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 , of course, to take down mythic bosses and to also 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, while others are new friends. We have a solid core for our dream team – we’re simply looking for a few more to round us out! 
        [A] <Velocity> 10/11M, 11/11H – (5/9M 7/10M 7/7M)

      Raid Times: 10am-1pm CST | Tues/Wed/Thurs 
        Recruitment Needs
      Melee – DH, Rogue,  Warrior, Enhance Sham
      Tank – Monk, Bear
      Ranged  – Ele Shammy, Boomkin, Warlock, Hunter
      Healers - Resto Sham, Mistweaver, Paladin -- flex preferred
      **** Offspecs are a huge plus!!


      Requirements
      Some Mythic raiding experienced is preferred. With BFA, we're seeing a lot of players returning after a long hiatus. Any experience raiding old content is a plus. Going forward were giving everyone a chance, old and current players alike, to start over and prove themselves.


      Attendance
      We're dedicated and ambitious players, so commitment to our raid times is necessary. We’re interested in consistent players who are realistic and honest 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
      Three weeks. After an agreed upon start date, 9 consecutive days demonstrating attendance and play. 


      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 also maintaining performance at their role of damage or healing. 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 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!

      <Maniacal Degree> is looking to boost its raid forces (Mythic and Heroic) for the upcoming expansion. We are looking for talented players that can contribute to the success of raid teams of multiple skill levels - particularly those interested in Horde Mythic progression.
      Mythic progression raid team: Tue/Wed/Thurs 6:30-9:00 PM server (Pacific Standard Time)
      Heroic progression raid team: Sun/Mon 6:30-9:00 PM server (Pacific Standard Time)
      MD is a mature, inclusive Horde guild on the Proudmoore-US server, with both social and raiding components to meet all your guild needs! We are always looking for active adult players that want to enjoy a community guild based on the ideal of all-inclusiveness. No matter where you come from and what your opinions are, we hope you find a safe place in game through Maniacal Degree. We have a few rules that we ask guild members follow in order to succeed in the community environment, but other than that, we want you to come in, have fun, and act maniacal!
      We are always looking for skilled players that want to get into raiding at a competent level. Our leadership has set expectations to clear mythic-level content for our more hardcore players as Battle for Azeroth releases, while also cultivating raid teams in a more relaxed environment. 
      What we are looking for specifically in a raid member that is interested in progression:
      •    Players who have raided at a competitive level in current and previous expansions;
      •    Players that are new to raiding but are willing to work hard inside and outside of raid times to “catch up”;
      •    Players with experience should have logs to prove that they have raided previously and can perform in their roles well;
      •    People who would like to get back into raiding, but may not have relevant Legion experience to get into a current raiding guild;
      •    Players that know how to optimize their characters for raiding (stats, upgrades, raid roles, encounter research, consumables, etc.);
      •    Players that can perform multiple roles within the specializations of their character, as needed by raid demands and leadership requests;
      •    Players that are self-starters and can take an active approach in helping raid and guild leadership as needed.
      What we are looking for specifically in a guild member:
      •    Players who are active outside of raid times;
      •    Players who engage with raiding and non-raiding guildmates alike;
      •    Players who understand that Proudmoore-US is the game’s most diverse and inclusive server. The LGBTQ+ community is very active and established here, and guild members must respect and embrace the reputation and environment we cultivate both on the server and within the guild.
      Send me a message (Spaceghoul on Proudmoore-US, IsaacTx#1736) if you are interested in talking about joining our guild and/or our raid teams! Come browse our Discord as well: https://discord.gg/Eps7b2g
