BG's

I'm gonna share some of my tips / bits of advice for how to BG proficiently.

Positioning:
     While you are a Warlock that can tank a good deal of damage, it's generally far better for you to try & stand towards the back of battles, out of range of melee, to allow you to consistently nuke people down.  Also, always be aware of your surroundings & nearby enemies.  Throughout battles, you need to regularly check if you can better position yourself to better adapt to how your enemies have moved.

Be Smart: 
     If you & some of your teammates are trying to kill someone, but they keep getting heals, don't be a derp & keep spamming your nukes on the guy; Fear the healer.  If you see one of your teammates getting opened up on by a Rogue, Fear them to help your teammate out.  Constantly look out for people needing peels, a quick Fear or Shadowfury can change the momentum in your favor.

Defend & Call Out Incs:
     This speaks for itself, if you cap a node, be prepared to defend it.  If you're with 2-3 other people at your node & you see someone call out in BG chat that there are a few incoming to Farm when you're at LM, be sure to go help them out as they likely won't be attacking LM soon & you'll be able to spare a person or 2.  If you see people coming towards your node, call out in BG chat so you can get some help as soon as possible, don't be a hero & cost your team a node.

Fight On Nodes:
     Don't waste your time dismounting to kill someone out in the middle of a road, if you aren't attacked first of course.  It's more important to go attack a node & potentially secure the game for your team.  On the subject of that, call out if you notice there are only 1-2 people defending an enemy node, state that they are vulnerable to a quick assault of 3 or so of you guys.

Group Up:
     You will get a lot more accomplished with 1-2 other people with you.  I usually serve as a 'floater' of sorts, traveling between nodes with a few others to respond to incs that were called out.  Also, this saves you from being killed by some Rogue in a CS -> KS while mounted, which means no Soul Link for you!

Tada!  You are now considered top tier BG Hero material, congratulations.

  26. Wow, this is actually some excellent strategy. I'm not very proficient at strategy games, so I'll be taking this to heart. Oh and by the way, I've decided to follow your blog. I like it quite a bit. :D

    I have a blog as well, which you can follow if you're interested. It's the life story of a badass, modern Pecos-Bill-type character told in daily vignettes. I'm looking for actual readers, rather than just clickers/supporters, so if anyone's interested, feel free to take a look. =)
