What is your experience?
My dad is putting out 18k DPS sustained as a Ret and 20k+ as on burst and keeps getting kicked for "sub-optimal DPS." This was on heroic, with 651 gear.
Either most heroic raid leaders' idea of "optimal DPS" is 20k+ sustained or otherwise melee aren't doing too well I suppose.
I am 651 RET. I can pull 25-28k on butcher and burst over 50k.. your dad is doing something really wrong, send me a tell and I can give him some tips if he wants.

While there is a "hump" to get over, 20k sustained is pretty pedestrian once you've figured out the appropriate methodology to your spec. If you have LFR gear, you should always be above 20k.
Yeah, I mention id give tips and instead of thanking me you call me a liar. Tell your dad to enjoy getting kicked, id kick any RET under 22k sustained at 650+
I literally spam one button and use wings whenever appropriate and pull as much as your dad with 638 ilevel.
Granted, 1 button macros do 95% of simmed DPS for ret, he should be doing more.
Can someone tell me how come I am not able to pull over 20k?
I am trying my best but my max is 17-18k and slowly dropping down to 15-16k when I am under pressure and need to heal or move away.
Crit and haste are your 2 worst stats. Yet the first 2 pieces I looked at of yours have -just- crit and haste.
In fact, now that I look at the rest of your gear, you really -really- need to get into heroics and better optimize your stats.
EDIT - Just as a bonus, I'd also suggest looking at the overall Icy-Veins guide - http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/frost-d...-pve-dps-guide
There are a lot of problems but it seems like you may be new to the game, reading up a little bit on those who theorycrafted will do you heaps of good.
P.S. - Why the bonus armor ring? O_O

You have to do a little bit of work to get it going, but I use it when I play Ret and it works wonders, I just spam 1 button and pull 95% of simmed DPS. Not sure about using it on Frost DKs.
You used to be able to /castsequence but Blizz broke that.
By the way is it true that Frost and Blood dots deal more damage than Necrotic Plague?
Edit: The good news is that I forgot to replace my weapon (had 660 conquest) and chest (same). God I am such a noob.
