I can't seem to get into the new arcane shot / trick shot build for raids, my dps is much higher when running the old barrage and SW build.

Can anyone give me a quick run down on the rotation for the barrage / sidewinders build please.

Realistically you can't get as high numbers if you're using the old build, you just need to practise the new build until you get it right. Whether that be just normal dungeons or target dummies, you'll get the hang of it pretty quick. My advice is get a set of WeakAuras that help you track the cooldowns and procs so that it's easier to manage too.

Also, barrage got nerfed and is no longer a viable single target spell, and is significantly weaker on AoE than volley in most situations.

That's not really correct: it depends from the raid encounter. For example, for Helya mythic the old build (Sidewinders + Barrage) is the best one by far.

But yes, in general the new build with Trick Shot (with or without Volley) is better.

Well, I did say in most situations. But Sidewinders is now getting buffed so if you still like that playstyle you can go back to it for a small dps loss. Barrage is still for most situations not worth taking.
