Poison swapping when running Agonizing in M+

I've just started using the Agonizing Poison build and I'm enjoying it, but I'm of course still having the ever-annoying problem of not being able to do much AOE damage.  I decided to try switching to deadly for trash (then back to AP for bosses ofc.), especially in aoe heavy dungeons and it seems to be giving me better results.  I would assume this is due to getting more immediate effects from DP than AP on quick pulls..  Does this make sense?  Or am I just imagining things?

No that's right. AP doesn't actually deal any damage, so DP will give more benefit on trash. 

Trash fights / AoE burst is Sin's biggest weakness though, so if you're in a situation that calls for that, other people or specs will do a better job than you will.

Thanks.  I thought so, I was just hesitant because I believe the guide says to use FoK to apply Agonizing.  The DP swap seems to make more sense though.  Now if I can just get a tank to wait the four seconds for me to switch back when we get to a boss...

Just don't run Agonizing. Run Alacrity, or Exsang if you have to

I guess this could work if you have comms with the tank but most tanks in pugs will forget to wait. I'm probably going to go back into my vers/crit gear and try alacrity or exsang out. Alacrity being for more aoe and I guess exsang being for more ST, could depend on the actual keystone you are running on which you choose maybe? I dont know.. just testing atm

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      So I just got my Rogue to 110 on Monday and plan on raiding soon. But  I am a bit unhappy about Vigor not being an option. Every guide I found put the other two talents above it. I really like playing with Vigor, this might just be because my gear is still kinda bad and messed up(850ish), but it feels a lot smoother with Vigor.
      So I wanted to know why excactly the other two are better and by how much. 
      Edit: Sub

      Hello all rogues in Azeroth. I'm a 915 assasination rogue. Can pull 1,5m burst dps and substain around 700-900k dps during longer fights. 
      Since my question is about relics I don't feel the use of armory and logs to answer my question. 
      My weapon is ilvl 920 and I feel it's falling behind with my raidpartners and I'm thinking of when to switch out what I'm using. Since I'm using two master assasin + boots my vendetta is on around 45 sec CD
      I have: 
      shadow: 905 toxic blade relic.
      Iron: 885 master assasin relic.
      Blood: 900 master assasin relic.

      Should I focus more on ilvl with for example Iron-relic? 
      See you around and remember. If someone scary comes. Vanish, shadowstep, Mutilate
