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.

      Good day people of the forums!
      Heavy Metal Gaming (Kel'thuzad) is a 2 day, casual raid guild looking to recruit a few more as we are coming to an end to ToS, and looking ahead to the next tier. Due to RL things, we have lost a couple of our key raiders and are in need of replacing/adding to our roster.
       
      Although we are casual, the roster is made up of exceptional players, and we are looking for like-minded/skilled players that are vocal in discord, and engage with the rest of the guild.
       
      The guild and group is made up of friends that have been gaming together for 10+ years. Many of us previously raiding in Top 50 guilds during TBC, WoTLK, and Cata.
      For Legion we are AOTC for all raid content and will continue to be.
      We are looking for:
       
      DPS
      Ranged:
      Hunter
      Warlock
      Mage
      Shadow Priest
      Ele Shaman
       
      Raid Times
      Tuesday & Wednesday 7-10PM Mountain time
      If you are interested in a laid back guild, but still want to crush heroic raids please respond to this thread, or feel free to add me:

      Or on discord: Deadly#2239

      This is certainly not a new topic on this forum.  I've tried to read most all postings on Ret Pally's and dps and comments. I am following the rotation I found here on Icy Veins and have put the rotations on Key bindings. I was in a bg today and someone whispered to me "hey guy, you need to put your rotation on key bindings, you suck."  I'm a woman,   My kill in bg is good, up with everyone else's but I always have the lowest dps.  I thought about just quitting this toon and bring up one of the 3 100's I have but I feel like if I quit I will lose out on playing skills that I need and will never learn to play as well as I could.  Besides, I don't like to just quit.  Thank you for any help and/or advice you can give me. 
      I am at 48 on my artifact weapon, I'm 110 Ret Pally on Kargath.  Fionoria is my toon's name.   Below is a link to my character and all stats, please have a look.
      ADDING BG Stats for tonight: 2 killing blow, 5 deaths, 185 honor kills, dps; 18707, healing 40,000,
      Please give advice, I would really appreciate your help.  Thank you.

      <Cryogenic> - 3/9M - Recruiting all RDPS classes for an immediate raid spot to round out our 20m roster. Tues/Weds 7-11 SERVER. Discord/Flask/Food provided for raiders. 925++. Pst for more info!!!

      The guild was founded by a group of friends with a mission, to progress through mythic raids without the toxic environment. The guild was formed halfway through EN and despite the late start we built a solid core of raiders and down 5/7M EN before the Nighthold was released. We ended up having to break up as soon as we cleared heroic Nighthold, but we are back with a vengance here on Stormrage now. 

      CURRENT PROGRESSION:
      Emerald Nightmare -- 5/7M
      Trial of Valor -- 3/3H
      Nighthold -- 10/10H 5/10M (Guild break after Gul'dan kill)
      Tomb of Sargeras -- 9/9N 9/9H 3/9M

      LOOKING FOR:
      We are currently looking for people that can commit to all raid days, who will show up prepared and not waste our time or their own time. We understand that real life happens, but we do ask that our raiders maintain at least 90% attendance and that can make sure they can raid without interruption. We don't have any strict attendance policies/punishments, however it is important for us to keep our progression as strong as possible, which relies heavily on raid wide attendance. 

      RAID TIMES:
      Tuesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic/Progression
      Wednesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic/Progression
      Thursday 8-11 Server (EST) Optional Heroic/Normal

      We also often run old content (M EN/ToV/Nightbane/Nighthold) as well as constant M+ groups throughout the day. These runs are 100% optional.

      RECRUITMENT:
      We are currently looking for all exceptional players to rebuild our raid team. We don't care about item level or prior experience. We want quality players to learn, grow, and progress with. We currently have a very strong core of raiders, but with attendance issues and people quitting wow, we are strongly shifting our focus on finding players that excel at their class/spec to round out the last few spots in our main roster. 

      CURRENT NEED:
      ALL DPS CLASSES - (ranged more so than melee)
      ALL EXCEPTIONAL PLAYERS

      EXPECTATIONS:
      We expect all raiders to come to raids prepared. This means: 
      - Having the correct gems/enchants (200 gems)
      - Class knowledge
      - Raid preparation. 
      We only raid 8 hours a week, so it is imperative that we don't waste time.All underpreforming players, regardless of rank and class, will be benched until performance can be brought up to par for the current content. We are not interested in carrying anyone, and if you cannot perform raid mechanics, then we are not the guild for you. Cauldrons and food will be provided by the guild bank when available. Everyone in the guild is taken care of, and this is done primarily through donation by our members. Our guild is a small community and we all pitch in to get things done.

      LOOT SYSTEM:
      As a guild we opt to run loot through a loot council that is run by the officers. Loot is distributed in a way that most benefits the raid team in terms of progression. Distributing loot factors are performance/attendance/role/rank (I.E. Trials are typically lower on loot priority. (Higher rank than takes priority over trial) Loot is always dished out in a way that is most beneficial to the guild is a whole, and is a completely transparent process to avoid drama. We use the add-on RClootcouncil for ease of distribution.
