Thoughts of Arcane (rotation)

After last update on September, 15th an arcane mage guide contain a thing that confuse me:

1. Earlier during burn phase and RoP+AP activated a guide suggest to use Arcane Missiles if 3 stacks acquired. Now it suggests to use AM whenever available. I see two different ideas behind these rotations:
a) using only when 3 stacks acquired because AP's buff for -30% mana cost gives the cue to use as many ABs as possible; you can spend your 1st and 2nd AM charges later (after RoP+AP fades);
b) AM is obvious DPS booster and using it whenever available means boost for your DPS but simultaneously means that your burn phase will be a bit shorter (cause you will waste several GCDs on free-cost missiles).

I'm casual player (jk 5 days played on lvl 110) and didn't start simulator or smth like this. May anyone confirm that DPS boost via 1st and 2nd AM charges under RoP+AP >>> 1-2 extra ABs during longer burn phase?

Hopefully someone else can pick this one up, I don't know much about playing an Arcane Mage in Legion beyond simming!

      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.

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.
