other addons that work with analyzing combat text) might help, in case that contributes to low dps on this one.
Well i was doing 26k last night on our guild first 25m kill
It's the timing of the twilights I'm sure. Can really throw you off. I just try to make sure nothing will fall off while I'm out of the twilight, think I was sixth When we downed him tonight so I'm not gonna complain too much.
Never play leapfrog with a unicorn.
Not meant as badmouthing, mind you, just that you can probably improve your rotation somehow.

@op: personally, i got to about 31k dps (http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/r...=10725&e=11044, player: snurp), while taking every other boss ae with dispersion (glyphed) and channeling both divine hymn and hymn of hope. maybe you should try to time yout dots a little bit better (make sure they don't fall of while you are dispersing/ going into the shadowrealm).
as lupaca said, deactivating your recount (if you use one) can work wonders with the fps, especially during the last 25% with bloodlust. skada shouldn't be this problematic though, but recount has performance issues for a few days nearly every patch.
You don't need stopcasting in that macro, the button does that for you anyway.
I dont know if it's that bad. I did 33k dps with DI yesterday, and that's with 388 ilvl (no legendary) and dispersion glyph. Keep dots up, mind blast properly, manage your cooldowns, procs and pot and you should be doing competetive dps.

Yes, since I got new shoulders yesterday from 359 > 397 I lost really much hit, and my RNG with the dots was really bad but fixed that hit problem now and should be better next week.
Personally, as a warlock I try to perfect my DoT uptime, which I guess Shadowpriests do as well. Then if you actually miss a spell, you either need addons to notice it INSTANTLY, or you'll basically lose some precious seconds of DoT uptime. That is why I hitcap, and recommend anyone else to do so as well.
Yeah same issue, i usually do 30k dps on baleroc (no Lock, no Legendary, no 4pc12 @ 381 ilevel) and i barely hit 22K on that fight.
My dots never falls off.
High resistance against our damage source?
On the topic of Ultraxion, one issue that can really hurt your dps is if you get the Fading Light debuff a lot that can REALLY cut into your dps time (reminds be of the damn magic debuff on Sindragosa). You can mitigate it some by making sure all your dots won't fall off, and try to squeeze out another MB/MF cast before you hit Heroic Will... though any time where you aren't doing something will take away from the amount of dps you can do.
this happened to me also, my dps on baleroc was about 25k+ and on ultraxion i barely get to the 22k point -__-
Combat logs are going to be a mess for Ultraxion.
Anytime you go down your personal log will show you lower than you actually are.
Anytime your logging person goes down; everyone else will show lower on the logs than they actually are.
I was wondering the same thing, I have downed him on my Shadow Priest and am on him on my Affliction Lock right now. There is a dps loss on this fight but I am unsure if it is due to maybe he takes less shadow damage, his damage causing casting push back or just the simple fact that Dot Classes seem to suck on this fight. Both of my toons are roughly 380 and everything is chanted and jeweled correctly. I use dot timer and have been a dot class for a long time so I know how to keep them up. I just do not know what is going on, whether it is just recount is f'd on this fight or what the issue is. It showed me doing anywhere from 20k - 24k. I can do 20k on a training dummy. WTF LoL
It is just poor programming if they check spell cast instead of spell success or something similar.

I pull between 24 and 27k on that fight, would be higher if not for the frequent pauses. Just learn to line up you CDs properly and it's not that big an issue.
