I play as affliction - 17. A priest as I have it in my mind and my experiance isnt the best choice of a partner but ive seen lock priest combos rocket high (2200+)
You will need serious equipment if you want to survive at arena. 400 res is a joke. Try something like full hatefull equivelant + accesories for a good start. 800+ res is easy obtainedable via badges - honor. Pve gear is great for damage. But arena is damage + survival. You or your priest will be out of order in no time if you get in with pve gear. Even if its top pve with the resiliance you wont be able to crit
I play as affliction and I always was affliction. 51 points in demo is not recomented since you will be no good use vs paladins and you only enjoy 30 seconds of win. Then you are screwed.
Destraction looks like THE pvp spec. Burst, control, more control, greater damage mitigation but I dont have the skill or I dont wanna try it. Im affliction by heart.
As affliction in the arena I always try to dot both targets in this priority Corr Coa on both haunt ua - ua. Ua after corr if dispellers oponents. (Tact is this is that they cant dispell coa but they ll try dispell corruption. if you are lucky theyll dispell ua). CC as posible both targets. Haunt whener out of cd. When i get the oportunity to kill (when life is <25%) I silence healer with my pet or cc him with any way posible and drain soul. A drain soul with dots on is almost a guaranted kill even if the healer starts to heal those 7-8k hurt a lot. Your partner has to help a bit with damage or cc.
Try to use felpuppy. Its resilient to magic attacks and his dispell - silence is a must. Felhunter can dispell paladins stuns both, DKs chains, sheep, fears, ice and many other stuff. And a silence well it is a silence that can make a difference in victory or not.
Vs 2 dps you can also use void. His shield can be a life savier specialy at 3.12. I usually start with a void. If dont see anyone I stay with void and I try to lockate the invisible with consume shadows. Else you can change to felpuppy before the fight starts and dont loose your fel dom.
My glyphs of choice are shadowflame for extra slow cc to get those pesky melee of me, fear for the extra dot protection and UA for faster casts. (Anyone can help here im not that confident about glyphs)
