@ Mike... Well said.I feel like this post is talking right to me. I just started playing the game at christmas, but the kid that encouraged me to try it, quit 2 weeks later. So, I've been playing a couple hours a night with only the occasional assist from other players. I just hit 40 last week, and I have yet to enter a PvP Arena or BG. I've had a bunch of fatal encounters with Alli's and a few ugly duels.Anything anyone can offer in terms of advice would be great.I've actually been told by a few people to just wait until atleast 60 to start worrying about it. Should I?

I would recommend not doing PvP in the Battlegrounds until you hit level 47. The BGs are "grouped" in increments of 10 levels, so the people who are at the "top" of the increment would, in your case, be lvl 49. The reason I recommend waiting until at least lvl 47 is because otherwise you might as well be running around with a big "target" painted on your head. However, my advice is not to wait till 60. I love the lvl 49 BGs, and also the lvl 50-59 bracket. There are less twinks there, making the average player more or less geared as you will most likely be. Further, the end game PvP (lvl 70 bracket atm) is so incredible gear dependant that it frequently isn't fun anymore unless you have at least season 2 arena gear. So wait a few levels till you're 47 or so, then have a go at it. Not much to lose, but a lot of fun to be (potentially) had! Good luck!

@ arnoldI don't know that bg's are all that gear dependant. I'm @ about half entry kara pve gear, half s1 pvp gear on my hunter, and I take down whoever i want to.occasionally i'll have problems with warriors, but only if they're skilled. skill > gear any day. a player with a *little* less skill and *much* greater gear will probably win. but a skilled player can pvp well.

Good stuff! I might give it a try this weekend if I can get 47-48. Thank you very much.
