Best spell dps rotation? Well, PVP is situational, however I can try and list prioroties, if that helps?
Keep dots up:
Start with UA (specially if there is a enemy dispeller)
Corruption
Curse of the Elements/tongues/weakness/exhaustion
Bane of Agony/doom - I tend to stick to Agony.
Next is haunt, use this on cooldown as mentioned in the post.
Now I would do Drain Life's. 3 Ticks, 3 possible nightfall procs, 3 possible crits. If you get a Night Fall proc, you should use this right away, so you do not get night fall over the old night fall (getting 1 instead of 2). Other than that, keep doing something every global, if I am being trained by say enhance feraldruid ( 2 interrupts) I tend to corruption/bane of agony all targets and pets to get that siphon heal and possible procs. Any free globals should be spend dotting with instant dots on targets or pets. As mentioned in the guide use soul swap on cooldown; 2 fully dotted targets = x2 more damage = x2 more pressure.
But to be honest there are no DPS rotation in wow arena, it is simply to situational, if you stand there going through a rotation, refusing to peel unless said rotation is complete, you wont get anywhere, however I hope this "prioroties" list helps.

I made a thread in the Glad section regarding focus/dot priorities.

It's a very complicated question/situation but maybe you can help mate.

Basically, my team mates say i need to dot anything and everything, regardless of who we are CC'ing. I keep telling them that if we are going for a kill and need to CC the healer, the CC is just going to break if my dots are on him.

I was thinking, using a base strat like dotting up the 2 DPS asap, then focusing the healer and keep him out of the game by fearing/silencing whilst maintaining dots on the 2 DPS/pets.

What ya think?

I agree with you,but if there is a DRed fear, you might aswell dot up the healer with corruption/agony, if you have free globals.

As for the requests I can write page up and page down about warlocks, or arena PVP in general, but I want it to be as relevant as possible, hence if you have any requests I am more than happy to try and help! (post them here or message me)

Maybe I did something wrong in the soulswap fix, but I hope someone else tried and can confirm wether it works or not, if it doesnt I will remove it as said in thread. We can always hope for a fix, but it is blizzard we're talking about here :)

I've seen two guides so far that focus on the very basics of playing a warlock, it would be much more enjoyable if it went a bit deeper than that.
and this is more a pvp-guide in general than one for warlocks.

Not flaming, but half the content has been taken from this website :P

I have written this from scratch, things that I took off this website I have given propper credits to its owner. Feel free to prove me wrong, though.
