  • Similar to how the elementalist trait Aquatic Benevolence functions, bonus 6 does not affect yourselves, only your allies.
  • As of April 15, 2014 Feature Pack update, healing power has been renamed to "Healing".
  • The amount healed by the (4) bonus at level 80 is:
 Healing.png Healing: 645 (1.0)?
Gained healing from the fourth bonus is currently not listed in the battle log but is applied correctly.
