Ahoy hoy~!
I'm a co-raid lead and an officer over in my guild and we have a few of our dps lagging behind everyone else, I am hoping someone can look over the logs and tell me what the Amethystias is missing in her rotation.
Also, is it still worthwhile to be Destro or is it Demo all the way?

Hey DemondNight, I'm fairly new as a lock and was actually thinking about posting one of these using my own data to see if anyone could spot areas for improvement. I took a look and from what I can see Amethystias is missing a few easy things to boost DPS a bit. 

 

  • No potions used, should be pre-potting 1-3 sec before pull and then potting again during hero phase
  • Doesn't look like enough uses of Dark Soul to me. I always use it right away in my opener so I have the chance to use more in the fight.  She only used twice and she has the glyph (at last as of right now) to cut the cooldown in half on it, should have been able to use it at least 2x more in this fight.
  • Talent: For Kargath I would use Archimond's Darkness instead of KC since there is little movement. This would give an extra Dark Soul use.
  • I was going to say something about her using SoulBurn instead of more Chaos Bolts near the end of the fight but in researching it SB is the preferred spell. I'd maybe try getting more of those in and using Dark Soul to up the crit chance on those, they hit harder than CBs when they crit. 
  • Talent: Not DPS related but more around survivability, I prefer Sacrificial Pact over Soul Link, gives a nice shield when needed.

I'll go on a bit harder than @Secretsauce. His points are absolutely right, though I got something to tell.

Dark Soul usage makes absolutely no sense. Not only he is messing his burn phases, but he simply doesn't use DS enough, overcapping the CD and losing his best damage cooldown to nothing.

Having no grasp on this simple basic gameplay feature, I'm in no surprise about Havoc and Shadowburn usages.
Twins fight - he used z-e-r-o Havoc on fight with 2 targets being absolutely constant. Absolutely the same story for Tectus. Bunch of targets = zero Havoc.
Brackenspore fight also logged as having zero Havoc and only one Shadowburn - it a fight with ridiculous possibilities of capitalising on those spells.

Talent choice frorm armoury has recorded Glyph of Havoc, which makes little sense in Highmaul, and Dark Soul glyph, which is debatably weak for Destro. I'd recommend getting rid of those two.

In addition to the points raised by Secretsauce and Paracel above, I'd also like to add the following:

 

Immolate uptimes should be 95% or better. Here were the Immolate uptimes for Amethystias:

Kargath Bladefist: 69.22%
Butcher: 81.89%
Brackenspore: 43.94%
Tectus: 41.37%
Twins: 34.18%
Ko'ragh: 52.66%
 
If she's not tracking her immolate properly, she should definitely get a Weakaura to help track that. See the Weakauras thread which is stickied in the Warlock forum.

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
       
      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.

      Recruitment Officer:
      In game - Treylawny
      Battletag - Treylawny#1813

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
