Better focus pooling and KC usage would see you rise a little bit.  42 casts out of a possible 48.

 

Another thing to do is make sure BW covers two KCs by having KC very near or off CD before you activate BW.

 

Otherwise, your play is pretty solid.  Advanced techniques could include trying to hover around 70 avg focus, swinging from 100 to 40 instead of 70 to 10.  Makes not capping harder, but makes sure you get every possible KC.

I agree with Hybrys. You know the bm priority pretty well. You may find an add line JSHB can help you with estimating your focus for your next shot. Its a pretty nifty addon that puts customizable focus bar on your screen.

 

So here you can see that casting my cobra shot will almost focus cap me. My bar will change colors depending on what my current focus is. Below 40 focus it turns red, below 95 it turns green and at 96+ its a yellow color. The darker yellow indicates what my focus will be after cobra shot hits.  It also shows you the focus regen if you are casting a cobra shot. It will show you dps cooldowns and durations.

Thanks for the response Hybrys , I've never tried hovering over high amounts of focus, I've been told that spending = DPS . How does the 100-40 pool range work and does it feel the same ?

Spending does = DPS, but you spend and gain the same amounts when pooling focus; it just looks like a higher number.  When the fight is coming to a close (last 10-15 seconds), you'd dump your focus to 0 and come out exactly the same as not pooling, as long as you didn't focus cap.

 

It feels pretty awkward, really.  You have to train yourself to not spend it.  But it would definitively fix your KC issue by always having focus available for it.

 

 

The alternative is better predicting when KC is going to come off CD, and having 50 focus ready for that.  That requires a lot of attention and forethought compared to trying to pool, though.

I've been told that when opening not to use focus gaining cd's ex.(Dire beast, Cobra shot) because of the buff you get from bestial wrath, is it true in this case ? Am I at all times trying to keep 40-100 focus besides the last 10-15secs. Thanks again for the reply

I always hit Dire Beast and Bestial Wrath together, personally.  They line up together so nicely, and the extra focus from Dire Beast could allow more Arcane Shots during BW.

 

Typically, you'll want to avoid Cobra Shot, and only use spenders (KC > GT > Arc) during BW.  This is because your spenders do more damage than Cobra Shot and the multiplier affects them more.

 

What I used to do is sit around 30-35 focus, until KC has around 1.5 sec of the CD left, then I Cobra Shot into a KC.  Pooling focus isn't a hard and fast rule.  It's just worthwhile to know that KC is the most important spell, and if you don't hit it every time you're losing damage.

Yea that looks great. I know it has taken me a long time refine my ui. A good ui can increase dps as much as getting the shot priorities right.

      I know shamans are kinda messed up right now, what else is new.
      But I'm up to 900 and my already underwhelming DPS has seen no significant increase. I'm pretty sure it's tied to my low haste rating, but I'd like to make sure and see if it's just that or something else I can work to change.

      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/tichondrius/nimbonya
       
      I'll Sim around 760k, This week I got 630k on Krosus, going up to 900k on Skorp and Tich.
      I feel like this is all far too low, one of our top dps is a warlock at i897 and often easily goes 900k and up just on single target.
      I could really use some help figuring out what I've done wrong and what I could improve.

      My usual priority rotation works as follows:
      >Maintain Landslide/Flametongue/Hailstorm
      >Doom winds when off CD and Stormbringer proc'd.
      >Stormstrike when proc'd
      >LavaLash when proc'd
      >Stormstrike when off CD
      >Lavalash when 90+ Maelstrom
      >Rockbiter when -90 Maelstrom
      Feral Spirit-Crash Lightning combo and Doom Winds I'll sometimes delay if there's an add/burn phase, and I have a habit of refreshing Flametongue and Hailstorm on CD if I don't have any procs. I'll also occasionally mismanage Maelstrom and need to do 2-3 Rockbiters to get back up to speed.

      My opener consists of: Prolonged Power>Feral Spirit>Rockbiter>Crash Lightning>Flametongue>Frostbrand>Stormstrike

      So I was raiding with a rogue that was doing around 750k~ dps, i'm still learning assassination and i hover around 450-500k because I'm bad. However I noticed he was using deadly for a lot of the fights even though he was specced for agonizing. Should I be switching back and fourth?

      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, Dota, 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.
