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

      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.

      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
