So I am just dipping my toes in the water of arenas, and I can't figure out what is the best method for purging targets. I have recently just been using a /focus macro for my purge/hex/ws, this is nice for when I am focusing heals on one of my team mates and I can add some utility and cc to keep damage low or land a kill. I guess I could keep the focus macros and add normal cast to be targeted with mousewheel /target arena macros.

Anyhow, I just want to hear how the pros manage these spells.

I use arena targets for purge and on the purge button i also bound my focus arena enemy. This way you can see wat you are purging without actually selecting him and that for every arena target. tho i dont use focus macros for abilities, everything is on arena targets.

On my disc i use one macro for "purge". If my target is freandly and his target is an enemy i purge my tagets target. But if the target is enemy to begin with it purges that one right away. Normaly i only use the "target of target" one late into games. Befor then i prefer to use my arena targeting macros to jump between targets and do the purgeing normaly. When i do the "target of target" purging i normaly put the purge target on focus anyways so i can see the buffs on him, Just with one less bind.

Sometimes you want to simply purge the target your team is trying to get down. For that you can use a target's-target-macro.

If you play a balanced comp with one melee, one caster and you as the healer (this could be WLS or RLS) you can make a macro that purges the target of your melee buddy - without changing your own target around. It is a button you can mash whenever you have a spare global cooldown (if you know there will be something to purge - if not you're just wasting mana.

you really only want to purge when you need to get something off, like rdruids hots, or disc absorbs, purging say a frost dk's procs usually aren't worth the mana or the global to try purging

Or your doing something really right!

Also:
-Purge also works against the other heal's mana because they have to recast (druids, priests) and helps apply pressure. The higher your team's pressure, the less you have to heal.

-what separates the best players out is their ability to go offensive at the right moments/vs defensive. Think Hydra clutch manaburns/fears/MCs for example.
