Ret pallys! Haaaalp!

Hello friends,
I'm recently getting back to raiding after taking a break through all of Cataclysm and the first tiers in MoP. (Schedule change at work woo!) However, I'm finding that my dps is severely lagging behind. I'm pulling between 55-70k depending on the fight. I know my gear is sub par but I still feel I should be pumping out substainally more than this.

I've read the elitist jerks guide and am following it. Inquisition first, Then a priority of TV, ES, HoW, Exo, CS, Judge. Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated it. I've been working on it for about a week and just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
Depending what fights you're talking about, 55-70k isn't that far off.

You have no set bonuses, are fairly far under hit and expertise caps, one of your trinkets is really awful and (most significantly) your weapon is very far behind the ilvl of the rest of your gear.
You're neither hit nor expertise capped. Bring both of those to 7.5%, change wrist and glove enchants to the strength ones. Enchant your weapon with Dancing Steel. And don't gem haste just yet, your gear isn't ready for it to make gemming haste over strength worth it.

If it's not within your budget at the moment, then you'll just have to suffer, but at the very least get your hit and expertise to 7.5%
Good to know, I really appreciate it. Thank you both.
