Click here for the video: http://www.twitch.tv/volantarism/b/463001249

This video is kinda long and to be honest its really not well made since its just an archived live streaming video. But if you are new to PvP and willing to make some changes to have huge gains these are the things I find most helpful and what I would call "game changers".

I go over keybinds how and why I set mine up. I get philosophical in the video and give you reasons why I set things up the way I do.

I go over the advantage to using max zoom out on your camera for situational awareness and the importance of using your camera a lot so you know what is going on around you.

I go over auto run and how you can use it combined with your camera settings to maximize situational awareness.

I go over setting up hotkeys for marking targets and establishing a kill order with crosshair, star, flame, lightning.

I go over focus targetting settings and the importance of DPS getting on the same target to kill them quickly. This should be established at the beginning of a warzone so DPS knows which targets to kill.

Hope it helps!

It was really cool of you to put that together. I'm sure it will be a big help to new players especially. I've been PVPing a long time and even I picked up a couple tricks in there. Thanks!

Your welcome and I hope it is a big help thats why I made it. When I have more time I am going to remake it so the video is less than 15 minutes with notes to keep me on track. Glad to help and I will be planning on making more videos that I hope are also just as helpful!

Thanks for putting this up. I have been keybinding for a few years but still had the movement keys bound (fwd/strL/strR) and then bound all the keys around them but knew this had some serious limitations.
Rebound last night as per your video and although I am still getting used to the setup it is already apparent that my previous limitations have disappeared. The order you suggest (mirroring the keys to the screen order) makes so much sense I'm suprised I haven't seen this suggested before.

Again thanks - will be trying it out in PvP tonight. I already held my own pretty well so a couple weeksof this and I hope to be doing better than 'holding my own'.

***BUMP****
ALSO check out this 4 minute video that quickly explains how to set up focus targeting options, target of target and its application in PvP: http://www.twitch.tv/volantarism/c/3077804

Targeting is probably 50%++ of PvP.

I'm also looking for other players to do some live streams with me with more PvP tips. If you have ideas or want to be a part of a live stream/archived video for example on min/maxing certain classes and have a good knowledge base for something you have done a lot of research on let me know!

Good guide, thank you!
Watched it and I have a question about dealing with shadows/assassins.

I need to keep them off my back.
Should I use mouse for movement or do you suggest to slow them and press S?
Soloqueue 50 scoundrel, Sóloqueue 50 vanguard, Sólóqueue 46 sage
Soloqueué 37 operative, Foreigner 22 marauder
P.S. No I can't send you a crate of vodka, I know it is sad, but blame your EU post service.

What class are you playing? I would always use your mouse to control your character because you can turn faster and have superior movement all around. You can "kite" them by doing the 180 jump and turn then 180 turn back to the direction you are heading before you land tactic to avoid them hitting your backside.

What I normally do though as soon as I got a stealth class unstealth and "open up" on me I try to tab target them immediately and either CC or knockback+root/slow them to give me some distance and cut off their bonus damage or ability they get from after they unstealth or "open up" on me. It also will give you a moment to see if they are a scoundrel/operative or a shadow/assasin. Always get a DOT (damage over time) spell on them so if they do restealth the damage will knock them out of stealth shortly after
