My one and only bit of advice to anyone foolis-, er, I mean brave enough to attempt healing in a battlegrounds is this: be aware of where your opponents' attention is likely focused...and DON'T BE THERE.A truism of PUG battlegrounds is that you generally have a few people trying to achieve an objective and a bunch of baby ducklings following behind, supporting the "leader." In my experience, this leads to tunnel vision on the part of the DPS; they fixate on what the leader's doing: the flag or on the random furball they encounter, and don't pay a whole lot of attention to much else.Another truism of battlegrounds of all types is that healers are like ice cream trucks; as soon as folks see one, they come a runnin'. So the trick to being an effective healer is to not be seen. But how do you pull that off, especially with addons that highlight you as a juicy target? Don't be where they are looking. Don't stand on the flag. Don't stand on the road. Try to skirt around the enemy's flank so that they're facing away from you, because they're probably not going to look behind them so long as their objective or an obvious HK is in front of them.Of course, against pre-mades using Vent...if you aren't in a pre-made yourself, you're dead. Repeatedly. Just accept it and take your medicine. Builds character.

That was very Sun Tzu. Be where you are strong and they are weak.
