I only parse with the same buffs I'll have in a raid. That's all class buffs and a blue stim. No adrenals, I'm usually using a proc relic and the stat stick relic, no clicky.
I was doing ~1520 DPS over a 6 minute parse. That's without being able to Vicious Throw and no armor debuffs.
Gear is all rakata except boots. I've swapped some extra Accuracy enhancements out for surge, and those are Columi (56). I had two augmented light sabers and 2 augmented armor pieces (chest and head) when I parsed that.
(because our 4 piece bonus sucks - and now I've got a 5th augment on my legs)
So that's an additional 72 strength (before buffs 5%) from augments.
The priority (at least for me) isn't set in stone but here is a basic guideline:
1) keep rupture up, but don't re-apply it before it finishes
2) don't lose your 3 stacks of the buff from annihlate
3) use deadly saber asap
4) use berserk asap so you can start building stacks again
5) only use Ravage when your main abilities aren't going to be finished for ~3 or more seconds.
I only use Vicious Slash if I have tons of rage and everything is on cool down.
I haven't tested it yet, but I have thought of using force charge whenever it's up to build rage instead of your basic attack, because it should build at least 1 more rage (2 if talented for it). I haven't tested to see what the average damage difference is between the two though. I expect that force charge is higher and I should have been doing this for a while (on bosses where extra charging isn't required).
Anyway, I hope that helps.
