I am not sure what I am doing wrong here but my dps seems pretty low around 5 to 6k. My rotation is FS (elemental mastery when not on cooldown) lava burst, CL, LB until lava burst is off cooldown. Maybe its my gear I am really not sure any help would be appreciated.http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Lightbringer&cn=Canto

1) Spirit weapon is wasted on shams, we get virtually 0 benefit from Spirit. Try to get another MH ASAP
2) Shield > Offhand frill. Bulwark of Smouldering Steel is a good one for shams.
3) Spell pen gems in your belt = no-no in PvE
4) You're slightly over hitcap (3% from talents, 1% from racial and possibly 3% from raid = only need 10 or 13%, you're at almost 15%)

Enchants seem fine, not sure but your Haste seems a bit lowish, might be better once you swap those other wasted stats out.

The spirit on your weapon and MP5 on your bracers aren't ideal, but sometimes you take what you can get. If you took that weapon out from under a clothie or druid, though, you lose 100 internets.

Off hands vs shields isn't that important, cause you have to take what you can get. I prefer using a shield, as most shamans do, cause that's what shamans do.

5-6k DPS in what situation? With full 25 man raid buffs, that is low. With 10-man raid buffs, you should be doing better on sit there and kill stuff fights like Festergut. In a 5-man, things never live long enough anyways.
