    Spriest need some pvp advice.

    I am having a little trouble vs melee when my Physic horror is down. when i duel a warrior he keeps me hamstringed the whole time leaving me only room to apply DP and SWP. if i try VT or MB or any casts they get pummeled or shield smashed. if i Fear they pop beserker and what ever room i got away from them, they just charge and hamstring again. i know fade gets me out of it but its very easy to re apply. DK's a find myself dispelling chains so often that i can only get my dots rolling and no MF or MB. and rouges well rouges keep me slowed 24-7 and any time i fear its either CoS or trinket and they sit on me agian. if i do get a fear and fade run kite, i normally get blinded and they catch up again

    Any advice on how to keep distance from then while my physic horror is on Cd. for the most part if all my CD are up i can 1v1 anyone. its surviving when they are down which i am having a huge problem with

    If you're having trouble 1v1 with the most overpowered 1v1 class I think you should just stop PvPing and go back to PvE.

    Ignore him.

    What kind of gear exactly are you wearing? Is it up to part PvP gear? Also these warriors you are going up against, have you noticed what kind of PvP gear they have on?

    Warrior:

    If he is a decent warrior, he will wait to shield slam your VT then go into a blade storm after MS is up and you are locked out. So use psychic horror to get up VT first, and get full DoTs up. Keep your shield up, keep Inner will up, fade everytime you came to kite him.

    Fear when you can, be ready get Vt up again as fast as you can. Warriors are prolly the easiest melee to killl as a spriest.

    DK:

    Most Dk's DG at the begining so fear right from the start and get full DoTs up, when you ahve full DoTs, Silence so he can't cast AMS, which will allow you to MB and get the healing debuff up and put in some more damage. When he cast AMS Shadowfiend to keep damage up and kite him, dispelling chains, keping up shield and dispersing if he is eating into you hard.


    Dk's are the toughest melee against spriest if played correctly.

    Other tips are:
    -DoT up ghoul to prevent the ghoul sacrifice.
    -get abolish disease before he death coils and diseases are undispellable
    -Shackle Gargoyle to void his DPS CD (they hit hard)


    I hope this helps.

    ^ Yeah I mean it somewhat depends even if you're disc or shadow. I find in my disc spec, DK's are the easiest class to destroy and warrior's are the toughest.

    When I go back to the game at launch, I will be doing shadow this time around for PvP

    Still though, hellar, it depends on what gear they have on compared to you. :/ In disc, if I was facing a DK in way better PvP gear then me, I would fall.

    if getting a good cast is really a problem then just send shadowfiend out and spam DP. Keep your shiled up, get a renew up and PoM. i really have no problem with any class in 1v1 and im in the best gear you can get before needing rating (gottat love free 25 arena points). Wait for the blade storm and then use Physic Horror and imo who cares if a warrior sows your movement. you should be in melee range anyways to avoid the charge interrupt. fear whenever its off CD, keep DoTs up and if he does lock your shadow out, bubble and start using healing spells like holy nova renew, PoM or even Holy fire and Smite. Theres still more for you to do. also if you get in a real pinch then just disperse and let your dots heal you up some.

    Fear him, fade, apply VT.

    If he gets rid of his fear, PH him.

    Really, warriors are annoying because using any cast-time spells are difficult. Thankfully you have your trusty DP spam-o-matic (Which is your finger)

    You will oom yourself quickly as shadow mana burning. It is usually better to do damage to make them heal.
