I didn't PvP on my holy priest until I'd been level 70 for a while, so I had a lot of catching up to do. I did BGs quite a lot, mostly AV, and kept steadily upgrading my PvP gear (belt/boots/bracers) whenever I had the chance. One thing that helps is keeping track of what armor/weapon pieces would benefit most from an upgrade... make a list, keep your priorities straight, and don't just grab the shoulders 'cuz they "look cool".I also got lucky with a few nice +resil drops in instances.Once I had a little +sta/resil gear, I started doing 3v3 and 5v5 arenas with guildies. We were awful, but the points started rolling in. Now I have ~10k health and 365 resilience, and I can survive much much longer than I used to.Take a look at Arenajunkies.com for great discussions on your class, too. I learned a lot from those guys.

About the recommendation to upgrade your items so that you are constantly getting the most bang for you buck, i.e. the biggest upgrades...that's definitely what I recommend for hard core players who are aiming to climb the ranks quickly. However, for most players, who are simply looking to have a good time, try this approach. Buy the cheapest available upgrades as quickly as you can. What this does is make the process more fun, even though you may end up needing more points in the end because you upgrade something twice. For example, you may want the S3 arena chest armor, but that's a ton of arena points which are hard to get quickly. Instead, farm honor points and buy the S1 arena chest. Once you have that S1 chest you'll find that farming arena points is easier and more fun because you have the resilience that you need to compete. In the end you buy two arena chest pieces instead of just one, but hey, that's how the more seasoned players did it in the first place.
