  • The initial heal happens upon the turret's creation.
  • The turret triggers every 3 seconds as long as there are allies within range. Staying in the turret's area will maintain regeneration as long as the turret exists.
  • This turret's overcharge ability Cleansing Burst applies when the turret next fires, not instantly.
  • Activating Detonate Healing Turret while Cleansing Burst is active will still trigger the AoE Healing combo.
  • Having no nearby targets for a certain duration will cause the turret to stop firing. It will resume firing when a friendly player comes near it.
  • The healing done by this skill is equal to (120 + Level^2 * 0.375 + Healing Power * 0.5).
  • Picking up the turret reduces the cooldown to 15 seconds, and can result in a higher amount of healing over time if used as soon as it is available.
  • When using this skill, the character will occasionally shout out one of the following lines, depending on race and gender.
