It's pretty discouraging starting out PVP but you just have to keep your head up. It gets better. I'm currently a mage (not the number one PVP class by a long shot) in all PVE blues (skew'd toward stamina) and I do alright now.Travel in packs (especially if you are a mage) and assist kills. Look for opportunities like catching a fleeing player with half a health bar or surprise attacks.He didn't say it but the reason you get the insignia first is you are going to need an extra way out of snares otherwise you'll always get schooled. Conversely, think ahead. Count on someone breaking your first snare and be ready to counter.And like he said, gear won't do it all for you. Even in my crappy gear I still take down guys decked out in S2 solo. It's not that I'm the greatest it's just, as there will always be someone better than you, there will always be someone worse, too.Oh, yeah. Also, find the best macros for your class. They are a must in PVP. If you are a clicker, get used to doing everything on the keyboard. I find using my mouse hand on the number pad is best. I can still move while having easy access to 12 or so spells.Now if someone could tell me a good way for a very casual player to meet other very casuals to lose in arenas with them, I'd be in business.

With your mouse hand on the...did you just seriously advocate keyboard turning for PvP? Or is your mouse really close to your keyboard and you just hit the numpad with your thumb? You have confused me.

How do you do it? I move/turn with my keyboard, look with my mouse and let go of the mouse when I want to use the number pad.I'm sure there's a better way and I'm interested in learning.

Pressing the right mouse button and moving your mouse will turn you faster than you can do with the keyboard. Very important in PvP!Pressing both buttons will make you run, too, you only need the keyboard for strafing and moving backwards.
