Guild is wanting me to get my dps up.  I've been looking everywhere for something I'm doing wrong but cant seem to find it.  Any ideas?  Below are the logs from an LFR fight from today and armory page.

How much more are they really expecting out of you at that iL? Everything looks good, excepting you missed 4 EDS procs on that Gruul fight. Would recommend Bleeding Hollow on your weapon instead of Shattered Hand, though.

Great! To be honest this was a good fight for me. I think they would be good with these numers. For some reason when I run with thy guild in heroicI get a little nervous and don't pull these numbers. I just wanted to make sure it was raid awareness and not a rotation problem. Now I know what to work on. One question. Do you cast EDS as soon as it process or wait to throw FV first then EDS?

Thanks for the advice on the enchant. Ive been wondering about that.

You always want to try and FV before EDS for the buff, and this may occasionally overwrite an existing EDS proc with a new one - which can account for discrepancies between instances of the EDS proc and actual DS casts. Though, since it's rare to have an EDS proc without already having the FV buff (i.e., your previous FV was the one that procced EDS), consuming the proc before FV at 5HoPo is what I usually do.

So, I never do this, while i understand why you would, basically in a single target scenario I never use divine storm on a unless you have both Empowered divine storm and the final verdict buff active. Now i'm going to admit I don't know how exactly the math works here so correct me if i'm wrong, but lets say you're sitting at 5HoPo, you can either

 

Divine storm -> Final Verdict, which means you have a 50% damage buff to Divine storm, and this way you're less likely to proc a new divine storm without using the old one

 

OR

 

Final verdict -> Divine Storm, which means your divine storm is going to hit for 150% damage, but you have a 25% chance to double up on your divine storm procs. 

 

I guess it's up to you here, but I like to play on the side of guaranteed damage, and not bet on a 25% proc to occur. using the second method, you will miss a few procs over time (which is unfortunate). This is sort of similar reasoning as to why divine purpose isn't really raid viable. sure, you could get 12 procs in a row and your DPS would be sky high, but you could also not get any ever and have it be awful :>

Actually, with 4pT17, DP becomes the superior talent choice at the L75 tier. Access to HoW outside execute/Wings with 2pT17 devalues SW, since procs during Wings are, essentially, wasted; and the extra HoPo from casting Exo with 4pT17 devalues HA. And all the extra HoPo from both sets bonuses means more finishers for more chances to proc DP/EDS.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
