Whats wrong about the infomation?[edit]

Can you explain what was wrong with it, rather then just saying something wrong.--Knighthonor 02:02, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Aside from terrible grammar and incorrect formatting:
"Healing refers to skill which aid self and others of injures and illness ." What says that it will only be skills? What skills? What are illnesses? Injuries? Since when is the wiki roleplaying?
"Each Profession will have a Healing Slot bound for Self healing, and allied support. " This is possibly the only correct line in it that doesn't need a source. If you correct the grammar, you'll end up not having enough for an article.
"There will not be Professions designed to only Heal." I'm going to need the source for that. As far as I know, this is pure player speculation.
"Some Professions will have Healing roles to specialize in." Source? -- Konig/talk 02:08, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Its all in the Blog. Look it up and read it. No Dedicated Healer classes in GW2. Ele Water Attunement will specialize in healing and support. Again, all stated in the Anet blogs. if you would take the time to read them like I did, then you wouldnt be as confused.--Knighthonor 02:15, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Roleplaying? This isnt a RPG? anyway, those words have meaning. Copy paste them to a online dictionary, and it gives a meaning for these words that would fit the description of a damaged person. So whats your argument again?--Knighthonor 02:15, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
I never said I was confused, but you give no sources thus others would be. Also, why don't you link for once? Or is that too hard for you. Lastly, the wiki documents, not roleplays. The correct terms are "damage and conditions" - don't treat me like an idiot who doesn't know what illness and injury means, I was being sarcastic and it was incredibly easy to get that I was. -- Konig/talk 02:20, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Edit: Oh, and I did read through the blog, and I looked through again, and I see nothing that says there won't be a dedicated healer profession. -- Konig/talk 02:22, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Then why are you arguing such a pointless matter?Was the words out of context? No, so its not, nor ever, was a problem --Knighthonor 02:23, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Yes, the words were out of context because they were not the correct terminology. And lovely how you ignore the biggest bit in my response. -- Konig/talk 02:27, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
I have to agree with the deletion, there simply isnt enough information for this article at the moment to be needed. Just to counter arguements, small articles like this, are here because its lore. Also on the arguement side, stop bickering. KH; I know you just want to defend your articles, but you have to remember thats its a community wiki and people are allowed their opinions.--User:Nautaut /(t) 15:39, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Hey, guys... it wasn't stated in the blog it is stated in the Healing and death article on the website here about half way down next to the picture of the girl on her back with the char standing over her. Just thought I'd clear that up now that it's been announced. later people! --Xerelin 16:12, 28 July 2010 (UTC)


The information on this page is already stated here. I suggest that these pages be merged or one of them deleted. ~ Bow 17:30, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

Nope...skills that heal and the healing slot are different. Healing skills that go in the healing slot are listed there, any skill that heals is listed here. Aquadrizzt (talk)(contribs) 18:21, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
Now that on this page there's a section for healing slot skills as well a section for any other skills that heal, it seems that this page doesn't really have any unique information.--Vassar 07:19, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
I agree. Let's put a merge tag and discuss. (Xu Davella 00:14, 25 March 2011 (UTC))


Mesmer exists. They can heal too! Yes4me 17:36, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

I made a mistake. It was thinking about the human racial healing skill "Prayer to Dwayna" missing on this list Yes4me 18:06, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

The Mesmer can use mantras with the trait Restorative Mantras for healing.

More info should go into this page[edit]

Healing is very comparable to damage. This page is missing:

  • General formula of how Healing Power affects healing: Base + (coeff. x HealingPower)
  • Talking about direct heals versus heals over time
  • And perhaps most importantly: Who and which skills can heal others. Especially with direct heals. How many people can it heal, ranged AoE or not, etc.. This info also needs to be added to the Healing skill page.

Adding info about each skill will probably require a table format (which I'm not yet comfortable with). --Alad (talk) 08:04, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Regeneration & +% Out going healing[edit]

There is a note saying effects like sigil of benevolence don't affect regeneration. Ive been testing stacking +% healing and regeneration is affected by it. Justice (talk) 03:49, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

What is the definition of the term "Outgoing Healing"?[edit]

What does "outgoing healing" mean exactly? I see this term used in many places in the game but have never understood why there was a need for the word "outgoing".
What are examples of outgoing healing and non-outgoing healing? -- 20:50, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Outgoing healing is the healing that you apply to others. Non-outgoing healing is the healing you apply to yourself. Incoming healing is healing others have applied to yourself. This is useful for the combat log because it allows you to see how much healing you're doing, while also occasionally stopping a flood of "You regen 5hp... You regen 5 hp..."
In addition to the combat log nonsense, we pay attention to outgoing effects because certain skills and effects exist that effect healing received or given.
Example of Outgoing healing
Example of Outgoing healing being modified
Example of Incoming/Self healing
Example of incoming healing being modified
  • Poisoned.png poison - reduces healing effectiveness on target
  • Agony.png Agony - significantly reduces healing effectiveness on target.

I hope that answers your question? Let me know if anything is unclear. --Rain Spell (talk)

For Channeled Vigor, that is an example of non-outgoing healing (or self healing) right? -- 20:19, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, that wasn't the best example. I meant to imply that incoming healing is also the healing that you apply to yourself. But incoming healing is kind of like that whole squares and rectangles quandry. (A square is always a rectangle, but a rectangle isn't always a square) Incoming healing is healing that is applied to you, but it isn't always coming from an outside source. In hindisght, I should have just had a category for self-healing, as you said. (edited it in) A simplified example for incoming healing is basically any skill that heals others, being used by someone else. (Ancestral Grace)--Rain Spell (talk)
