So I am not very good at reading logs, I simply just get confused trying to figure it all out, so I'm hoping maybe one of you would be willing to break this down for me like you're talking to a 5th grader.

 

So, Eyeball (me) cannot seem to keep up with my guildie Spingy, however according to our armories, I'm only one item level lower. However, looking at the logs I'm about to post, he kicked my ass shamefully. This is just one sloppy kill of Flamebender on mythic, but it's a good example of the average difference between he and I.

 

So, logs:

 

Eyeball: Mythic Flamebender Ka'graz

Spingy: Mythic Flamebender Ka'graz

 

You can see on our kill that I wasn't even close in DPS, and I really can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I'm hoping someone can give me some feedback on what to do (or not to do) to pull my numbers up.

See how most of his damage to the cinder wolfs are from Doom. He is going meta and Cataing the wolves to put a doom on them. The fight (all of BRF really) is bugged so that things that are no longer alive still take damage. So those wolves are taking Doom ticks long after they are DEAD this HUGELY inflating his numbers.

 

Your damage for your ilvl is a little low but only ~5k-ish low, not the 15k that it looks like compared to your friend.

I had a feeling he was padding purposely lol. But how do I raise my ~5k, is that just not enough uptime on DoTs? Maybe put my pet on passive and direct him to stay on bosses with adds so he doesn't stop his consistent attack? I certainly don't want to fall behind in damage.

Doom on the Wolves is NOT padding. Just to make that clear. It's just an (un)fortunate effect on this boss due to how they coded it.

He isn't really padding, I mean he might be, but Doom on wolves doesn't always equal padding necessarily. If he is throwing Dooms up when they have 1% hp, then ya he is padding for paddings sake. But if the Dooms are just from the cata he is casting then it isn't really padding, it's just blizzard having no idea how to code a game.

I'll take a crack at this when I get back to my home PC later on. There's likely a few things that can make up the difference but I won't know until I get the time to really look into it :) stay tuned!

      About us:
      Gordian Knot is a 20-man semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 70% attendance per month.
      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      Currently :
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot's way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Thursdays. Also, every Friday and sometimes Saturdays too, we're on RBGs killing alliance scums!
      Saturdays are generally left for those RBGs or older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Our current guild progress is 2/11 on Antorus mythic, and we're focusing on getting further Mythic progress. Our aim is to always progress as much as possible but also to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere at the same time!
      If you're interested in joining Gordian Knot, please fill in our application form, located at http://gordian-knot.eu/apply/, alternatively please whisper one of our officers:
      Jenquai - Athlios#2283
      Leleko - Leleko#2235
      Narweena - Sephyra#2517
      or contact me on discord Athlios#0153
      PS. We're always open to group applications or guild merging discussions.
      We are also open and welcome social applications.

      <Cryogenic> - 11/11H 2/11M - Currently in HIGH demand for a Holy Priest (possible immediate raid position) as well as any competitive DPS classes to push through Mythic Antorus core spots are up for grabs.. 950+/75+ tratis. Raid times are Tues/Weds 7-11 server.
      The guild was founded by a group of friends with a mission, to progress through mythic raids without the toxic environment. 
      CURRENT PROGRESSION:
      Emerald Nightmare -- 5/7M
      Trial of Valor -- 3/3H
      Nighthold -- 10/10H 5/10M (Guild break after Gul'dan kill)
      Tomb of Sargeras -- 9/9N 9/9H 4/9M
      Antorus, the Burning Throne - 11/11N 11/11H 2/11M
      LOOKING FOR:
      We are currently looking for people that can commit to all raid days, who will show up prepared and not waste our time or their own time. We understand that real life happens, but we do ask that our raiders maintain at least 90% attendance and that can make sure they can raid without interruption. We don't have any strict attendance policies/punishments, however it is important for us to keep our progression as strong as possible, which relies heavily on raid wide attendance. 
      RAID TIMES:
      Tuesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic Progression
      Wednesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic Progression
      Thursday 8-11 Server (EST) Optional Heroic/Normal (ALT's Welcome)
      We also often run old content (M EN/ToV/Nightbane/Nighthold/ToS) as well as constant M+ groups throughout the day. These runs are 100% optional.
      RECRUITMENT:
      We are currently looking for all exceptional players to add to our raid team. We don't care about item level or prior experience. We want quality players to learn, grow, and progress with. We currently have a very strong core of raiders. As we get more and more raiders into heroic it will provide competition for our core 20 spots for mythic. No one is safe in those spots, as we will bring our strongest 20 for mythic.
      CURRENT NEED:
      IMMEDIATE POSITION FOR HOLY PRIEST
      ALL DPS CLASSES (prefer any hybrid class with strong healing OS)
      ALL EXCEPTIONAL PLAYERS
      EXPECTATIONS:
      We expect all raiders to come to raids prepared. This means: 
      - Having the correct gems/enchants (200 gems)
      - Class knowledge
      - Raid preparation. 
      We only raid 8 hours a week, so it is imperative that we don't waste time.All underpreforming players, regardless of rank and class, will be benched until performance can be brought up to par for the current content. We are not interested in carrying anyone, and if you cannot perform raid mechanics, then we are not the guild for you. Cauldrons and food will be provided by the guild bank when available. Everyone in the guild is taken care of, and this is done primarily through donation by our members. Our guild is a small community and we all pitch in to get things done.
      LOOT SYSTEM:
      As a guild we opt to run loot through a loot council that is run by the officers. Loot is distributed in a way that most benefits the raid team in terms of progression. Distributing loot factors are performance/attendance/role/rank (I.E. Trials are typically lower on loot priority. (Higher rank takes priority over trial) Loot is always dished out in a way that is most beneficial to the guild as a whole, and is a completely transparent process to avoid drama. We use the add-on RCLootCouncil for ease of distribution.
      PRIMARY CONTACT:
      Raid Leader - Dêv (CrispyD#1823)
      Ranged DPS Officer - Pokebrid (Poke#12567)
      Lootmaster/Co-GM - Beanboss (funny story :P )
      Anyone listed can answer any further questions you may have pertaining to the guild as well as conduct your interview in our guild discord.

      Safety not Guaranteed is an English speaking Alliance raiding guild on Emerald Dream. We raid 3 times a week and are mainly focused on mythic raiding.
      Current Progress:
      7/7M, 3/3M, 10/10M, 7/9M ToS, 4/11M Antorus
      Recruitment:
      We are currently recruiting the following classes to progress with us through Antorus:
      Melee DPS: DH
      Ranged DPS: Mage, Warlock, Druid, Priest
      Our raiding schedule is:
      - Thursday: 20.00 - 23.00 (server time)
      - Monday: 20.00 - 23.00 (server time)
      - Tuesday: 20.00 - 23.00 (server time)
      Apply here: http://safetynotguaranteed.guildlaunch.com/
      Even if we are not actively recruiting your class, we will consider any exceptional applications.
      About us:
      Safety not Guaranteed (SnG) was initially formed on horde side by a small group of friends in early MoP, raiding 10man heroic. Later during the expansion we faction changed to Alliance and expanded our roster to a 20man mythic team, where we cleared SoO mythic as a guild. Many of us have been playing together since as early as WotLK, and have friendships with each other that extend outside the game as well.
      Our goal ever since the guild was formed has been to progress through content at a steady pace, without hardcore hours, while having a good time together. We aim to clear each tier before the next one is released. In WoD we cleared 7/7M, 10/10M, 13/13M when relevant, and have cleared each tier so far in Legion obtaining most mythic cutting edge achievements, and plan to continue doing so.
      What we offer:
      A structured mythic raiding team and raiding times. We start invites 19:45 and begin to clear trash so we can have the first pulls at 20:00 A fair rotation and loot distribution via loot council. We keep spreadsheets! A steady guild with a good community and good guild atmosphere. You may encounter some trolling during your stay. A focused attitude during progression, and relaxed attitude during farm content. We like to chat and have fun, but focus during difficult content. A desire to raid. We often run an extra raid day on the 1st week of a new raid tier. This is 100% optional, but most people are excited to get into a new instance. Additionally we often run some sort of alt raids on fridays (100% optional), and do a lot of mythic+ content within the guild.
      What we want from you:
      High attendance. We expect a minimum of 80% attendance, though most of our raiders have near to 100%. We run a small roster to minimize rotation, and want to be able to rely on you. Commitment. We don't want someone who is looking to join, get geared and then leave. We have a 2-3 week trial period during which we will control gearing while we get to know you. Honesty. If you're having problems within the guild, or have real life issues, we'd like to hear rather than you just disappearing. Talk to us. Be prepared! This means reading up on new fights, having consumables (flask, pots, food, runes), gemming and enchanting properly, and being on time! Communication. We want you to know how to communicate both verbally and in writing. We use TeamSpeak for communicating in raids, though we also have a guild discord! Raiding awareness. We want you to not stand in fire, unless it's required... Progression oriented attitude. Everyone makes mistakes, but learning is part of progression, so we value people who continue to improve over time. Understanding. Sometimes, things don't always go smoothly. We may hit a wall on a specific boss for a while, or you may have to sit for someone else during a progression raid. This is part of mythic raiding. We try to treat everyone fairly, and are open to feedback.
      For more information you can add an officer to chat: Joana#2806, Kitty#2896, Noxxus#2229

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 1/11 Mythic, Heroic AOTC Antorus progression.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      We have no immediate needs, but we will always consider exceptional applicants who match our progression goals and ability.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you a deeper dive into the raid team.
