  • Deals point-blank area of effect damage and then creates the symbol that pulses every second over 4 seconds, each pulse damaging foes and applying 1 second of regeneration to allies.
  • Due to the way stacks of regeneration with equal or higher healing power interact, this skill is prone to replacing high-duration regeneration stacks with much shorter duration stacks, but only when regeneration stacks are not at the maximum.
  • The regeneration amount is equal to: (202 + Level^2 * 0.07 + Healing Power * 0.6)
