I did a test on a target dummy a bit ago for 5 minutes and did about 60-65k dps, but my ilvl is 493, and I feel like that's not very good. I have researched the proper priority of our spells and abilities, so I'm 99% I'm doing those correctly, but it's just not yielding very good results.
Perhaps I should be delaying some of my cooldowns so that they overlap more? I already do this if I do not have to wait a reasonably long time to line them up, so I'm unsure.
Also, how accurate is simulation craft? Obviously it's just a simulation and you can't perfectly recreate a human playing, but for the stat weights, it said that str was about 3.6, and haste was 1.6. I've read that at the point where I am, 2 haste should be worth more DPS than 1 str, however this does not reflect that.
I do realize my weapon is only a 483 weapon (sha touched gem though), and doesn't have dancing steel, plus I don't have any profession bonuses right now, but I still feel a bit underpowered. I know there are rets who can pull good dps so I was just wondering if I'm missing anything. Could latency affect my dps that amount, should I perhaps adjust some settings?
Thanks for reading, and I would appreciate any help!
