For the mage-hate, I recommend hanging around a friendly warlock. Nobody hates mages more than locks do and practically every BG mage is frost spec'ed. The thing about Frost is, it relies heavily on it's pet for CC and movement impairment to gain battleground survivability... so hang out with the class that has a reliable and effective long-lasting CC that disables their pets.It's actually surprising to me how few warlocks remember they have banish ! It's one of my most-used pvp abilities, I always banish the water elemental before nuking a mage, and for that matter if my opponent is also a lock, I love to banish his pet first, gives me an instant edge (since they rarely have the foresight to do it back at me).So ask the locks to banish on elemental and demons - it can be the difference between win and loss in my experience.I'm leveling a holy pally with engi myself though I've not tried a BG heal since level 10's - when I discovered that apparently nobody on my server's ally side thinks protecting healers are a good idea (I may try again now in the 50's). So I'll be trying your suggestion out ;)Oh and when I'm playing my lock main - ANYBODY who attacks my healer can rest assured of getting a fear on him instantly, and then I'm nuking him all out even if it means my former target gets to take me out, keeping the healer up helps the whole team. Mind you - there is no better feeling than when a rogue starts a stunlock on me as a lock and I sigh knowing I'll probably be dead before he is out of stuns... and then wham... my health bar starts climbing, I'm getting heals, stuns are over.. Howl of Terror ! DoT up, Drain Life, Redot, Drain Life, Drain Soul.... w000t rogue dead.(Yes, I have a rogue too - I am levelling her entirely in battlegrounds... nobody should ever tell me rogues aren't OP in pvp again - damn, it's just too easy on her).
