We generally prefer that you send this sort of thing via PM.
Your gear is fine. As earlier stated, you want to gem for agility instead of AP, but that won't cause that big a disparity.
I'm going to guess (without seeing a WWS) that the issue is one (or both) of two things:
1. You haven't trained the highest rank of ES. I went for a week myself after switching to SV before I realized that I was using rank 1 ES and Aimed Shot.
2. Your shot choices are bad. SV is considerably different than BM was. You cannot rely upon either a fixed shot rotation or a spam macro. I use (and recommend) the following priority:
a. Kill Shot -- I have this macro'd into my ES, AS, and SS, so I don't really count this.
b. Explosive Shot - If you are in the middle of an LnL proc, you either need to pause for a sec or so (after GCD) between ES's or slip in an instant (Aimed Shot, SrS, or even HM)
c. Aimed Shot (or Multi-Shot if you don't have Aimed)
d. Serpent Sting
e. Steady Shot
Getting the priority and the timing right is the (IMO) tricky part of SV. You can't simply use a rule like ES,SS,SS,SS,ES,...
Fixing both of these issues should add nearly 800-1000 dps right away. Beyond that, it's about raid synergy, trinket procs, etc.
Thanks man! I use the shot priority that you listed, my ES is trained up all of the way, guess it's just gemming/enchants. I may also drop herbalism for JC. Thanks again guys!
