First thing out of the way, here is my characterhttp://www.wowhead.com/?profile=us.baelgun.maxtronius
Notice how everything matches :)
At this point I'm not sure how much hit % I should have/shoot for. My only real goal for this character is to do decent damage in 10-man raids.

(kinda wierd spec you got there).
Basically you should aim at around 390 hit rating (~11-14% spell hit).

well, if u have Nerves of the cold steel and Virulence, u ll only need 8% hit rating.
this covers the soft melee special hit cap(5%) and spell hit(8%), unbuffed.
11% spell hit from gear (pre talents), Mister. It wont get him capped unless he raids with Boomkin/Shadowpriest, but since there is a chance he is, there is a sort of diminishing returns on hit beyond that point.
My hit is at 12.7%, 318. So I'm fine and don't need to try and get more hit?
You are special hit capped, you got 9.7% melee hit from gear (if you mouseover in profiler you will notice it adds your talents). Profiler numbers are pretty confusing. Your 318 rating gives you 12.12% spell hit (number in profiler adds Virulence). Your hit is fine however to get spell hit capped wihout worrying about boomkin/shadowpriest/dranei you need 368 rating (must have mixed the numbers earlier). Above this hit rating will only change your melee hit chart.
I told Eleazer the numbers will be confusing unless he posts the hit rating needed for each (which i kindly calculated for him) and seems i was right.
Why wierd spec? Have you read the sticky? Even if not check this out:
You take Death Chill which is useless for dps - KM procs and Subversion account for 50%+ crit rate on all of the listed skills - this skill is a filler for 2h tanking - 120s cd.
You havent taken Unbreakable Armor which even nerfed (used to be 25% str, but 2 mins cd) is still a fantastic cd. 20s duration 60s cd = 33% uptime of 10% str, for unholy rune? (which can be obtained from
blood tap easily - i got these two skills macroed together with a dps trinket).
You got no Merciless combat, which is kinda usefull for bosses.
Due to above you got only 2/3 Subversion (but 3/3 BCB). BCB will not produce very high numbers with your current gear level (crit/hit/haste/ilvl of weapons), but still in your wierd spec its ok to fill it (definatelly better option than 3/3 Subversion and 2/3 BCB, check sticky for that).
Speaking of hit. You got extremly low crit and expertise. You get expertise capped you need 26 (16 from gear) expertise skill. You got 13 (3 from gear). Work on that instead of worrying about hit. Lack of expertise cap will eat your Obli/FS/Melee damage which is top chunk of it.
Replace that awfull enchant on bracers (for 15 exp)
Replace that cheap enchant on gloves (for 15 exp)
PS: Considering your low crit i would replace you cheap as$ haste enchant on cloak for 22 agi.
PS2: Your meta gem is terribly horrible, use Relentless earthsiege
or Chaotic skyflare
- make sure you correct the gemming so you lighten it up. My prefference is the first as it needs only 1 blue.
