Call your allies for help. Restores health while you channel it.

— In-game description

Bandage stops the health degeneration caused by Downed and heals the user 1% - 3% of their maximum health every 0.6 seconds. The healing increases 0.5% units every 5 ticks. After 12 seconds the maximum healing speed is reached.


  • Bandage heals from 1.67% to 5% of maximum health per second. When counting the lack of degeneration, the heal is from 4.17% to 7.5% per second.
  • The channeling will be interrupted if the user takes direct damage. Conditions do not interrupt it.
  • Quickness increases bandage speed by 35%.
  • When drowning, movement is allowed while channeling.
  • Bandage is unaffected by traits which trigger their effects while using channeled skills.


Displays 1 second activation time when drowning
  • Bandage cannot be activated when falling, even though the skill does not look disabled and the character does not yet get the falling damage.
  • The first tick heals for 2% of maximum health instead of 1%.
  • When a character begins using Bandage, they will occasionally shout out one of the following lines, depending on their race and gender.
