6. Weapons Enchants

Here is the best enchants for 1H and 2H weapons:

Two-Handed Weapon: Formula: Enchant Staff - Greater Spellpower

One-Handed Weapon: Enchant Weapon - Mighty Spellpower

7. Rotation

All rotation is based on proc Eclipse. Dont use dot spells during Eclipse, cuz you will lose a lot of damage.

Maintain Faerie Fire on the target.

Cast Starfall when it’s off cooldown

Cast Force of Nature when it’s off cooldown.

Chain cast Wrath during Eclipse (Solar), and cast Starfire during Eclipse (Lunar).

Chain cast Wrath after leaving Eclipse (Solar), and cast Starfire after leaving Eclipse (Lunar), until the next Eclipse proc.

Refresh your DoTs when outside of Eclipse. If you are in Eclipse cast either Wrath or Starfire

If Eclipse has about to start and your DoTs are down: refresh Insect Swarm for Solar and Moonfire for Lunar.

If Eclipse just ended and your DoTs are down: refresh Insect Swarm if you just came out of Lunar, refresh Moonfire if you just came out of Solar.

8. DPS Stat Priority

Here is main stats that you need. INT or spirit isn't so important, so don't focus on them.

Hit 9%(for alliance) and 10%(for horde) from gear, 17% is optimal.

Spell Power - as more as you can

Critical Strike (33% min - 45% optimal cap)

Haste (585 cap, more - better)
