  • As of April 15, 2014 Feature Pack update, healing power has been renamed to "Healing".
  • Bonus 6 does not affect yourself, only your allies.
  • The 6th bonus provides Superior Rune of the Monk (effect), which gives +1% outgoing healing every time you apply a boon. This counts the number of stacks you apply and includes boons you apply to yourself.
    • Example: you apply two stacks of Might.png Might and one stack of Swiftness.png Swiftness to both yourself and one ally. You gain a total of six stacks of the rune effect.


  • The icon may have been inspired by the Karana Mudra Buddhist hand gesture.
