http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Ysera&cn=Syse. Here is my armory, I just picked up http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47511 yesterday but I haven't gemmed or enchanted yet so they aren't equipped.

Looking for any tips from raiding blood-spec DK's. I normally do about 3.5-3.6k dps overall, occasionally hitting 4.5k on certain boosses.

My normal rotation is IT-PS-Pest-DS-HS on round 1. Round 2 is DS-HS-HS-HS-HS. If I have time on round 3 DS-PS-IT-Pest-HS, starting rotation again on round 2.

Any tips are welcome. Thanks in advance, Syse

Why are you using Pest so early is your rotation? Pestilence is purely to spread diseases or if glyphed, then to refresh your diseases. As a Blood DK you want to convert your FU runes to Death Runes using Death Strike, and spam the hell out of Heart Strike.

Stop gemming for crit, stop gemming for stam. You want to gem Strength as much as possible while maintaining your +hit and +expertise.

Your spec is all over the place, try a standard spec like 51/0/20 http://deathknightbuilds.com/.

There's tons of information here on the site covering all this stuff if you take the time to browse and use the search function. Elitist Jerks have a very comprehensive guide, http://elitistjerks.com/f72/t61176-blood_simple_blood_dk_dps_guide_updated_3_3_a/
