As I rerolled Warlock 2 weeks ago, I still feel like I'm doing way to low DPS according to my gear.
Here's my armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...wemul/advanced
Here's my WoL: http://www.worldoflogs.com/guilds/23...alendar/11-12/
(Everything above 28th of November the logs before that are already "covered" and I did some changes)
On Feng I did die, so I lose some DPS there.
I hope this is enough information. If you want my UI, tell me and I'll make screenshot.
(Soz can't post normal links )
Also I had a question about AskMrRobot, it says that I should use Windsong enchant

You seem to be over hit cap, I think. YOu have 1% expertise from using a sword + 15% hit, so you should be able to reforge out of a bit of hit. For casters you can use expertise or hit as long as the total is 15% you're good. Just check you stats in game to make sure you are over the cap, like I think you are.
IF you have the gold to spare AND you are certain to not get a normal mode weapon for a while I'd invest in a Jade Spirit enchant for your weapon. If you DO have gold troubles and/or think you'll get a normal mode weapon soonish then I'd just chuck Windsong on it. Windsong is still a very good enchant, especially considering the low price.
Had a brief look at your logs, I think you seem to be doing pretty damn well for a 2 week reroller, but I did notice a few times where your Corruption uptime seemed weak, or at least the lowest of the 3 dots. Corruption is too important too slouch on, it's what generates your Soul Shards and you should take care to get as much uptime as you can for it. And with a future where your 2 piece tier set buffs Corruption with 10% you need to start getting good up times even more.
That's all I had time for, good luck
You'd most likely watched my armory when I messed up my reforges on wowreforges lol. I forgot I had the sword so I could use lower rating (I was at 16.01% due to that). I had to log out to see how I should reforge :P
I did change it now.
And I already have Jade Spirit enchant, but AskMrRobot tells me (when I do the optimization) to use Windsong.
But I just checked and they removed it now lol. (It was yesterday and the question was stuck in my head for the past 20hours lol ;D)
10m Normal modes, 6hrs a week. hardcore about being casual!
I switched to ranged this expansion, I've been tanking since Firelands. So keep in mind that I'm not 100% comfortable in my role just yet but I'm getting there. I need help identifying the last few things so I can keep improving.
Addons are ELVUI, Button timers (for dots), Big Wigs, etc.
Often I refresh the dots on my second target with Soulburn. I feel its me being lazy and that it may be a dps loss. I see the dots on all the enemy targets so I bet if I focused a bit more I could reapply them individually to get more haunts/save shards. Anyone find better results with SB SS vs reapplying the dots individually?
Curious about how you guys take down the skulls. What rotation/spells are you using on it. I tend to stay on the boss if I see that the majority of our group are on the skull. We run a heavy ranged group so they go down fast.
I'm losing focus on my shard count when entering phase 2, the first couple runs of the night I started phase 2 with 1 or less shards. In Ph1 I stay on the boss, we have two of us stay on the boss to make sure we hit 85% before a third Protector comes out. I know this is something that I'll probably make sure to pay attetion to in the future. You guys use a shard addon?
Will the easyemperor
Every time the two smaller adds die I apply 3 targets with SB SS. Aiming for SB SS the two boss's every time if I'm in range.
-Teleports wand warp gate.
You guys have any practical use's for these. I have a couple, the water boss in terrace, use the teleport to get to the center when the boss's pushes us to the edge. Elegon, I try to keep one near the edge of my orb/pillar. Just in case I fall, which I haven't.
-I'm Affliction, any fights you recommend going Destro? I like Aff getter in raid, seems like Im managing a system over just doing a rotation. But I'd switch if it would make fights easier. I PvP as Destro, I'd probably prefer Demo right now but that doesn’t seem like an option for me atm.
-Any tips for HOF?
We're 1/6 and hoping to get 2/6+ this Sunday. First fight seems prettystraight forward. Blade lord should have been a kill for us but people fail at tornadoes. Anyone using a port.
Any recommendations on any fight would be appreciated. You can see what I use in my armory, I usually leave them the way they are.
Thanks for any tips guys! Feel free to comment
Should be going for a haste breakpoint for one, at this moment you're sitting at 3006 and should possibly be going for 4717 if not 4198 depending on which one doesn't sacrifice cutting too much mastery.
I'm also in a causal raiding guild(I use to play a dps DK in cata, also new to range myself..weird adjustment :P), 3 nights a week. 6 hours for progression, 3 for farming, sometimes the extra 3 are put for progression i.e. we are currently on shek'zeer so we're using it to put more time into it. I raid affliction on every fight but wind lord and amber-shaper which I raid demo on and AoE whore, just my preference since I will always switch to demo on any fight with slight aoe, I just dread affliction aoe so much. Anyways, onto your questions.
These are the fights and reasons of where I use the demonic gateway:
Zor'lok | To get from the left or right platform, I use my portal on the third.
Feng | So the melee can get into the bubble, that is casted on the range because we have 2 lifegrips.
Four Kings| Not very often, sometimes I'll remember to throw it down since it helps sometimes.
Elegon | To help get back to the control panel faster.
Will | To help with kiting away the rages.
If you're good as destro, then play destro. Simple as that, in terms of where it performs best is fights where you can use and abuse mannoroth's fury, i.e. amber-shaper, elegon, etc.
I recommend taking KJC as affliction for both Blade lord and garalon progression, trust me...it will make a night and day difference in your DPS when progressing.
Not many needed glyphs other then soul shards which you already have, that and maybe the demonic gateway one if you don't want to have to click it.

So, I finally got tired of fighting with guildies about my dps. As far as I am aware, I am doing things correctly - refreshing dots w/ pandemic when they get higher power; haunt with int procs/4 shards; etc. But the response I get from them is always "other warlocks... other warlocks... other warlocks..."
I know on a personal level that I am weak on fights with lots of adds or movement, and that I just need to improve my own skill level there. I've run simcraft on my character, both patchwerk w/ raid buffs and target dummy w/o raid buffs, and my results in-game came out close to the results of simcraft. I also just downloaded the AffDots addon, and I expect that to help close the gap between my results even more.
Basically, my question is this: Are my guildies correct and I am still just missing something?
I've changed up my reforges slightly since original posting.
Stats to go with the log :

I've also been wondering, how much of a difference would a new weapon make? Been stuck with this same 463 since week 1.
