What makebooms says. It greatly depends on your class and how you play the BG!I played a WSG yesterday that had two lvl 11 enemy mages that seemed to manage to sheep our team half the time.I can add some low level warlock tips here:Fear! Use your Fear or Howl of Terror to get enemies off of the flag carrier (or any other player) or send the enemies' flagroom in a fear frenzy when you enter with your team to pick up the flag. Keep in mind that fear suffers from diminishing returns, which means that on one target the duration of your fear will be shorter each consecutive time you cast, and the target will become resistant to them after casting fear on them three times.Use Curse of Exhaustion to slow down flag carriers so that your teammates can catch up with them and kill them.Use Curse of Weakness to make enemies hit less hard on your teammates and lower their armor by a significant amount so they can be killed faster.If you play with your Succubus out, she can use Seduction which will take her target out for about 15 seconds. If you play with your Felhunter out, you can use him to Devour Magic, which will remove one harmful spell off of you/a teammate or one buff off of an enemy. Felhunters can also Spell Lock, which will silence your target. It is recommended that you keybind these abilities instead of having them on autocast, which will give you a much greater control of who to take out and makes sure your pet has not recently blown the cooldown on those spells when you need them.Also make sure (and this goes for any class) that you can survive as long as possible. Get the highest rank of Lifeblood you can get, bring health pots (mana too if you run OOM fast), maybe you can get gear that gives you health on use. Keybind it. For locks: aside from your regular life draining spells, don't forget to use Death Coil as a lifesaver, and when you have the Siphon Life talent, throw Corruption around as much as possible to get the healing benefits of that.You can also hand out healthstones to other players if you want.These are mostly only CC things, but as a low level warlock you can also do a LOT of damage just throwing your DoTs around helping out other players killing stuff faster. I often enter the BGs when my locks are at x2 or x3 level, and I still regularly find myself somewhere at the top of the lists. Not useless at all! :)
