I finally figured it out! After I spent 2 days making my own calculations and spreadsheets, reading guides, giving up on the spec all together and trying all sorts of other specs, I questioned my sanity. So I called a psychiatrist friend and asked if he could test me for insanity.

Psychiatrist: Ok, let's start by logging into the best damage dealer alt and buying a full set of recruit gear for him.
Me: Wouldn't that be a clear sign of insanity by itself?
Psychiatrist: No, it's refundable even after use. Listen - use that recruit gear to check the DPS under these conditions to have a baseline for comparison.

The solution was: There never was a problem. My DPS was fine for recruit gear, only 10 % below my best damage dealer which I've played for months. Now that I think about it, my other chars always had a better start at lvl 50, like a black hole offhand sent from an Alt for example.
