I need some help with my low dps please. My level 90 elemental shammy is doing about 70-90k less dps than I believe he should be doing for an example. His current gear score is 540. I'm wondering how much of the problem has to do with the fact that I never learned how to type back in the day. I point & click because I can't dance my fingers across the keyboard w\out looking at it like most of my friends do. I know the priorities & rotations he should be doing from Icy Veins & Noxxic but still my overall DPS is substantially below others on recount. For example I ran LFR TOT wing 3 just now. On Primordius the top 6 on recount were all over 200k while mine showed as 102k. Since I can't type I cluster my icons together at the front of the action bars so I'm not having to move the mouse much to cast spells & I move using the arrow keys(which I don't have to look down at). Now I KNOW that my DPS will be lower than most others by doing it this way but I don't think I should be half or more less than the top 10 each recount. I can't help feeling that I'm missing something major here. I'm guessing that my DPS is suffering each time I have to pause casting LB or lava burst to reapply flame shock or drop totems again(& yes I'm using ascendance & such when they're up) but I don't think it should be that much of a loss. Against a boss in LFR should I say not bother quickly pausing casting lightning bolt or lava burst to drop an earthquake under boss for added DPS(not sure if not casting every DPS spell I have is in the case of earthquake here hurting my main dps spell casting)?
Several of my friends have 10 & 25 man raids each week but I don't ask to or get invited to go along with my DPS not being anywhere near what it should be based on my current gear. It makes it VERY frustrating knowing I'll never have even a chance at getting one of the Garrosh heirloom weapons since they don't have a chance of dropping in the LFR version of SoO (THANKS BLIZZ LOL, but that's another can of worms. Any help is APPRICIATED.
