Lock Problems Abound

I know this has been said many times on this board; however, I am still having issues. My PVP as demo is great I love it. The big BUT here is that when I raid I seem to preform rather poorly. I am not new to the game by any means, and i have raided successfully in the past as a tank. I cannot for the life of me find the disconnect. I am pulling 25k in a heroic single target with a 449 ilvl. I have not enchanted some lower end peices and I am forced to use some pieces that have spirit on them (the int and mastery bonus made up for it in comparison), I am just stuck. My roation in SBSS, MG as filler, popping CD's as appropriate. My rotation is the same thing thats listed on this site so I am just lost. Any help would be appreciated. I am at school and when I logged I was in my PVP gear so Ill comment with my armory link. Thanks in advance!!

449 ilvl explains most of your DPS. You've got to believe me when I say my DPS sucked from 442 ilvl (when I dinged 90) to about 350 ilvl. When I got up to 463, I almost doubled my 442 ilvl DPS. It's easier to hit cap and you gain more secondary stats as well as everything else. Your gems and enchants will contribute a significant portion of more stats. I'm guessing at your 449 ilvl you're likely not hit capped which is your biggest DPS gain. You're also not likely itemized correctly pulling you down further. Until you get some gear, your will be crappy...that's just all it is. If you can, look into buying the Contender's cloth pvp set from a Tailor. I gift these to all my guildies who ding 90 so they can instantly queue for heroics, but clothies can actually wear them. It requires 36 bolts of Windwool cloth (180 cloth/9 stacks) and will boost your off pieces until you get better.

I have a full set of PVP gear (this is my strong suit), but I always feel super bad using pvp gear in PVE, maybe I just need to get over that. I am almost hit capped, and I use a food buff to get me over that hump. Just to clarify what did you mean by "not itemized correctly" I just want to make sure I am getting it. Thanks again

You should NOT feel bad for using PvP gear in PvE anymore. They have decided not to penalize PvP gear from PvE stats. Take a look at your contender's set. Your gear has Stamina, Intellect, and 4 of the following: Mastery, Hit, Crit, Haste, PvP Power, PvP Resilience. Your PvP gear will always include the two PvP stats as well as 2 of the 4 secondary stats. Your PvE gear will only have 2 of the 4, without the PvP stats.

In fact, some of the Warlock PvP gear is better itemized than the justice point gear and the 458 PvP gear is better than some 463 heroic dungeon pieces due to it not having Crit. PvP gear can hold you over until you get your 476/489 gear in Vaults.

      Hello, I'd like to recieve feedback on my lock's deck.
      I was away from hearthstone since the expansion before kobolds and catacombs so it has been a while. I don't have much cards from the kobolds and monsters; but still here's my deck which is fun to play.

      Any suggestions on how to improve this one?

      The strategy is simple; using the deathrattle minions to kill them with the other warlock's minions, and using demons so DK Gul'dan can revive them.
       
      2x Blood Imp 2x Fire Fly 1x Glacial Shard 1x Leper Gnome 2x Sanguine Reveler 1x Voidwalker 1x Defile 2x Demonfire 2x Volatile Elemental 1x Deathspeaker 2x Devilsaur Egg 1x Tar Creeper 1x Unwilling Sacrifice 1x Void Terror 1x Dark Iron Dwarf 1x Hellfire 1x Pit Lord 2x Ravenous Pterrordax 2x Despicable Dreadlord 1x Doomguard 1x Twisting Nether 1x Bloodreaver Gul'dan Thanks in advance.

      Hello there all,
      I have been made aware by my guild leader that he has a concerned about my lack of high Damage on my Demonology Warlock.
      Would someone please look him over for gear & potential enchantment,gems Etc.
      He even refused to allow me in a guild raid lately since my dmg wasn't enough, so I went with someone else's guild instead, :)
      I subsequently much higher iLvL  2 relics, one trinket & a end Antoran Raid Aggramar / Argus ring legendary ring  too...
      Anyways I've had this same Warlock since about 2007 I got into wow just a bit before the Burning Crusades expansion came out, so yea I'm very attached to this Warlock of mine.
      I have recently re-did his crit enchants everywhere , gems & talents too, but he still doesn't seem to have gone up in dmg much though, oddly.
      Here is My warlock's wow armory page,OK?
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/fizzcrank/buudy
      If anyone would like me to run a raid,etc logging addon.
      I'd be happy to,  all I ask is to let me know what it is, where to get it, etc,please?
      Thank you:)
      Your fellow wow dungeon & raiding player,
