Arguably the hardest thing to do in WoW, attempting to PvP as a Protection specced character, the classic sword and board style, is an exercise in incredible frustration.
The hugest problems you have is the fact that your damage output is… well, embarrassingly low. You’ll have all these people running around with 200 resilience, and you’ll be like “Why bother? I have, like, 11% crit. I couldn’t critically strike a critter if I tried”
The problem is simple, really. You cannot think to yourself “Ok, how the hell am I going to kill this guy?”.
Ask yourself. Do healers see a hunter running up to them and think, “Holy crap, how am I going to kill this guy?” No, no they don’t. They immediately look around for someone else who CAN kill the hunter, and then help them do it.
Quite bluntly, you cannot think only with yourself. You have to think about how you can interact with those around you to be successful.
