    Some comps literally only train healers, unless there is a mage on the other team, then they sit on it the entire time. Ret/dk/healer is probably the worst, from the dumpster leagues to 2700 they all play 100% the same way. Watching a rank one streamer lose to ret/frostdk/priest because the ret/dk can just sit on a target 100% of the time with no worries about cc, not even pop cds at the same time, and still force block in the first 20 seconds of a game, then a second a minute later, then kill right after that is pathetic, and shows the state of the game.
    You're a towel.

    Yep thats pretty much it, specially for something like a dk.

    As a Subtlety Rogue I find myself constantly swapping targets and off CC'ing. Primary kill target in a lot of comps tends to be the healer (Ret Paladins are another favorite), although even then it can often be somebody else depending on how defensives are used and positioning/opportunity.

    Nothing makes me happier than getting a 6 sec Kidney on an off target that's badly positioned, then following it up with a Sap and possibly a Blind without giving up much of any uptime on my target, and then Shadowstep/Kicking them when they finally get control of their character again and try to get a cast off. I can almost see them punching their screen as their partner dies.

    Most people can survive a round of CC with their defensives and it's easier to just zerg a healer and lose if it fails than it is to cycle two rounds of CC or pressure to pop defensives before CCing. Especially with a random to cap with.
    One cannot simply quit wow his way into Mordor.

    When there's more CC coming from the dps, its very difficult to sit on healers. With the nerf to CC and the addition of dampening, training a healer is often times the best strat.
