HFC HC Assassination DPS help

Heya,

Just looking for some general advice as to what I and the other rogue in our guild may be doing wrong as assassination in HFC

Logs from  last raid: http://bit.ly/1UKq4sx
(Can pretty much disregard shadow-lord for my part, died to shakram. No instant poison at start, just generally terrible)
I do notice myself, or noticed that cooldown alignment was pretty terrible on socrethar due to the fact I wasted a lot of time on them as a dominator spawned, generally not my best raid, but still.

My armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/argent-dawn/Ar%C3%ACn/simple

(Disregard the combat spec, usually assassination)

Usually try to play as:

Opener: Mutilate to 5+ combo points -> Rupture->Shadow Reflecion/Vendetta ->Mutilate to 5 combo points -> Envenom->Vanish->Mutilate->Preparation->Vanish->Mutilate

After that keep up normal rotation as:

Refresh rupture at 7> seconds left on it with 5 combo points
Envenom at 5 combo points and after pooling some energy.
Swap to dispatch at 35% and try to fit in blindslide procs during envenom buff.

With secondary targets that are shot lived tend to just mutilate and envenom if I get enough combo points, otherwise rupture the secondary target up as well whilst keeping rupture rolling on boss, along with deadly poison.

(This is pretty much what I have told our other rogue in the guild to do as well, gear is almost equal, she misses 4 set however).

Either way feel like my dps is lacking, especially compared to the paladin in our raid group. Any advice would help :)

Using Vendetta glyph is a DPS increase.

 

Few things I could pinpoint quick on your logs:

 

Late Preparation usage (sometimes no usage);

Vanish should be used every 1 min, saved by some mechanic or upcoming burst in a short period of time;

 

And I'm sleepy. Tomorrow I check more (took 40 mins to write this much, hooray sleep).

Fair enough. Will try to keep a better track of usage of vanish/preparation and more so on cooldown usage. Should have some logs to post by tomorrow from a heroic run :) Thanks for the help!

      I am following the rotation given in the class page on here. My parses are terrible for my ilvl and I don't understand what i am doing wrong and why my dps isn't higher. i havent been using firestarter because i feel like the boss is only above 90% for 5 seconds. Been using RoP for most fights because i have T21 4p.

      Hiya!
      Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong with my frostmage, since it feels like I'm underperforming compared to other guys with the same ilvl.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pMdCBwHG6mQb712z This is a normal pug run I did yesterday.
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/blastgasm link to my armory.
       
      Edit: Will add a bit more info now since I was in a hurry when i wrote this.
       
      I know i dont have the optimal legendaries. Only got 2 to drop on my mage. The gloves and the waist. During this normal run i probably had the wrong talent setup for some fights (arctic gale on tichondrius etc.). The question is, what can i improve? Do i need to get Better legendaries or is My rotation slightly off?

      Hi guys! 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/chamber-of-aspects/erthol   So this is my mistweaver monk here. Now I have actually managed to start raiding and do normals every week. However I have a huuuuge problem, specifically that my hps is really, really low. A good example I think would be this Aggramar fight: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jKcxbLXrQ9pknDva#fight=27&type=healing   You can see how the other monk had much higher hps than me. I do understand my leggos are subpar, but meh, bad luck one could say. What I don't understand is what I'm doing wrong. I try to use renewing mist on cd, use Vivify. I know I haven't used Effuse too much, but that's because I was trying out fistweawing. Anyways, all my other logs are basically the same. I have way too high overhealing as well. Any help would be great, because I'm lost, I love the monk, I love the style, but somehow can't get it to work as I would like it to. Please help meeeeee! Thanks for the feedback.

      Anybody got any experience/tips or tactics they use as a fire mage ( or other specs that have any knowledge that may be able to apply in generality )
