How to Increase your DPS in World of Warcraft:
Don't wait on better gear to increase your dps--take active steps to do it yourself. At some point in the life of every WoW damage dealer the dps issue looms. With the addition of new patches that seem to include more and more bosses with enrage timers, it has never been so important to attain and keep a high dps output.
Know your class basics. As you have leveled your character you've probably learned things like which stats are best for your class/spec and what abilities you can spec into that will pack a punch. If you're unsure, run a search on mmocarts.com for other members of your class and take a look at which stats each spec favors.
Research your spec. Depending on whichever patch is current, some class specs offer higher dps outputs than others. Check your class' forums on worldofwarcraft.com and see what other people have to say about the relationship between spec and dps. You can also pay a visit to elitistjerks.com and get even more in depth calculations of why one spec may be a better choice than another.
Go after your gear. Now that you know what spec and stats you need, its time to go after the gear that will boost your dps even further. Visiting http://www.vipgolds.com will give you an overview of your character and potential upgrades for your character. Type these pieces into the search at thottbot.com or wowwiki.com and you'll know just where to go to get that particular piece. Don't be discouraged if a piece you'd like to have only drops in a raid you have no hopes of getting into right now. There are other pieces that will serve until you can work your way there. Making a forums post on your Warcraft class forums asking for help will usually yield experienced players willing to give you tips.
Don't underestimate PvP gear. Hardcore raiders tend to shun even epic pvp gear because, for PvE, it simply doesn't compare to the pieces they have to choose between. For the fresh 80, however, epic PvP gear is a godsend. It's easy to purchase, just go to Wintergrasp or battlegrounds to earn your honor, and it offers a big dps jump from simple quest or BoE gear. PvP gear can get your dps high enough to successfully run heroics of 10 mans that will allow you to gradually replace it.
Don't be cheap. Sure, you really hate to pay 100g for an enchant on a chestpiece you're sure you want to replace, but if you're reasonable certain that you will have a piece of gear for a while before you can get something better its in your best interests to make sure you are doing the best you can with what you have. This means no low level gems in epic gear as well. Make sure to check be.imba.hu to make certain you're getting the right gems and enchants. Once you use them you can replace them, but not without destroying them.
Don't neglect your rep. Certain dps boosting pieces (like the Arcanums offered by the Knights of the Ebon Blade and the shouder enchant that can be purchased from the Sons of Hodir) require that your raise your reputation with the faction that offers the piece for sale before you can purchase it. These help a lot and everyone who wishes to improve their character as much as they can should work on their rep with these factions in order to get them before they begin to grind reputation elsewhere.
Make a habit of your rotation. You could be specced properly, gemmed and enchanted properly, and have all the gear you need and still discover that your dps is lower than someone else using the exact same items. Rotation is key here. Your rotation is simply the pattern of abilities you use and in what order. You want to make sure that your best abilities are used every time their cooldown is up. Your rotation is going to be very different for each spec, so make sure you visit your class' forums and read up on rotations. Practice your rotations at a target dummy. You'll be surprised how fast you can get at something once you become accustomed to doing it often. Plus, you'll be pleased at what a large effect this has on your overall dps.
Don't overlook the small stuff. If you have 2k sp and a hit rating of 50, your dps is probably going to be lower than someone with 1.5sp and a capped hit rating. What about haste? Critical strke rating? Secondary stats can and do affect your dps greatly, so be sure to learn all you can about how to balance your primary and secondary statistics. Also, don't overlook things like buying an extra socket for your belt. The little things can add up to equal more dps and greater success in an instance or raid.
Keep up with changes. Classes never remain completely the same. Make sure that with every patch you keep up to date with the changes that have been made to your class so that you can always stay at the top of your game.
