Thanks for the other insights! I did notice Havoc use was a bit low, and perhaps Fire and Brimstone on Shamans? Or is RoF sufficient DPS for a warlock on the slimes?
But two thinks I would recommend, first, go to the class guides and learn your rotation and setup your UI to allow you to notice things. Second goto AskMrRobot and optimize you toon.
Since there were some clash between post times in the merged thread, I added the quote to which you are responding for clarity.
Hey was looking for some help with a couple warlocks in my raid, I'm focusing on them right now because I believe a lot of DPS is being left on the table by them and while they aren't the only ones by a long shot, I have to start somewhere. I've been working on them with the basics and have been broaching the idea of affliction to them as well for some fights.
I thought some experienced warlocks eyes might pick up some weak spots I missed when talking to them. I am a hunter and am by no means an expert on locks after all. Here are our most recent heroic logs and they are the only two warlocks in the raid, any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Nazgrim - Malk (some spoils wipes): http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/RDGbxYaCghnKVyzj
Well Aquitainus has really poor Immolate uptime and he is popping Dark Soul with absolutely zero buffs up almost every fight. Tell him to keep it lined up with Expanded Mind throughout the fight. He didn't use Havoc at all which on a fight like Shamans is pretty brutal.
Mydieval is suffering from the same thing. Worse Immo uptime, popping DS with zero buffs up. He also only used Havoc twice on Shamans which is extremely low. He could use it to sburn snipe adds on Shamans, on the dogs, chaos bolting adds, etc.
Hey guys, have a few questions. I know my gears probably a mess, could you help me out?
First off, here's my armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte.../Deivii/simple
Now, I have 2 piece of raid finder tier sitting in my bank. It's shoulders + robe. Should I swap out the flex shoulders + robe to get the 2pc?
I know my gear isn't great, I don't raid much plus I don't have anyone to raid with, so generally I get no critique anymore. Anything, negative or positive will be helpful.
Thanks in advanced!
Moved your post to our sticky for this topic - you're more likely to get an appropriate answer in here.

Missing Living Steel Belt Buckle
deal with it first, then Hit+16.37%, you should have only 15%, so reforge it. mastery>crit=haste. use ReforgeLite addon.
2pc is crap. but 4pc is awesome, even raidfinder, so your goal is to obtain 4pc. shoulders offset
Hello guys, I'm having some problems with my dps as affliction. I've trained for a week now with just coordinating when to put up dots and when to use haunt. Like I always just haunt on buffed dots and so on. However I'm having real struggle with getting any good dps. This week on Malkorok LFR i managed to pull 100k exactly, which is my highest dps as of now. But this worries me. My ilvl is about 520 and with other dps classes ive managed to do atleast 130k with that same ilvl.
Normaly on a boss fight with slight movement I manage to pull somewhere between 85k - 95k, which is way to low in my opinion.
Heres some info on that Malkorok fight:
My armory (might be in destro spec, but I use the same gear for both. My gear is tuned for affliction):
I know I'm missing the better intellect enchant on bracers aswell as Jade spirit, but that is mostly due to economy and the outdated weapon ilvl.
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: SimC are telling me 132k dps with my current gear.
EDIT2: Yes I use Affdots, and i refresh (without disrupting too much of haunt) the dots when the colour changes to blue/green or just as they are going to drop.

Hey fellow warlocks,
I just returned to WoW a few months ago and so I concentrated to enter raiding with the most viable raiding spec for beginners (quitted from Cataclysm till December 13). Therefore my whole raiding experience is as destro. Lately I have the feeling that I'm doing quite well on most fights and I tried to get past my early gameplay mistakes. Now that the most obvious ones are gone I kinda need external help to see further improvement. Feel free to analyse the following log from Immerseus to Dark Shamans Hc. Any help and/or tips would be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Hello fellow locks...
I m planning to play lock on the upcoming expansion and I started to do some pugs here and there...
my armory is : http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...adasz/advanced
combat logs from a recent pug: http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/R7cgbLkjhmFJnDYW
I m not yet familiar enough with the rotation and prios.. but I want to do more deeps ... I know that with my gear I can do that... I have a slight problem aligning my cds especially PBOI is too random...
Anyway I want to hear (read) some useful critics from the site's pros :P
Ty in advance.

My application to a raiding guild was rejected after they looked at my logs and said I was "consistently underperforming" but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
The log is a few weeks old and my gear has since improved but it's the most recent log I have.
I've been playing Warlock since BC and have always been high DPS relative to my raid group but apparently it's not good enough.
My application to a raiding guild was rejected because i was underperforming for the past two weeks in comparison to the guild's other locks even
considering gear difference. They don't know what i'm doing wrong and i have personally no clue why theres such a gap in my DPS.
I'm not that good to analyze logs so i thought some experienced warlocks might spots weak points.
I am not pushing out as much DPS as i think i could. Always find myself behind the tanks making these past weeks very frustrating and the cancellation of my apply was just the cherry on top so i hope you can help me so i can correct my play quickly and apply for another guild asap.
My plan was to get rid of my haste cap and reforge Haste to Crit this week with Simcraft scale factor see what would happen and talk to the guild's lock but unfortunately the cancellation cut that short

For the past few weeks I have noticed my DPS has been a little low. I have some thoughts as to why, but I would like a second opinion. I'm being out dpsed by an elemental shaman who is only 2 ilvl's higher than I am. Mage I can understand, but not a shaman. In some cases, even a tank, with his damn vengeance being so damn high. Anywho, I would love some input as to how I can increase my DPS so I can beat that damn shaman! As I said, I have some thouths. It could be because I'm not lining up my DM with my meta proc. And not CBing at the correct time. Please, and thank you!
Ok so I want to max my DPS out. Been trying different things but not much seems to be making a difference. At my I-lvl it seems to me that I should be doing a lot more than I am. Any help would be appreciated.
On fights like Spoils and Dark Shaman I tend to be too far from the tank for her logs to pick me up time to time. Specially Shaman as do the split strat with melee up the hill and ranged down below near the bank kiting the boss around. Looking for some constructive imput on what I can do to increase my DPS. I was heavy haste at one time but noticed a bit of an increase when I went heavy crit. Though this week for Galk i was thinking heavy haste would help out more there since i get to bang on the adds the entire time. Also I find I get side tracked these days with Immolate even though I have a timer for my dots. I need to work on keeping that uptime higher. Your thoughts?

Hi warlocks! I got little problem with dps.
Im doing about 160k dps to dummy(no buffs) My ilvl is 546 and i think its little too low. Opener is about 250k-300k if we use bloodlust in raid. Sometimes i can reach 180k at the end of fight. In protectors i can do easily +180k dps. But single fights i just cant. Guild mates said i can do much better than this.
And my opener is --> 1x inci, 1x immolate, 2x conflagrate, darksoul+racial,1x inci, 2x chaos bolt(trink procc) etc
