Here are a few of my favorite things in battleground PvP.
If you have 5 people following you to a heavily defended node with, say, 6 opponents, how can you turn the fight to your advantage? Spread them out, distract them, and reduce their ability to focus fire.
In Eye of the Storm, if you have the resilience for it, you can make quite an entrance on a moderately heavily defended base. You should be ahead of the pack a little: hit deterrence, roar of sacrifice, and if needed, master’s call. Run right through the middle of their group, dropping a bunch of traps. They’ll all be focusing on you, but you’re going to be pretty hard to damage with all your cooldowns popped. Ideally, you’ll time this so that your backup shows up to see nothing but healer cloaks and butts :)
I will often make a point of picking up a powerup buff if it’s available, and then trying to run back around some structure to LoS their DPS, and hopefully kite a rogue or warrior back with me. Readiness, a second deterrence and frost trap, and I make my way around to help in the main fight. Remember, though: deterrence is not a pally bubble! You can only avoid resistible or dodgeable attacks, and that doesn’t include certain feral druid or rogue attacks from behind.
If you’re blown off a bridge by an opponent, remember one crucial fact about disengage: your falling damage is calculated based on where you hit disengage, not where you were originally punted from. Aim your butt at some safe landing place, and hit disengage. If you have really low latency and quick fingers, you can hit readiness and get a second disengage off, if you think it will help. I don’t have the latency for this, however I hear it’s a pretty neat trick :)
Is there a melee on the healer? Obviously, CC is best for this, however if you’re fresh out of options, don’t forget that marks hunters can attempt to disarm someone once a minute by applying a scorpid sting then a chimera shot. You can’t trinket out of a disarm!
When you drop a trap, even opponents who can’t see the trap can see you doing the drop animation. Unless you’ve jumped first! I always try to jump when dropping traps, unless I have a good reason not to.
Also categorized under misinformation: if you get handy with your focus macros, you can be targeting and auto-shooting one person, but interrupting, aimed debuffing, tranq dispelling, and chimera disarming another. Confuses the heck out of their healers, and sometimes the ability to focus fire on one target while pestering another can be very handy.
