  • The heal and regeneration are applied in a radius around the user at the start of the skill, affecting the user and 4 other allies. This can affect allies behind the user.
  • The damage and knockback affect 5 enemies in front of the wave when it crashes down, approximately 3 seconds after the skill is cast.
