  • Activating this skill enables the casting of Power Return twice. Casting Power Return once will recharge it over time back up to the maximum of two available casts. The cooldown for this skill triggers once the player has consumed all available casts of Power Return.
  • Some effects which trigger on using a healing skill such as that of Superior Rune of the Brawler can trigger on preparation of the mantra as well as on each use of Power Return.


  • Depending on the character's race, the mesmer will occasionally chant while charging the mantra.
    • Asura, charr, humans, and norn, chant "Health. Vigor. Recovery"
    • Sylvari chant "Hale. Vital. Recovery."
