How to improve your DPS if it's bad -

Attack speed boosts your dps tremendously.

Rings and amulets that give damage (IE, +6-12 damage) are incredible for increasing your dps output.

Stack as much intellect as you can.

If you have a lot of + damage gear (high DPS weapon, rings and amulet with damage increasers) then intellect and attack speed are going to increase your dps a LOT.

It's best to get a little bit of everything. Get some damage gear, get some attack speed gear, and stack a lot of int. If you stack too much, too much int, or too much attack speed your dps will suffer. For example, if you have 5000 dps and you don't have any attack speed items yet, a 10% attack speed increase will boost you to 5500. But if you're at 5000 dps and you already have 30-40% attack speed, another 10% isn't going to help that much, and it's better to get some damage or int.
Funny thing is, if you increase your Attack speed, it isn't actually making you do more damage per spell... instead you're just doing more damage per minute... So I think the DPS indicator is quite misleading. If I am using Arcane Orb, and I increase my Attack speed, it's not exactly going to increase the damage my Arcane Orb does? Or does it?
