    When arguing online I like to use big words. Because by the time they're done googling it, they have forgotten what their point was.

    Well we are at the point of the catchup that you can have your weapons day 1 after hitting 90. Use a friend or pay someone to carry you in 2s. My dk carried my friends lock who had 210k and pretty much nothing on just last week, we went like 35-21 or something like that. Its crazy how easy it is to 2v1 people when the team ignores you and tries to catch the lock who won't leave his mount in LoS. The day he hit 90 he had conq weapons, just find a friend who is decent/good who has gear on a strong DPS and get carried to your weapon.

    No offense but how did you intend to pvp in the first place? Do yolo rbgs for point caps all season? I mean, how do you plan to do anything rated with any seriousness if you don't have anyone to play with? Join a pvp guild or something. I would not even have a wow sub if it weren't for the 5-6 people I play with.

    I have gotten to 1900 rating before from joining groups in trade. Not yolo groups but guild groups/regular running groups, who just need 1 person for their rbgs for that night.

    It's quite possible to get conquest weapons without doing rated PvP content. I've just reached 7250 CP on a second character this season, both entirely through random BGs, CtA, and IoT PvP dailies.

    Sure, this takes a lot of random/CtA BGs, but presumably you want these weapons because you want to PvP with them.

    I hate to be one of "those" people, but.... keep trying. I managed to get in Oqueue's with some griev gear and the rest raiding gear. I didn't even get a weapon until a couple of days ago. You just still have to find ways to be an asset to your team, even if your gear isn't up to par. To get the Griev gear I did have, I farmed random BGs and ran heroics, farming JP and converting them to honor.

    It's a PITA to get started this season, but it can be done

    Assuming you have no PvP gear the best place to actually start imo is by either getting some friends to farm dungeons or queuing as tank and getting the quick queue. This way you will get 120 JP per boss kill, 500 JP = 250 honor and the dungeons take about 10mins to complete. I think all dungeons have at least 3 bosses so you actually get honor pretty quick.

    This way you wont be absolutely owned when you first jump into random bg's or feel like you can't kill anything or thinking damn i just wasted 25-30mins getting trounced!

    Then as other people mentioned its all about reading up, setting keybinds, ui etc.

    Currently doing this for my feral druid got head/gloves/legs/shoulders/chest today, then all the other pieces tomorrow!

    I chose to boost a DK to 90 and it's the most fun I've had in PvP for ages. Still learning the class but found two very helpful guides for unholy and frost and Arena Junkies. They had more than just the standard glyph/talent/stat priority most guides have including the closest thing to a priority system I've found and also had useful macros and comp advice. Gives a great base however almost everything in PvP is situational and you only really learn by playing. As you have experience as a DK (rune system, dot tracking etc.) you'll probably learn pretty quickly, good luck.
