my problem is with my Warlock which is my main character
i always played as Destruction and i never had DPS problems untill patch 5.1 then my DPS was slightly decresed.
because of the low DPS i was kicked from 2 guilds already and in some guilds they simply didn't invite nor let me participate because my DPS was just not enough.
they told me to change to Affliction as everyone said it's the best spec for warlock
so i decided to try but my DPS isn't changed much.
i read full guides here and other websites and i'm sorted with stats, reforge, gems etc
here's my armory link
i don't know how to use the world of logs so i can't provide specific fights
but i will give as much information as i can so any help will be appriciated.
on aoe fight i usually don't have problem because of easy rotation
my problem comes on single targets
my average DPS goes between 50-60k, while comparing to other warlocks in the guild they do above 80k
my single target rotatios goes like this:
at the beginning curse of elements > dark soul > soulburn + soul swap > summon doomguard
at this point i usually start to get int proc from trinkets, lightweave, windsong etc
so i throw Haunt and spam melific grasp if i still have procs on when Haunt ends i renew it
and continue with melific grasp untill i have to refresh my dots
i keep using Haunt only when i get procs and when the target has below 20% health
i use drain soul while using soulburn+soul swap and Haunt when i get more soul shards from it
i think the main problem is that i don't know how to manage the refreshing dots as it should be.
i thought i should refresh them when i get int procs or haste boost from Essence of Terror for example
regardless how much time left for the dots to end, some guide suggested doing so explaning that the current dots don't get effect from int proc or haste untill they are refreshed
but on other guides i read they said i only need to refresh dots when they are about to expire so no tick will be wasted
i tried both ways and still there is no big change from my DPS resoulting been kicked..
i'm desprate for help
