title says it all.
my willpower is at 2361 and im in the basic Arkanian force masters gear, havent moved mods around at this point
This is my best parse as of right now, but i mainly stay around 1700-1800.

idk if im doing anything wrong or if its just the gear.

any tips on how to improve (besides the gear).
any help would be great.

I can tell you that you're not spamming hard enough.
01:50:11.175 Zay's Lightning Strike hits Combat Training Target MK-5 for 1789 energy damage, causing 1789 threat.
01:50:11.664 Zay's Affliction (Force) hits Combat Training Target MK-5 for 543 internal damage, causing 543 threat.
01:50:11.771 Zay's Forked Lightning hits Combat Training Target MK-5 for 534 energy damage, causing 534 threat.
01:50:12.279 Zay spends 34 Force.
01:50:12.281 Zay activates Lightning Strike.

That's too much time in between - almost a full second delay, between when you finished your cast and started the next one. Set your command queue to 1 second and make sure you're activating the next lightning strike well before the first one is finished.

forgot to mention that i was on the fleet so one of my casts just stopped midway and i sat there incapable of doing anything numerous times..... lol

but i recently did it again and i parsed around 2300 i think... didnt do anything different. maybe they changed something on the website or i just got a little better, not sure though lol
