I have a bit of an esoteric question that I hope won't be construed as laziness, as if there's an answer out there already, I haven't missed it for lack of trying.
How does one PvP as a Deathknight?
That's a bit broad obviously. I see, though, a lot of people casually assuming that one should know whether or not to, for example, chains of ice or death grip someone to peel them at a particular point. I am however, a complete infant in pvp, just reaching the point where I could pretend I know what I'm doing, but I imagine my limited success is due to the powerful nature of DK/Holy rather than any skill.
Is there an in depth guide of this nature anywhere, or would anyone be willing to discuss what they use as general strategy, or is this truly something one must puzzle out through hours of play? I'm not really looking for arena centric advice on particular matchups (though god knows I could use that as well, I know not to expect a guidebook on beating every possible team), but simplistic suggestions for a PvP "rotation". I don't even know whether I should plague strike half the time, or whether I should deathcoil or save RP for a gargoyle in 10 seconds, etc.
I think the main thing to understand is that you don't rely on diseases at all unless your after a druid. Use plague strike if you have the Desecration talent, use icy touch if you have improved icy touch/black ice, otherwise spam CoI. Learning to properly CC players off your teammates is probably the best skill to master. There's a few good videos out there to watch. If your really into arenas and wish to rank high, spec whatever is the most unbalanced at the moment and roll faces. Currently most of the DK's in arena put 20points into frost and abuse the shit out of icy touch. Dumb gimmick that many 'good' DK's roll with then post about how good they are:
Okey, so you see blood as a good spec for pvp. My Q is, have you played seriusly arenas in an high ranked team? If the answer is NO, you dont know what you are talking about.
