Hi everyone! I am slightly suck on what gear i should be trying to go for right now, and itemization for what i have, and should be wearing, my armory is here :http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Bãttousai/simple. My issue is that i have the legendary cloak and legendary pants so far and according to the guide those are both of the slots for the best tier pieces, is it worth wearing the tier pants over Valeeras Will? i dont have any logs at the moment, but i usually parse around 60% on fights with not much movement, but drops down to 30% on fights with movement and i feel like that is because my gear is not optimized compared to others of my item level, i have been playing rogue for a long time and i fully understand the rotation and am confident that i am doing everything correctly. How much of an item level drop should i allow to get better optimized stats? Thanks! Edit - The gems and weapon ilvl on the armory link is bogus, my weapons are 896 not 925, other than that everything is correct.

Lucky for you I was able to find logs of your fights. I know you didn't ask, but I'm a nice guy like that :P

Improving your use of Vanish will go a long way towards helping your damage. You seem to have the basic mechanics down for the most part, although there are a few fights where your Bleed and Poison uptime drops drastically (you should look at refreshing Bleeds before you run off, and try using Poisoned Knife to keep poison stacks up while you aren't on the boss). For Vanish, you should be using it in your opener and then on cooldown after that, with a 5CP Rupture to break that stealth every time for the 50% damage boost

As for gearing, you should try and pick up the other 4 pieces for your tier, unless you get another legendary to swap out. 940 ilevel is really valuable, especially compared to your raid finder tier pieces, since it's so much extra Agility which is the most important stat for Rogues.

Speaking of stats, you'll want to swap out that Crit gem, and you should pick up a significant amount more Mastery on your gear in general. Use Simcraft to find your stat weights, and bring those stat weights to Pawn to tell you which items are upgrades or not.

An 80 ilevel upgrade (860-940) is almost certainly worth losing your 2set over. Again, you can Sim your character to be sure.

But yes, work around your legendaries. I would replace a legendary with a set bonus pretty much only if the set bonus titanforges really high

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
