Demo dps in raids

Warlock
So I’m leveling my demo lock and in raids I’m normally around 2-5 in dps mostly top 3 but I feel like I can be doing more. I’m currently 355 in item lvl and it’s saying I’m supposed to do around 19k on raidbot. In dungeons I’m doing like 11-13k against mobs and sometimes more if my cooldowns are all up but in raids i can’t hit over 12k in boss fights in normals but the top guy is doing like 12k. Does more people effect your dps bc more people are playing? Also will affliction put out more dps than demo at the moment?
1. In what world are you simming for 19k on raidbots? You are going to need to be at 380+ before you're reaching a 19k sim.

I just simmed you on raidbots and it comes out to be 12.6k on a 5 minute Patchwek fight, which is close to what you are telling us your DPS number are.

2. Do you have logs of your raid? It is hard to give you constructive criticism without looking over logs.

Okay, a couple of things before we delve into your logs.

1. Try to get Quick Navigation enchant on your staff if you can afford it and if you cannot afford it then buy a cheaper torrent of elements.

2. Get haste enchants to your rings. Either the +27 if you're short on gold or the +37 one if you have the money.

3. If you have a piece of Azerite gear that is dropped from Uldir then equip that over and one of the 3 pieces of Azerite you have. You want to equip one with either Archive of the Titans or Laser Matrix so you can unlock Reorigination Array. Reorigination Array will give you a stack of +75 secondary stat depending on how many weeks you have killed 3 Uldir bosses.

4. I'd suggest https://bloodmallet.com/ for basic gearing guidance.

5. Use a flask if you are not. They are far cheaper for the duration over using Battle potions, which should not be needed in Normal Uldir.

6. Your DPS isn't too far off from your simulated DPS but a lot of doing the most damage is learning how to pool your cooldowns and understanding the fight.

Just by looking at your Zek'Voz kill you did not use implosion once on the Silithid warriors. With a DH tank they should be running Sigil of chains and grouping them up so you can bladestorm with your felguard and run the hand of gul'dan Aoe rotation into fel implosion.

You can plug in your logs and it'll give you a basic idea of your CD usage.
