    PVP:

    I've had a couple people accuse me of hacking over the last couple of weeks (because I've won some 3v1's, etc) and other people who have asked me what build and macros I use. I'm linking that information here for them. Build comes down to comfort and preference. I'm not claiming that this build is the best, it's just the most comfortable for me and it's my personal preference (melee). On top of that, I've been playing this build (or something very very close to it) for over a year now, so I have a lot of experience with it, which factors in to my comfort level.
    This build provides excellent sustained and burst, melee and ranged, non-physical damage. It has good survivability, especially when combined with Cleanse Soul and pots. It has good mobility (1 gap closer, 1 blink, and a sprint). The CC is meh, but it's better than nothing. I use Planebound Resilience, Fell Blades and Hellfire Blades as my self buffs and use whetstones, insoles, poison coating, powersurge and Blood Thirsty (guild buff).
    It is a very good WARFRONT build that synergizes well with healers but does excellent on it's own as well. Again, my preference and opinion here. Take or it or leave it, it's ok with me.

    The build:

    Two Macros:

    Builder:
    #show Dusk Strike
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Reprisal
    cast Dusk Strike
    cast Fiery Chains
    cast Twilight Force

    Finisher:
    #show Scourge of Darkness
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Scourge of Darkness
    cast Blazing Strike
    cast Flame Thrust

    I'm sure I forgot to mention something so ask if you have any questions.

    Looks pretty solid, I can see this being a ton of dps in a pvp setting.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    You can win 3 v 1's as like... marksman...

    Kinda boils down to how well you know your stuff and how well they know theirs.

    Full consumables always helps. Boggles my mind when I see the same people queue in WFs with me for hours on end without using anything.

    I mean, its not like you have anything to do with that favor at 60
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~

    not a fan of the build, but i really want to thank you for mentioning fiery chains.

    most people do not realize how good fiery chain is / how much potential it has when added into your builds.

    there is a reason why you won a 3vs1 fight, one of them could have been due to fiery chains bonus ;)

    Looks like a good spec, the first thing i noticed though is that you didnt take Lingering Flame?

    I know Fiery Spike isnt great dmg in pvp, but i find that a free combo point every finisher is far better than say, the minimal dmg that Ignited Weapons gives you.

    I would also think that dropping 2 points in BD and putting 2 in NB would be far more beneficial, running Ebon and Smoldering Blades as your enchants, gaining 9% dmg from NB and losing 4% from BD.
