Sub/Assassin dps question

Hello friends.

I want to ask you an advice about sub and assasin dps and rotation.

I read more guides,watched logs and still don't understand why I have bad dps.

For example there are 2 logs from Goroth

Heroic Sub: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/f2nmNPGFtX8wk3vA#fight=1&type=summary&source=41

And 

Mythic Assassin:https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/tvnx1Z2BaQGYjF7f#type=summary&source=16&view=analytical&fight=5

Can anyone tell me my mistakes?

Thank you

A quick glance at the HC log tells me that:

1. Nightblade was not up for 15% of the fight

2. Death from Above accounts for far too little damage and has not been used off cd. You have 5 casts in a 3m10s fight while it has a 25 second cd. DfA is one of the largest burst DPS jumps compared to regular Eviscerates. If you can't mix DFA in your rotation too well, consider dropping it for more favorable talent in that line. Right now it accounts for only 3.27% of your total damage.

Point 1+2 done right would have probably already given you a blue parse instead of a green one.

The rest is down to maximizing burst phases, something that is a bit harder to distill from logs. In addition, not wasting combo points is a big thing, otherwise you'll suffer in Eviscerate overall damage. If I have a good log on my sub (and I'm only 885 here so comparable noob with the spec) I have nearly 50% Eviscerate damage as part of the overall damage done. With your log, I see a relatively high % of Shadowstrikes and Backstabs, a sign that you've been wasting combo points, which means waiting for 35 energy to Eviscerate more often.

If you have downtimes where you're not using a GCD because no energy, work on sources of additional Haste and look closely at your Shadow Dance pacing.

 

I have no experience with Sin so you'll need another 'expert' on that :P

Good analysis, but the Death from Above part is not correct.
Here is a 99 percentile log for comparison:

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pfvXTh7LD2qtn6zw#fight=1&type=damage-done&source=17

 

Here, DFA does only 3.04 % of the total damage. It's only the AoE part of DFA. The Eviscerate part goes into Eviscerate damage. 

I think what hurts most here is not having the legendary bracers. Moreover, the second legendary (Cloak) is one of the worst for single target damage.

The eviscerate damage from DfA is calculated into your eviscerate damage. The DfA damage in logs are only the damage from the AoE component.

      Raiders must come prepared, on time, with flasks, pots, food, and runes. 
      Raiders must know their class and role. 
      Potential raiders must have been gearing for the content.
      Drama Queens and Trolls need not apply. 
      Our raid schedule is:
      Tuesday - Thursday
      8PM - 11PM CST
      We are looking for the following classes/specs, but will consider any good and dedicated players.

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BFA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
