Hi guys,

Long-time rogue here, first-time outlaw. Have been raiding more this expac but often feel like a liability to my semi-casual raiding guild. I took my first steps into heroic NH last night and feel like I'm not pulling my weight as an 893 outlaw. I've looked over my own logs and I think one of my major issues is that I have a tendency to be a little too frantic in terms of executing fight mechanics (for example, our raid group is very melee-heavy and I feel like I should be putting outlaw's mobility to use on Krosus to soak burning pitch, so I'm reflexively grappling to soak backline/kill adds, which reduces the time I spend actually DPSing). I am curious, though, if I'm missing anything major in terms of itemization, uptime, etc. - my ilvl is relatively low compared to my guildies, but my damage should not be this low. If anyone could take a look I'd really appreciate it.

Note: the deaths in this log are 10000% my fault and the result of first-time jitters/heroic mechanics adjusting. pls no laugh

First off, Ghostly Strike will help you on Single Target fights, if you maintain the buff.

Secondly, use Vanish more often - it's a big DPS cooldown, especially because it gives you 6s of 100% crit chance. Use it with your artifact weapon and / or AR for some really nice burst.

Your buff management seems ok, but you might want to have a read through the Roll the Bones thread and brush up on when to reroll etc
