Darn darn darn.... the one hour where I forget to switch to my raiding gear and you look at my profile! Ack! Please review again and look at my raiding gear. I do have BIS gear, although I could really use shoulders. Haven't won the rolls on those the last few raids, so I still don't have my 4 piece set bonus yet, but I am working on it. Healers get top priority so I've had to wait. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for the other comments about general DPS. I take no offense on your writing style. I understand you are not trying to be cruel, just informative, and I do appreciate it.

Baleroc has a lot of movement the way we do the fight. And lately they've had me tanking the shards. So I actually do run around a lot.
Gear looks mostly good, too much hit though, anything over 17% is wasted. I run with less than 16% and very rarely get a miss.
I'd upgrade your ring (Security Measure Alpha) with Soothing Brimstone Circle from the Valor vendor and your trinket (Theralion's Mirror) with Darkmoon Card: Volcano.
Take a look at the BiS list on here.
Edit: How do you do Baleroc? I'm confused as to why you need so much movement?
I have Darkmoon Card: Volcano. Was going for added +int with the two trinkets. But can certainly put card back. Have enough valor, can swap out ring. As for Baleroc, we divide into two groups, right and left of boss. Melee in front, ranged in back. Whole group runs right or left depending on where shard drops. Only the person tanking the shard stays put, but at 12 stacks of debuff, tanker moves to hand off to next tanker.

I dont have 4 set as of yet, we've seen 5 conq tokens drop since the start of firelands (2 legs, 2 chest, 1 shoulder).
Dont bother looking at beth as i heal that. Shannox i multi dot.
We also dont have access to a warlock, however we'll be picking up a mage next week (i probably wont get fm)
Im of the opinion my dps isn't where it should be, just want to confirm whether or not its decent (don't really have anyone to compare to)

Very high uptime on ES (92% ish) and I would say that that should make up for the 200ish dps you miss by not using MB off CD.
You don't get DI so I would say that your dps is pretty much what it should be, might be able to push another 1-2k from it with a extreamly nice usage of CDs and procs if you use NTK to track internal CDs etc but that's very hard to pull off
And I'm not entierly sure, but I actually think it's pretty safe for you to start hitting your 10+ int socket bonuses as you are so high on intellect!

Exactly. For some reason, raid officers felt this was a better strategy.So instead of one person moving to the shard you have the rest of the raid running from them? 1 person running > 24 people running.
It's like teaching a kid to swim with a personal floating device and supose that he/she always will be wearing one when close to water >.<
We actually use the everyone is spread to start with method Hoddie and it works really well for us. This however is partly due to the fact that the group I raid with is oddly adept at making on the fly adjustments and 95% the shards spawn in melee for us. I keep waiting for that week where they spawn all over and it just hasn't happened.
95% of shards spawn in melee on a 25-man raid? Well to be honest we do have a ranged heavy raid team so maybe that's why we go with the stacking tactic.
Item Level 378 equipped.
Expectations: I recently applied to a more hardcore and progression-based guild (something my last guild was lacking), and was asked to come in for a trial run this weekend, as there is also another shadow priest vying for the same spot. My dps doesn't suck, per se, but I was wondering if there was anything I should be doing differently/could be doing better (aside from gear upgrades from raid.. since I won't be able to raid before my trial run thing :P) to squeeze a couple thousand more out of my dps in order to be better prepared to nail this other shadow priest.
