    If you're looking for help with regards to your damage in raids, we kind of need to see logs to see what you're doing wrong.

    With respect to add-ons, I use WeakAuras for all the things you need to track (NG, DoTs, Trink Procs, CDs and so on).

    EDIT: I just had a glance over your armory. You're gemming full int and even haste some times? For Boomkins at the moment, 2 Crit is better than 1 Int therefore you're wanting to be gemming the following: Yellow - Crit, Red - Int Crit, Blue - Spirit Crit.

    Also, replacing Herbalism with Engineering or something of the likes would provide a DPS increase.

    Gatherer profession are subpar as far as dps is concerned, any crafting profession will be better (and engineering is the best of all if used right)

    herbalism, like any other subpar profession isn't the main cause of low dps.
    Lifeblood is decent when used in line with CDs.

    You need to set them up, there's a lot of info in the forums if you search for it. It's not something that's set up out of the box.
