Looking for Pointers for Improving

Hey Gang, would you mind looking at my logs and let me know where I can improve my rotation as an assassination rogue.  I notice that all of my best logs have a significant amount of Poison Bomb and I don't like praying to RNJesus.  I am hoping there are some things I can do to hit top dps.  

Here is my armory. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/emerald-dream/Elodar/simple.  I know my Mastery is low but lately I have had crap luck on drops.  One of the options I have to bring up my Mastery is to drop Insignia of Ravenholdt +Well Flattened Wristguards and change to Denial of Half Giants + an 890 Spellblades Gemmed Signet but Denial is a sub rogue legendary.  This brings my agility to 34248, mastery to 137%, and my crit to 28%.  I tried running this combo with the higher mastery and did not feel like I was doing more dps even though the Sims say I should.  

 

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/dF3qCynDbvGrVAh6#fight=14&type=damage-done&source=186  This is one of my better logs where I think I did most thing correct.  Please look at this and let me know if there is something I am missing.

Don't have time to go through the logs much, but it looks like your Bleed uptimes could be improved. I can go more in depth later.

You should really look into ways to drop Haste. Swap some set pieces around to try and drop the gloves (seriously they're awful), run some M+ to get a replacement piece for them. Your ring and wrists both have a lot of Haste as well, which you should drop for other, better stats. M+ is your friend, look for specific items and farm those runs

Lol, I hate this game.  I have been running mythics and everything I get has haste on it.  I also had 4 seals and used them on heroic Elisand, Guldan, Tich, and Star and all I got was AP and a haste back.  Then I had a legendary drop and it was Valeera's pants and I don't think that is better than the legendary boots and ring I am using.  My luck has definitely gone downhill for the last month.

On the bright side you wont get them on your next legendary drop :) I just got my 9th legendary drop and it's still not the shoulders :')

All you've got to do is try again next reset and hope for some better drops, or farm even more m+

Basically this. Gotta push more - the advantage to actively seeking BiS gear through M+ spam and the like is that you boost your chances of getting a legendary by a massive amount

Alright, I ran some mythics and changed my gear.  Through simming I found my best legendary combo is Dustwalker's and Denial the Sub bracers.  Here is my current build.

Here is a log from my last Star fight.  I feel like I did pretty well on this one.  Can you look at these logs and see if there is much I can work on?  Also, I believe I am doing the standard opener but I am not sure if this is optimal.  I see some other rogues get off to a much higher start than I do.

When running with CoF and the boots, you can realistically expect a 50% uptime on Vendetta, so I think you probably aren't using it on cooldown in some cases

That said, most peoples' openers which spike really high are going to have the legendary shoulders, which gives a HUGE burst out of stealth. You can run some more M+ to boost your chances of being able to use a piece that isn't the legs.

You'll also want to have a look at your stats, and try to ditch some Haste in favour of getting more Mastery and Crit, it'll probably help you a bunch.

Work on getting your bleed uptimes higher as well, although they aren't terrible there's still room for improvement

      So I just got my Rogue to 110 on Monday and plan on raiding soon. But  I am a bit unhappy about Vigor not being an option. Every guide I found put the other two talents above it. I really like playing with Vigor, this might just be because my gear is still kinda bad and messed up(850ish), but it feels a lot smoother with Vigor.
      So I wanted to know why excactly the other two are better and by how much. 
      Edit: Sub

      Hey there, looking for some common mistakes I might be making in my gear or dps rotation that I am just not seeing. You'd think it would be pretty basic but my dps has been all over the place recently. 

      I will be fighting kiljaeden (pretty standard) and have anywhere from 650-850dps average for the fight. It's gotten me kicked a couple times obviously despite being good on mechanics. I've reviewed several guides, made sure I am enchanted and gemmed... cannot figure it out. What am I doing wrong? (Yes low on meters for other fights as well though not always). 

      924 iLevel, wearing legendary belt and chest (dont have tier to wear shoulders and chest)

      67% Mastery (issue?) 
      24% Critical Strike
      29% Haste

      Opener: Blood Fury, Tome (trinket), Crow, Bestial Wrath, Dire Frenzy, KC, AspectotW, Titan's Thunder, CS, KC, DF...

      Repeat KC, CS, And cast DF whenever buff falls off or procs bonus. 

      Talent Build is:
      Cobra
      Frenzy
      Posthaste
      Bestial
      Int
      Crow
      Killer Cobra

      Helps, tips, advice welcome. 

      Are there common mistakes to rotation i might be making even if u dont see it here? Should i be working hard to gear swap? I am at a loss and it is getting frustrating. Thanks

      Hey everyone!
      I'm a long time rogue, looking for a new place to hang out. I'm former cutting edge raider, but for the last year I've been playing more casually due to IRL commitments. What I'm looking for atm is a guild that raids somewere between 21:00-22:00 until 00:00, 2-3 day per week. I look for a guild that is doing mythic raiding.
      I'm atm alliance but I'm willing to transfer server and faction for the right guild, so everything is of interest!
      Thanks, Ohba
      For more info or a chat u can reach me at Ohba#2534
