Hi guys,

I have been searching around for some advice/guides on targetcalling in RBGs, but unfortunately with no luck. There was an AJ post, but it goes a few years back, and I would really like to have some recent words about it.

I would really appreciate your thoughts on this!

I know that it's a good idea to switch targets on defensive cds (ps, bubble, cocoon, barkskin etc) but in general - who do you wanna kill? resto shamans > holypalas > resto druids > priests > monks?

Also, when is it a good idea to kill dps rather than healers, and if we have a situation when 0 overextended enemy dps, which should you go for? frost dk/rogue/ret?

I know that the basics of targetcalling is to be aware of cooldowns, cc, speak loud and clear, assign fears/cyclone on other healers etc. But when it comes to the proper targets, I am a bit in doubt of what I'm doing.

Thanks in advance for your time helping me out!

there's no definitive answer that can be given as TCing is extremely situational and comp dependant

situations for killing dps over healers:
* you can do a hard switch to a dps and global them
* DPS has debuff stacks of some sort (FC on WSG as an e.g.)
* a pesky rogue is on your hpala alone stopping their healing, call a soft switch to make the pesky rogue go defensive
* dps has no huge defensive cds (thinking of mage/ret here) and no hots on them, hard switch to get them off the map
* the only person spinning a flag is a boomkin preventing your icy flows mage from capping
* they have a dead healer and two oom healers
* their dps are pressuring your healers more than yours are, so you need to peel them off of your healers and think twice about fucking with them

what do you mean 0 overextended dps? if there's legit only a frostdk/rogue your melee can target without dying then tell your team to start pushing in
