Healing skill

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A healing skill is a skill that occupies the sixth skill slot on the skill bar. All healing skills restore health via healing; some grant additional benefits. Each character has a core profession healing skill initially and other healing skills are unlocked with hero points through the hero panel.

Healing skills should not be confused with skills in other skill slots that can heal — only the skills listed below qualify. This is especially true for traits and upgrade components which trigger "on healing," referring to the use of dedicated healing skill. When used, healing skills interrupt any other skill cast.
