Below I have my armory and several logs. I feel like my fire is defanitly lacking and I'm not entriely sure what I am doing wrong. I also have attached a log of my arcane becasue I feel like it is underperforming compared to other mages close to my gear and I must be doing something wrong.

One thing I should have added. I'm really having a hard time deciding when I should use combustion. Is it better to sit on the ability while its off CD even though my ignite tick is only 6k or should I use it because its beter than losing the DPS all together?

 

In arcane I just realized I wasnt implemnting a burn phase consistently and this was gimping my dps as tad. When going into the burn phase with arcane power and crystal should I just spam blast until 50% or should I mix in missles as well? Do I use missles as they come up during the burn phase or wait until I get back into concerve?

I'm running fire and arcane as well, didn't look at your logs or armory yet, however I felt the need to throw this out there. During your burn phase your single-target priority rotation shouldn't change much aside from using AB without restriction, you should still be casting Arcane missiles and supernova if it's up. This is doubly true if you have the "Overpowered" Talent as Arcane missiles then extends the duration of your arcane power buff by 2 seconds. Hope this helps! Happy Casting.

I'm on my phone so logs are rough to view, but you didn't use your first evocation until 1:20 on gruul, which means you didn't burn on the pull or you spent a minute oom. Also roll prismatic crystal on no movement fights; PM is the scales the hardest with gear, so it's good to get accustomed to using it before you get too far into mythic. I'll look more at your fire logs throughout the day.

I just realized the date posted on this thread, but if the OP is still having issues I'd love to help.

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
