Hey, guys--I thought I'd solicit a bit of help from the experts. I seem to be missing something fairly simple, because i'm having a lot of difficulty breaking the 11-13k barrier. I'm doing about 11.5k on a raid dummy self-buffed. I understand people are pushing out more like 18k in raids, and I sort of doubt the additional 6k is all raid buffs. So . . . any suggestions? I'm kinda spinning my wheels a bit here.
I'll post a link to an armory that should be up to date. I'm still in heavy spirit gear to get to the 17% hit cap, so I'm a bit lower than I like in mastery/haste, but I don't think my gear is awful at this stage. I'm hit capped, I've redirected most of crit to haste/mastery.

In terms of rotation, I am dropping a spell haste totem, searing, mana, and whatever encounter specific earth totem seems reasonable. Flame shock maintained, LVB, LB, etc., until 7-9 stacks are up on lightning shield, then I ES. Refresh FS, searing as needed. I have removed unleased elements from my rotation for the most part. My ES tracks about the same as my FS damage on fights, or a bit lower, so I was wondering if that was an issue (maybe 6% or so).
I'm using flametongue weapon, of course.
I don't see significant lag for the most part. Maybe 250ish latency on raids with heavy graphics.
Decent computer, good connection . . . lousy player?
I would love some suggestions if you guys are kind enough to offer some.
(And thanks for the posts of wisdom, btw--long time reader!)
