Hi everyone

So I'm mostly a PvE player but I've been wanting to try my hand at PvP/Battlegrounds for a while and now since most of the things to do are dailies I'm gonna give it a go. The thing is I've never done PvP or many battlegrounds, the only one I've ever done is Warsong Gulch when I was level 30ish on my hunter.

So I got a few questions:

  • Does PvP Power/Resilience makes much of a difference? I got the full 463 PvP gear just in case.
  • Any good resources about battlegrounds and arenas?
  • I mostly play DK, what spes performs better in PvP? I assume is either Frost or Blood.
Thanks for your time!

PvP Power/ Resilience are AMAZING in Bg's, because it will drastically improve your damage output/mitigation. If you have a chance to get more Pvp power/resil, then go for it!

As for DK spec, that depends on what you want to be doing, and what your playstyle is.

If you want to be a flag carrier, or you just want to stay alive because it's your first time, then go with blood; but if you want to go and put out some raw damage, then Frost is the way to go.

Comment with any other questions. :)

Thanks for the tips

Right now I've been focusing on learning the BGs and when to defend/attack. So far its been going great and I have a couple of Dreadful pieces and I'm saving up for the next tier purchased with Conquest points.

People have been telling me that it's better to gem with resilience as a DK since we're kinda squishy. Is Resil better than Power?

I chose frost, I used to play frost early on and then switched to UH so I know the basic rotation. Why is blood better as a flag carrier?

      My game time expired about 1-1,5 months before patch 7.1.5 appeared in wow.
      I focus only on pvp and I play shaman ele. Is it worth to come back to wow? Can you guys tell in what condition pvp is right now (2s,3s,bg's / wpvp)? Comments on blizzard forum don't encourage me to return.

      Undaunted Gaming League is a family based guild, that means most of us have families and careers and are unable to play WoW at all times, that is recruiting players to band together for core teams. We would like to form teams for arena, RBG's, Daily Mythic dungeons, raid progression, gold making, and even battle pets. Even if you are a casual player that is looking to socialize, or want a team to work together on professions, we would like to help you help us. 
      http://undauntedgamingleague.enjin.com/home is our guild site, feel free to stop by to fill out an application and email a guild member for an invite. If you would like additional information, please message a player in game or myself directly darkmograine#1675

      Hi!
      Die Gilde <inevitable> startet einen Neuanfang und ihr könnt an einem lang ersehnten Projekt mitwirken! Bei uns handelt es sich um eine Casual-Gilde die dennoch eine hohe Motivation aufbringt, bei einer minimalen Raidzeit progress-orientiert zu raiden.
      Unsere Mitglieder können mit einer einschlägiger & langjährigen PvE und/oder PvP Erfahrung überzeugen, außerdem könnt ihr euch auf eine freundliche Atmosphäre einstellen.
      Bei uns seid ihr richtig, wenn ihr nach lockeren Strukturen, einem progress orientierten Casual-Raid und einer Gilde die auch außerhalb der fixen Termine viel unternimmt, sucht.
      Unsere Mythic-Raids finden jeweils Mittwochs 19-22 Uhr & Sonntags 19-22 Uhr mit der Möglichkeit zur Verlängerung des Raids um max. 1 Stunde, falls der Progress dies erfordert] statt.
      Momentan rekrutieren wir:

      1x Warlock
      1x Resto Druid
      1x Shadow Priest
      Außerdem freuen wir uns über alle Bewerbungen von außerordentlichen Spielern, unabhängig der gespielten Klasse!
      Wichtige Informationen:
      Bisher: 4/7 Mythic Emerald Nightmare, 2/3 ToV HC
      Geplanter Raidkader: zwischen 22-25 Leuten
      Raidleader mit Erfahrung im Top 250 World Guild Ranking [TBC & WOTLK]
      Es wird keine 100% Attendance gefordert aber wäre erwünscht, da der Raidkader  planmäßig, zwecks Förderung des Zusammenhalts und der Atmosphäre möglichst klein gehalten wird
      Viele Aktivitäten außerhalb der Raids (Myth+, PvP/rBG Stamm, andere Games)
      Discord als Forum/Voice und somit auch unsere Kommunikationsplattform
      Falls weitere Fragen bestehen und/oder ihr Interesse habt euch uns anzuschließen solltet Ihr folgende Leute ingame anwhispern:
      Kyokushin-Dethecus
      Spritzgebäck-Dethecus
      Illidanyewest-Dethecus
      Butterbärle-Dethecus
      Bis bald!
