Shaman are one of the strongest classes in the game and really fun. They have alot of options available to them at any one time and have a easy time finding groups since they can heal.

From what I understand is warrior is good for PvP, Especialy how they ballanced things out. I maybe a lvl 17 so far but when I dueled I won 8 so far and lost 2, Elvenbane whooped up on me :)

sneaking isn't pking-- because it is a class-defining skill. that would be like saying that shaman using totems is an unfair advantage for shamans.

really any class can be good at pvp, you just have to get to know your class and know what to use when on different classes.

there's a big difference, imo, between dueling and pvp. in duels, each person has the chance to get ready and do battle. in pvp, it just starts, the only difference is planned pvp battles, say in the stv arena, were both groups agree to a certain ruleset from the get go.

in big battles, being a rogue is tough. you get singled out by warlocks, mages and hunters if you're visible with the large group. I found that stealthing, and then leaving the group's area to sneak around behind enemy lines to attack their casters/priests was probably the best thing i could do for my "side." by eliminating a priest or a mage-- generally a single target, because once you pop and attack, their buddies converge on you-- helped the overall group to achieve some forward progress.

i think a good thing to try is to have our rogues in one group all go stealth and get behind the enemy casters as a group, and then in sync attack different casters. hopefully that would create too many targets for their protectors to focus on, and would drop a % of their healing and nuking forces.

i dunno, just some thoughts....

that's not what i mean
you can't stealth under agro therefore it's more of a pk then a pvp because you're jumping somebody offguard as opposed to a fight with some forwarning

thats not entirely true. in pvp, there is no aggro 'list' like in pve, and a rogue can stealth unless they're being damaged or attacking

rogues can't stealth either when in "combat." but as soon as no one is keyed on you (attacking or casting) and the crossed daggers on your icon disappear, you can jump to stealth.

yea, like tibs said. sorry, I wasn't very clear with how I explained it.

there's an 'in combat' status that's triggered any time you take or deal damage, this is what prevents going into stealth. against mobs, as soon as you deal or take any damage from them, you're on their aggro list, and stuck 'in combat' untill all those mobs engaged with your group are dead.

in pvp, however, there is no aggro list. if you're in combat, all it takes is about 5 seconds of not attacking/being attacked before that status is dropped and you can go into stealth again. this means in large scale pvp, you're not stuck in combat untill every last enemy is dead, rather you can run to the back of your group, wait a couple seconds, and restealth. this allows stealth to be used as a pvp skill, rather than a 1 time pk skill as you say.

Also Rogues get vanish which will put you into stealth in combat. I think it has a 5 min recast and requires a regent.
