Fire Mage DPS problems

Im have been a raider now since BC and playing since Vanilla. But come this expansion I have been having a big problem with DPS. I have tried to do the correct rotations and right talents for right fights. We tried eligon last night and my dps was on bottom. I couldn't get above 50k dps no matter what I did. I tried 4-5 attempts as frost and one as fire. I have been pushing to be frost since i love that spec. I played fire in cata and did well. But as fire my heroic dungeons are lower than what i think i should be.

we didnt have any WoLs last night since it was first night in there. my dps was between 47- 51k dps through skada.

my hit is low right now im trying to reforge to get hit with enough crit and haste. I think i put too much into crit.

Buffs: Dal Brilliance, Molten Armor, flask of warm sun, and Int food. with int pots.

What am i missing .

my rotation is

LB (keep up)

lava burst ( when getting hot)

Pyroblast ( hot streak)

fire ball

Combustion when i get near 25-30k ignites

Mirror images on cd

rune of power since my haste is so low.

and later time when mirror images are up.

Any help would be great since im going to get replaced soon if i cant fixed this and I cant really figure out why my dps is so low.

First and foremost, get your reforge/regem better. Use Askmrrobot if you need, or just some more sense. You are reforging to haste instead of expertise/hit (eg belt boots).

Get some really easy upgrades. Mithril Stopwatch is just bad (unfortunately). Get the +int/crit proc trinket or +hit/int on use trinkets (both are better than your dragonling/stopwatch). Enchant your gloves expertise etc etc.

Really your gear/gem/enchants/reforge could improve quite a lot.

Outside of that, your rotation seems to be correct. Are you using Alter Time at all? It can help a lot (46 seconds of time warp instead of 40 is huge! Plus all your other 10-20 second proc buffs extended). Have you played around with different lvl 90 talents? I personally use the Invocation instead of Rune of Power and did tests to find it was better for me. Spend this weekend in front of a target dummy testing different talents/specs to see what works for you.

I would personally guess that you're still missing on a bunch of your casts, would could cause the low dps. Remember that mages now can utilize expertise in reaching hit cap (5100, or 15%, is the magic number here). You're armory right now is showing you about 800 points shy.

Example:

Reforge your Wire of the Wakener Mastery -> Expertise, and you'll gain another 145 points towards your hit cap. Same with your Girdle of Endemic Anger & Sandals of the Shadow & both rings, and you're well on your way to reaching your hit cap.

As midgettoes suggested, try out Invocation instead of Rune, and don't forget about using Alter Time during Lust/Warp/Hero... if you can, try to use it when you've got a Pyro! & Hot Streak up, as your AT expires, you'll immediately have a instacast pyro up and IB will give you another, which can really bump up that Ignite number.

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now.

      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)

      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.
