[Ret] Log analysis - How can I improve?

Hey guys, a guildie told me to make a thread here since I am the only Retadin in our 25 man and was hoping somebody could analyze a fight or two and give me some contructive feedback.

due to the armory being down, I'll just drop a screenshot of my unbuffed stats pane down p2Exb3D.png

I am using Heroic Eye (4/4) and WF Thok's tail (0/4) and currently have the T16 2 set bonus

Guild told me that Iron Juggs was one of the best fights to use when showing logs, this log is from before I had my 2 piece and tail tip though

I am currently using the same rotation in the guide here on the site except that I use Judgement before Crusader Strike.

Thanks for the help in advance, I really appreciate it!

One of the big things I notice is you're not lining up your Str Procs, with your ES casts. If you were an Engi, I'd suggest a macro for ES and a normal ES button; however, since you aren't you should like ES up with every Dancing Proc you can. 

 

Also try your hardest to keep Inq up 100% of the time. It is your most important buff.

 

I'd also like to know your gems, as those are a big deal.

Thank you for the reply!
Gems are as follows
Capacitive Primal Diamond and Fierce Verm Onyx in helm
Lightning Wild Jade x 2 in shoulders
Precise prim ruby x2 and 1 quick sun's rad in chest
1 fierce verm and 1 precise prim ruby in gloves
2 fierce verm onyx in legs
1 precise prim ruby in boots
1 fierce verm onyx in Ring2
1 quick sun's rad in weapon

I've been using the standard haste ret build. Should I create a weakaura with triggers set for trinket procs?

I have taken a look at your armory profile: (i hope this is realy yours wink.png )

You are using TI trinket instead of Thoks which is not the first choice.

Geming is not optimal. You should try to reach haste cap, i.e. 40% so you should drop some inv_misc_gem_x4_rare_cut_red.jpgBold Primordial Ruby and prefer inv_misc_gem_x4_rare_cut_orange.jpgFierce Vermilion Onyx and inv_misc_gem_x4_rare_cut_yellow.jpgQuick Sun's Radiance instead.

Uhh, didn't know that ...

I was amazed at the screenshot tongue.png

Haha, yeah, my RL had me switch to ret and I was the only strength dps rolling on gear in our 25 man, gear is getting upgraded very quickly, for the past week the priority has been filling my slots rather than optimizing them and pretty much from here on out I'll just be rolling on the haste pieces I need to hit the higher haste tiers. I also have logs for Blackfuse which represent the gear I am currently wearing. Guild Mistress didn't take logs for Blackfuse, I was doing about 210k on that fight, I really would have liked to see my uptimes.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
