Juggernaut | Guardian DPS Discussion

RE: Juggernaut | Guardian DPS Discussion
Ok guys, I need a hand desperately with regards to my DPS. When we are talking DOTS are we talking about the burning or the 12 second dot on Plasma Brand? I am still doing below 1000 DPS on average and my combat logs can be found here and my character page can be found here. I can't seem to consistently average above the 1000 mark.
I know my gear isn't optimal as I have been prioritizing getting my purple modifications over getting my relics replaced. Even with all the gear I have now I feel my DPS should be higher, and I can't seem to figure out where my really good DOTs are everyone talks about (I read I should see around 20% of my total damage due to DOTs?).
I know my rotation isn't perfect, but I am consistent on my crits with Blade Storm and Dispatch, so I know I am using Plasma Brand and Overhead Slash correctly. My rotation generally boils down to...
Saber Throw>Force Leap>Overhead Slash>Blade Storm>Sundering Strike and Combat Trance (these are macro'ed so hitting one triggers both)>Plasma Brand>Master Strike....
And then it tends to settle into this priority...
Dispatch if buffed and available
Blade Storm if buffed and available
Plasma Brand if available
Overhead Slash if available
Sundering Strike/Combat Trance if < 7 focus
Pommel Strike or Opportune Strike if available
Master Strike w/o clipping
I like throwing in Pommel Strike and Opportune Strike for a few reasons:
1) They cost no Focus, so don't delay using any other big hitters
2) They have DPS comparable to our biggest hitters
3) They only take 1 GCD so make any clipping discussion unneeded
Unfortunately I took the 5% accuracy debuff over sunder from saber throw to help in our group situations but it really turned out to be a waste. As soon as my skill reset becomes free again I am going to swap them and take the buff to Master Strike over the buff to Force Sweep (it seemed reasonable if I was going to sweep every 10 seconds or so to keep the debuff on the targets).
Any help here is greatly appreciated. I have been wracking my brain for about 2 weeks on where my weaknesses are outside of my relics.
Thanks in advance.
