So my guild is 8/13 mythic right now and we're starting to hit dps checks. I'm reasonably good at staying near the tops of the meters, but looking at my rankings and such I know there is SO much more that I can do, and I'm not 100% sure where I'm going wrong. I've been toying around with stats and my crit vs mastery gemming and enchanting, and I noticed a HUGE spike when I swapped to pure crit at ilvl 731, but as I got more gear that wasn't itemized as well my dps stayed the same, and I swapped to pure mastery. Now I'm running with my enchants crit and my gems mastery, to test on this week's raid.

Hello there fellow owlkin
 
First of all - your gear. I want to stress out that it only gives you dps if you're doing your rotation corretly. Gear plays quite a little role in overall dps. 
However, I've opened your armory and can see that you're using Prophecy of fear. Afaik it is one of the crappiest trinket for us that exists. Int is not worthless, but other than that - you want to replace it. DSI (trinket from council) is kind of BiS and you want it for every fight in HFC. As for second trinket - you either need SoC (class trinket) for fights that you need that starfall cleave for adds or Sandman's Pouch (6/6) for single target non-demon damage ir heirloom trinket for single target demon fights.
As for your stats - Simcraft is your friend. Use it and test stuff. Currently you have +275 crit from enchants. I'm pretty sure that it is not worth it, and you'd better invest that ino haste, as you have only 745 haste compared to 1.6k enchanted crit. 
 
For your gameplay - learn to use potions. On hc archi kill you used 0 potions. 
Your dot uptime is quite low, your opener is a mess. Basically just read this thread and apply that to yourself. You're doing same mistakes, so I would just repeat myself :) 

 

So as I've mentioned - you need to get your rotation straight, that will improve your dps more than any gear change :)

Thanks for checking up on me--yeah, I still had Prophecy equipped from testing it on Iskar. Whoops. I normally run with DSI/SoC as my two. I believe on the Archi kill you're referencing I ran out of potions. Normally I try to use both.

 

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out!

 

:)

Not just Archi fight, I looked at 4 or 5 fights, and on most of them you only used 1 potion. That's just a point to improve :)

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      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, PUBG, 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.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684
