Anyway, I thought what the heck, I'll log in and take my priest into BGs. Now, I've only ever done PVP on my druid (ran WSG a handful of times, really nothing spectacular), and to put it bluntly, she sucks. She's my raid-spec player, full resto, and you can imagine how well she does: awful. Just awful.
Now, if I was gonna do it, I was gonna do it whole hog so I took my pure shadowspec priest off to a trainer to respec. She's now specced as a "PVP face melter", and holy crap. Holy hot damn crap.
I can take out warriors. I can take out warlocks, and rogues (unless they get the jump on me), and mages. I can kill a hunter and his pet before he can barely touch me. And this is after one night of goofing around for a few hours. Once I really learn how to maximize my PVP skills, it's soooo gonna rock. The first AB match I did where I concentrated on actual kills, I came in fourth in killing blows and honour kills. FOURTH!
I've just figured out how I'm going to kit out my little non-raiding priest; and I think I might just have become a PvP addict.
