I don't really think there is an etiquette... It sort of depends on who you are dueling. Most times if im dueling a rogue I stand still and let them get the opener because this most closely represents an organic encounter. If I'm playing against a warrior, I typically start in charge range etc etc. Though when I'm dueling I'm typically working on an aspect of my play, so I typically want to challenge that aspect and I artificially add challenges that will help me get better. I usually only find myself dueling with my premade team or if I roll a new spec and I want to test a certain aspect of my new build.
I know that many people competitively duel and I've never really been drawn to that and while im okay with people popping consumes and stuff in duels, I think it mostly depends on the terms in which you are dueling. Is this just a random guy that drops a duel flag? I'm probably going to try and get every edge I can and flatline this nerd without overly investing in the duel. I'll use medium duration cooldowns and I'll use grenades etc, but im not dumping potions into this. Is this a duel with someone I shit talked? I will quite literally go broke dumping consumes and tryhard into this fight because my ego is more valuable than my gold. I've even been known to ask for nearby buffs from friends hoping that this turd doesnt call me out on it. Anyone have a healthstone? Is this a duel with a friend? We're probably on discord trying to work on something specific and we have a mutual objective.

Never making a single investment again until I 100% know it pays off.
