Water Water


  • This skill applies regeneration and vigor on the fourth pulse when traited with Soothing Disruption, unlike other cantrip skills on their activation.
  • This skill will pulse 8 times over 2.25 seconds, for a sum base heal of 5304 and a coefficient of 1.2.
  • Most skills without cast times may be cast while channeling Ether Renewal. Most notable skills like auras or Blinding Flash can be used for defense.
  • Since this skill is channeled over 2.25 seconds and has a clear animation, it is vulnerable to interruption. When interrupted, it will be put on full recharge and any remaining healing pulses are lost. A good way to overcome this is to use the Rock Solid trait and attune to earth when this skill is activated.
