- This article is about the game mechanic. For other uses, see Healing (disambiguation).
Healing is a gameplay mechanic of replenishing health of the player or allies. Every character's most important source of healing is their dedicated healing skill, while most other skills and traits which provide healing can mostly only provide minor healing. The Healing Power attribute directly increases effectiveness of most outgoing and self-healing. The poison condition causes healing to be 33% less effective.
The healed amount appears as a green number aligned with the healed character on the screen. No numbers are shown for characters already at full health.
The healing skill occupies the sixth slot on the skill bar. All professions have four unique healing skills to choose from, and some races provide a fifth choice as a racial skill. These skills generally only heal the caster, with a few exceptions like Healing Spring and Healing Breeze which provides an area of effect that can also heal allies but to a lesser effect.
In addition to the dedicated healing skill slot, all professions have some means to provide minor, supportive healing. For example, a warrior can use shouts to heal allies when using the trait Vigorous Shouts and engineers can grant regeneration boon to allies near them with their tool belt skills. However, healing in this manner often only supplements self healing and avoiding and/or reducing incoming damage in the first place rather than becoming a primary source of healing for one or more players. Life stealing is also a manner of healing available to necromancers and thieves. Both regular healing and life stealing can also be done by use of certain consumables or upgrade components.
