Idk, i just don't think the current talent design will ever work for PvP. They want every class to have a ton of "cool and fun" talents, wich pretty much meant copy/pasting abilities from other classes with a little twist to it or giving DKs 2 different deathgrips or Warrior 3 different charges and an aoe kidney shot on a 20 second cd...etc, so every classes have an absurd amount of CCs and of everything really..

I don't see how they can clean up that mess until they bite the bullet and start making abilities working differently in both pve and pvp.

Blizzard thinks like this:
X class/spec sucks, so we'll balance it by giving it the tools that the other good specs/classes have
This leads to homogenization and makes the game less fun overall. 90% of the time, they should be thinking like this
x class/spec sucks, so we should improve the unique tools that is already has
Expect bias in posts because
Wotlk is the best thing since sliced bread

I remember when going from TBC to Wotlk and thinking how skill in pvp took a nose dive, "there's no way this can get any worse".

BOY WAS I WRONG.

Legendary Daggers are definitely a no, they don't have any other Legendaries either.

Vial, Cunning etc we can just keep dreaming about :l

Not true, the longer I stay not-playing the more I realize how shit the game is right now.

When I actually played every day it seemed "ok" but now that I have been on a break pretty much since a week before the MMR reset, I just can't be arsed playing anymore.

My first arena experience was zoning my priest into arena, getting killed by dk with DnD aoe random stun, pet stun into strangulate, after that I was killed by few hunter pets behind a pillar, some time later being killed in cheap shot by rogue mage with lighting capacitors, etc.

It was more retarded than the best geared harp rogues or melee cleaves in TBC.

Yes, skill cap increased in later seasons, but s5 was utterly stupid beyond words.

I really enjoy pvp actually - it's bit frustrating sometimes but once you get bit used to the current state it's all fine.
My advice is to play comp you enjoy and perform best with. For me it's pretty much Thugcleave(with priest currently). If you coordinate good and manage to predict enemy def/burst cds you can really lock them down and score a perfect kill in opener/switch.

I don't think you miss it because it was  way more annoying and worse than shockwave or any other stun. And rogue used mace stun up to s2 after than they didn't go combat.
