Google ESO AvA or PvP tips/pro tips and you'll get lots of videos to watch (if you're into that sort of thing).  Here are some reading resources, mostly geared to starting out in AvA.  You will find build tips, siege tips, and small and large group tips.

http://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/232232/pvp-for-beginners  short read on skills and counters

http://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/172558/surviving-cyrodiil-how-to-hopefully-die-less-often/p1   longer and more inclusive tutorial

http://deltiasgaming.com/2015/01/07/eso-pvp-builds/   some sample build for each class

http://esoacademy.com/eso-pvp-and-cyrodiil-guide/  hard numbers on siege damage

I did watch a few videos, some were good, others not so much.  Couple tips I picked up, shoot for 30% of group as dedicated healers...and protect them, stay "loosely" bunched together around "Crown"...if you run off or get separated from your group you're easy picken's, tanky'er builds draw aggro and keep enemy CC'd, DPS kill (while protecting healers), healers stay out of melee scrum (back from fight), and rezzing during battle will often turn the tide for you, don't just stand on the bodies of your fallen, get 'em up.

I invite any of our more experienced PvP'ers to chime in here, and validate the info above or give more current info, or some tips on what we are missing.

Someone shared this great resource with me, provides lots of ideas/concepts on how your AvA build should look.

Great info Verve, thank you!

 

Question:  Does armor color or wearing costumes matter ?  (Dark armor makes you less visible?, or costume doesn't allow others to see what sets you may be running? etc.)

Maybe it's only personal taste,.. but I see a lot of dark armor in Cyro.

color does nothing, costumes only hide weather you are in light medium or heavy...
