I just started playing WoW again after a 2-year absence. Back then, my main was a Warlock and really enjoyed doing PVP.
When I started back up a couple weeks ago, I started a new character, a Monk. After leveling a bit, I thought it would be fun to do some random BGs, just to kill some time and have a good time (currently a level 75).
What I discovered, is that I find it extremely difficult to PVP as a melee class (WW Monk here), given that for years I only PVP'd as a caster (Warlock) and had never before tried melee PVP. Mainly, I've found it very difficult "staying on top" of the opponent so that I'm within range, while at the same time making sure my character is facing the right direction.
Now, I've only been trying to PVP for a few days (I'd say roughly 20-30 BGs), so I know it'll take some getting used to, but is there any advice/tips/suggestions for learning to PVP as a melee class?
Even better, are there any tutorial videos out there that help people become better at playing a melee class, when they've been used to playing as a caster the whole time? What I've found very hard is the combination of staying close to the opponent, while facing him, and while hitting buttons to attack him, all at the same time. As a caster, I didn't really need to "move" and could stay in range, so as a melee, it's quite hard.
Is there a "trick" to being able to effectively PVP as melee, especially for someone so used to playing as a caster? (The question isn't specific to Monks, but more generally, PVPing as melee).
[Just to note, in case it helps with suggestions/tips, all of my special attacks are key-bound (i.e., I'm not a clicker). The one thing I don't do (or at least do very well), is strafe].
