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

      [H] Salvation (est.2007) is a progression raiding guild on US-Cenarion Circle/Sisters of Elune.
      Objective
      Salvation is actively searching and recruiting players for current heroic content. What we look to do in the short-term is recruit players and gear them in our farm content. Mythic + will be run as well since it serves as another outlet to gearing up. By doing this we prepare them for our long-term goal, Mythic Mode Progression.
      Recruiting for Antorus
      Tanks- Blood Death Knight x1 (be willing to dps as well depending on raid comp) Melee- Rogue x1, Death Knight x1, Ret/Holy Paladin x1 Ranged- Mages x2, Hunter x1-2, Warlock x1-2, Balance Druid x1-2 Healers- Resto/Ele Shaman x1, Holy/Disc Priest x1

      ***Exceptional applicants can feel free to sign up even if we aren't recruiting your class/spec. Outstanding applications will always be considered.
      We are also accepting players that engage in social aspects of the WoW community such as leveling, PvP, questing, dungeon finding, roleplaying and other challenging activites. We provide monthly guild events. For example, the Tournament of Tiny Champions. It’s a pet battle tournament where guildies compete with each other using 3-6 of their mightiest level 25 tiny champions. We are expanding this extremely fun side of Salvation so that everyone can join in on some action and prizes!
      Raiding Schedule
      Our schedule is as follows. We push content three times a week for 3 hours at a time starting at 6:00pm to 9:00pm PST Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Mondays. 
      Our Raiding Requirements
      You must be able to raid all three nights. Be on time for raid. Lateness will not be tolerated. Be able to play the optimal specialization for Legion raid encounters. (this requirement is more towards the pure dps classes and hybrid classes in some special cases) Come prepared with the knowledge of the Legion raid bosses and mechanics. Have Discord app installed and a working microphone to communicate. Discord browser and phone app is also acceptable. (Note: Some of these requirements will change as time goes on.)
      How to Join
      Please sign up on our guild website at:

      Outlawed is currently recruiting for current content and looking to increase our raiding team to progress though Antorus.  We are based on Dreanor and are a Horde guild.
      Outlawed has been together for 12 months plus and consist of a mixture of UK, EU and South Africa players, with English being the main language spoken.  We are a friendly group who would make any player feel welcome. 
      We are currently 4/11 HC Antorus and want to increase the raid team numbers.
      Currently we are  looking for ranged dps players of any spec to join the raid team.  We are also looking for a tank with a dps off spec who can cover for our current tank.  We also would like to recruit a healer again with a dps off spec.  New members would be required to be active during the week for mythic + runs and attending the majority of raids, we understand that real life comes first but require active players to help us progress through content.  All applicants must be of ilevel 940 minimum (this is easy achievable with Argus etc)
      We raid Thursday, Heroic Antorus and continue any left over content on Sunday.  Raid times are 8:00 server time to 11:00 server time on each of the days. 
      If you are interested please message Imryll in game (on every evening after finishing work) or leave your player name/realm/ilevel/spec here and I will get back to you ASAP.
      Many thanks for taking time to read this and hope to be adding some of you to our team.

      About us:
      Gordian Knot is a 20-man semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 70% attendance per month.
      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      Currently :
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot's way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Thursdays. Also, every Friday and sometimes Saturdays too, we're on RBGs killing alliance scums!
      Saturdays are generally left for those RBGs or older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Our current guild progress is 11/11 on Antorus heroic, and we're focusing on getting further Mythic progress. Our aim is to always progress as much as possible but also to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere at the same time!
