  • The wisp does not behave like a normal projectile; it slides across the ground and can easily fall off ledges or cliffs before reaching its target.
  • The heal is equal to (2 + Level^2 * 0.05 + Healing Power * 0.1).
In PvE, the healing coefficient appears to be 0.15. At 0 healing power, the skill does an expected heal per pulse of 322 * 1.2 (from natural mender trait) = 386, while at 1000 healing power, it does a heal per pulse of (322 + 1000 * 0.15) * 1.2 = 566.
