Playing Arms, bottom 25% of dps. I need help, please. (Included armory, logs to help decipher the issue)By Darksong
Dear Fellow Warriors,
I've been playing arms for quite awhile now, and I've not been doing well in raids. On fights like the Dragons, routinely bottom tier of my group's dps.
On Ursoc though, I was 4th. However, my dps seems too far from what others are able to accomplish. (IE, I'm only doing 212k DPS on Ursoc - Normal)
On the Lesser Sparring Partner, i'm only doing about 150k dps. after two minutes-3 minutes of parsing
To help distill the issues with my rotation and take away most of the mechanics, let's use the gear check boss, Ursoc, since it's relatively immobile.
My Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmourne/Darksong/simple
Let's compare two logs. One's mine (ilvl 844 - 212k dps), with someone of similar iLvl (844 368k dps), on the same fight in Normal Ursoc:

Comparison Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/93kqYVwpQv1fA2ag#fight=19&type=damage-done&source=135
Ok, taking out the fact that I don't have a legion pot, and didnt use Pot of the Old War, I seem to be doing very little damage, my MS hits for a lot less, etc.
Taking a look at my damage during Heroic Dragons of Nightmare, is rather depressing. Here I finally managed to buy some flasks, but not to much effect it seems.
Let me explain my rotation:
2. Stack Focused Rage to 3 stacks
3. Battle Cry + Colossus Smash + Avatar,
(During Battle Cry)
Hit CS/MS when it pops up, else FR+Hamstring till 3 points, slam if FR already at 3.
(Once out of Battle Cry)
Continue building FR stacks, hit CS and MS when it comes up (even if FR less than 3)
(Once in Execute Range)
Colossus Smash->Execute ->CS->Exe when available.
PS: One question, since I've been focusing on maximising my mastery, my non-CS/shattered Defenses MS has been pathetic, maybe doing 200k damage with 3 FR stacks. Should i be maximising my CS duration (IE: do NOT hit CS again when there's still a few seconds left on the CS duration?)
Thanks in advance for ANY help at all.

Days avaliable for raiding:
Tues/Wed/Thurs (This is somewhat flexible, aside from mondays which I can't raid on.)
Time avaliable for raiding:
3pm to 6pm central time zone. (this isn't very flexible for me)
Willing to faction change?: No sorry I'm horde all the way.
Hardcore/Semi-hardcore/Casual?: I'm looking for Semi-Casual Progression.. I don't wanna wipe for hours on bosses because of people failing at mechanics, there needs to be willingness to remove the bad eggs from the raiding group. Even if it was me.(which it wont be)(9/10 times) :)
I've raided in most expansions to some degree. More indepth during tbc/wrath & mop. The other expansions I mostly PvPd.
Single target dps on bosses at the moment is around 180k give or take alittle. Bosses that involve pretty much any form of adds/aoe I'm easily 200k+
If you'd like to speak to me when I'm online add my battletag Phily#1579
I'm willing to server transfer if I find a guild raid group that matches the hours I'm looking for.
i want to raid with my mistweaver monk. Up till now i only did mythic+ and my playstyle was mistweaving as mentioned in the Icy-Veins guide.
As i was playing my healer , someone asked me how i can reserve all my mana if i face a boss in a raid but i couldn't give him an anwser and i was asking myself: " do I need to switch to fistweaving?". I don't like the thought of healing at the frontline , with blizzard cutting my visions since legion launch. So this introduction is leading to a specific question: Can i keep healing from behind? and if it is the case: how?
Please help me , i am really enjoying monk as a healer!
