i was fighting a warlock the other night. granted, he had much better gear than i, but even without, he ganked me hard:

1st fight: i didnt even get to hit him
2nd fight: same
3rd fight: i managed to stun him, then died
4th fight: he has now taken off most of his equip and stands barechested in front of Iron Forge. I get to stun him and he goes down by, say 500 hp, then im dead.

I used my BG trinket and i have decursive so i could remove some of his dots.

Im a casual player, so i dont get to pvp that much, but i still win like 50% of the times - depending on what class i fight of course.

the warlocks, however, are ungankable, unbeatable, untouchables...

how do u guys do? if u do it at all...

These days I just avoid them 1v1. Fear + deathcoil + DoT's + pet is the total suck. I have caught a couple by suprise and was able to kill them but it dosent happen very often.

Warlocks are probably the class I'm scared of the most... Shadow Priests come second. Hmm, or was it the other way around, lol.

In my opinion Warlocks are just about the best duelers out there. Not to say best in PvP, just best in 1v1 dueling. Warlocks have enough options to take on any class, but it takes time. Time to farm shards, change pets, recharge their cooldowns, etc. depending on the class they will be fighting. In open world or group they loose a lot of that advantage. But don't take dueling a warlock as an estimation of their PvP skill vs your PvP skill. Real world and BG PvP you can't prepare for everything because you have no idea who exactly you'll be against. Still Warlocks are tough no matter what.
