From what I can see at first glance, here are some of your issues

1. Dot uptimes. alway keep Rupture and Garrote on your target. If there are multiple, dot like 3 or 4 and hope for Poison Bomb procs. Some fights, you're on a decent 90+% uptime. I usually manage to float around 97% on both Rupture and Garrote

2. CP wasting. Some fights, you're doing well, on other you waste a lot of CPs. Envenom with 3+ and keep track of Surge of Toxins

3. Maybe I'm wrong on this, or you know something that I do not know, but I can't see why you would ever swap posions mid fight with the AP build.

That said, i feel like half of the bosses in this raid are quite disadvantageous for sins anyways, especially bosses like Skorpyon or Tichondrious with constant adds or target switches.  If your raid really needs the cleave, you should consider playing Outlaw. For me, I can usually rely on our bomb dps to do the job while I tend to focus important adds or nuke the boss. Although I also have gear for the Exsang build and Outlaw in my bags.

Hope I could help you out a little, I don't have a lot of time on my hands. Exams and stuff.

I swapped mid fight since there were adds and i wanted to see if it was better for me to be Deadly rather then Agonizing. I also feel at a massive disadvantage in these fights but i'm still at a really low % compared to other rogues. I'll keep in mind the 3+ Envenoms. Any more help would be great.

This is the sort of thing that makes me really, REALLY wish they would come up with a way to keep relics when you switch them around.

Not sure what your gear is like; certain legendaries and trinkets are more beneficial than others, as are your 2 and 4 set bonuses. A large majority of people going into Nighthold have all of these things, and until you do, your parses will look lower than they otherwise would be.

Additionally, in Normal mode, people will try and cheese damage as much as they can. They'll exploit mechanics and do unnecessary damage to unimportant targets so they parse higher.

In short, none of that matters. What matters is you playing your own character well for your own raid. I absolutely hate the rankings thing for that reason; players look at it like school grades, and when they see themselves at 39th percentile on Trilliax overall they think they're terrible. In reality, the vast majority of Rogues who are entering Nighthold have very high item levels. People in 860 aren't (usually) in there. Your performance for your ilevel is actually pretty good - look at what happens when you change the rankings to look at Sin Rogues from 878-880

Percentiles lie -- a player could be doing 99.97% of the damage that they are capable of doing, but if everybody else has the same gear and is doing 99.99% of damage they're capable of doing, that player will be down in the absolute lowest percentile. They don't show your personal performance, they ONLY show your damage relative to other players

Now, for places you should improve:

  • You should really try and keep your Envenom buff on 100% of the time that Kingsbane is ticking for
  • Ideally, you should be using Envenom at 4-5CPs.
    • Using Mut at 3CP might waste a point or two, but if you're in a spot where you don't NEED to do something else that's just fine - it will have more impact with your set bonuses that way.
    • While Kingsbane is running, this is less important, and you should try and maintain that buff rather than wait for the perfect number of CPs. 
  • Obviously your Bleed uptimes could be improved, but they aren't bad by any means

TL;DR you're doing well, keep it up

      Hello! This is Fox from Velocity. We're a not-so-hardcore MORNING Mythic raiding guild on Sargeras. Currently 1/9M, 9/9H ToS. Last tier we reached 7/10M NH in the two months leading up to ToS. Now we'll be focusing on Mythic ToS progression. A fun fact about us, since were a morning guild we actually got 2 realm 1st's on Heroic. Worldwide our H Goroth kill was 15th, and Demonic Inquisition was 8th (according to wowprogress). Were looking for good and reliable players for our roster, mainly DPS, who can learn the fights quickly and attend our early raid times. 
      [A] <Velocity> 1/9M 9/9H (7/10M) - MORNING raid LFM
      Raid Times: 10am-1pm CST | Tues/Wed/Thurs / Mon(Opt/Alt)[/quote]
       
        Looking for:
      Currently Need
      Ranged - Mage, Ele Sham, Hunter, Warlock, Boomkin
      Melee - Rogue, Ret Pally, Warrior, Demon Hunter
      Would consider
      Healer - Resto Sham, Holy Pal, Disc Priest.
      Tank - Flex Bear
        Requirements: 
      Item Lvl:  915+/-
      Exp:  9/9H (Pref), 8/9H ok
       
      *Specific classes are listed above as preference. However, any class is welcomed! We will consider anyone who is willing to join and can commit to our raid times, we may also make exceptions if you are under the requirements.
       
      Expectations:
      We’re not super hardcore, we like having fun, but we do have high standards; so we expect our raiders to play their class well, come prepared, FOLLOW MECHANICS, have a sense of humor (or not) and adapt quickly. Prior Mythic raiding experience is a plus, though not necessary if you're a fast learner. 
      Due to our morning raid times, we encourage everybody to communicate about attendance via Calendar invites, Discord channels, or through tells with an officer. It’s important to know who will be available week-by-week so we can make arrangements for raid days. This is necessary to avoid setbacks and keep up with progression! We are very understanding when someone needs to post-out. Schedules change, things come up and real life always comes first. All we ask is for a heads up!
        Perks: Feasts, Codex, Spirit Cauldrons, near-unlimited guild repairs, and the occasional gem or enchants. We run alt raids and Mythic+ 15s with each other each week. We're a tight-knit guild, who's always joking around and helping each other out. We also play other games together outside of WoW, like Overwatch, SC2, Heroes, Diablo, Dota2, LoL and whatever else.

      Additional Info: The morning slot is kind of niche, so it’s important we find players who are dedicated and realistic with their schedules.
      Our Officers are veteran players who have experience raiding at high levels, as well as a majority of our core players. We want to uphold a certain level of standard, the point being that we can joke and have fun while getting stuff done.
      If we sound like a good fit, let us know! Leave a reply here, send us a tell on BNET or in game. Or be old school and send an in-game mail! Thanks for reading, and we hope to hear from you soon! =D

      Oi, mates! Let me just briefly introduce me and this guild. My name is Beautymen and I have been playing ever since WoTLK. During this great expansion I was heavily involved into raiding on Quel'Thalas. Ever since I left these days behind the sensation of raiding and progressing has been tickling my sensitive parts. Therefore, when Legion launched I came back to play with my mate Kraishan and we founded Mythic Busters.
       
      What is Mythic Busters?
      Our guild, Mythic Busters, is a friendly bunch of people from all around the world who are looking to get into raiding. Especially, when you have been gone from the game for some time, you might have lost your raiding mojo and find it hard to be re-introduced.
      This guild offers you the chance to start raiding again in Legion through a fun and relaxed way. No hard requirements, just fair and square play. We have several divisions within the guild to cater to different players. For instance, we run Mythic+ to gear up new players and currently we are building progress and farm runs through the newest raids.
       
      What makes raiding different with you guys?
      Good question, me. Well, if I might be so egocentric as to say that first of all: I believe we have created a great atmosphere within our guild. I, as a raid leader, try to entertain the raid group on Discord by keeping our nights social and fun.

      Sounds great. When do you raid?
      Right now we raid on Wednesdays and Sundays from 7:30PM (invites) till about 11:00PM server time. These raids are currently focused on ToS HC progression. On Fridays we also run a normal mode farm for alts/lowerer geared members.
       
      Awesome. Who are you looking for?
      We accept any and every social player who is either experienced or new to raiding. Just be a chill or dude or dudewoman! And of course, ready slash willing to learn.
       
      You sold me at dudewoman! How do I join?
      Feel free to respond underneath this post or whisper me ingame (Beautymen-QuelThalas or Beautyman#2868).

      Hey all,
      most likely something similar has already been asked but still I thought it cant hurt to make my own post.
      Basically I am a Blood DK (https://worldofwarcraft.com/de-de/character/malganis/deathadan) and I am wondering which trinkets I should use.
      Right now I am wearing a Feverish Carapace (Goroth, iLvl 900) and the Reliquary of the Damned (Desolate Host, iLvl 925).
      Yet I recently acquired a Darkmoon Trinket Immortality iLvl 900 and I am unsure of which trinket to replace. Any Ideas?
      I know the Goroth trinket is technically better but I am unsure as the reliquary provides 4k Stam.
       
      any help appreciated
