It's kinda sad that prot specs are able to run around battlegrounds and put out respectable DPS whilst being adequately protected, whilst the healer, who will almost never kill someone, can't even afford the luxury of "strong" heals. Last time I checked, BGs promoted strong team play and coordination. If there is a healer, you focus it down. It is a sad day when a healer cannot heal himself through a single opponent.

Seeing how most healers i see need at least 2-3 dps concentrating on them to have a hope of bringing them down, i fail to see how your comment is relevant. Try taking a tree out solo when ure a prot anything - its an exercise in futility. Ditto a holy pally.

My mage can take down a tree, and has done so repeatedly. My thing is to not fight them, not until they're casting spells. Most of them just sit there laughing their asses off if you are trying to do anything, so do nothing. Or maybe use your wand. React to whatever THEY'RE doing, not the other way around.

It depends on the mage spec. It can be very difficult for my mage to take down a tree druid in frost spec, since I've traded dps for survivability. On the other hand, as arcane, almost no tree druid will be able to heal through you casting your Arcane Blast up to 4 stacks, slamming them with improved Counterspell, then hitting them with a POM+Arcane Blast, Missile Barrage combo.Another easy way to kill a tree druid: Priests. They're incredibly ineffective against Mana Burn and Dispel. Even my Disc priest can win against a tree druid in one on one. Drain them in tree form, dps them when they're out of it, dispel those hots and innervate.Also, no prot spec has ever beaten my healers in pvp. None of them do the kind of burst in 1 on 1 that really makes a difference against a decent healer. At most, the healer will win in the end because the prot toon can never restore health; at worst, it ends up an endless endurance match. I've died against a prot paladin once in a 1v1 fight, and he so outgeared me there was never a chance I'd beat him in any spec. Protection spec toons with 50k health aren't coasting on their spec.
