Why do you think a level 15 Sorc should be doing well in PVP?

By the 30s you will be topping most Warzone charts, be patient.

Well I'm not new to the game just the class, and would
Like some tips. After the shadow had his way with me, just felt
Like a total newb playing the game.

Some classes seem to be easier earlier because they get so many abilities. That's not the case for the Sorc. You really don't shine until you get at least spammable force lighting and death field.

This can be true - however, not at level 15.

At level 15 you lack the two talents in Madness that make the hybrid so dangerous. If you put all your points into Madness from level 10, then at level 20 you can grab the talent "Madness" which removes the CD from Force Lightning - this is a huge DPS increase for Sorcerers. Later, again continuing to put all points into Madness, you get to grab the talent Wrath at level 25. This is a proc that comes from Force Lightning (FL) damage ticks and makes Crushing Darkness (or Lightning Strike (LS)) instant - so while spamming FL, watch for Wrath proc’s and hit Crushing Darkness (if CD is on - well CD - you can hit LS or continue to use FL). In fact in 2.0 LS does more damage and may replace CD as the "go to" wrath proc.

You should also by then have Death Field that hits quite hard as an AoE.

In short, at level 15 you lack several tools you will grow to depend on in PvP. When you do get them, they are class-changers.

Yeah, sorcs get pretty kick-*** once they reach madness and death field. I mean, FL with no cooldown. The pvp match i unlocked that i looked like a freaking tesla coil.
