First of all, you don't come across anything that gives you an opportunity to gather 5 CP at least until lvl 20. If you want to finish mobs off quickly, learn at how many CP you can smack'em down and kill them. Eviscerate is cheap and deadly. Learn to use it. A good way to stay in control of your fights at the early levels is to use your preferred opener (Backstab from stealth works nicely if you've found a good dagger) and wait until you have full Energy again. Pop a Gouge and jump in behind your target. Look at that, another opportunity for a backstab! If you have an addon that displays the timer on your stun, you can time your backstab perfectly. Whoopa, dead target. This does require that you have a dagger, though. At lvl 10, you can get a decent one with your class-quest. Another skill you'll thank me for later is to learn to time your opener to your energy ticks. Get an addon that displays it (Pitbull unitframes does by default, but there are others out there). Why? Energy ticks back by 20 every 2 seconds, right? Here's the deal, it keeps on doing this even when you are at full Energy. Thus, if you time your opener so that you engage your enemy just before a tick, you will regain 20 Energy almost instantly, and be prepared for that finishing move so much faster. Two seconds may not sound like a lot but believe me, when you don't have the Energy for a move, two seconds is a lifetime. Especially in PvP.
