Your questions are quickly approaching the line of "tell me how to gear my character for me." There are ways to make the available tools work on a Mac. Also, you've received some decent advice already, so give it consideration and come back if things still don't work out, particularly once you get your second T10 piece.
Looking at your gear, it could be a number of things. Right now, you've broken 4pc T9, and not to upgrade to 2pc T9/2pc T10.
You're quite right in guessing that I've lost the bonus from 4p T9 in exchange for certain things. In hopes of switching it out with 2p T9, 2p T10. Given now after spending so long on the forums I'm realizing more and more that losing the bonus made me lose quite a bit of my DPS gain that I had before (usually topping out at around 9k after DRW and other CD's available through trinkets).
My only question now is, given that losing my 4p bonus dropped my DPS would it be more appropriate at this time to be socketing gems giving +Str or should I leave the +ArP and lose anything +Hit for +Str? Knowing that ICC gear and T10 are giving much larger amounts of ArP than seen pre-3.3, I have a feeling that this is the case. As far as the cloak and trinket go... I originally took them as GS boosts yes, but at the same time they provided me with +Exp/+Crit that at the time seemed more important than the possible upgrade in Str.
Your feedback was definitely helpful, so any more you could give is greatly appreciated.
