Hi there.I've been playing warlock since the beginning of time, but I've mostly played PvE. However, recently, I have been keen to do some PvP and I've played quite a bit of 2's and 3's with my friend who is a ret pala. I never put out enough damage so I'm seeking a bit of advice.I've been searching for guides but most of them are pre 7.2 so a bit has changed since then, so I am looking for something more up-to-date (and in-depth). Whether it's a video or text-based doesn't matter. Please refer me to good guides if you know of anyBesides that, here is a few questions I'd like to hear your thoughts about (and which is what I'm also searching asnwers for in the guides)Ad 1) Which spec "should" I play. I know that I "should" play whichever is most fun (since our rating sucks) but I hate losing so I would also like to be somewhat competitive. I've been playing affliction so far, but I feel like I die too easy and also I do like 50% of the damage he does? Why do you think that is?Ad 2) Which talents (regular AND pvp) are recommended? I reckon talents will change depending on whether we face melee cleave, shadowplay or whichever combination people play. Suggestions on changes that are match-up dependent is most welcome.
General tips will be hard to give out post by post, but knowing all possible combinations you and your friend plays is a start. Ret palas and Warlocks arent usually paired together in pvp.
Where warlocks usually play more of a control drain playstyle(mainly), rets usually play more of a cleavy high burst damage compositions.
You should be able to pull out a lot of damage comparable to a ret paladin, though this will depend a lot whether you are being trained by opponents and such.
I could go into much more detail, but I do feel like having a discussion would be more efficient time wise, if that is interesting reply to this and we'll figure something out
