    Ret Paladin doing too little damage, needs help.

    According to the officers in my guild I should be doing way more damage than I currently put out.

    First some general information:
    My armory page: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sh...a&r=Darksorrow

    My rotation:
    Judge -> DS -> CS -> Cons -> HoW -> Ex -> HW (Against undead).
    I use AW when it's up, and DP when everything else is not, or my mana gets low.
    I have my sense undead up against all undead.
    I use Vengeance against single targets and bosses, command against groups.
    I flask up with Endless Rage, no potions.

    Example: This is an example log against the heroic training dummy in IF, so that I don't clip others nearby. http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/b1wbhhset55e48k3/
    I used my normal rotation and such for the battle, I was only self-buffed with might and vengeance, and I also flasked up.

    As far as I know, I'm not doing anything wrong, that's why I ask you guys what I'm doing wrong, and how much I should be getting.
    Is there a problem with my Gems/Enchants/Gear/Buffs/Rotation/...?

    Thanks in advance,

    Same Problem

    I have the same problem.. In ICC I do fine DPS but on halion and some Ulduar hardmodes I can only pull 5.1-5.4k DPS…
    I know it's not an issue of gear / enchants / gems but Obviously there is some problem, because I have a WoW-Heroes score of 3.1k and an addon gearscore of 5.9k
    any help/suggestions

    Well for a start, Ret paladins don't use a rotation, instead they use FCFS or First Come First Served. Bascially if something's off cooldown, press that button. There is a priority order to really maximise your DPS (At T10 levels of gear, Judgement > DS > CS > HoW > Consecrate > Exorcism > Holy Wrath is theorized to be the most dps) but the difference between just using whatever's not on cooldown and choosing between 2 available abilities is minimal.

    Here's an addon that actually tells you which button to press: http://elitistjerks.com/f76/t53171-r...tation_helper/
    i.e. it tracks your cooldowns and prioritises the abilities.
