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 Starby from Velocity on Sargeras[A]. We're an established guild, that does mythic raiding in the morning/daytime. We're looking to enhance our roster with skilled and reliable players. If you're a mythic raider looking for a fresh start with BFA, and are interested in morning/daytime raiding -- check out Velocity!
      The goal of Velocity is to take down mythic bosses and have fun in the process. We’re searching for like-minded players who are interested in playing at a high level in a laid-back environment. If you can joke around, then focus up when you need to; this is the guild for you. 
      Our main roster is composed of veteran players. Some of us have been playing together for a little over a year. We have a solid core for our dream team – we’re simply looking for a few more to round us out! 
        [A] <Velocity> 3/8M 8/8H

      Raid Times: 10am-1pm CST | Tues/Wed/Thurs 
        Recruitment Needs
      Ranged  – Warlock
      Melee – Rogue, Warrior
      **** Offspecs are a huge plus!!


      Requirements
      Some Mythic raiding experienced. Being relatively active outside of raid is preferred. Able to focus while joking around, and vica versa.


      Attendance
      We're dedicated and ambitious players, so commitment to our raid times is necessary. We’re interested in consistent players who are realistic about their day-to-day schedule. Raiders have to communicate in the event of tardiness or absences. Schedules change, things come up and real life always comes first. All we ask for is a heads up!

      Trial Period
      Demonstrate teamwork, attendance and play over  6 consecutive "raid days" (two weeks), after an agreed upon start date. 


      What you can Expect from us:
      Dedicated leadership, communication, well defined goals, and a sense of community. Apart from raiding we also run M+ with each other every week.  


      What we expect from you:
      Players who can survive and react to mechanics, while putting up big numbers. Many players struggle to do one, we are looking for both. Apart from this, just be a friendly. It might also be a good idea to bring a sense of humor. 
      If we sound like a good fit, let us know! Go ahead and apply online, leave a reply here and/or send us a tell on BNET/Discord. You could also go old school and send in-game mail to Starby-Sargeras or Foxshine-Sargeras!

      Thanks for checking us out and we hope to see you in gchat soon. 😃

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time (CT)
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 7/8H
      iLVL REQUIREMENT: 355 - 360+
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING
      Tank Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back raiders for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out.
      Players wanting just Mythic+ and a casual experience (no raiding) are welcomed!
      Fun guild events are scheduled every Saturday!
      TLDR; we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      - Mythic+ or Casual: Add me on Battle.net or whisper me in-game for an invite.
      - Raiders: Add me on Battle.net and fill out our app.
      Start the app here!

      __________________________________________________<Shiny Happy People>__________________________________________________ We're looking for more Mythic-ready raiders. Check the bottom of the page for recruitment needs and how to apply!
      Who we is:   SHP is comprised of some of the illest killas you done ever seen. We're long-time bessie amigos based on The Maelstrom EU with our WoW experience stretching as far back as Vanilla. We play many different games together but consider WoW our 'main' game. We're former hardcore, balls-to-the-wall Heroic/Mythic raiders now adopting the life of the semi-casual.   For a more in depth look at our history please visit: https://www.guilded.gg/shp/overview/about We strongly recommend you give that a read before applying. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   What we're about:   SHP is all about that primo, high octane gaming experience while having Tons of Funs™. This means we play at a high level and blaze through content at a steady pace all the while plenty of uncensored shit-talking and bants is taking place on voice comms. We pride ourselves in being able to overcome any and all challenges while cracking wise. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   But who are we looking for?   Are you able to follow simple instructions such as 'Don't do that' or 'Don't stand in that shit' or 'Don't drop that big bad AOE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RAID'? Are you able to perform dexterous movements such as sidestepping big fucking purple beams being casted in your direction? Are you able to perform complex mechanics such as pool soaking by standing COMPLETELY still? Do you often look at boss tactic videos and think to yourself 'Man aint nobody got time for any of that nonsense, I'll let the raid leaders spoonfeed me what to do'?   Then you might just be SHP material! If none of the above applies to you but you're ranged DPS and you consistently parse orange on WCLogs then you are definitely SHP material! ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ But what can we offer you?
      SHP can offer you raiding like you've never raided before. I'm talking high level play from highly skilled players proficient in both PvE and PvP. A mindset of continual self-improvement and an eye on a prize at the end of an ever-expanding horizon. Our members also regularly run high Mythic keystones to gear up alts or to hopefully get a sweet sweet Titanforged weapon.
      But no matter how difficult the content, no matter how focused we get, it is always paired with a relaxed environment, sweet tunes from our dedicated music bot and the occasional sing-a-long on our Discord voice comms.
      ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   When do we do what we do?   We raid Wednesdays and Mondays from 20:00 till 23:30. We also have an extra raid day at the start of a new tier on Saturdays which will convert to an optional alt-run after this period. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   Website Discord   Contact: PinkFap#2713 ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   Current recruitment needs: Mostly looking for good ranged DPS of any class and melee of a select few classes to round out our roster.   For our most up-to-date recruitment needs please visit our WoWProgress page.   You can drop an application here. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 4/8M Uldir   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   Ranged DPS:
      High: Warlock
      Medium: Mage, S.Priest, Boomkin
      1 Healer:
      High: MW Monk
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 370. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
