I think the problem is in my gemming. Here is my armory
I hover around 4.5-5k http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Shadowsong&n=Avakay
I know I can improve on some of my enchants.
I am working JC and Sons of Hodir faction for the shoulder enchants

That sort of figure isn't bad for your gear! However, your gemming is
a little weird.
Blue gems (or purple/green) are very poor for DPS. However, you do require two to activate your meta. Find places in your gear where there's a spellpower socket bonus attached to a blue socket and use only
two purple gems in them to get the socket bonus. Glowing
are both fine.
Every other socket should be filled with pure spellpower
, unless it's a yellow socket with a spellpower bonus in which case you can use an orange spellpower/haste
gem only as necessary get the spellpower socket bonus.
Edit: it's also OK to use hit gems, however, you get slightly more out of the itembudget using two orange sp/hit
gems than a single Rigid plus a single Runed. And it allows you to pick up more socket bonuses.
You'd also get slightly more DPS using the Tier 8 helm
(purchasable for conquest emblems) for the set bonus (freeing up a glyph slot) than using the slightly higher ilevel Onyxia one you're using now.
