Until recently, I really had no interest in pvp. I wouldn't say I hated it, I really had no feeling about it. I stayed away from battlegrounds, unless I had to go into one for a holiday thing, and even then it just wasn't that important. I play casters, my main is a shadow priest. I go squish pretty easily, rather I used to. But now, I think pvp is "ok". I wouldn't say I like it, its not top on my list, but its now something I'm getting better at and do for a change of scene.It started with Tol Barad, doing the non-pvp dailies, sticking around for the battle to be able to possibly do more dailies. I start racking up honor points quickly, so in time I bought all the pvp mounts (i'd been working on the 100 mounts achievement, so these would have been needed anyway). I kept finding myself in the TB queue a few times a day, it was FUN. I started putting my honor points into buying actual gear. I've got all the season 11 pieces, the 10 weapons, a trinket from BH, and the conquest chest. I've just recently started to go after conquest, I don't go out of my way to cap each week, but I do find myself in more random bgs with guildies.Its not my first choice of something to do, but it is a nice change of scene. I'm learning tips from guildies. I used to just jump in the dogpile and cast till I die. Sometimes I still end up doing that. But I've learned to make good use of some of my class abilities, such as mana burn to help get the healers killed or leap of faith to help flag carriers get into the flag room and away from whoever is chasing them. I'm still not "good" at it, but I survive longer than I used to, such that I have time to enjoy it.I'm somewhat looking forward to new bgs and new pvp in mists. I hope there is some kind of thing like Tol Barad, it'll probably be the first place I attempt new expansion pvp. I admit I haven't done much reading up on the topic.
