just as the title says, I thought it was just goblins that were targetting my dwarf cleric, but its rats, bats, and dragons all hating on her.

I have installed the gog version of MM 7 then installed Grey face patch.

I don't know what the problem is but I need some help thank you
I had the same problem as well. Maybe they deliberately attack the most vulnerable party member. Or does it have something to do with his/her position? My cleric was third in the character portrait bar in the UI.

Yes I do in fact, she is a dwarf cleric on the third position. I don't mind restarting but I just want to know what's going on, will it happen to every character thats on the thrid position? or is it just clerics that are bugged?
We need input from other MM7 players. In the meantime, you can protect your cleric with earth-based buffs to improve her durability.
While I really haven't noticed a selective targeting of my clerics in the game--it goes without saying that keeping her alive and conscious is probably my top priority.

Do this by getting her the chain and shield skills and spending your skill points there. I also would advise you to get her the best possible armor early in the game.

Do this by "prospecting" for kergar and erudine ore nuggets--in Bracada, Tatalia, and maybe even the Barrow Downs. The nuggets can be transformed into high end equipment in Erathia.

Warning: If you employ this "trick" it almost "breaks" the early game. If you harvest enough nuggets to equip your entire party with top of the line equipment--they become pretty much invulnerable to weak enemies you face early in the game.
I played without the Grey face patch and don't remember having problems with this issue.
It doesn't matter which character goes down first as long as you survive the battle.

Another character in my party could cast first aid so as long as one of them stayed conscious the rest of the party could get healed fast.
If you find an item of regeneration you don't even need external help to get back to consciousness.

The best solution is killing the monsters before they can do much harm.

Well this is all good and all but I'd like to make use of my knights and paladin who wears plate, It seems that when my cleric goes unconscious, the monster's targeting goes back to normal and diverse their attack on all my other characters. But as soon as I heal my cleric back to health, the monsters focus on her immedietly. So it is pointless to keep healing her.

I highly doubt that this was part of the design choice, so I will be starting another party and see if the bug still insists.
Some monsters have built in preference that depends on class, race and gender and attack based on that. So that is actually a game mechanic, an annoying one but its not a bug. However, if every single monster attacking you is only hitting your cleric then thats an issue. I would just build up her defense as best you can but if it keeps happening you may need to restart or try a reinstall. I remember the goblins would do that and is was highly annoying they would only attack my cleric. It made the early game very tedious. Most other monsters would spread their attacks out though.

LOL could be worse, you could be playing an elf cleric.
