DPS is low

Warlock
So I’m currently item lvl 342 on my warlock and for some reason I’m always putting out between 5-6k dps for normal npc and sometimes bosses. Yesterday I was doing uldir and out of 21 people I was bouncing around between 8-16 which I should be a lot higher than that in dps rank. I’m doing the right rotations but idk why I’m not doing enough dps. Could it be the people I was with had much higher item lvl which is why I was at the bottom bc I read the exact rotation on icey veins.

Icy veins for warlocks is trash

Your trinkets are complete trash

Run Dark Soul Misery over Creeping Death

You have no enchants, especially no Quick Navigation/Masterful Navigation on your weapon.

And as the other guy said go to LOSS because i doubt your rotation is actually correct.
One of your trinkets is a tanking trinket. Also if you want rotation feedback we need logs.

Also those things are what you need to make it to the top.
It's likely your rotation. Downtime between casts can make a difference.

Trinket upgrade will help a little, enchant adds 300 or so dps.

Optimal Talents is also important, but don't fall into the trap of thinking that the cookie cutter spec is going to always be the best. Sadly the optimal affliction spec is also the most complicated and the best spec is only best when played optimally.

DS:M is more dps,but you have to know how to optimally use it. The other two talents are easier to use and are maybe 2-3% less dps.
Also, are you comparing yourself to same item level? You should only feel bad if everyone there is 342 or under 350.
Reference the websites you posted, will those help with damage in PvP? Mainly bgs as I dont arena. Just found out about LOSS yesterday but just want to make sure it's legit and not like noxxic.
LOSS is pretty legit you could always go to the warlock discord as well and ask questions
Ok awesome, thanks!
Another thing I'd like to add, I was doing garbage damage until I finally got my haste up pretty good.
Also if you're raiding, on either your helmet or your shoulders, you need to have the raid azerite trait selected. For the "Reorigination Array"
