    Default I'm really having a hard time increasing my dps

    I tried a lot of things, including respecs, upgrades (not all yet) and I'm doing a lot less dps then the necro who doesn't even have his masters...

    I'm really hoping someone could shed some light, maybe i'm doing something wrong somewhere. I'm hoping it's just a gear problem, which I'm continuously working on.

    My current dps without lifeburn on a training dummy is at 900k to 1mill (sometimes at 1.4mill if i'm lucky). In a group, sometimes it goes up to 1.8mil, but not all the time.

    The reason I'm even thinking about dps because many folks in top tiers keep telling me that necros are Tier 1 dps'rs, which I'm having trouble believing, but I trust their word.

    AA Specs:
    As a start, I have 3 different AA specs, 2 of them based on some high dps'rs. None of them change the amount of dps I do.

    Spell Casting Order
    My spell casting order is as follows:
    Note: I actually do higher dps with using macros as it picks the top spells when ready. It's only used for direct dmg spells.

    /send pet
    Bloodcoil (repeat when up)
    Lifetap
    Master's strike (i have Gangel's Toothy Necklace, which allows me to use it on any target and increases the base dmg by 200%)
    Rot Flesh or Deathgrip (based on AA spec)
    Soulburn
    Soulrot

    If non of above spells are ready, I cast the below in order:

    Arcane Bewilderment
    Animated Dagger
    Shadowstep
    Blighted Horde
    Awaken Grave
    Consumption

    Generally, I cast Spellbind or Elemental Toxicity before Lifeburn or other spells such as Undead Horde and AEs.

    Macro:

    I am open to all critical feedback, including how much I suck at being anything. I don't care how bad, i'm just anxious to see where the problem may lie including me personally.

    Thanks,
    Archimond.

    You need to cast soulrot alot more, dumbfires should be casted as soon as they are up (timed with every other TW) Spellbind lines up with TW so cast it along with the dumbfires
    And dualconversion gives the best dps
    Necros arent T1 dps, we can be close on some pure singletarget mobs but thats about it.
